JUST A THOUGHT
Let us not dread old age or fading charms.
Sail with the tide that leads us to the calms.
Passing youth’s storms, illusions and temptations,
Each season brings along its compensations.
Be glad to watch as well as taking part,
Leaving the play to those younger heart.
Glad to applaud, advise and yet stand back,
While grace makes up for other things you lack.
