I know that age
Does not come year on year -
But from Life and Love,
Aches and tears.

Age comes in waves
In seasons of the heart -
Age before beauty
Is just Death having a laugh.

September shadows
After autumn blues -
I know that age
Is kind to few.

Check the mirror,
See if you can
Catch the moment
Life lets go of your hand.

And don't forget to
Check your dreams
For that sepia glow and
Pastel colour schemes -

I know that age
Does not come suddenly
But that it does come
Is a certainty.

Acceptance and peace
And a willingness to go -
Do not let the final word be
