You remember when you were a lad things you did were brave swinging from the highest tree Six inches from your grave. Back then you could run, fast play ball forever and a day sleep would come when it had to Your hair was natural, not Gray. They say the new fifty is forty in this new millennium but sometimes it doesn't work that way You're not at your premium. Your bones creak, your neck gets sore bending down is sometimes a task you try your best to live younger While reaching for the oxygen mask! To be healthy you need to be careful you may deal yourself a blow like cutting the old nails On your unreachable big toe. When you shower and glance at your figure it's not as it used to be the muscles are getting flimsy And you struggle to properly see. Some people grow old gracefully just accept it as it comes growing old isn't necessarily a draw back Or receding mouth gums. But when it comes to memory things you can recall are quite clear the good things that happened in your life You will always hold so dear..
