Little Poem, but so true it hurts!


 Another year has passed us by
And we’re all a little older.
Last summer felt much hotter,
And winter seems much colder.

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 weddings,
Football games and lunches.
Now we visit nursing homes
And after-funeral brunches.

We used to have hangovers,
From parties that were crazy.
Now we suffer body aches,
We’re sleepy and we’re lazy.

We used to go out dining,
And couldn’t get our fill.
Now we ask for doggie bags,
Go home and take a pill.

We used to often travel
To places near and far.
Now we get sore asses
Just sitting in the car.

We used to go to nightclubs
And drink a little booze.
Now we stay home at night
And sleep right through the news.

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…
