POEM: Some Things Never Age
.

Old bones long for a warm sun
The winters have become longer, colder
The spirit grows weary and impatient
The curmudgeon becomes older, bolder

The memory begins to fade in and out
The eyes are clouded, the hearing diminished
Crows feet and ear hairs begin to sprout
Thoughts are begun and left unfinished

Friends and family begin to disappear
Love is now a warm ember, no longer a flame
If age and attitude are causing you fear
Don’t fault God, you have¬†only yourself to blame

The soul never waivers, God’s will to be done
Each day an adventure, His name to proclaim
Mother Nature inspires each spring a renewal
The Uni-verse all glorious its wonders to exclaim

A legacy becomes a motive to achieve
Can I make this world a better place
Find the heart and open it with compassion
Make a wrong right with a warm embrace

Can you become the person God wants you to be
Enjoy your age, whatever it may be,
life has no guarantee
