Time is like a thief
Stealing days away
Aging me so rapidly
Trying to make me pay.

Days becoming years
Aches and pains come on cue
Vision is now blurry
Good days are but a few.

Memories encased in cobwebs
Forever within my grasp
Looking into a mirror
Not able to recall my past.

Many lines and wrinkles
Now etched across my face
Showing me my life
That was lived with some grace.

Youth is gone forever
But still lingering within my heart
Time is now beckoning me
Old age is what it imparts.

Years and years of living
Many people I have met
Strolling in and out
Most I won't forget.

Lots of friends I have made
Throughout all these many years
God has truly blessed me
I hold them all so dear.

So now I'll start to savor
The coming of each new day
To try and live it fully
Until my next birthday.
