        IT ISN’T EASY      

 

It isn’t easy growing old.                                               

I think most seniors will agree,                                               

That as they face a new threshold,                      

The inclination is to flee.

                                 

Because my feelings trouble me,     

It isn’t easy growing old …

I’ll do it with much dignity,

And I will treat those years like gold.

 

So far my journey is untold,                

But I will live those years to be.           

It isn’t easy growing old,         

With this new road a mystery.

 

Our lives are like a recipe,

With our deeds and facts to mold,                   

And though we’re part of history,

It isn’t easy growing old.
