           The Immortals

      Looking at our elders   its easy to see
That their beauty grows eternally
      Lines on their faces that map the years
Formed in laughter  Birthed through tears

       Wondering at just what price
Our happiness became their sacrifice
        Yet to busy to lend a listening ear
Ashamed of the wisdom we are afraid to hear

         Gazing at this beauty of the majesty called age
          So unappreciated   An unturned page
      Of knowledge  Experience
Such a wonderful story
             this ageless beauty
    Is my Gods Glory!
