    That was very nice....Aging with grace is very important.We hav to know what we do when we are aging.I have come across many old people creating problems for others.As we age we should restrict our deeds towards health and try to use the time in acts which will render peace.
    Good poem.

    Dear Shanthi,

    Wonderful poem.
    Growing old together is one of the most beautiful phenomenon a couple can experience. The wrinkles, the toothless grin or the alternate dentures all add to the beauty. The concept of beauty changes with age to rest on the real aspect from physical to the heart.
    It feels good to experience the feeling of growing old together. I guess one of the dashing couples Ive met are septugenarians and octogenarians. I can see the immense love the couple share by just looking at them and cant help pray to God that I too experience this wonderful feeling in life.That would indeed be a blessing.

    Loved your poem Shanthi.

    Love,
    Devika

    Dear Shanti
    Such a beautiful poem, the title itself is so catchy.
    As far as I know Veda said he is only 21 so u need to be only 18 so why think about old age now..............
    Yes growing old might be a pain but once your loved one is beside you all this will vanish away and you don't even realise that you are getting old. Beautiful wordings Shanti.
    I am still 16 so let me think about it when I grow old.
    Hats off for the wordings.

    hi EQ,

    I am also still wondering what is the actual age of veda. anyways i am going to be always 2 years younger to him as you say...

    and eq being 16 at heart always is the secret of being happy.
    thanks for your encouragement.:bowdown
