From a dream I wakened
Sleepy eyes I opened
Refreshed
Energized
Feeling like a teen;
Then reality set in!
 
My shoulders ache
All my fingers shake
Throbbing
Trembling
Hurting down to my feet
Feeling ill and unfit
 
My body the far side of sixty
Though my mind but twenty
Rueful
Yet resigned
When young, myself I abused
So now I’m paying my dues!
