I Will Never Pretend I am not Old!


 I’ve often heard it said

That getting old is only

In our mind.

Would you mind

If I set the record 

Straight?


Aging is such a wonderful

Miracle.

Wisdom

Waking

Seeing joy

Recognizing that 

Aching that helps us appreciate

The sunny mornings

And the fire on those

That are dewy and damp.


Yes growing old is

One of the great

Joys of 

Life. I will never pretend

It does not exist!

I am grateful.
