Acceptance is an important word
That our lives depend.
For without this virtue,
One could easily go round the bend.
I have now accepted the fact
I am suplus to requirements.
My my kith and kin,
Now that I'm in retirement.
I have written, phoned and emailed,
But from them no response indeed.
But they know where I am
Should they be in amy need.
I have a great sense of humour
That;s been neglected of late.
Not being able to laugh at life
Is something that I hate.
So from this day forward
I'll accept what life has dealt me,
And should I feel unhappy,
I'll take a walk beside the sea.
