I see people everywhere I am
Some ignore and some say hi
Others smile as they go by.
I have lived here all my life
Except a few years where I tried to do
Something in my life that was all brand new.
I feel like at my age, I should know
At least a few I pass along my way
But no, I do not see anyone on this day.
Where have all the people gone
Who used to be in my life
Married a husband, or maybe a wife.
Now, as I get older, I search
The obits to look and maybe see
Recognition of a name that used to be.
Where has all the time gone
Am I really as old as they say
In my mind, it says I am getting younger every day.
