Grow Old Along With Me

In behalf of my parent's 24th wedding anniversary...

Grow Old Along With Me
Robert Browning

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand
Who saith "A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!"

Thank you for the sentiment. There is something wonderful about growing old with the person you love, so I love that song too.

The entire poem is so beautiful. Each of its 32 stanzas is a gem. Is there any one who has recited the entire poem with music?

Because of my love for this poem, I have accidently stumbled on your blog.

"Grow Old Along With Me" is the first stanza of the 32 stanza poem you referenced entitled, "Rabbi Ben Ezra." While I am not aware of an entire recitation with music, there is a free reading available through Learn Out Loud. It is track 74 of "Poems Every Child Should Know." Copy and paste to get to the site. Hope this is of help!
