Inherited Wealth

As I age

I come to realise

How firm foundations

Have upheld my life

My mother’s love

My father’s care

My siblings

Even my dog’s kind stare

Are all supporting me

Even now


I live alone

But happy here

I read I write

Enjoy a beer

I am blessed in my son

And grandsons fine

I have come through darkness

See sunshine

Sorrow shall not win

Let’s make that clear


In the morning

Life begins

Slowly getting

On my pins

What to do today

A gospel thing

Write uplifting messages

Others fear dark presages

Bring a light to bear

On this short day
