AS YOU GROW A LITTLE OLDER

As you grow a little older…oh the wonders you behold…

You find you can enjoy the new things…but you’re still drawn back to the old.

 

Your old jeans are most comfortable…you’ve worn them for so long.

You find enjoyment in an old book…you love to sing old songs.

 

As you grow a little older…the more your life extends

you find comfort and contentment…in the bosom of old friends.

 

Old friends bring with them old memories…old memories that interplay

Old memories that, when reawakened…still take your breath away.

 

You relive the joys you shared together…You relive the sorrows and the fears.

You share some of that old laughter…and replicate old tears…

 

As you grow a little older…you begin to comprehend

one way to feel young again…is spending time amidst old friends.

 

Yes, as you grow a little older…you find you wake up gratified…

 

knowing even when you’re not together…old friends are by your side.
