Growing Older

Poem By Robert H. Saehloff

Some folks say it is a blessing,
Others say it is a distressing,
Some folks enjoy the advancing years-
While to others it brings tears,

Health and wealth seem to regulate--
Feelings of each passing date...
As do family and friends who help the cause--
Or add to annoying flaws.

If growing older is to be sublime--
You must consider the passing time,
Treat it as you would a gift to you--
And as a guiding light in all you do.

Golden memories that fill each year's page--
Greatly enhance life's advancing age,
Your life is yours to regulate--
So fill it with pleasures you appreciate.

You surely can live and enjoy your age--
If you carefully plan each passing stage,
Bank each day in time's treasure chest-
And you'll find growing older life is best.

Gotta Story?

You betcha got a story--
It's your life in all its glory,
From the first hello, to the last goodbye-
Recorded is each low and high.

Daily Decisions

Everyday, no matter what you do--
Will be the result of decisions made by you,
Like, what time you get up in the morning or go to bed at night-
Plus, whether you travel to the left or turn to the right,
