There is no cure for ageing 
Because ageing isn't an illness, but a way of life. 
And some are better at it than others 
The secret? 
Thoink yourself younger than you really are: 
On a crowded bus or tube, offer your seat to a young man 
Design a website, invent an app 
Take up Zumba, forget to nap 
For no-one can predict what's lying in store 
With a future more challenging than ever before. 
So enjoy the adventure 
Time flies, they say, but it's us that fly 
Time sits on its hands, as we rush by. 
And life has a way of gathering speed 
So seize the day, we're a special breed 
In the blink of an eye 
The wave of a hand 
The beat of a heart 
The brush of a tear 
You are old. 
But valued still. 
Welcome to the fold.
