We


We may be older
We may be slower
But only because we have
Lived long.

We may be more sore
We may be more stiff
But only because we have
Lived fully.

We may be more deaf
We may be more blind
But only because we have
Lived aware.

We may be more reserved
We may be more discerning
But only because we have
Lived watchfully.

We may be more loving
We may be more forgiving
But only because we have
Lived with faults.

We may be wiser
We may be happier
But only because we have
Loved truly.

  1. Is that why my legs hurt sometimes? No, seriously, it's a lovely reflection, and covers the important parts, Donna. I especially like that next to last verse-so true.

  2. Love this Donna. I think my favorite stanza is about living watchfully. Maybe because that is how I feeling right now.
