I’ve been out of sorts of late,
It’s been some time since I’ve been in this state,

Headaches and fever plague me,
Sudden bouts of cough seize me,

I’m trying hard to snap out of it,
Trying to perk up and show some grit,

But I must say it’s not so easy,
I’m fatigued and feel all dizzy,

I guess I’m not that strong,
There are notions about my health which are wrong,

I am slowly succumbing to the woes of age,
I hope in future signs of ill health I am able to gauge
