PSALM OF GROWING OLD

 

  • I love to reminisce of olden days:
      memories of long ago are not my problem.
     
  • It’s not so bad a deal, a poor memory:
      we stand a better chance of being creative.
     
  • God, you know me well, I’m getting older:
      one day I shall be old, if I survive.
     
  • Great to be more confident, to say what I like:
      but not to get too talkative, ever boring;
     
  • I do want to have some friends towards the end:
      give me grace to listen to younger people.
     
  • It happens to human beings growing old:
      but the option of growing up is ours to choose.
