Older's.....NOT Better......

Come closer, now, my love, and listen to me.
Some profound thoughts just RAN across my mind.
While they ARE plain....and TRUTHFUL...let me tell you,
It wasn't my intent to be unkind.
(Sit closer...as I tell you,
Rest your head on my shoulder......
Older's not better.....older's just.....older.)

I look into your eyes...and I can see there,
A SPARK of what remains from long ago.
But if I saw the FIRE.....that ONCE was present,
(Just what I'd need to do....I wouldn't know!)
(BE EASY THERE......dear,
That's my arthritic shoulder.
Older AIN'T better....older's just.....older!)

The way the years have flown....is getting faster.
The hourglass drops its load....in HALF THAT time.
'Most everything has changed....in its proportion;
(For NOW a dollar's only worth a dime.)
So....come closer...my dear,
DON'T YOU DROOL on my shoulder!
And DON'T fall asleep
'Cause olderzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz............
