We Get Better, Not Older

We Get Better, Not Older

International Day of Older Persons October 1

I wrote this little ditty, perhaps a bit silly but no willy-nilly. Just like you, I’m older too. So, there’s no way I’m going to miss this special day. So, here’s to the older generation, we’re worth the celebration!

My days are not done

I rise with the sun

Nights are mine to keep

I have no fear of sleep

As long as I awaken

My life not forsaken

What’s that you say?

Yes, I’m more than okay

I’m happy to be on this ride

I take ageing in my stride

There’s one thing I’ve learned

And that’s not to be concerned

Enjoy the moment you’re in

Because you won’t see it again

#7 Thank you, John. I hope you get to relive those special moments again and again, and even if in your mind. 😉

Franci I missed the older person's day, must have been enjoying the moment elsewhere. Actually I was on a sandy beach reading a novel, and watching the waves gently breaking. I hope to do it again and relive the moment, if only in my mind.
Oh I enjoyed the poem.
