    Enjoy Life

    Another year has passed
    And we’re all a little older.

    Last summer felt hotter
    And winter seems much colder.

    I rack my brain for happy thoughts,
    To put down on my pad,

    But lots of things, That come to mind
    Just make me kind of sad.

    There was a time not long ago
    When life was quite a blast.

    Now I fully understand
    About ‘Living in the Past’.

    We used to go to friends homes,
    Football games and lunches.

    Now we go to therapy, to hospitals,
    And after-funeral brunches.

    We used to have hangovers,
    From parties that were gay.

    Now we suffer body aches
    And sleep the night away.

    We used to go out dining,
    And couldn’t get our fill.

    Now we ask for doggie bags,
    Come home and take a pill.

    We used to travel often
    To places near and far.

    Now we get backaches
    From riding in the car.

    We used to go out shopping
    For new clothing at the Mall

    But, now we never bother…
    All the sizes are too small.

    That, my friend is how life is,
    And now my tale is told.

    So, enjoy each day and live it up…
    Before you’re too damn old!!

          At almost 73, I hate to admit it. But you’re dead on.
          Ooops, I guess I should rephrase that to you are correct.
