Getting Old

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 darn old
