Have you ever almost written a poem
And have no idea how it will end?
Or late at night taken the wrong train
And wondered where the last stop will be?
Found an old photograph of yourself
And realized that person no longer exists?
Gone to a funeral for someone you knew
And knew your tears were for your own?
Retired the gold watch they gave you
So you wouldnâ€™t hear time ticking away?
Then heard your child say she loves you…
And known the truth of your immortality.
