This was meant to be light-hearted. Maybe even comical? I'll let you decide.


Woke up this morning feeling dazed
Oh what a way to start your days
These tired old bones move but with much dread
Slowly and painfully I crawl out of bed
I look out the window at the morning sun
I look in the mirror at what the years have done
My skin is wrinkled, I have thin gray hair
I look at what time has done with feelings of despair
These aching joints of mine protest as I stumble down the stair
I tell you, friend getting old is really hard to bear
My sex drive has vanished and my passions are spent
I’ve done lost my marbles and know not where they went
These old bones are weary and my muscles are tired
I almost went to work today but then remembered I’m retired
I drop into bed at night and close these tired old eyes
Tomorrow when I awake I will thank God for still another sunrise

I guess it is comical Lew, but unfortunately it is reality also! LOL
Best regards

The day your bio picture looks like this little old gent,we'll all feel sorry for you. Oh, the joys of growing old-you've expressed them well and though they make us laugh, there's that uneasy feeling creeping through the old bones as I read this. Good job!

good one Lew and I relate, I think we both need prayers, however we both better laugh at this one because in reality, well anyway like I said before we get to ratting ourselves out during this verse, cheers

Lew, You know me so well, but do you have to tell everybody? Especially that crack about my sex drive!!!! Dick

You know what "they" say, Lew; as long as there's fire in the hearth... ...I like to add, there's fire in the heart. Love, peace, and blessings,
