So you've heard the story several times before
Please listen very closely, oh don't try to ignore
They were sons & daughters, moms & pops too
Thier care and well being is now trusted to you
They once had full lives, raising families and such
They worked and fought battles not asking for much
Now that thier older and as hard as they've tried
They can't do the things they once did with pride
Help them be happy, compassion always choose
Remember, all will eventually stand in thier shoes

How very true

You are so right that we will all be in their shoes someday. I'm not far from being there now.
Thank you for your poem.
