Losing my long hair and it just isn't fair
collecting more wrinkles every day
I remember a time when I just wouldn't have cared
when having all that fun was okay

but now that I'm older and the world a lot colder
I'm paying attention to more of the simple things
it's not like before, I was faster and much bolder
and all I wanted was to catch the brass rings

they say with age comes wisdom, the ability to see things through
and that men age more gracefully than most women, so they say
but I still think your sexy, love the little things you do
and I thank God they day you came my way

Thank you Michele, I don't mind being older until my kids remind me that I am, and I have seen some amazing things in my lifetime, and I always remind them that I can do more things in a day than they can and still be awake after ten pm.

This is great--and do I ever know that feelin'!!! I like my new 'silver' hair color--this is the first time I haven't wanted to change it -- too bad the way the world perceives a graying head--especially when it comes to employability! Who cares--I'm getting the poems re-typed and filed and going to get 'the book' done--finally!

I like this for it's truths and it's wisdom. We were "wild childs" in our younger days, but now that age caught up to us, we see the deeper things. Spoken from a man that has realized his place in life now.

You always do that to, it was all written by me, and I am all male...I think it's really cool that you feel that though, cause women are so much more honest and open than men can ever be...I think anyway...I think it's just me cause I'm cinfused too...

just something that came my way this morning
A Word from the Writer
I know this is silly, but we can't pick and choose what we want to write and not write when it comes to us, right? I feel that if I don't then it will stop altogether, does that make sense?
