Another Year Has Passed...

Another year has passed 
And we're all a little older.
Last summer felt hotter 
And winter seems much colder.
old man
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.
old man
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. 
old man
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 damn old!!
