Too Late Now - Poem by Beryl Harrison
I wish I'd looked after my body before it got too old,
I wish when I was told too clean my teeth I'd done as I was told,
I wish I'd taken my codliver oil before it got too late,
before my joints and extremities went past there sell by date.
I wish I'd creamed my face each night before I went to bed,
then it wouldn't look so lived in, it would be smooth and taut instead.
I wish that I had exercised rather than lounging round,
You only notice things like that when gravity pulls things down.
I think I'll turn over a new leaf, do every thing I said,
I think I'll start tomorrow if I can just get out of bed.
