I’m still intact

Don’t dare dispute it

I still can jump

your hoop, right through it


You frown and scowl

Your brow so deep

I protest in silence

So not to wake your sleep


Time is not gentle

It pushes and shoves

Times hands are rough

Time wears away love


Breezes blow through here

Not staying long

I rejoice in their visits

And sing with their song


You know these things

Yet your memory is weak

I could help you remember

If you would let me speak


So now, I’ll be still

Composed and compliant

It just doesn’t matter

I will still be defiant
