Don't ever grow too old for birthdays
Fun-things that you used to do
Don't give up your dreams because you
Feel that they have not come true.
Don't forget the sound of laughter
Or the love in someone's eyes
Don't trade memories for pleasures
All that in a moment dies.
Don't give up your zest for living
Saying you are much too old
Is this what you feel or is it
Something that you have been told?
There's a valley deep within us
Where there is eternal Spring
Where there is no sound of sorrow
And the birds forever sing.
Though your gait is not as steady
Now as once it used to be
And your vision's clouding over
Things you used to clearly see.
Do not let the weight of decades
Turn you into bitter gall
For with age there comes a wisdom
That's a blessing to us all.
Hold your years up like a banner
Wave it brightly in the sun
When folks tell you life is over
Tell them it has just begun.
Loneliness can never touch you
If you don't allow it to
And in sharing love with others
. . . God will give it back to you.
