I'm Not At All Old

I'm not at all old
I've just lived a long time
I put my aging on hold
And remain in youthful prime

It seems factual when I say it
I think I believe it's true
But will Father Time okay it
When about my need, he has no clue

So I must clue the old guy in
And insist that he agree
To allow me more time to begin
Recapturing my young espirit

Your as old or young at hart as old as your mind. May you out live Enoch , young , Stan.

Ken :)

like this one
humor and with a twinkle in the eye
but also with a quietly serious undertone
as I read it

anyway I like

I'm starting to believe this, must be getting old! I agree with your sentiments, I too am putting my aging on hold, nice one Stan as always, as Bob Dylan says "forever young."
