Silk Skinned Babies…

Back when we were just born… silk skinned babies… our Eyes… so Crystal Clear… we never dreamt of failing vision… getting old with tufted ears…

Back when are youthful legs could strut so boldly… those Glorious Days of Our Youth… we never thought of drooping shoulders… let alone losing hair and tooth…

Back when we were Keen of speech… our blustering.. swaggering… conduct… of pure  bravado wing…. never thought that we’d wax dull so slowly… easily confused by everything…

Looking way back then to our heyday… took as a guarantee all of our tomorrow’s… could have never believed we might die lonely… leaving us dormant on our comfortable porches… rocking out sorrow…

Back when our future… seemed like it would last forever… could have never known that we’d arrive… on our knees with prayer hands Skyward… asking God that we might stay alive one more day…
