I Love Being Old

I love my being old

with life yet to unfold

and stories still untold.

I do not mourn my youth.

Gone are its fit-in follies,

its struggles and its troubles.

I smile and bless it all,

each year a gift to me.

It’s great now being old-

I wear my body now

a different shape and size,

battle-scarred with age-

a treasure chest to hold

the gifts I have within.

I’ve lived so many lives

in every shape and size.

I’ve often died in youth.

Now I love being old

with life yet to unfold

and stories still untold.
