This poem is an attempt at a wee bit of Irish humor.
I was about four when this picture was taken.

I turned 75 last week,
and getting to that age
has been quite A feat!

I've walked through days
of misery and pain.
Loved and laughed in life's
sweet refrains.

Now my hair is as white as snow.
My steps are slow every where I go.
I'm hard of hearing at selective times
and have trouble counting a bunch of dimes.

Where did all those golden years go?
I have not found one person who really knows.

It's really hard to be this age ,
and I don't like it one darn itsy bit.

Onward I go in my quest to attain, writer's stardom
and a small amount of poetic fame!

It is God's blessing that's keeping you!
He loves you and He wants you continue writing poem,
even such as this one!
Thanks for sharing, MaryGrace!

You are doing quite well it seems to me. Writing about it sure helps. And, if you're lucky, you'll hit a chord like some other great writers, and strike it famous and any age.

Just keep writing as though it was the last day of your life.

Happy Birthday!
I think that alchemy is the root of our Golden Years aches, pains wrinkles and hair color. Someone tried to change lead into gold...failed...and painted gold!
Count dimes? I can't even see them! :)

Ahahaha.. I thoroughly enjoyed your poem.. Not because i see myself at same age, but because i see everyone at that stage.. Busy with their lives either living em or just going through the motions.. Everyone's gonna ask, hey where'd the time go?
