Old man’s tales

Sat on a bus and heard an old man reminisce

While a younger man sat and wondered why this is

And the old man said some people believe in reincarnation

Said many people remembered past life experiences

And the young man replied I think it’s all just coincidence

Which made me want to turn and say it maybe synchronicity

But the old man shrugged it off and continued to reminisce

And if the young man had any sense

He would listen to every little word he said

For he was passing on words of wisdom

And worldly wise experience

Built over many years of living life in every moment.

It made me smile to hear him talk the way he did you see

Because he to me was full of knowledge

To be heard by ears that could hear

And eyes open up enough to see.
