Through the ages

 The time of youth will one day fade
Wrinkles then  come with gray hairs too
You now have a different point of view
As the stranger in the mirror looks back at you

When your tomorrows are less  than your yesterdays
And cherished memories slip away
It is then that  you realize
Just how much time flies

When those joints start to ache
And those teeth begin to shake
You'll be getting dentures soon
 From diminished vision you're not immune

Embrace your seniority, be proud and   bold
Don't throw in the cards yet, never fold
Half  of your  story has never been told
You're not done yet, you're just getting old
