Growing Older



GROWING OLDER

 

Growing Older

 

Not  quite as haughty

But wiser today

Not quite as childish

A little more gray.

 

Not quite as active

As I used to be

Not quite as nimble

I ache at the knee.

 

Not quite as chipper

My gait is now slow

Not quite as robust

Or eager to go.

 

Not quite as hearty

My joints are now sore

Not quite as ageless

I stand at God's door.

 

Not quite as youthful

I'm ripe on the vine

My fruit is now mellow

Like brandy red wine.
