When I Am Old

Posted on Updated on


bird-feeding

 

When I grow old I shall wear golden clips

in my silver hair and soft blue comfort clothes.

I will spend my social security checks on good books,

junk food, and special feed for my beloved animals.

I will sit in the evenings in my living room and

watch crazy people on TV and listen

to my Dogs snore.

I will rise before dawn when everything’s asleep

and take my strong coffee and my dogs outside to

watch the birds and squirrels wake up.

I will wear my rainbow colored socks and my

soft old house shoes as I feed them all

until their bellies hang.

When people come to visit I will  smile and nod as

I show them my special friends that await my

first movement every morning with eyes full of love.

 

I know I am getting older but I am not afraid for

they will love me and keep me smiling.

They are a part of me and they understand

what words can not say

They ask for nothing in return except

love and food

They appreciate my presence in their lives

When I am old they will be pearls

upon my neck
