Bonzer Words!: The Lust For Life

Honor still the thrill of life, urges Frank Dawson in a poem which expreses rebellion against the ageing process.

Frank writes for Bonzer! magazine. Do visit www.bonzer.org.au

Ah! Even' glow,
glowing in the coming night
touch the tender
cords of my soul
and fill me
fill me with the gentleness of love.

Say not that I am old
that is but a phrase
a phrase time has made,
which is meant for those
who feel the weight of years
those who have lost
or never had
the sense of youth.

Old I may be in years to some
but to me
I center not in time
but honor still the thrill of life
in all its capacities.
So all I ask is to be filled
filled with the certainty of love
and the lust for life
to sustain me in the sacred glow of eventide.
