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, make me kind of sad.
There was a time not long ago when life was quite a blast,
Now I understand about living in the past.
We used to go to friends homes, football games and lunches,
Now we go to therapy, MRI's and after funeral brunches.
We used to have hangovers and have parties that were fun.
Now we have body aches and sleep the days away,
We used to go out dining, and couldn't get our fill.
Now we ask for doggie bags and come home and take a pill.
We used to travel often to places near and far,
But now we get backache from travelling in the car.
We used to go out shopping for clothes at the mall,
But now we do not bother as the sizes are too small.
But that my friends is how life is, and now my tale is told,
So enjoy each day, and live it up, before you're too damn old.
You pass this way only once, so enjoy it while you can,
Live a lot, Laugh a lot and Love a lot.
Enjoy 2018. Blessings Jimeka
