Signs of Age

You say you’re looking older.
But where you see wrinkles,
I see good times passed.
Where you see skin
Worn and chapped,
I see hard work and good fun.
Where you see grey hair,
I see wisdom.
And where you feel aches and pains,
I feel love, for all that you’ve done.
Rest your aching feet,
And let me look after you
A little bit,
Whilst we reminisce,
And plan good times
Not yet had.
