The Touch of Age

Photo courtesy a hasty Google search
The beauty of a closing life -
Gentle, patient, slow decline -
Wisdom of the gathered years
Marked in every wrinkle line.

I, who have so small a life,
Grasp for words that may define
The benediction of a touch...
Palsied fingers clutching mine.
