The Little Boy and the Old Man
Said the little boy, “Sometimes I drop my spoon.”
Said the old man, “I do that, too.”
The little boy whispered, “I wet my pants.”
"I do that too," laughed the little old man.
Said the little boy, “I often cry.”
The old man nodded, “So do I.”
"But worst of all," said the boy, "it seems grown ups don’t pay attention to me."
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
"I know what you mean," said the little old man.
At this stage in my life, I am both the old man and the young boy.Does that make sense? Probably not, but it does to me.
