Getting along in years as in older
has become something we have earned
We are becoming more docile not bolder
This part of life Seniors have learned.
Because of experience lots of things we know
and others may never find
like hidden places to go
And how to be good neighbors and be kind.
At this age we have all been around the block
and we have been far and wide
Some no further than the dock
Others looking for a place to hide.
Some of us will live many years
Others not so long
The ones with many fears
may soon be gone.
