Love Me Forever-When I Am Old-Poem & Quotes

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

When I am old - Love me always

When I am old - Love me always

Old age is when we need all the love and support from our near and dear.

Old age is when the body starts dictating our every move. The bones ache, and the pain makes the world seem bleak.

Life is a song and dance when we are young, but we need unconditional love, support, and care as we grow old.

Expressing my thoughts in this poem-

Love Me Forever Always-When I Am Old

When I am old and gray

And can’t see properly

When I need support to stand

And a steady hand

To guide and be with me always

When I can no longer hold a spoon

And as I eat, I drip and drool

When I no longer

Have many friends around

When I no longer

Can hear clear sounds

When I’m no longer

A beautiful sight to see

When I can no longer

Be healthy and free

When I can no longer

Go for walks outside

When I can no longer

Do things just right

When all this happens

And I am old and gray

There is only one thing

I want and need

Is your tender loving care

And your support

Love me forever


Even when I am old
