When the pain seems unbearable,
and there is no cure to make it ease.
When you ache deep inside your bones,
and there is no treatment to appease.
When you lift your arms above your head,
and a twinge runs down your spine.
When your hips hurt and throb all night,
and your best days make you whine.
When your knees can no longer bend,
and your feet are too sore to hold you up.
When your hands are too stiff to move,
and someone else has to lift your cup.
When sleep and rest does not come,
and you wake up in a deep thick fog.
When your only fun is on your computer,
and seeing who today you can blog.
When your body starts to go downhill,
and your sanity follows it along.
That is when you know you’re getting old,
and let’s face it - in my book that’s just plain wrong!

Always enjoy your poetry. God bless.

How true! Getting old isn't fun. Our bodies do protest.

Are you sure you have not been peeking at my life? HA! Ha! This is a good poem...I liked it very much. I can testify to these thoughts since I will be 82 yrs of age this Sept. My body frequently feels pain, but my spirit stays forever young. One day I'll shed this earthly coat and get a brand new one that will never grow old. Thank you for sharing this. GOD BLESS YOU
