Susan Davis Gabbay’s most recent poem to appear here was “Poet, Why Do You Weep?” (May 2018).

By Susan Davis Gabbay

Age gives and takes;
as I grow older
My stamina is less
so too my strength, my memory.
Yet with age I have been given
knowledge, empathy,
I value the exchange
Until I can’t open a jar
or find the right word
in conversation.

    Your words are so perfect. Speaking for myself, being a woman of a certain age, I have those same feelings on a daily basis. Age brings wisdom, empathy and many valuable things, but also aches and pains and a bit of brain fog to go along with it all. Wonderful poem.
