never grow old
Never grow old, they say,
Stay young in heart and mind,
Let laughter fill your days,
And leave your worries behind.

Embrace the child within,
With eyes that still see wonder,
Hold onto dreams that spin,
And let your spirit wander.

Time may pass, but you remain,
A soul untouched by age,
In the dance of life, you'll reign,
With wisdom as your sage.

So cherish each moment, bold,
Live fully, with a heart that's pure,
For in the story that's told,
May you always be forever, never grow old.
