This is a tough question. I am looking for a poem about middle age. Cannot remember any of the exact wording or the author. But it goes something like this... "When a man turns 40, he starts gently closing doors to rooms he knows he will never visit again." Sorry I can't be more specific. Any help or comments greatly appreciated!
