Old Lady Poem

Sometimes I wish that
The elevator had chairs
And that lobby, seats.

I could sit, relax
While riding it up or down
But I’d have to rise.

Is that lazyness?
There are only just four stops.
Well - thinking only.  

My eighty-seventh
A birthday I’ve dreaded so,
But now isn’t bad.  

I praise God for years
He’s guided - carried me through.
He’ll do that for you -
IF  you give your heart to Him.
