LOSING THE TASTE


LETTING  THE TASTE  GO

My Dad suffered with diabetes,

His younger of sons did  too…

He followed his doctor’s directions

To see his health improve.

His doctor said real ice cream,

Half-a-cup each he could have each day…

My Dad thought, instead of indulging,

He’d let taste and desire fade away.

In time he said didn’t miss it,

Even if others came near with bowls…

His advice was for more than ice cream,

For his family  to better their souls.

The time for some things temporal

May not stay as long as we wish….

There are times when we must withdraw from the search

To find that special dish.

Both taste and desire are meant to fade.

Most of us may never complain…

It’s not worth the expense of a jump-start to try

To accomplish the improbable again.
