Rambling on about Aging

By Walt Perryman

I am rambling on about aging this morning,
If youíre not old enough, it may be a warning.

As I am going through life and getting older,
My mind seems to be getting a little bolder.

When I was young, I didnít say what I wanted to.
But nowadays something is changing because I do.

Before getting old, I often did not say what I meant.
Now, I do if I am talking to a hobo or the president.

I was always trying to be something that I was not.
But not any more or maybe itís something I forgot.

Now, I tell it like I see it, and sometimes Iím wrong.
Maybe this is what happens after we live this long.

Some of you may not know what I am talking about.
But when you are old enough, you will figure it out.
