Growing Older

 

I know I getting older,

I know I’m not a kid,

But please somebody tell me,

Where it’s all been hid?

 

My sights not 20/20,

My eyes are growing dim,

I saw a pretty lady once,

But it seems Her is a Him?

 

My abs have gone on Walk-About.

I think my hair has too.

I’d like to hope they will return,

But I really have no clue.

 

Twenty years has snuck away.

And I am wondering why.

Have I really just forgotten?

It makes me want to cry.

 

Really, I was always there,

I truly had a blast.

If memories are all that I have left,

At least it was my past.

 

Tales are told of a misspent youth

I cannot say there’re true

But when I’m old and cranky

Perhaps I’ll do it too!

    If you ever get old and cranky and start sharing stories about your misspent youth, I want to hear every word. What a fabulous tale that would be!
