    Old gray head one on the porch
    What history has your eyes seen
    As age requires you pass the torch
    To someone young and green

    What wisdom to them will you impart
    As their journey begins
    How will you prepare their hearts
    As they struggle to win

    And carve their place in History
    Against seeming impossible odds
    Will you tell them to go forth diligently
    Even though the road seems hard

    Will to them you testify
    Of God’s abundant mercy and grace
    And of how he guided you with his eye
    Along life’s difficult obstacle race

    Old gray haired one taking your rest
    As life’s marathon winds down
    What answers will you reveal of life’s test
    To those following that will abound

    Will jewels of wisdom to them you’ll give
    In the waning moments of your setting sun
    Enabling them a better chance to live
    Victoriously the race they run

    As the elders pass down their wisdom to the young, their trials in life weren't lived thru in vain. Strength in your words indeed.
