Why does the presence of old age
Mean we can't find the place on a page,
Don't have enough sense to come out of the rain,
Or be alert enough to overcome the presence of pain?
Can't still carry on intelligent conversations with friends!
Since we are still active, we can enjoy and attend
Programs that are interesting,
keeping us healthy in body and mind;
Surely all of our stories of our pasts
Are at least interesting enough to last
Through making all of us able
To join the conversation around the table!
