Oh So Old

(tune of Jingle Bells)

Getting old
Feeling old
Hair is going grey
I’m so old
So I’ve been told
It’s what my kids all say


Looking old
Acting old
Why is it this way?
I’m so old 
So I was told
By my teen today

    Sometimes others are the mirrors no better than the glass, for in only seeing the exterior, the best beyond them pass. It's not what they see, its how you make them feel ... youth is a moment in the heart, forever strong and real. Go jingle that feeling away. One Love
