Aging Grace

When I am 82 and silver-grey
And smiling wrinkles fill my face
I know I will still be beautiful
Because I have seen my grandmother’s grace

When the outer loveliness fades
The inner radiance will shine
From deep within my heart space
Where love, joy and kindness align

My laughter may be softer
But it will still playfully ring
My voice may start to falter
But I will still joyfully sing

Though my sight may start to fail
My eyes will still sparkle green-grey-blue
Though memories may begin to slip
My heart’s love will yet continue

Forty year’s from now I will smile
As I face my life’s end
Knowing I will have given
All that I am, or have ever been

To Love
