Jim Yerman Poems
Don'T Worry, Be Happy
We live in a world that doesn’t slow down, it’s seems everyone’s in a hurry
Which causes us lots of stress, lots of anxiety, and an abundance of worry.
We worry about money, our health, our children, we worry about being late
We worry about getting older, about our jobs and gaining weight.
I imagine amidst all this hustle, all this bustle, all this hapless hurrying
There are even people out there who worry about worrying!
Worrying can be debilitating, it can be an enemy and a curse
And everyone knows telling someone not to worry, only makes it worse.
We recently attended a beach wedding and it came with a wonderful view
As the happy couple getting married smiled and said I do.
It’s been 25 years, yes a lifetime…one we often like to review
Since in a little church in Dunedin, Deborah and I said I do.
Brenda and Carol are two close friends and this one fact is true
They’ve been together as long as Deborah and I, but have never said I do.
