Growing Okd

Growing old
like fine wine
vintage a treasure

Growing old
coming to wisdom
resource of experience

Growing old
like a well worked motor
slowing down

Growing old
ahead a shorter path
behind miles and miles

Growing old
forward with grace
looking back with a smile

Growing old
inevitable journey's end
trekking to the last step

Growing old
Growing old



Growing Old (c)2001 Gillena Cox
