Lone Wolf

Tags: youth, age, nature, time

Time does finally seize us all.



An old alpha peers at a winter moon.
For lady wolf, his heart does swoon.

Longing for days when they pranced.
Stalking like shadows they advanced.

Their kits safely snuggled in the den.
A time nearly lost, way back when.

Now having to prowl the forest alone.
No longer this alpha sits on his throne.

Not having a mate or pack to call his own.
Frail and weak, just hair, skin and bone.

Reliving days when he was a young pup.
Memories and dreams being conjured up.

Laying nestled under the boughs of a tree.
Life nearly lived, soon his soul will be free.

Baying a final howl at the full silver moon.
To his maker a message, I'll be home soon.
