When I am Old

When I am an old man
I will be gentle, wise and kind.
Full of delight and wonder.
The lover of all who smile.

I shall drink coffee with my friends
Watching the glories of youth
Drift by, unaware that I will
Capture their grace, embellish
It with verse, releasing a poem.

Beautiful birds dancing upon light,
Forever elegant ambassadors of life.
