Fog On The Mountain

Poem by jJO CAREY

Fog on the mountain, no sunshine in the valley
All seems down here when I am
Wishing for things that have all come and gone
As age seems to be speeding up

Can't go back, its way to far
And not too much futher to go
Life cannot go on
This much I do know

We all get to this point one day or the other
And nothing can stop the turning
So do what you can while you can
So that you'll never have to look back

And wish you had done it sooner
Lived it better, done better
Cause when there' fog on the mountain
There never any sunshine in the valley

    Ah, yes...but when that fog finally clears...what a view from our mountaintop! ! I don't look back...but upward, always!(Report)Reply
