JUST AMBLING ON
JUST AMBLING ON>>>>>
What makes it that we are no longer strong?
The years have taken its hold
Why must we ever grow old?
Why do bones and flesh fail to give support?
Noticeable is the way you hold your cup
Noticeable is the unsteadiness of the one - no longer a pup.
Gone are the days when on that podium you stood.
Proud of everything you did that was good.
On the dance floor you gladly did your stuff
You took applause, you did it madly enough.
Now things aren't what they used to be
I know that we should be grateful for~
the love and care of those most close to us:
for memories shared that make us 'be' ...
the man/woman we are today ~ grateful for life
come what may.
The heart conceals a secret code ~ it alone will take us
along life's pathway.
I watch the sunset and wonder why there's reason to cry.
Sad and happy memories keep flooding in >>>>
It ain't natural to feel like this ~ as we recall moments of bliss,
but now that they are just a memory <<<
We'll just amble on ~ Just Like This!
