I Hope My Wife Understands

The colors in my favorite chairs
The same as my hair are fading
Fortunately I still have my hair
And the chairs are still comfortable
So goes my worries about aging.

My wife wants me to buy new chairs
I told her our chairs satisfies me
She says they're  too old and worn
Since I'm about like the chairs
Maybe she intends replacing me too
I guess I will have to wait and see.

If you are happy with what you have
Like I am content with our old chairs
Why not keep it as I intend keeping
Our old worn chairs on the porch
For me no other chairs could compare.

I hope my wife understands....
