Things a Fading Old Lady Likes To Hear
I'm a fading old lady, and there are some things I like to hear.
Like when I tell you that with time you've got nothing to fear.
As time passes, a revelation is exposed in your beautiful eyes.
Every kind, sweet, comment from you, is a delightful surprise.
You see beauty in me, I see that my youth and looks are gone.
Your beauty enchants me, but to your soul I'm deeply drawn.
You are aging, being created by time into a divine work of art.
You see me not through your eyes, but from your loving heart.
An aging old lady needs a kind, wonderful friend just like you.
I see your gentle eyes are touched by softness, kissed by dew.
Your soul uses time to allow the inner light to shine out bright.
Your gentle, kind remarks, help to ease my growing old fright.
When Life Gets You Down
Life is stressful and can sometimes pull me down.
Where ever I look, the rainbow has turned brown.
My nerves are tangled, my brains are deep fried.
I can taste the salt, from the tears that I've cried.
When will this gloom and this darkness go away?
I have lost my peace, my heart is filled with dismay.
Deep in my despair, searching for a way to ascend.
I start to think about you, my true, and loyal friend.
I'm starting to feel better, I'm even wearing a smile.
Now once again, living my life seems worthwhile.
Friendship is for the bad times as well as the good.
Within the realm of our friendship, that's understood.
