The Comings & The Goings

Watching some Youtubes, in this case interviews with an 83 year old Ginger Rogers and a same age Gloria Swanson. Remember them?

The Comings & The Goings 🚵‍♂️

In all sorts of ways they come and go.
Here today, gone tomorrow.
Should we sorrow?
Friendships, family, famous folk –
Up in smoke, we left, and tested:
Naturally bereft, but tested.
Wrested from the arms of fate
For the moment,
Only for…
But soon or late,
The moment puts in an appearance.
And a brand new gate is opened.
Our distinctive gait goes on, un-halted.
Slowed a bit by life’s emotion,
But, as hinted, living’s motion
Not slowed in the slightest.
After all, it is a test,
Not to be bested by the darkness of night’s
Comings and its goings.
