Appreciation for senior citizens center, in verse
May 18, 2012 - Kathleen G. Watts, Roque Bluffs, Maine
I would like to share what our Riverton Senior Citizens Center means to me and to many others, I'm sure:
What do you do when your spouse has passed on?
When your children have all gone away?
Do you sit there and pine
and grow bitter, and whine
and wish you were dead every day?
When there's nothing to do
that's exciting or new?
Grandkids are nice,
but that just doesn't suffice
You need something to stimulate you!
For me "senior center" is just the right thing;
You meet new and old friends just your age
Old memories are shared
that make you feel glad
and bring you right out of your blue!
This center n Riverton is special,
I share lunch with new friend and old
Then cribbage is fun, or other games too
It's a group that puts new life in you!
God made us each one to be caring
To be loving and kids -- that is true
At the center I find this renewing
God's blessings to each on one of you.
