I love this poem. As a woman over 55 I can truly relate to this meassage!

I do think the repetition of "In those twilight years" is too often. It's a little too distracting and interrupts the though and rhythm of the poem. Perhaps repeating it after every two stanzas instead of every one, would help.

One thing that encourages me is that Caleb was in his 80's when God used him in battle to fight the Canaanites and secure the promised land. We may be in the twilight years, but God's not done with us yet! Keep on writing and encouraging. You did a great job!
