Old Age

Dan Gibson, author

What is getting old?
Lines in the face
Silver in the hair
Walking at a slower pace
Eyes more watchful than ever before
Listening and saying less
Words mean much more
Time out for good manners
Respect for young and older
Things use to seem important
Are now not so
If you allow it
Wisdom comes with age
We see beauty everywhere
Young are too young to see
Old age takes nothing for granted
We make most of each day
Eternity is just a transition
Life's next phase!
