The savings for the old age.

Your son will rob you
If you over live.
Your son will kill you
If don’t part with.
Someone will do it
In case you have no sons.
Savings made for the old age
Is deterrent at the old age.

Old Age

And I will away
Your highness, Im so high I cannot walk
And I will away
You cripple, you take away my time my peace
My empathy
No babies sleep on atrophy
Your unborn love and fetal dress
Hard bitter candy legless caress
What was she for halloween?
The ugliest girl youve ever seen
Someday she will die alone
What was she for valentines
An old forgotten cumbucine
Someday she will die for no one
She seems to me to know
All that glitters is sour
All the lies in her place - jesus saves
Old age - old age
Old age
Its okay to kill your idols
Just pretend you have no rivals
We all know that she is friendless
Spits at mirrors, its not an issue
Just remove the hateful tissue
We all know her rage is endless
She seems to me to know
All that glitters is sour
All the lies in her place - jesus saves
Old age - old age
Old age
And then she begs me, she says pretty please
Ill make her pure again, Ill make her clean
No one knows shes hestor pryne
Someone please tell ann boelyn
Chokers are back in again
Someday she wont have to fake it
Living, well, itself seems sacred
Someday she will just refuse
She seems to me to know
All that glitters is sour
All the lies in her place - jesus saves
Old age - old age
Old age
Jesus saves
Old age
Rest in peace and me in pieces
Im sorry - so sorry

Because Of My Old Age

The object of my confidence is in your love so,
Do not cast me off because of my old age;
For i will love you as long as the sun the moon endures!

Old Age

OLD age is courteous--no one more:
For time after time he knocks at the door,
But nobody says, "Walk in, sir, pray!"
Yet turns he not from the door away,
But lifts the latch, and enters with speed.
And then they cry "A cool one, indeed!"

Before Old Age

Young beauty forces love, and that’s a rape,
there’s far more willingness in middle-age
when lovers do not look for an escape,
together trapped before old age can rage.

It was Donne, in the elegy 'The Autumnal, ' who observed that 'Young Beauties force our love, and that's a Rape.'

In Old Age/ A Sudden Afternoon Happiness

IN OLD AGE/ A SUDDEN AFTERNOON HAPPINESS

In old age
A sudden afternoon happiness
No one needs me to be anywhere-
There is nothing to be guilty about
For not doing anything.

In old age
I can pretend to be retired
To have done
What I can do
To rest and enjoy.

Yet as I write this down
I feel without writing it
The whole of this day
Wasted.

The Aching of Old Age

THE ACHING OF OLD AGE

The aching of old age
Knows it will not go away
It is part of the life now
Aching is like breathing always here
Whether attended to or not
The aching of old age
Will not go away
It will accompany one all the way to the grave
Perhaps this is what it is ultimately for
To teach us that which we dreaded all these years
Has its most real meaning only in
Ending the aching forever.

Old Age

It may be, when this city of the nine gates
Is broken down by ruinous old age,
And no one upon any pilgrimage
Comes knocking, no one for an audience waits,
And no bright foraging troop of bandit moods
Rides out on the brave folly of any guest,
But weariness, the restless shadow of rest,
Hoveringly upon the city broods;
It may be, then, that those remembering
And sleepless watchers on the crumbling towers
Shall lose the count of the disastrous hours
Which God may have grown tired of reckoning.

In My Old Age A Great Happiness

IN MY OLD AGE A GREAT HAPPINESS

In my Old Age
A great Happiness
Comes over me.
Why?
I cannot exactly say
I walk I sing
Music and Poetry in me.

The Spring
The Light the Flowers
Some Great Peace
Of all the years I have been
My children
My step-grandchildren
So much I love
Eretz Yisrael.

How happy the light
Of this green day
All the while
Forgetting
The fears of what might be
The uncertainy of what is
The pains of what will be-

A great Happiness
A great Happiness
Thank G-d I have here now still
Thank God for so much goodness in my life.

Old Age

I never knew till I reached my old age

that so much joy and happiness were in store for me

N ow I know that I used to carry useless boulders

on my shoulders and mistook them for priceless treasure

On the road the dacoits robbed me of most of my belongings

Thanks to the capitalist world that breeds inequality

Thanks to Fortune that is the gigolo of the rich and powerful

Now the


load of ego and pride have alighted from my head

Light and happy now I cand bend my head before everyone

Now I can kneel before everything with awe and reverence

The Song One Sings In Old Age

The song one sings in old age
Is a quieter song-
It has more sadness in it,
And more remembrance.

It knows the greatest lyric of love
Will never be in it again.
The Ecstasy of he greatest passion is beyond it-

The song one sings in old age
Has a kind of Tenderness and Kindness in it
It loves nothing more than small and gentle dreams;
And grandchildren.

It goes along consoled
At hearing itself
And yet somehow different and lost-

For the song of old age
Has heard many songs
Which will be sung no more-

And in listening feels
It soon will be singing
Its last and saddest song.

I Have Become Lazy In My Old Age

I HAVE BECOME LAZY IN MY OLD AGE


I have become lazy in my old age
I find it hard
To ‘screw my courage to the sticking place’-
I want to wander and dream-

It somehow seems less important
To do, to make, to achieve
To get somewhere
To make my name great-

Vanity of vanities I tell myself
It will all be vanity –

And yet my conscience says:
If God has given me more time than most
What right have I to waste it?
And what too do I give
To the work of the years
Half- done-
Needing correction.

‘Focus make the good fight’ My Conscience says-

But I escape and dream another small poem-

Who Can Bear in Old Age The Despair of Friends Sick and Lost?

Who can bear in old age the despair of friends sick and lost?
The endless incapacities and infirmities
That deprive us of each other as we wholly are?
Who can bear in old age the diminishing of worlds we knew
And the loss of hopes we lifetime long carried?
Who can bear in old age all these maladies of our own petty meaninglessness?

Only those who can see in the young
Something of themselves or of their own -
Only those who can find in the new generations
Dream and hope for what is yet to come-
Oh old old souls
Speak of your children and grandchildren shamelessly,
They are the light of the world.

Ch 06 On Weakness And Old Age Story 04

One day, in the pride of youth, I had travelled hard and arrived perfectly exhausted in the evening at the foot of an acclivity. A weak old man, who had likewise been following the caravan, came and asked me why I was sleeping, this not being the place for it. I replied: ‘How am I to travel, having lost the use of my feet?’ He said: ‘Hast thou not heard that it is better to walk gently and to halt now and then than to run and to become exhausted?’

O thou who desirest to reach the station
Take my advice and learn patience.
An Arab horse gallops twice in a race.
A camel ambles gently night and day.

Sonnet: in Old Age

All life they slogged till crept on them old age!
Their children were the pupils of their eyes;
By habit still, to work they yet manage,
With spirit good, weary their body lies.

The toil they put is ‘yond an estimate;
Their loving service is just very great;
They wait for Time’s scythe to emancipate;
Disgruntled world, they can never satiate.

What a wretched world, this happens to be!
Unprepared even now, their senescence is;
Busy children care not for elderly;
But wise old-aged humans on earth’s a bliss!

’tis sad when strikes old-age the aged its gong!
The frail figures cannot withstand for long.

I Am In Old Age Too Happy To Be Sane

I am in old age too happy to be sane
I just love my life so much –

I don’t know why and yet I do-

I have managed to remain alive
For all these years
And still pretty healthy
And a family I love
Thank God –

And I live in Israel
And I am an American too
What a blessing
So many blessings-

How can I not be happy
And thankful to God for them?

I won’t speak of all the hard things and losses through the years
They will always be there-

But on the whole
Thinking about it all
I want to sing and dance and laugh and thank G-d
And bless all the family and friends
That have been so good to me in so many ways
Thank you all.

Sonnet: Old Age Will Subdue All

The day will come when you must hold a stick
As prop and stand or walk with its support;
This frame will age some day or become sick
Or bed-ridden ‘like old ship back to port’!

The day will come when you can’t raise your voice
Or sing aloud akin to days when young,
Nor eat variety foods as per your choice,
For feeble grows your stomach, cords and lung!

The day will come when you can’t even sin
By habit as you used to do in past;
With senescence, no one can ever win,
Or challenge it until you breathe your last!

When old-age seizes you so stealthily,
Surrender soul to God quite happily!

On The Edge Of My Old Age

ON THE EDGE OF MY OLD AGE


On the edge of my old age
A strange calm comes to me
I have done what I have done
Whatever it be.

On the edge of my old age
Anger is my soul
I have not climbed the mountain
And now I’m far too old.

On the edge of my old age
I still wait to see
What will become
Of all I dreamed.

On the edge of my old age
Joy in my life
I have written for years
And still love to write

On the edge of my old age
Still striving to be
I must strive with more courage
No matter what be

On the edge of my old age
The omnipresent fear
A pained burden forever
A mind unclear.

On the edge of my old age
Enjoying my little life
Praying for grandchildren
For my children and wife.

Old Age Doesn't Come Alone... Not At 53

Where does it come from old age
I took my family grandchildren included
To the beach today only to find out
That people who are unfit are excluded
Not to say I didn't try to reach the beach
'Come on Grandad! ' shouted my boys
But grandad was too ill for the beach to reach
So sat on an old wooden bench and viewed from afar
The shenannigans of my daughter playing in the surf
Made me so envious to be young again.
But I'm only fifty three with a heart of ninety
So thus it must remain until the hospital sort my problems
Without good odds I have been informed
My passing may be sooner rather than later
But I'd rather a day of running on the beach and my heart burst
Than to have to hear my grandchildren shout once again
'Come on grandad last one there is a rotten egg! '

Old Age Prayer

old age seems to be creeping up on me.
i stare at words that i can not see.
i have arthritis setting in
i'm feeling all the needles and pins.

my bones ache, my skin flakes
more pills i can't take
they say there are pills for all you feel
but with this i can not deal.

i felt a headache starting to rise
it felt like thunder and lightning
flashing thru my mind.
thunder and lightning of every kind.

then i was asked a simple question today.
at the end of the day, do i pray?

stunned! i did not know what to say
but the question stayed in my mind
for a very long time.

so that night i said a prayer
woke in the morning without a care.
it seems that prayer puts your body at ease.
and of that- i am pleased.

and now every night i say a prayer
for i know that GOD is near.
