How do you feel about getting old

You are getting old (1)

The very best piece

... years, oh dear,
the youth and the paint are gone.
Crack bones - squeeze muscles,
sometimes you have it on your back too.
The teeth are gone in the mouth
at 8 p.m. you go to bed.
The hair is gray when it's still there
and sometimes you get weird.
Had ups and downs too
were always there when we called you.
But you should know one thing
stay true to us, otherwise we will be lost.
We wish you luck from the bottom of our hearts,
because you are our very best piece!

Fear of getting older

Author: Gabriele Look-Tabaq

Imagine if the world went backwards
and we would get younger instead of older:
We would lose knowledge instead of gaining it.
We would lose friends instead of making new ones.
We'd become alienated instead of getting closer.
Love would grow cold and joy would go out.
So let's be happy that the world is turning forward
and enjoy life as it comes.
Happy Birthday

Age

You don't fly forever as a butterfly,
one day old age will come.

The moth becomes the fold,
the Schnucki becomes the old woman.
The young man will grow up,
only wear and tear is eternal.

Yesterday with brisk wings
today the wrinkles are there.
No cosmetic ironing helps
no AOK helps.

Who has been rocking with a nimble foot,
now shuffles - with a creaky joint.
And suddenly you notice clearly:
You're older than you think.

On the green meadow of life
the fragrant grass is mowed,
apart from any youth crisis
one lives funkless and diet.

Should one cry and moan,
because one is now disengaged,
should one cling to earlier
because you get stuck every day?

Is in this close circle
the world is no longer so colorful,
Friend also the evening hour
sometimes still has gold in her mouth.

Don't be so cowardly when you get old
just change your program.
If you no longer play first violin,
you just pale on the ridge.

The great happiness of still being small

Author: Alice Lindel

The great happiness of still being small
Some people do not see it as a child
and want him about
16 or 17 would be.

But already at 18 he thinks: "Stop!
Anyone over 20 is old. "
Why? The 20 are fun -
also the 30 are still excellent.

In the 40s - what a turning point -
the 50 is almost the end.
But in the 50, little by little,
you screw the end up!

The 60 still seem passable
and only the 70 miserable.
At 70, however, one quietly hopes:
"I can make 80, God willing."

Who then survives the 80 biblically,
aiming for the 90.
Once there, he searches quickly
For friends who are even older.

But the mid-90s have been reached
- the years when nothing surprises one anymore -
you sometimes think: “Well - maybe
can you make the 100 with God's help! "

The little ZIG

The little ZIG is a fanal.
At twenty it comes for the first time.
You think the little ZIG is pretty fine
and even want to be older.

At thirty you don't mind
You already know about it
and you stand diligently and skillfully,
until the next time there is ZIGt.

At forty you come to your senses
you already belong to your guild
and maybe do in your luck
also take a look back.

At fifty comes like thunderclap
you in front of the little ZIG signal.
You hit your chest while walking
and you think: we want to see that!

And go and go with a fixed look
and suddenly it does ZIG again.
You are amazed, almost perplexed,
because this time the six stands in front of it.

You should keep loving life
there is also the seven in front of your ZIG!
Then it says before you think about it
eight before the little ZIG.

The sixties

So, friends, let's be honest:
the sixties live very dangerously
and must with all sorts of complaints
get ready at this age.

He is a longed-for man.
Most of the time, the misery starts at the top.
From full blond curly hair
there is at most a few fluff there.
Often only a thin wreath heralds
of shine lost too soon.
Only a few, the elegantly gray,
are very popular with beautiful women.
What one can conclude from:
THE SIXTY IS IN A SICK!

The eyes once fiery, full of glow,
they don't see so well for a long time.
The pupils blink tiredly
with elegant, modern glasses.
The ears are no longer the old ones
the thinker's forehead shows deep wrinkles,
the almonds have long been out,
and the teeth fall out too.
How you can easily see:
THE SIXTY IS IN A HUGE!

The man's swollen chest
also doesn't seem so self-confident anymore
as it used to be in the best days.
The heart no longer wants to beat properly.
It only drives a little
when a fragrant bee approaches.
How you can probably tell:
THE SIXTY IS IN A SICK!

The muscles used to be full of strength,
are gradually totally slack.
The corner stone rattles heavily
as if it was rusting.
In the meantime,
the sciatica is already seized,
meanwhile the rheumatism undiminished,
prevents the sixties from stooping.
How you can quickly recognize:
THE SIXTY IS IN A SICK!

His spleen is troubling him,
the liver too - it comes from the fungus!
Whether bile, bladder or kidneys,
nothing really wants to work.
What the dentition did not chew properly,
is also badly digested by the stomach.
The big belly is in the way too
the intestines so lazy and so sluggish,
that even the bottom full of anger
just showing its wrinkles does.
What you can really see:
THE SIXTY IS IN A SICK!

Now the tricky question arises for me
what I say about the - well, about the thing!
Perhaps it would be best
if you compare it like this:
what used to be in Sturm und Drang
immediately succeeded at the first attempt,
that just takes time today.
Provided it comes to that!
What you can really conclude from:
THE SIXTY IS IN A SICK!

The thighs are so heavy
as if there was pudding inside:
The meniscus has now also closed
fixed in both knees.
The beautiful calves have been around for years
cramped from driving a lot.
A corn on every toe
that hurts and hurts terribly,
Not to mention sweat and flat feet!
He should also show happiness!
As if you can ask for that:
THE SIXTY IS IN A SICK!

Congratulations on your 60th birthday

Clarification:

So that the impression does not arise
that the ...... is so dirty:
We spoke of Mr. Jedermann
and not from him. Look at him!

Doesn't he come straight from there?
as if he were thirty-two ’
Elastic, fresh and without wrinkles?
The sport kept him so young!

Keep it up, the choice is yours
we don't care
whether you are fine or bad,
because - please, understand us right,
it is very important to us
that you are in a good mood
if you make it to 65 - and we?
We'll all be back then!

The ages

It's strange with age.
If you are 13 and still a child,
you know crystal clear that the age
starts around 20!

Are you 20 yourself?
you don't think so stiffly anymore,
if one believes, however, around 30
be ready for bulky waste!

Thirties a little wiser
and shaped by the struggle for life
have the beginning of old age
set at point 40.

Forties with a penchant for brooding
say - dull as a bassoon -
50 is the age limit
and from then on one is junk!

But the _____ he, the boys
don't think about it at all.
All who laugh are young
live, love, carry on.

Age starts at 100!

Variants for the 5th stanza

version 1

You still feel young at 50,
because only half a century full.
You're old when you're around 60
Retirement is about to begin.

Variant 2

Fifties with wanderlust
are far from any frustration,
because they are pretty sure
at 60 it's over with the giggles.

Sixties, oh what a miracle
but are still fully mobile,
at 70 the year will come
then we are totally senile.

Variation 3

But the 50s, the smart ones,
don't think about it at all
and just want to go on living
as if half were just around.

Then the 60 has dawned,
from then on some things still happen,
you will think again
what life then gives you.

70 years are done
seldom have you been exhausted
the bones are slowly becoming brittle,
not so your mind, it is still active.

The 80 has now dawned
just look ahead, keep hoping
live patiently on year after year,
keep climbing the ladder of life.

Peace, laughter, no pain
wish you with all my heart
all of your children, grandchildren
and great-grandchildren.

The youth melted away very quickly

The youth melted away very quickly
the ____ have now started.
Instead of Clerasil, something for pimples,
you also need moist compresses now.
Cucumber slices on the eyes,
can rob you of the wrinkles.
Face lifting cream,
closes all wrinkles
But past things come to you
you start laughing really hard.
Always remember forever
the others are not getting any younger either.
And do you fall asleep at the bar again
because the last beer was too much.
Put this sign around you and fill it in,
then you will surely get home safely.

May only be used once a quarter!

I'm doing it today!
When I'm full, tie this card to a buttonhole and
Take me Home!

Surname: __________________

Address: ____________________

Don't knock, just lay me in front of the door!
When my wife appears, make you come away!

The zero

Author: Horst Winkler of the Verse forge

She appears for the first time
Then you are happy and in a good mood
The zero proves: You are almost tall
You just feel great

The zero appears for the second time
Do you still have a choice in many areas
How it will go on with you in the future
Most of it is still open to you

Then the zero comes right after the three
You think: Nothing is over yet
You plan the future without hesitation
After happiness in life is on the hunt

Then she comes for the fourth time
You start to brood easily
If you think about it now:
The options are limited

The five paired with a zero
You're still in good shape there
You now know it won't get any better
And you do your duty well

Then the zero is attached to the six
Then you steer straight ahead
In somewhat calmer areas
One now becomes wise and also mild

There is a zero after a seven
There is hardly any fuss anymore
It has already been internalized
You're not young, but not old yet

The zero with an eight in the league
Announced as happy news
Look here, I am full of courage to live
I'm still doing pretty well

Makes the zero even after the nine
Then there is reason to be very happy
If you still like life there
Every day is full of magic

The double zero when it reaches
Well it really looks like a miracle
In addition, healthy and in good spirits
I wish that you succeed

You’re turning fifty

When gray hair only sprouts
you have trouble with cold feet,
when you ask yourself: "Am I doing it sensibly?"
Then you can bet you will be "fifty"!

Do you fall asleep more often while watching TV
your shoulder hurts today, your leg yesterday,
want peace and quiet only in the future,
then the time has come, then you will be "fifty"!

You do beauty care and diet
you just try what goes on
it doesn't run so cheap for women either,
then it is certain, then you will be "fifty"!

But you shouldn't get annoyed now,
don't let your life spoil!
Keep away from you annoyance and frustration,
and live consciously every day!

And now, otherwise it’s going to be too dry
three cheers, you old house!
I say cheers to your "fifty"
and wish good luck and celebrate properly!

Somewhat gray and a little bald

A little gray and a little bare,
oh, there was once a youth.
But what good is the whimper,
dear friend, things get worse.

Hair grows out of the ears,
the sense of smell is lost.
You still have to fight
to dampen the nasal juice,
that gathers at the top
and jammed down as a drop.
The pupil is flat and cloudy
despite the sharp glasses.

You get paradentosis,
your teeth are getting loose
Painful as it once came
they are taken from you now.
And the artificial dentition
is very often an obstacle.
Let us keep quiet about kidney pain
from the strong knock on the heart
from the stomach, this dog,
he is by no means healthy.

Below the abdominal wall becomes wrinkled,
the urine is sugary.
The bottom, once firm and round,
suffers greatly from muscle wasting.
If a wind escapes you
your shirt will be damp in a moment.
And wrinkles full of the rectum
can barely hold a bowel movement.
Often disturb your peace
walnut-sized hemorrhoids.

And the so-called good
much touted divining rod,
hangs as a slightly curved hose,
under the wrinkled belly.
Just to pee
serves the Schnippedillerich.
And he's at this point
really no source of joy.
Also the lovely femininity,
smells this and knows about it.
She comes to the end mercilessly:
He's demure because he has to.

And in spite of everything, dear boy,
I bring you as a gift
Wishes for the next year.
Your urine is clear again
all limbs should tighten,
You should climb like monkeys.
In short, you should become a playboy
many years here on earth.

Youthful freshness back and forth

Youthful freshness back and forth,
You are not someone until you are 50.
Beauty care and diet,

Because at 50 it's down to business

Small life kaleidoscope

Author: Dora Hausstein

Man, when he looks at his life like this,
when it passes by like a kaleidoscope,
then he usually establishes in the old days
that it was just work - and worry and plagues!

The time when as a baby you are protected by parents
was still really carefree, then the mind was missing
to consciously enjoy this happiness.
Oh, this would often annoy us later!

As a school child you have - how stupid! - the goal,
that you want to grow up as soon as possible,
and thinks in youthful folly that something is missing
at the same time, the adult is still burdened with enough of life!

At 18 you can drive or vote,
also make a wedding, oh how beautiful!
You indulge in happiness and love
and now believe that it will always stay that way!

But oh, life may not last forever,
the beautiful years go by so quickly
because life hurries on
and suddenly you are “off the hook”!

You quickly went through the 30s,
the melting of youth, it flees from our cheeks.
In the summer of life we ​​are only "in full bloom",
but that's also the time when you see the first wrinkles!

Life is still beautiful in the 40s,
but then sometimes you want to turn the time backwards!
If the year reached shows a 6 or 7 at the front,
then birthday celebrations are often written in lower case.

Because many aches and pains often make life difficult for us,
and some wish that they were 20 again!
But that's no use to you, watch, it doesn't stop.
(Luckily no one can turn it yet!)

Everyone comes to the threshold of old age
and whoever makes the best of it is bright.
When there is a tweak here and there, humor is often difficult
but as the best doctor he often helps us a lot!

And sometimes squeezes the heart and pulls it in the cross,
certainly every age has its charm,
and every old man can be praised happy,
who still knows how to live happily at 80 or 90.

So nobody should ever despair
and also sprinkle the "mature" years with humor!
Then everything can be mastered with a lot more drive,
then a heart is still young at 90 years of age!

Man, you are getting old!

The name! Man, how was he?
Memories are revived.
You rummage in the past
have a thousand things at hand.
But no matter how the brain torments,
the name! Only the name is missing.
And you will surely soon realize:
This is how it begins. Man, you are getting old.

You go down from the second floor
step out onto the street fresh and lively.
But suddenly you wonder sourly
have I really finished?
You can no longer trust yourself
and climb up to have a look.
And say - your fist clenched in anger:
“This is how it begins. Man, you're getting old. "

You need something from the cupboard.
You know what too. Thank God.
You specifically open the door
and ask yourself promptly: "What do I want here?"
Now you are brooding. You are gripped by frustration,
because you just knew it.
And that kind of thing doesn't leave you cold anymore.
This is how it begins. Man, you are getting old.

Before going on a trip
you first hide your savings account well.
You're not at home for a long time
and nobody can find out the hiding place.
When you come back, you start searching:
"Where do I have my savings account?"
Why do I never keep something like this?
This is how it begins. Man, you are getting old.

You're on the train. You are traveling.
Then you remember: The iron!
Already inspired by holiday joys,
did you quickly iron a shirt?
Now you think about home all the time.
"My God, is the plug out too?"
Force yourself to calm down, by force!
This is how it begins. Man, you are getting old.

For breakfast you take three tablets
they should save your memory.
Suddenly you wonder very uneasily
did I really take it?
And if you swallow it, you've forgotten
always before or after eating?
You don't know which rule applied.
This is how it begins. Man, you are getting old.

You are tired of it and in no time you will
to give you a pill box.
Under the subjects - no question
The days of the week stand neatly.
The next morning you think:
"What do we have today - Thursday?"
You throw the box that it pops.
This is how it begins. Man, you are getting old.

You don't see well! The doctor will figure it out
and write down eye drops for you.
Now every four hours you should
put the drops in your eyes.
But every time - you are sorry -
you forget the exact time.
In complete despair you soon say:
This is how it begins. Man, you are getting old.

You buy - something like that already exists -
A wristwatch with an alarm function.
You are happy, now everything is clear
it also beeps on time, wonderful!
But you look thoughtfully at the clock
and ask yourself: "Why does it beep?"
It beeps as if from an ambush.
This is how it begins. Man, you are getting old.

Machines can be repaired
Lubricate gears that are difficult to move.
If nothing comes out of the computer,
then you change modules.
So much has already been achieved
it is not so easy with humans.
That is why the council can only be this:
Don't worry, be prepared for it.

Sixty - sixty

first performed on the 60th birthday
by Christoph von Bismarck

The weave on the head is thinning,
many a tooth turns out to be no longer real,
and the eyesight also gradually weakens:
Sixty - sixty.

Even if you feel like a great pike in the pond,
the time is up, where you drink yourself with impunity.
Yes, some exuberance very quickly takes revenge:
sixty - sixty.

You feel as hammered as the woodpecker's tree,
in the head one often does not find one's way around,
if you don't forget anything, then you are really happy:
sixty - sixty.

I long for sun, youth and warmth,
the sciatica plagues me very much, then I groan,
I start singing a song, then I croak:
sixty - sixty.

And yet, if you judge yourself fairly,
so you really don't find yourself so bad.
And if someone complains, they say: "He's happy
the lout will only be sixty himself! "

Bad off

So friends let's say it honestly
a ___ iger who lives dangerously,
he has to deal with all sorts of complaints,
get ready at this age.
He is a longed-for man

of shine lost too soon.
Few of the posh - gray ones
are very popular with beautiful women.

a ___ iger is in a bad way.

The eyes, once fiery, full of glow,
they don't see so well for a long time.
The pupils blink wearily,
through elegant - modern glasses.
The ears are no longer the old ones
the thinker's forehead gets deep wrinkles.
The bile is long gone
and the teeth fall out too.

From which one can easily see
a ___ iger is in a bad way.

The proudly swollen man's breast,
also doesn't seem so self-confident anymore,
like before in the best days,
the heart doesn't want to beat so right anymore,
when a fragrant bee approaches.

How you can probably tell
a ___ iger is in a bad way.

The muscles, formerly full of strength,
are gradually already a bit slack,
the smoker's lungs rattle a lot,
as if it was rusting.

the sciatica is already a bit stuck,
meanwhile the rheumatism undiminished,
much disabled at the age of ___.

How you can quickly see
a ___ iger is in a bad way.

His spleen is troubling him,
the liver too, it comes from the fungus,
whether bile, bladder or kidneys,
nothing wants to work properly anymore.
What the bit doesn't chew properly
is badly digested by the stomach,
and the intestines also become lazy and sluggish,
a big belly is often in the way.

What you can really see:
a ___ iger is in a bad way.

The thighs are so heavy
as if there was pudding inside
also the meniscus has now,
fixed in both knees,
the beautiful calves have been for years
cramped from driving too many cars,
a corn on every toe,
that hurts and hurts terribly,
not to mention sweat and flat feet,
he should also show happiness.

As if you can ask for that:
A ___ iger is in a bad way.

So that the impression does not arise
that _______________ it goes exactly like this:
I only talked about Mr.Everyone
and not from Him, look at Him!
Doesn't he come straight along
as if he were forty-two?
Elastic, fresh and without wrinkles,
his mistress kept him young!

So better ____________ stay on,
so kind and so wonderfully cheerful.
Because we don't care
whether you are fine or stale.
But your wife the good piece
she will take care of your happiness!

that you are invited today,
and congratulate with joy.

Over fifty - condition report

Man do I have a pig;
no pig gets that old
should one be happy about it -
the older ones know exactly.

Freed from youth are flesh and soul,
when I torture myself over 50.
The future cannot be hope either;
man grows old and soon runs in.

But first, it cannot be avoided -
there come a lot of great, little sufferings.
First of all, the hair recedes,
and the belly grows - without motherhood.

When you get up - in the morning,
first one knee cracks, then the other knee.
Then in the bathroom, in the wet place -
takes and takes the morning toilet.

At the end you have to be comfortable
to apply cream to the feet against calluses.
The mirror is then held up to:
There weren't that many wrinkles yesterday.

The breakfast tastes like in the old days -
you just need space to spread out.
The morning paper has to be here now
there is nothing left to say to each other.

Startled in this silence -
you miss your glasses as usual.
What just moves you:
Where did I put it?

When reading something comes to mind:
Can't that be the ... well you know?
The name is on the tip of my tongue;
there are bubbles in the brain as much as there are in the lungs.

I heard it from my back
it arrived all of a sudden.
You bend because you have to
it's no laughing matter, the lumbago.

In the forties one was still satisfied;
now the hemorrhoids are already burning.
And constantly the ears rustle cheerfully -
A drop can fall from the nose

And the good old bubble jet -
stutters to your agony now.
Only one thing pushes a quiet spring;
your potency.

We're almost all in the same boat
and make the best of our need.
And we can still grasp each other at 90
there's a drink from sippy cups.

From zero to zero

(fits every 10th anniversary)

The first zero is an experience
the second one takes proudly and easily,
the third zero will be as a result
mostly achieved effortlessly and smoothly.

The fourth zero, climbed with verve,
also knows no problem,
but honestly and strictly speaking
it is uncomfortable at times.

The fifth zero is worn with dignity,
you feel fit, like once in May,
the so-called half-time hurdle
but it is surely over.

The sixth zero secretly forces quietly
the summer of life on your knees,
but the great journey continues
with confidence and energy.

The seventh zero brings and donates
Adoration, esteem, also respect,
turned towards one's own existence
some have already discovered themselves.

The next zero then appears as the eighth
calendar-wise on the plan,
not stormy loud, no - gently, gently
devoted to quiet things.

Experience the ninth zero in a healthy way
mostly remains a pious, silent dream,
asking and answering
stand like a rock in empty space.

So one zero lines up with another,
they fit like stone on stone,
God gives us life, makes us wander,
He also teaches us to be content.

When are you old

A mirror hangs in your room
you stand in front of it with your head bowed
and sighs because a gray sheen
shows up on your temples.

Your pupil strikes while reading,
and you will need new teeth soon. -
You sigh and mumble in the silence:
Oh yes, I'm getting old now.

You sigh and should rather smile
your hair gets a silver tint too
and your forehead a few wrinkles,
that's all external.

Some of them may be only twenty
and outside of splendid shape,
but inside it is serene, dry, rancid
and lousy - that's old!

Of course, you can no longer grow
at sixty - but at least -
as long as you care for humor and faxing
and tenderness has a purpose,

As long as your eyes shine
in the fire of enthusiasm,
you are with your sixty years
despite glasses and teeth - still young!

When you zero

When you zero for the first time
is about a lot of commotion.
You are now a new citizen
now the parents have a lot to do.

You don't actually notice anything
one is still zero, not yet a year.
And a pat, quite unexpectedly,
then the first cry is started.

You are hardly there, you hardly believe it
will be spanked for the first time.
The first time it delights screams,
but that will soon be over later.

When you get ten
that's usually nice for parents.
Because, as it is now,
one is from the worst.

One wishes impatiently
that one zeros for the second time.
Then you are in the middle of life
is full of momentum and full of aspiration.

If you now zero for the third time,
it is still not torture.
Body and mind are now standing
only really in the bloom.

But no sooner have you made a mistake
one becomes ten for the fourth time;
is happy - yes - exuberant
and happy to be receptive to compliments.

But if - like a dear friend -
the zero appears for the fifth time,
then you stand amazed
before that half a hundred.
One asks oneself with a naive sense
where has all this time gone?
And probably pulling his hair out
whether this fifty years.
Comfortable - they say - it's supposed to go now.
Well, serenity is nice!
However, this also takes revenge,
because suddenly you're "sixty".

Now every child knows that
that these are the best years.
Only some do not see it
want to be even younger.

Many even get quirks
they want to zero backwards.
But you should be with your years
do not act ungrateful.
Why should one bother
subtract the years again,
but the dear life
given so much shine.

With "seventy" you have made it
is full of experience, courage and strength
and bears the burden of life
still light and yet with dignity.

So let's drink with the wish
that many beautiful years beckon.
Our toast is for ours
and everyone says cheerfully "Cheers!"

Who is getting old

Whoever becomes _____ is your own fault!
It takes a lot of patience
and good - or bad - will,
as well as innumerable pills
and trust heavenward too,
and finally a good heart.

What goes hand in hand with age
are defects of very different kinds,
who often spoil our mood,
but from whom we do not die.
The principle of being better than seeming
is no consolation for stiff legs.

The back hurts, the knee is stiff,
so one continues to be ripe for demolition.
and then - in part or in full -
the brain matter also shrinks,
what one feels at first
that the memory often fades.

Which is why you write everything down carefully
on pieces of paper that you lose promptly.
You just get more stupid, crooked, mute.
What can we do about it?
Unfortunately, one becomes against grief
never immune.

You have to prove yourself every day
where else should you complain?
You give up and exercise patience ...
whoever becomes _____ is your own fault!
