Update

I was advised that instead of retiring, I ought to take a break. Maybe that is the better option. I have taken breaks before, but perhaps a long one is in order to get the best refreshment? I just don’t know yet how long is reasonable.

1953

A jukebox in a malt shop,

playing a sweet melody,

filled an old man’s memories

as he thought back nostalgically

the year in mind was 1953

Flashback-

Two hearts were beating, nervously

young love was blooming beautifully,

and the future was a mystery

All these years on,

though his Love is long gone

He still smiles & tells their story,

says “she was the one”
