“Come fly with me,” she said
“I’ll take you places you never imagined.
Just come this way.”
Off she floated and I found myself
Likewise floating along the pathway.
She seemed in such a hurry
I wanted to enjoy this newfound freedom.
“Slow down!” I called
“Let me smell, touch, taste,
So much to take in
So little time.”
“You must keep up for that very purpose,”
She chided, “there’s much to see and do before the end.”
“But I’m old,” I puffed exhaustion taking over.
“I know,” she said, “all the more reason for you to hurry on.”
