On His Eightieth Birthday

To my ninth decade I have tottered on,
And no soft arm bends now my steps to steady;
She, who once led me where she would, is gone,
So when he calls me, Death shall find me ready.

The poem gives an inside view of an old man's desperate mind. A very emotional write. Thanks.
