Old And Crinkly



Why do we have to get old and crinkly When we reach a certain age Why can't we stay all smooth and cuddly Like we were when we were babes! Some people call me a crinkly old man But inside I'm still cuddly as ever Don't miss a trick, still go for my walks Out there in all kinds of weather As jovial as ever, this happy old man Wants nothing more than sweet love Bonding with all his very close friends Till the sun don't shine up above So those of you who are reaching old age My advice is just let it all flow Crinkles add character heard someone say But inside the love still glows © Jack Ellison 2013

    It doesn't matter how old or young you are. How many wrinkles or pimples. Its how we live our lives and treat others that matter. Nice write.

    Yes, definitely. The last stanza says it all. At the end of the day, at the end of our time, our love inside will still glow.
