I've reached the age where the happy hour is a nap.


 

I am coming up on that magic year sixty-five

I wake up each morning just feeling glad to be alive

At my age I can’t stand the heat and hate the cold

Seeing a pretty young girl in a bikini just makes me feel old

Of course it isn’t as bad as I may make it seem

I now have the time during the day to simply daydream

Any passion I may have simply takes too much energy

The closest I get to making love is light kiss between me and she

But feeling sorry for myself fills no purpose so I won’t sit and weep

I could tell you more but I just want to take a nap. 

A man my age needs his sleep 

Lews WEBPAGE

good one Lew, and don't feel rained on, I'm the big 60 still celebrating the big 50, every week my wife and I go dancing and having as much fun as we can, cause as you say the old love flame just don't burn as well as it use to. I don't wait for birthdays anymore, everyday I can feel good is a birthday, the birth of my older body being able to move around positively. At times my legs go out on me because of poor circulation but they never stay gone. I use the good features I've got left, like knowing how to smile and laugh,even when I don't feel like it. It don't take many muscles to treat my wife and others kind, I love just simply being nice to people, it makes me feel better. Being mean and hateful is a waste of good energy, which we don't have much of left, hey I just woke up but after I get to work it will be nap time, take care of that positive tude
