Have You Ever Thought Of - Poem by Francis Duggan

Have you ever thought of good times that used to be
Of when you were younger happy and fancy free
Till worries of married life and raising children of your happiness did take toll
There are some things in life way beyond our control
In your early fifties your children now parents yet not all well in your life
Alone in your one bedroom flat and divorced from your wife
Your only friends pub mates your only joy football
And little else happening in your life at all
At least twenty years past your physical prime
And clearly you do look far the worst for time
Age lines on your face and your balding head gray
Time never does wait for anyone as some do say
You are not unusual people like you everywhere
In cities and towns in the big World out there.
