The Generation of Old


What do you mean you’re too old

pined the 75 yer young mother of 3

you kids have been such a blessing to me.


I’m too old sighed the son

only 52 years strong

his daughter turned and looked at him

and shook her head with a whim.


Now 30 years of age was she

shaking her head wondering, how could this be

that she was so old

now married with twins

trying to recall days in college

when she was young and so slim

but she smiled with great joy

at the love which she saw

in the eyes of her boys

one day to be tall

who will look down upon her and say

you’re not so old after all.
