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鈥檓 older too. So, there鈥檚 no way I鈥檓 going to miss this special day. So, here鈥檚 to the older generation, we鈥檙e 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鈥檚 that you say?

Yes, I鈥檓 more than okay

I鈥檓 happy to be on this ride

I take ageing in my stride

There鈥檚 one thing I鈥檝e learned

And that鈥檚 not to be concerned

Enjoy the moment you鈥檙e in

Because you won鈥檛 see it again

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.

Franci Eugenia Hoffman, fractals are forever :) Thanks a lot.

Thank you for the shares. :)

#2 Thank you for reading and commenting. I originally wrote this as a joint effort contribution for a fellow WordPress blogger and felt it added to a worthwhile cause.

Franci Eugenia Hoffman: Thanks for sharing this buzz. I always say the following about age: 1) Age is just a number. 2) it's not the number of years in one's life, but the life in those years. 3) Like a fine wine, I like to think we all improve with time.
