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.
