Book Details


Poems about Aging>

When you lose your hair and your hearing and your vision, it’s hard to find any humor in these all too human conditions. These poems were written from experience and, believe me, if you can laugh about aging body parts, you can handle the other problems life hands you. So read, enjoy and laugh!

 

Book Excerpt

WHIZZING BY



Now that we are growing old


And see life whizzing by


We wish that we could slow it down


Gain time before we die





Do all the things we didn’t do


Take trips we didn’t take


Squeeze in a lot of living


Before it gets too late





To move and think the way we’d like


With bodies much less agile


As each day comes we’re more aware


That we’ve grown much more fragile





But even though we feel our age


And think that life's a pox


Remember the alternative –


We could be in a box!
