I Don't Mind


I Don’t Mind

By

Jerry Wayne Humphrey

 

 

I don’t mind having some gray in my hair

I am just thankful that at my age it is still there

 

I don’t mind having to adhere to a slower pace

I find that I enjoy the scenery instead of the race

 

I don’t even mind putting on my glasses to read

I carry them to use whenever there is a need

 

I don’t mind getting a discount at a store

I might shop longer and buy even more

 

I don’t mind the little aches and pains when I drive

They just remind me that I am still here and alive

 

I don’t mind being called sir or mister anymore

That doesn't make me feel bad or sore

 

I don’t mind people opening a door for me

If we gave more respect a nicer world it would be

 

I don’t mind stopping to take a nap in the afternoon

I know if they need me they will wake me soon

 

I don’t mind the volume being turned up a bit

It's more enjoyable when you can clearly hear it

 

I don’t mind taking time to enjoy things more

I get the chance to see things I never saw before

 

I don’t mind getting older it's not something I dread
I'll do my best to enjoy it now before I am dead
