Someone once said
Old is
When you canít find your glasses
When you receive your invitation to join AARP
When you cash your first Social Security check
When you kiss your first grandchild
When you apply for Medicare
When you need a knee replacement
When you forget how old you are
When your family wonít let you renew your driverís license
When youíve had more colonoscopies than you can count
When your teeth fall out

But
I say
Old is
When I no longer find beauty in Godís creation
I forget to say thank you
Bitterness consumes me
Children bother me
People annoy me
Animals shun me
Morning, noon, and night I complain
I think I am always right
I no longer pray
read my Bible
or care
about
You

Dear Lord,
Before I am old,
Spare my friends
My family
My children
Call me home
So I may
Not
Shame
You

Help me
To stay young
With
Bonds that never break
Belly ache laughter
Compassion like Jesus
Creativity
Hope that endures
Charity
Forgiveness times seventy
Sacrifice beyond measure
Love for You
As ageless as
Mother Time
