THE GOLDEN YEARS
people work all their lives
They look forward to retirement years
This is the time to smile and be happy
Itís time to set aside all fears.
There is so much to be thankful for
Just open your eyes and see
ThereĎs wind and the air that you breath
The two things you cannot see.
To love one another is what we should do
And understand how others feel
People in this world just come and go
Life goes round like a wheel
So here comes those wonderful golden years
Itís time to enjoy each lasting day
Get along with others, speak well of them
Take care of the words you say
Try to remember that if you have pains
That it doesnít mean you have to be one
If youíve been hurt then forgive and forget
You cannot change whatís already been done.
If anger jumps in and takes over
Stop for a moment and pray
Ask God to take this moment
And give you the right words to say.
Life is what you make it
So spend it laughing, smile at the end of each day
Donít get angry or carry a grudge
Itíll only make your hair turn gray
Note from Rosie:
One thing I've noticed living here
at a senior citizens park. That is...The older one gets the more some act like
children. They get upset at the smallest little things. It gave me an
inspiration to write this poem.
