A Senior Citizens Lament

Getting old is not so bad
so I tell myself each day.
I'm just glad I got here.
I'm thankful for each day.

Old age has it's moments'
some are good, some annoy
All those senior discounts
are some things I enjoy.

Old age isn't boring,
something new hurts each day
telling me I'm still alive,
a good thing you might say.

Those books on the bottom shelf
I'll never get to read
I just can't get down there.
Old age is tough indeed.

There are other drawbacks.
Some to painful to write down.
Some will surely make you smile
while some will cause a frown.

Getting old is not so bad
with all the aches and pain.
I'm among the lucky
that I can still complain.
