Ya' know that old trees just grow stronger

And old rivers grow wilder ev'ry day

Old people just grow lonesome  -- waiting for someone to say,                                                                                                                                          "Hello in there,       hello"




I remember when old meant 25

old enough to drive,  old enough to have kids


I know for some people old means  45

too old to have fun, long past interesting


I have friends who worry about it

saying they don't want to grow old

as if it were an illness that be prevented


I remember when old meant people who walked slow

someone who talks about the past all the time yet

recall nothing 


                                                                                                                                                       I should write a note to myself 








Hello in there
