Old Age

Old age comes sooner than expected
to someone who is unprepared.
It's wise to think of old age
as traveling along 
your whole long life through.
It will catch up
and you must 
carry 
it.


Old age can bring good years if you have
taken care of your health and wealth.
It is the time you can stop
to enjoy good things
that surrounded you
when too busy 
to notice 
life is
fun.
