I know it comes to us all ?  But can you imagine being old.

You look in the mirror and hardly recognise the fellow looking back at you ?
I still feel 17 years of age on my side of the mirror.

I have a good family and grandchildren, whom I love dearly and visit them often.

But outside this circle I am desperately lonely, I seemed to have slowed down so much and become weak, unable to do things I found so easy in my youth. I have developed arthritis, which stops me from opening doors,turning on taps,opening bottles, I am at times unable to cleans myself properly ?
Which makes it particularly difficult to face my decline in life.

I am old! but I still have feelings and memories and I miss my life.
The bottom line for all of this is.
I am unable to share my feelings with someone special, to gently kiss that special person goodnight.
I just wish I had someone, I'm weary of being alone.

Today is the worst day since yesterday.



  1. Aging is a difficult process, where I see us eventually becoming toddler-like again. it is tough to watch our mortal bodies lose their abilities. I look in the mirror, I see me, but when I see a picture of me, that's when I wonder what happened to me.
    I'm saddened that you feel lonliness at all. May you live in peace and joy and friendship.

  2. thank you for your kind comments
