Bonnie Harding


Life


Life is full of ups and downs
marriage, divorce, all year through.
sad day, happy day, smile, frown
birth, death and you mark one year down
The next years a little different.but oh its quite the same
There's good times and bad, happy memories and sad
a few storms and some rain, if we're lucky a little fame
We get old and tired and our time has come
Did our best and whats done is done
There may be sorrow, grief and maybe a tear
some wanting to have one more year
I say life likes to keep knocking you down
And you only find peace when there is no sound.

    Quite a doleful view of life! This is my favorite part:

    'Did our best and whats done is done
    There may be sorrow, grief and maybe a tear
    some wanting to have one more year'

    A lot of what you say in this piece is true. Fun to read. (Report) Reply
