Are You Still You?

are you

still around?

do you still laugh

loud

and hearty

do you have children,

grandchildren

are you gray?

do you relish life

every moment

like me;

are you still

in that cold place

of steel

far

from Boston?

it’s been long

since

we left

our youth,

it’s fresh smell

it’s taste,

it’s dreams–

how many of yours

are realized…

are you able

to smile

with aching bones

and the delivering trust

of time.

have you

gotten

this far?

do you still reach,

stand,

soar,

love,

demand?

are you

still

you;

are

you

still

you?
