Life In Perspective


Opaque windows block my view
Left over bubble gum hard to chew
Memories of childhood start anew
Old friends visiting now too few
Time is passing going too fast
Know that my life isn’t going to last
Obituary columns full of friends
Hope they had time to make amends
Wish I could see old pals again
They said to visit but didn’t say when
I’m glad I can still use a phone
Hope they can hear the ringing tone
Maybe I’ll just send them a letter
Let them know I’m feeling better
Hospital stays can be depressing
Every day they change the dressing
Finally told I could go home
Can hardly wait to go and roam
Must not forget to take my pill
Heart attack I read the hospital bill

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
