I’M GETTING OLDER

              I'M GETTING OLDER


 I first opened my eyes, once tiny and bright 
 To this world,

 A memory I do hold but remember not as I was 
 A baby.

 Pictures of my life are few compared to the window 
 Of my mind,

 Once only a child, things I knew were also few, children 
 That played

 With this child are lost with time, always in my mind.


 The world seems smaller as my life has spread further 
 With the passing days,

 I'm getting older, once I was a young teenager moving 
 Ever so fast.

 Birthday to birthday comes a new number pinned to my 
 Aging soul,

 Grateful am I with a much appreciated thank you and 
 Love of God.

 That he has given me life this long, I hope and pray 
 That one I'll

 Be forever remembered and once in a while thought of 
 By you,

 I'm getting older, maybe a touch wiser, possibly a 
 Better me.

 I'm getting older, remember who I am, my name is Keith,


 I am a mortal man living in this gift, laid in my hand.


                           Keith Garrett
