Through the ages

 Gray hairs embrace wrinkles in your face
       Father time has given you grace
        Slowly the mind starts to fade
        Glasses are custom made
               As your vision dims
               Aches in your limbs
                     Teeth in  jar
                            Too far
                              Gone
