One of the things we learn as we age--
when we get to the bottom, we must turn the page.
As writerly souls, we don't run out of ink--
we continue on, we continue to think.
Chapter after chapter, time after time--
our epics continue, oft turn on a dime.
What then is life but a series of stories--
disasters, heartbeats, assorted glories.
My grandmother who was a most notable sage--
always said to remember we must turn the page.
For life goes ever onward, much like a book--
when it needs revision, take another look.
When a happily ever after seems dark--
the sun will still rise a shadow to mark.
Tomorrows are measured in a humanly wage--
so it's well to remember to just turn the page.
Although a lifetime will come to an end--
it's still a pageturner, we go on, my friend.
