This is how I feel about getting older

Written by on November 2, 2018 in Poetry and Song, The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

I first wrote these lyrics and the melody in 1990. Eventually, after many years it evolved into the form we have here. Arranged and produced by Stacey Young.

No apologies
Sensuality belongs to me
All the lies are fading
Truth and power waiting
Here for me!

[cue id=”4628″]

No apologies
All the roads I’ve traveled for so long
Make me realize I’m
Strong and proud of who I’ve
Come to be.

No apologies
Time is really not the enemy
Gifts abound that only
Those who live the years
can truly see.

No apologies
for the love I feel inside of me
Hold the writer’s pen and
Play with grandchildren, I’m
So happy!

…Seasons come and go and

I am growing old
Now, hear me sing!
No apologies, No, no apologies, Oh, no apologies
Oh, no apologies,

Sensuality belongs to me
Life is rich and full and
Twilight promises
There’s more to see… and more to be… and more to know… and more to grow…

About the Author: Greetings, fellow dreamer, and welcome! I’m Demian Yumei, author, singer/songwriter and artist activist. Some of my creative projects are a CD of healing music, “For the Sake of Love” and a children’s book on the interconnectedness of life, “Little Yellow Pear Tomatoes” published by Illumination Arts. Currently, I’m in the process of creating podcasts for my book series on covert abuse. My commitment is to the creative process especially as it relates to the healing journey. Whether I’m singing at a vigil for asylum seekers, memorial for political activists or sitting around a table sharing tea and conversation with friends who just want to talk heart to heart, I am always deeply moved by the human spirit to love and live with authentic beauty. Thank you for being here, for reading my posts and/or listening to my podcast. There’s much to share, much to create and the journey has just begun! Meet you on the path. .
