Our Sunset Years

by Gowri Bhargav

I will kill my time, counting your grays,
While you look at my bald head reflecting your wrinkled face,
Together let’s sing duet songs that hopelessly rhyme,
Counting your grays, I will kill my time.

The things I forget, you shall remember,
Unlike our youthful days, never shall we lose our temper,
If I mess up the dates, blame my years sunset,
You shall remember, the things I forget.

Honey! If I sleep forever, do hang out with our neighbor Steve,
Else Iโ€™d appear as a funny ghost lest you grieve,
Think! My clammy hands and stinky socks will cease to bother,
Do hang out with our neighbor Steve, Honey! if I sleep forever.
