My Golden Glow - Poem by Stanley Cooper

I'm in a mid-life crisis
I was always slightly slow
Perhaps I need analysis
To accept my golden glow

Mid-life's come and gone
For me it's out of sight
This old buck is not a fawn
And for this I'm quite uptight

Yet, another hundred years, I reckon
Might be just too much for me
A lifetime that would be my second
I can't forsee with glee

So, here I am, accepting fate
As we all must do in time
I won't complain, at this late date
For living past my prime

From here-on-in, I'll golden glow
And be happy to have made it
From here-on-in, my life will flow
As I hopefully upgrade it
