Wow,  our life has just begun

It may seem late on the calendar

O, but to much chatter and banter

The clock still ticks and the sun still spins

The world goes round and we  begin

A new endeavor, another round of try

A grey hair, a weak grin,  skin so dry,

Wow, our life has just begun

Just waiting for the setting sun.

Susi Pentico

Reach for the stars
Dangle thoughts of Mars,

Play for the moon
It shall soon be noon,

Look to each day with positive thoughts
Let not walk in dire, sad lots

Reach to each other for support and for care
For soon, our time will have shown grey hair

Hug your children and your friends
Go out of your way and make new ones

Life is to short to set and moan,
Get up and give a loud groan

Fight to live and to love and to care
For soon our time will be there
