Life Is What We Do At The Moment

Think Again

There was a lady who I don't even know her name

She walks with a cane

She struggles to walk and has trouble when she talks

Has a heart of gold and her children are all old

Their photos she carries with her where ever she goes

She smiles even though her body aches

Appreciates others who help her each day

She is proud she is still independent and has her wits about her

Years have passed and she is the last of her family

Proud as she can be to see the world and all its technology

Fast paced and in a rush

She sometimes gets pushed and hushed

Remembering when she was young

Alive and well

She could do anything and would give you a run for your money

They called her the little energizer bunny

Only if you knew

Then you would not be so quick to judge

The wonderful lady that is in the body of all of us

We just don't want to admit it

We like to think we will always stay young and pretty

Handsome and quick

Truth is we all will get old

But the beauty is loving each person as ourselves

Stop and wait a few minutes two let her walk in front

Help her lift those bundles she attempts to carry

Hold her hand when she is not steady

Say hello and it is alright if she takes her time

Your heart is mine

bethperry Thanx for reading and to see other people help others instead of hurt may take awhile.So many people think of themselves and anyone else is just in their way.Have a good day.

I live in an area where a lot of older folks live. I can relate to this Hub. People should be kind to them, cause we'll all be there some day ourselves.

Thumbs up and awesome! Every word is lived by someone every day, and it's all true. What a giving and touching piece. Thanks much.
