Getting On

Slower now than younger men.
None too steady, needs his stick.
Feels the cold despite his coat.
Winter cuts him to the quick.

Don’t be fooled, he’s lived a life -
bent by years and lessons learned.
Life has asked a lot of him.
All he has is what he’s earned.

Take time out to talk a while,
hear his stories, softly spoken.
You might be more than surprised
at what in you might be awoken.
