My Bedside Table

My Bedside Table

Old age is catching up with me,
From my toes up to my head.
I felt it most while gazing
At this table by my bed.


I laid my hair piece over there,
My own has grown quite thin.
The hearing aid is next to it;
I’m deaf ’til its put in.


Also, I can’t see a thing,
Without my glasses on.
They’re beside my false teeth;
Yes, my own are gone.


I kinda get the feeling
As at those things I stare……
There’s less of me here in this bed
Than on that table there.

 

I liked this poem that a friend of mine showed me.

I tried searching around for the poet who wrote this, but to no avail.

    This is truly gorgeous, meaningful and inspiring, seriously! The amount of imagery it has placed in my head, painting pictures in my head. The more I am reading poems, the more I am become more passionate about reading them. They really paint images into your imagination, in which no two people will experience the same imagination. This is giving me a whole new appreciation towards poetry. I’m slowly preferring poetry over movies/TV series!

    Ps. Fantastic blog layout! I’m really feeling it, and enjoying the effort and solid design you put into it, keep it up!
