The Best is Yet to Be

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: March 18, 2017

Thanking God for technology…

"Grow old with me," the poet wrote.
"The best is yet to be."
The good old days weren't all that great.
On that can't we agree?

No Microsoft. No internet.
No iPhone or iPad.
No Amazon or Trader Joes.
Good Lord! We had it bad!

No CNN. No GPS.
No Skype or DVR.
No blue tooth hands-free key-less locks.
We really have come far.

Technology has graced our lives
with comfort, ease and speed.
Compared to what our parents had,
we're blest. Aren't we agreed?

But don't forget the things they prized
that just might slip away.
Like quiet strolls, board games at night
and taking time to pray.

So as we age and look ahead,
let's mine the past for gold
while keeping up on what's to come
as you and I grow old.
