    Age Defined

    I have carried the children and grand
    children and taken steps that were lost
    even some that had direction

    I have walked highways and uncertain
    avenues of confusions fast lanes. I
    have danced to the blues, bee bop and
    hip hop that was cool. These are now

    Limber Legs

    I have changed many diapers and hung
    many clothes to dry, waved to a lot of
    folks as I see them strolling by.

    Touched a lot of faces and caressed a
    a lot of tears through out the years
    It’s just my age it appears. I have rubbed
    some backs and held some hands a lot
    of touching and cuddling with my dear
    sweet man. These are now

    My Hands

    Seen a lot of pain and tears and colors of
    blue just not for myself but for you two.
    oh I have driven cross countries and seen
    wonderful things, but with the age glasses
    come and poor vision it brings.

    I might have to look a lot closer and squint
    sometimes but I thank God that I can still
    see the color of a rose and feel which way the
    wind blows. These are now

    My Eyes

    My age is not defined by how you see me now
    but all the uncharted adventures that my life
    does hold and if you have a minute to sit
    awhile all them there stories can be told.


    I have a life time of courage and wisdom to
    share and if you need some I got plenty to
    spare. So when you see an older person
    don’t just look at the outside, come closer
    take a closer look right in there eyes.

    For there is the life that has been stored in
    there soul with so many wonderful things
    they would love to share about how there
    life did unfold.

    Don’t feel sorry for them and think “the poor
    thing”, cause if you are blessed to live there
    life time then your heart will surely sing and
    wonderful adventures to others you can bring
    it’s not just the time but my age defined.
