The years flew by so quickly
I never heard them fly
Yet a glance in my mirror
Tells a tale I can’t deny
A little more grey
Crept in my hair
I guess it’s time to change it
Should I do it …do I dare?
A little more forgetful
(Where did I put my keys?)
I try to be more careful
Of falling on my knees
The saddest part of Aging
Is the loss of many friends
Whom we loved and cherished
Right to the very end!

But life is for the living
To savor and enjoy
“Life is what you make it”
Is the attitude to employ
No need to be depressed
If wrinkles should appear
They’re signs that you invest yourself
And really are sincere!
Old Age is a blessing
A gift from God above
A chance to make amends
To the people that you love
Old Age is indeed a blessing
It comes to very few
Be careful how you live it
For God has chosen you!

Old as You Feel
Popped in to see if you were still posting here. So you have never really aged and still writing good rhyming poems! When I get time I must have a look around here again.....

On my 90th Birthday
A beautifully written simple poetry
Words are chosen by avoiding tough ones
It flows like a smooth stream with clear water
They poet has discussed philosophy superbly
I enjoyed each line and I am awaiting my 90 !
