The Secret

"You get old and you realize there
are no answers, just stories."
~Garrison Keillor

The secret he’ll keep till the day he dies
 
No one will know, his lips sealed forever
 
Confession he did, eyes toward the skies
 
The truth to his Maker and Redeemer
 
Not ‘nother woman neither an affair
 
And no forbidden illicit pleasures
 
No theft, murder that anyone’s aware
 
Neither pot of gold nor buried treasures
 
The decades passed; now ninety-five years old
 
Fruitful exciting life he’s been given
 
Through the years his secret remained untold
 
It helps that the secret he’s forgotten!
 
Thus, be grateful! The blessings of old age
 
He’ll keep the promise as he leaves the stage
