Don’t write me off just yet

Look at me I am old and infirm
But I still want to learn
I’m not ready yet to go
Though I am rather slow
So, don’t write me off just yet.

My hair may be white
But I can read and write
I can’t walk very far
And I still need a car
So, don’t write me off just yet

I can still enjoy a laugh
But need help in the bath
I can wash my own hair
But need a stick to the chair
Please don’t write me off just yet.

My brain is still up for a game
Though my eyes need a frame
Some teeth are not all mine
But the rest of me is fine
So please, don’t write me off just yet.
