As you Age (to the Golden Years)

As you age you are teaching me patient
And I wish to understand the reason
For your resistance to hear me when I am
Weary, needing you to laugh with me
As you age you demand so much of my
Time
And still I wish to understand the reason
For your resistance to hear me when I am
Weary, needing you to smile with me
As you age you tell me stories of past
Success and woes
And I wish to understand the reason
For your resistance to let it go and leave it
Be, needing you to dance with me
As you age and age I see beauty in your eyes
Even when you cannot see your own beauty
And you say “Who, no not me!”
And still I wish to understand the reason
For your resistance to hear me say “Yes
You, are beautiful just as me!”
As you age and age even when weary
My heart love you even more
And I wish to understand the reason
For your resistance to love you as I
Love me.”

About the author

empressjournee

I was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for several great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme God, he is using giants and various people to help develop the divinity within and allowed me to see the greatness of his love. I consider myself a singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my gifts.
