 once upon a time


When you grow up you like different things 

therefore the trick in life is, never grow up.

Now this might seem an impossible Task.

Though consider the facts, the body grows old

your mind remains back in the days when life

Was fresh and younger than your body is now.


we have this moment-will we be old or will 

we be young, choice remains yours.

I decided many years ago to accept the responsibility 

of growing old yet remaining young in mind.

Today life's trick to is to be open and 

alert to all idea, no matter how absurd

most  people around make you feel.


Today I'm 70 -- twenty is catching up, but I'll duck 

and dive until they lay me me down. after all 

I've went beyond the three score and ten.

Tomorrow if i think about growing up then I'll 

need to accept, that the Peter Pan man has flown

And upon my stone inscribed,he remained young at heart
