Time won't stand still.....

Time won’t stand still against my will
Another birthday ahead
Another year to add
Life is more precious than ever before
Now there are grandchildren
That I adore
Time won’t stand still against my will
I look in the mirror
I notice the changes
And with each birthday
Age advances
Time won’t stand still against my will
I smile at the children
So eager to grow
They do not know
Time won’t stand still against my will.
