Grace in Grey

The crinkling around the eyes

Grey hair

Are witness to many a laughter

In good times and bad.

The roughened skin and callous

Are testament to a life

Well earned and well served.

 

The lines around the mouth

Show the resiliency of spirit

Sailing through tough times.

 

The deep brows on the forehead

Hide between them

Many a miraculous stories of love.

 

Creaks of the knees

Tell an interesting story

Of a veteran with many battles behind.

 

The salt and pepper hair

Is grace personified

And wisdom abound.

 

The body ages with grace

The soul is always twinkling

With laughter and stories.

Accept the process of growing old

To make peace with life.
