The worst thing that could happen to me
is to lose a sense of purpose, you see.
I know that my age – which is ninety-two –
precludes me from most I’d like to do,
but I don’t want a day to pass me by
without a new thought or idea to try.
Mobility restricted, I will do my best
to move on with life – and not lose my zest!
