The Older I Get...

The Older I Get…


It seems like the older I am,

with each passing day.

There’s someone that I know

who “passes away.”


I remember as a child, 40 seemed to be “old.”

Now, it seems quite young. 

As I’ve been told.


This life that I have is wonderful and God given.

He wants to be with me

each day that I’m livin.


The older I am, the more that I began to see.

I need much more of God, and a lot less of me.


Whatever path in life that I might choose.

Without God in control.  I’m going to lose!


He’s the one that I need to take control.

His word brings nourishment to my soul!


His word and commandments

 need to be obeyed.

There’s nothing for HIS LOVE

I would ever trade!


I thank you my lord for the life I have received.

An eternal life with you,

I want to achieve!


The older I am…The closer I get

to my mansion above

God has blessed me and

given me his eternal love!


One more day with Jesus

is sweeter than before!

No matter my age.  I’ll always

need him MORE!


He is and will always be with me

till the end of time.

I’m so glad that I am his.  And he is MINE!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
