Twilight of Our Lives



TWILIGHT OF OUR LIVES

 

Twilight of Our Lives

 

Old age is full of wisdom

That youth can never know

Though eyesight now is failing

Our gait is getting slow.

 

Old age is like a harvest

That started out a sprout

Now ready for the reaping

Our crop has mellowed out.

 

Old age is like the autumn

It doesn't make a sound

A time of sweet reflection

As leaves come tumbling down.

 

Old age is like the sunset

Its color brings the light

As evening shadows gather

It fades into the night.

 

Old age is like a pirate

Who steals your youth away

He takes the sail and anchor

Our ship begins to sway.

 

Old age is like a typhoon

The seas may get too ruff

But God doth gently whisper

He'll say we've had enough.

 

Old age is like a bright light

More brilliant than the sun

We'll find a lovely rainbow

When life on earth is done.

 

Old age is like the red grapes

Turned into sparkling wine

Its fruit, aged to perfection

Has ripened on the vine.

 

Old age is like collateral

Tis money in the bank

Our debts have been forgiven

We have our God to thank.

 

Old age is like a promise

Our souls will never die

When Jesus comes to claim us

Across the eastern sky.
