Why am I so old?
Why are you so young?
Why can’t we meet somewhere in between?
Why is this place so elusive?
With only a few decades separating us
It shouldn’t be that complicated to organise a meeting point
modern medicine being what it claims to be.
It does all sorts of other until recently unthinkable things.
Maybe, just maybe, we could share moments together
even notwithstanding the shortcomings of science
that unite us in ways that transcend age and time.
that make us feel more together than apart.
