Another year has passed

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

I used to look forward to Christmas Day,
But now the bills I can not pay

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 often travel,
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 are too old!

(A poem by an Unknown Author)
