Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made.

Robert Browning

Break down with me!
The most painful is yet to come,
Forgetting, that’s why living occurred.

Disappearances; nothing can be done!
Assurances provide rest but are deception,
That beach sand was mollusca and bivalves,
Soon concrete baked by sun.

J.R. Tompkins
