"Enjoy it while you can... Live, Laugh and Love!!"

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 understandAbout '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're too darn old!!
So enjoy it while you can...
Live, Laugh and Love!!

This wonderful poem was sent to me by email and came from Victor Koo.
Thanks Victor for this very timely reminder.
As a matter of fact, in many of the gatherings I have had the pleasure to entertain with a Sing-Along session on Ukulele or Guitar, the old timers never fail to remind each other about this...fact of life.
They always request for me to play the song," Enjoy's later than you think! "
And everyone seems to brighten up with much sparkle and life again.
