Old Man

Pz-avatarby Jack River09 Feb 2017

What's wrong, old man?
You've gone astray 
I know not where or why 

Elusive, yes
But many say 
You never were alive 

Perhaps you're lost
And unaware 
We're waiting just the same 

As long ago
When through the air 
You first gave us your name 

I hope you know
That we are but
Cold apes without your grace 

How could you, though 
Your sense was cut 
From form without a trace 

Come back, again
And make us whole
Fear not the mortal whisper 

We’d like to think 
Your aching soul
Never would have missed us
