Noticing your age–getting older
When do you feel like you are getting older?
Is it when the songs you liked when you were young are now considered all this but good east to the next generation?
When I was younger, I rarely liked classic music or jazz.
Now I do. Does that mean that Im getting older?
Have you noticed that an actor or an actress that youve liked for a long time is getting a lot ofwrinkles or gray hair?
Do you notice your age when you are with others like at a reunion of some kind?
Do you notice your age when you are looking in the mirror?
Does that scare you?
Do you find that the kind of clothes you like are thought of the clothes for a mature person?
I respect people that age gracefully.
It seems like that many people fear getting older.
They dont want the wrinkles to show.
I have to confess I have a few gray hairs.
Oh, NO! Even though the body may get old,
I think people can be young at heart.
My father fits right in when he plays with his grandkids.
Its not awkward at all.
He comes up with the best games.
He may not be able to jump on the bedlam as the kids do,
but he can wrestle and dance and go for walks and play catch.
His mind is deep and his heart is warm.
I hope I age gracefully like dad.
