Having just had another birthday, this poem about age caught my attention and I thought I would share it.....
Age is a quality of the mind.
If you have left your dreams behind,
If hope is cold,
If you no longer look ahead,
If your ambitions' fires are dead~
Then you are old.
But if from life you take the best,
And if in life you keep the jest,
If love you hold;
No matter how the years go by,
No matter how the birthdays fly~
You are not old.
