The Days

The days of challenge
and the joy of living
fade into the oblivion
as the years pass.

The man and his wife
work with dedication
secure every opportunity
with a passion.

They struggle to earn
a decent revenue. The children
grow in no time. Win honours
A worthwhile return.

The man turns old and grey
The wife no sooner. They
look around. Espy what they have
missed out on many experiences.

They retire with lfewer
commitments. Wish to enjoy
what they could not. Realize
they are beyond.
