Old Age

Written by Fausat Abiola

Was it just days ago or has it been years?
When I last saw you
Looking young and so virile
Walking gaily and bright
Your eyes sparkling with the vigor of youth
Under the beautiful sunrise
You glow with so much brightness
Like the green leaf in autumn
Now its sunset
Winter has come and the leaves turned yellow
And the wrinkles have appeared
On your once beautiful face
The smile gradually fades
Like the sunset fades in the west
Is this old age?
They say in it, you lose the glory of the form
But you have only become better with age.
