Golden Years


Golden Years

Oh, what a delight it is

To be older and happy

The cares of the world

Just keep rolling off your back


You have achieved the golden years.

Gone are the many skirmishes

Some come but they disappear

But these problems have been lessons.


Some lessons were hard to learn.

Yet, you persevered with life’s trials.

So, now you have encountered a happy path.

This is through the many moral commitments.


Now, young people look up to you.

Your hair is gray with a twinkle in your eyes.

Many wrinkles decorate your face.

It is this new reality that shaped your life.


Your love has rebounded with tranquility.

Peace of mind governs your life.

Wise words gush forth like a fountain.

Still waters run deep with a new found joy.
