Breathless he climb the stairs

a poem by Charles Fisher, UK

Breathless he climb the stairs
Afraid to take another step
His heart beat fast
His hand rest on the hand rail
God, he wish he was young
He run up these steps for fun
His life was filled with the rays of sun
Old age has took hold
The hand rail feels cold
He now feels afraid of being old
He's got to depend on others hands
To help him to get things in his life done
Alone he feels as he stand
He can't stand this feeling of insecurity
He's scared if moves he'll fall
He's loss his confidants and ability
He doesn't want to be in this place called old age
His final pages of his life
God, how he wishes he was still in
The beginning pages of his life
When his life was filled with the rays of sun
He run up these steps for fun
The fun of youth is long long gone
Stranded he stands for a moment or two
Then two strangers help him to the top
Grateful for the helping hands he says thanks
He can manage the rest of the way on his own
But he's now afraid of the last page
