The Cost Of Age

It's not long before you squint
Aches protrude
When you last bent
Cracks and squeaks
Valleys and peaks
Early morning thoughts
Early evening plots
Deeper meanings to smaller things
Smaller cares  
Reminders ring
An easier plan
A course of action
The work of a life
The sowed satisfaction
Memories not so vivid
Angers blows by calm not livid
The settles tea that needs a swirl
The ice, the sugar, the polished pearl
Value in life minus the debt of strike 
Infinite living
Is the cost of life
