Life's Guessing Game

What will it be like
if I die at 92?
Will they mourn for me?
What will they say during
the eulogy?

Most of my friends
will have been gone by then!
my wake will probably be
a party of some sort.

My children will have
been just as old as I, worrying
about their own health,
financial burdens and
family affairs.

My children's children?
Certainly not. For them I will
just be some old
ghost of a past, a forebear
who lost the battle
of life's inconsistencies.

But then, why worry
about that?
I will not live to die
at 92.
It's more likely
to be at 90!
