THE AGING PROCESS
Only then will one comprehend
These words from a “National Treasure”,
They must be viewed with perception
And humor…. thrown in for good measure.
That is to say: if not in my 89th year
This poem would make no sense,
It justifies who I am and where I’m at
And “why changes”…. must commence ? !
Yes, I know the jokes about “Geritol”
And the “Golden Years” have come at last,
But seriously, my first change was using a walker
It allowed me to step on the gas !
Now, I truly express gratitude to loved ones and friends
Lending a hand with the “changing” tasks,
I’ll try not to resist by offering sarcastic remarks
Like “If I wanted that done…… I’d have asked”.
But, please know that I am content
And thank God time and again,
I love looking back….but have to admit
The sun….. was much warmer then.
But, it is with some dismay…….. I must convey
Not all “changes” will I condone,
And if by chance….. I get overwhelmed
I’ll just say….. “leave me alone”
