    Humorous Poem About Change

    in Aging Poems

    A little old lady, I do not mind being.
    What I find I don't like are the changes I'm seeing.
    My marbles are still rolling in the right direction.
    I enjoy this old world, though it has imperfections.

    Just a word or a touch,

    Keeping A Cheerful Attitude In Public

    in Poems about Life Struggles

    We are all a part of the scenery, you know,
    No matter where you may live.
    There's someone who will feel your presence,
    Absorb the attitude that you might give.

    Using Your Words Carefully Around Children

    in Children Poems

    A gardener, if he's very wise,
    When it is planting season,
    Will always use the best of seeds.
    It only stands to reason.

    Discussion With God About How To Live

    in Faith Poems

    Just between you and me, Lord, I'd like to say
    It's not always easy to follow Your way.

    To create a good life, there is no better tool.

Dear Pat, I just read your poem today and know just how you feel. I can only thank my genes for the fact I look many years younger. I wash my face once a week and slap some Lubriderm on it. One of my poems is, "We are all part of the scenery," so I try. I'm 98 and fortunate that I can still eat, sleep, walk and talk, and make crossword puzzles. Keep on keeping on, even one of your smiles might make a difference. Regards, Alora Knight

Hi Marsha,
I have a lot of things to be thankful for, but having you for my daughter tops them all. Love, Mama

I was very touched by this poem because it reflects how I feel. I'm 97 and have witnessed so much. I believe we can brighten the day, no matter what the circumstances are. My greatest treasure is the file of letters I have received from all over the world (thanks to Family Friends Poems) that let me know that people have been amused, comforted, or inspired by what I wrote.
