When people grow old, all that they need and want is a lot of love, care, and support.

When I am old and gray and can’t see properly

When I need support to stand and a steady hand

When I can no longer properly hold a spoon

When I can no longer eat properly as I drip and drool

When I no longer have many friends around

When I no longer can hear any clear sounds

When I’m no longer a beautiful sight to see

When I can no longer be healthy and free

When I can no longer go for walks outside

When I can no longer do things just right

When all this happens and am old and gray

There is only one thing I want and need

Is your tender loving care and support

      This is so sweet. Aging is a process that we all must face and this poem helps to understand how love remains to comfort. I went through this with my two parents and learned the importance of being able to support them as they aged. Beautiful poem!
