Merely To Be

“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.
