God Has Smiled On Me

I wake up in the mornings
And realize I can see
I know how lucky that I am
‘Cause God has smiled on me.

Oh sure I wear my glasses
As I’ve done for many years
But that’s just part of me now
Since age twelve they’ve been on my ears!

My feet and legs will get me
The places I need to go
Though sometimes with arthritis
I’m walking kind of slow.

It really doesn’t matter
That I can’t run too fast
I’ll be happy as a smiley face
Though slower that I was in the past.

My hair is turning gray now
But then I knew it would
It doesn’t really bother me though
At my age, hey you know it should!

So, I’ll go along my daily path
Thanking God for what I’ve got
I’ll smile and wink on father time
Hoping my mind won’t rot!
