Growing Older Together

Growing Old Together

Oh yes we are growing older together.
I would want it with none other!

Spring showers, now summer days, oh how swiftly,
Fall’s fleeting; winter’s sleeting, oh how quickly.

From dawn to dusk – week to month.
Year by year…time so dear!

Oh yes we are growing older together.
I would want it with none other!

Yes rose petals are fading, winter’s invading.
Ice winds are blowing, all life is ebbing.
Crowns are graying…yes life’s decaying.

I know you feel the threatening days	
            But my Dorella I am with you…	
And hand in hand we will face the winter to! 

Poem inspired by mountains and foothills in Glassy Mountain, SC 1990

    I'm glad to see you sneaked another one in. Don't think I have seen Bald Top to know it, but I drove from Rosman south about 30 miles. I hear what you are saying here. Just remember you still have an older Bro., for the time being anyway. Love Bunky
