Life

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Simple but to the point, a poem that tells it the way it is.

Another year has passed
And we're all a little older.
Last summer felt 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 go to funeral homes,
And after-funeral brunches.

We used to have hangovers,
From parties that were gay.
Now we suffer body aches?
And while 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 often travel
To places near and far.
Now we get sore asses
From riding in the car.

We used to go to nightclubs
And drink a little booze.
Now we stay home at night
And watch the evening 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 damned old!


This weekend has certainly brought this home to me! First the rv problems and now DH is in ICU. Looks like we might go to step-down tomorrow and maybe home in 2-3 days. Not fun when one is away from hom!

    Oh, Pat! This was five days ago! I hope you're all home and doing better now! How terrible! I'm sorry you've had to go through this! I have to say, I could relate to a lot of your poem! I'm sorry I've been so absent... it makes me miss a lot of what is going on. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    We all take for granted when we are able to do things. It is very humbling when the simple things become tasks.

    So sorry to hear about your current problems. I pray for a quick & full recovery for hubby and a safe return home. Sorry I have been so silent lately.
