It wasn’t meant to be like this, when I first
Excitement and future promise, was what life was all
Now as my time grows shorter, I cherish every day.
Though I still sometimes reflect, on where I went
I had such grandiose plans, of things I would achieve.
That I have done so few of them, is still hard to
Have I made a difference, stood out from all the rest,
I would like to think in all I’ve done, at least
I tried my best.
My dealings were always honest, well except for one
And the love and support of family, has always seen
Why don’t we see a coming mistake, until it
is too late,
Do we really have control, or are we guided just by
As I sit and contemplate, of things and time gone
I worry that my life, is rushing on so fast.
I feel that I must hurry, do things I haven’t
And start each day with a joyous welcome, of the morning
For I know that if I delay, tomorrow I’ll be
For wasting precious time, that yesterday I had.
So I can’t sit here morosely, debating when
I have to mow the lawn, and I have to do it NOW!
