The Older I Get

The older I get
the more life means to me
the more I realize
how blessed I am
what used to be big things
become little things

my body has taught me
to slow down
age has a way of teaching us
things we never considered before

the older I get, I realize
I can no longer do
what I used to be able to do
health issues have to be dealt with

my body may be weaker
but my mind is still strong and sharp
I may not hear as well or see as well
and I may be dealing with chronic pain
but I’m still alive

I still have faith, hope
and the love of my wonderful wife
