As we grow older

Over Fifty!

by Harry Smith

As age becomes our lives, we'll say goodbye to our youth.
We'll stop living in a dream world and start realizing the truth.

Good memories will be our focus, bad memories will be the past.
The fear of dying that once lingered, today the fear won't last.

You'll learn to accept death, just like you have learned to survive.
You'll understand that it is because of grace, that you are still alive.

Maturity will become your very best friend, and it will really show.
You will unselfishly learn to give to others, allowing them to grow.

Money will still be necessary, but what it means to you will change.
All of your priorities, and the way that you live, you will rearrange.

Age is just a number, at least that is what people sometimes say.
If we've matured through the years, age will be our lives one day.

Growing older should make us wiser.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
