“You merely are to merely be,”
These were the words he said to me.
“I am sorry sir I do not understand”
Was my reply to the old man.
“You asked for my thoughts,
Did you not?”
As I nodded, he coughed and gazed at me,
“Well that’s what I think”, continued he.
“I merely am to merely be?”
“Don’t overthink life Davey Lee”
Apparently the old man had no more to say,
He merely smiled and walked away.
