Yes, older folks will like this wonderful poem. Actually, I think even younger ones might like this poem because one day they'll be older too. A fabulous poem - Walk With Me While I Age Sorry, but in case you're wondering who wrote it? I don't know who wrote it but that's not important. What is important is that it was by someone who understand how older folks feel. A beautiful poem about getting older. I hope this poem has the same effect on you as it did on me; then my posting it will have been worth the effort. Walk with me while I age. Well worth the read. Walk With Me While I Age Let's discuss it? Tell me if it resonates with you, especially those that are older? And remember young ones, one day you'll be older too?

I thought to post the link to the poem, I think it is this one that you are mentioning. I am getting older, this is how I feel some days, other days I still feel like I were in my 30's.

Glad you noticed that I didn't post the poem. I must be getting old and getting forgetful. Interesting that some enjoyed the poem.

So, if I can climb one flight of stairs without being out of breath then I'm still ok? So what is a flight of steps, about 20 steps?

Well, I read it and I like it a lot. I am just starting to understand that poem now at this point in my life. Though life is not fair, I guess it is just the normal progression of life.

@1hopefulman I hear that. My girlfriend, well, if I can even call her that anymore, her father is in a nursing home now and there are people there that have no one. It is sad.

The poem is beautifully written. It resonates with me, as I found I quickly age too. My husband just told me, one of our high school mates just passed away. Every relationship really means much more to me now.

@1hopefulman Yes, when we are aging, we need to be prepared that we will continue to lose friends, relatives or even our family members.... That's what my husband and I were talking. Well, it's sad, but that's part of life too.

I know! I don't think anyone wants to get old but it happens whether we want or don't want to. It is genetic because of Adam's disobedience and rebellion. In God's New Earth we will stay young forever. Let's not miss out!
