Young at heart

by fabian cortez

I stare at a reflection

Yet I don't truly see

As steam builds

On a bathroom


I block my view

Age takes a toll

Yet I am young

At heart

How sporting

I once was

But my children

Now are grown

Yet still I feel

Young in spirit

Though I know

I'll soon be


You'll all crowd

Around me think

He lived a good

Long life

See me old

Then say so

How cuts

Deep as a knife

So I'd rather

Be with others

Who I don't really


Please remember

Me as younger

You don't

Need to see

Me go
