Ladies of a Certain Age
You are you and I am me
And neither are what we used to be
Our little hips have grown in size
There’s more padding on our waist and thighs.
Our heels may not be so high
We have more wrinkles around each eye
But with age comes wisdom too
I like me and I like you.
We have less doubt that we did before
We’ve been around, and heard it all
So many adventures still to be had
And some behaviour still quite bad!
We know now though what is true
It’s in what we say and what we do
Not how we look or what we earned
With age this is a lesson learned.
We thank our bodies every day
They’ve done their best in every way
And even when we’re 1-0-3
You’ll still be you and I’ll still be me x
