The Girl In Me


My hair mostly gray
Hips and bones are frail
The knees soon to betray
But with the girl in me
I bet I can still sail

Music and words tend to jumble
Mornings are hard on my joints
Sometimes I am likely to stumble
But with the girl in me
Never do I lose my poise

I have travelled so far and wide
Read books I may not remember
Getting older there is a downside
But with the girl in me
A memory brings fun and laughter

Your love keeps me alive
Not scared or never afraid
Even though I can no longer jive
But with the girl in me
My spirit will never ever fade
