Cat’s in the Cradle by Harry Chapin. One of Harry’s stories about being too busy with daily life and missing what’s important. Classic.

Bon Jovi

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said,
"I did it my way."
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

To Flatlander137: Great post, good philosophy, and wonderful attitude! I hope it's contagious to all who read it. By the way, were you a member of the Flatlanders 100-miler running group?

Was going to add my choices to the list, but looking over the postings, about everything I could think of has been mentioned. However, looking over the posts I keep seeing those who don't want to think about aging. And I say, and kindly, deal with it. A wise person always considers the inevitable. True we don't like to think on it, but it's still there. 

Life is like a new car you buy. You take cae of it, doing your best with it, but it still ages no matter what we do. And depending on that care, it ages accordingly. But is the vehcle more important than the road? The designer didn't think so. He put side windows in it to see where we are on our journey. And rear windows in it to see where we've been and judge how for we'[ve come. But the most important  is the front window. It's the largest, because where we're going is the most important, than where we've been. Sure we like to have the best vehicle we can have but all age. And some day we'll run out of gas and the journey will be over. But, as I see it, as long as there is a road in front, and the vehicle will carry me, I choose to keep going regardless of the condition of the vehcle. Like the title of one of the songs mentioned, it's the journey, not the destination. You do what you can with the vehicle.

 

When I'm 64-The Beatles-though not relavant now that I'm 68!

In My Life-The Beatles-played at my brothers memorial, still missed. 

Those Were The Days-Mary Hopkins-for me and the gang who used to hang out at Thelma's Bar.

The singer would be Alan Jackson. Love that song. Typifies how with love present, growing old with some one you love isn't near as bad as it could be.
