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
