Advantage

I am older
than my father now
mother sister lover too
when they left
knowing they would
not come back how
am I the one who lived
doing things they
did not do how
am I the wiser now
knowing what I do
are they not
still smiling
knowing they are
still young in all our eyes
never to reach the place
we're in doing
the things
we do
