There Comes A Time - Poem by Jim Boone

If one lives long enough
To enter the sage-stage
Of life on the planet Earth
When physical illnesses
And mental stillness will
Have to be dealt with.

Somebody knows the troubles
We all have seen/experienced,
And nobody, if they are smart,
Not in the rehab business, or
Honest on any level, cares,
Except a friend and family.

That’s life, that’s what the song says:

In most cases, old/old acquaintances
Should be forgot. Themes to an old
Times cadence get in the way of the
here and now, and that’s what longevity
Is all about: Alphie..............

With a lot of acquaintances and a friend
Or two, if we’re still here, at an advanced
Age, there is still a place and a purpose
For us, so slow down, don’t be movin’
Too fast, but keep on going at your
Own pace, until there comes a time
To depart Mr. or Ms. Bones and
Listen to a Soul/Spirit “Yee-haw”!

“In that great getting’ up morning,
Halle lieu, halle lieu” ... somebody
Say amen. “Amen! ! ! Amen! ! ! ”
