We are getting older
Our hair has turned to grey
We walk a little slower
We age from day to day.

Our nails are somewhat brittle
Our eyesight, not so good
I ask you to repeat things
I don’t recall some things I should.

We bruise a little easier
Our balance is unsteady
It takes us longer to get dressed
A little longer…. to get ready.

Where did all the time go?
The years have passed us by
It’s been quite a journey
I never want to say, “goodbye”.

So many different ailments
Trips to and from the doctor
Hard to believe we made it
To the “Happy Ever After”.

We still hold hands and kiss good night
You mean the world to me
It’s been a good life all in all
I’m sure you would agree.
