Getting Older

Getting older isn’t easy

Like chasing dreams that seem impossible

Life is moving too fast

I’m just trying to catch up

I wish I could turn back time and rewind

To the days when everything was easy

Things sometimes seem so hard

I wish for good things to come

Getting older is so hard

With each passing day I wonder

If I’m doing enough to make my life

As great as it could be

So grateful though to have my family

Constantly at my side

With them as my support

Getting older will be easier

Because I know I have people

There for me and ready

To be the comfort I need

In my most trying times

Trapped in the world of the puzzle
Pen in hand
Solving crossword after crossword
Grids of blanks waiting to be filled
A crossword is my haven
A sanctuary of bliss
I can sit for hours
Puzzlebound
Spellbound
Getting my brain into gear
Demonstration of intellect
I sit here each day
Doing a crossword
Obsessed and transfixed
A compulsive need
Moments in time
I’ll never get back
But time well spent
Relaxing
Thinking
And crossing new boundaries
In the world of puzzles
Moments in time
I’ll never get back
But time well spent
Relaxing
Thinking
And crossing new boundaries
In the world of puzzles
