When one gets old and not so cute
And finds it harder to re-boot
There's more to life than meets the eye
Like simple things that make you high
Becoming friends with children grown
And long-time friends that you have known
And grandkids are a special treat
Because, of course, they're very sweet
You get to love on them alot
But cumbersome to you they're not
There's freedom now to come and go
To travel, shop and just let go
And aging makes you very wise
To see with retrospective eyes
And even better than all this
Is hope of our eternal bliss
