Adages For Any Age - Poem by Joseph Anderson
And I quote;
My friend has often told me,
Though she bears a heavy load;
'Just do the things you have to do
And get on down the road'.
If you notice on'life's galloping horse'
That your path becomes a blur;
Just slow your steed to a slower speed,
Where mistakes won't occur.
If your road gets steep and rocky,
Stop, and take another look;
Perhaps, you'll find a way to 'rip
That page right from your book'.
'What you have and what you get
Should serve until life ends',
But anything you might acquire
Will not replace your friends.
I think on things she told me,
When I face some daily plight.
Now, in my waning years, I know,
She's right! By gosh, she's right.
