Old Age??

My age is getting up there middle age is knocking on my door They say I shouldn't worry... I'm only thirty four. I'm noticing the wrinkles. I sense that double chin is creeping right up on me. Fight gravity?? I can't win! I use to feel so youthful. I thought I'd never age. Back then I planted flowers. Today I'm growing sage. Sometimes I forget my own age. It's not that I contrive. Like when I wrote my bio here I SAID I'M THIRTY FIVE!! Is that a sign of old-age?
