Joy Of Aging

 

The world

slows down.
That’s

a good thing.
Priorities change,

also good.

The rat race fades

into memory.

It’s now

time

to appreciate things

.
Let the next generation

battle

to climb

the ladder,
keep their

heads

above water.
Time

for walks

with the dog,

stoping

to smell the

flowers.

The body creaks

where it didn’t before,

but the

wisdom

gained

over the years
more than

compensates.

Reading and learning

still much fun.

Smile at the young ones

as they expound,

knowing

time and experience

will mellow

their sound.
Enjoy the children,

appreciate the miracle,

then smile

when handing

them back.

Reflective walks

in the woods

wondering

what other

paths

you could have

followed.

Then realizing,

the one you

chose

lead you to

the woods.

As time passes

and the

young ones

grow old,

it’s important

to remember,

we had our time,

our time

in the sun.
Prepare to

move on,

your time is now

done.
