A Senior’s Poem

As I grew older, I moved a bit slower

So I stepped aside and let the young ones take over

But some of God’s work was left undone.

I decided the young folks shouldn’t have all the fun

So I skedaddled on over to show em how it’s done.

As I grew older I could hardly see

So I let others come and read

But then it occurred to me 

That I didn’t need to read

To tell others what I believe.

As I grew older I could barely hear

So others began to share and teach

But then I remembered my hearing aid

Which helped me to others reach

Even if I must go and preach.

I’m not too old to serve my Lord

My life has purpose I can afford

To live and tell others of Christ’s rewards

How we all can be headed Heavenward.

Until next time,
