Beautiful Old Age

It ought to be lovely to be old to be full of the peace that comes of experience and wrinkled ripe fulfilment.

The wrinkled smile of completeness that follows a life lived undaunted and unsoured with accepted lies they would ripen like apples, and be scented like pippins in their old age.

Gentle, old people should be, like apples when one is tired of love.

Fragrant like yellowing leaves, and dim with the soft stillness and satisfaction of autumn.

And a girl should say: It must be wonderful to live and grow old.

Look at my mother, how rich and still she is!

– And a young man should think: By Jove, my father has faced all weathers, but it’s been a life! ~

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)

Beautifully written! Another great thing about living to be an older age is that you find confidence you never had when you were young. You’re comfortable in your own skin and you’re not trying to impress others. That’s freedom!

Thank you for sharing!!… there is no such thing as growing old if your young at heart!… 🙂

Until we meet again..
May your day be touched
by a bit of Irish luck,
Brightened by a song
in your heart,
And warmed by the smiles
of people you love.
(Irish Saying)
