Another one, gone.

At sixty seven
we are playing
musical chairs 
with death.
We go on tours.
We go to parties.
We 'do' yoga.
But regularly 
the music stops
and we find,
to our sorrow,
one more chair 
has been removed.
 This is hard;
this growing older ...
knowing how the story will ultimately end.
