' Grow Old Gracefully'


Youth can't last forever
everyone has finite existence
scale not the days of yesterdays
yet live to the fullest the whole time

Life becomes short
as time fleets so fast
there is little we can do
but have much to share

Live each moment
one at a time for best
venture into the world
explore the challenges

With each experience
that we hurdle each day
shall become memories
these shall linger infinitely

Aging is after all not wasting
even when wrinkles dominates
and hair grows gray and white
for as long as we grow gracefully
