Getting Older

By LinnieJane Burks

(For you and for me! Be happy and be thankful!)

Getting older cannot be stopped,
Always the ticking of the clock.
Sure, senility may be setting in,
Can't remember if you're going or have been!
Many things have left us which we hate to mention—
But, dentures and eye glasses are some great inventions!
Youth is gone, never to return
But, oh! the wisdom we have learned!
The smell of flowers! the touch of a hand!
The smile of a child, or just to walk on free land!
All our good senses have been increased,
Love compassion, gentleness and peace.
The joys of life can mean so much more
When you stop and consider what God may yet have in store!
