Life Was A Song You Would Sing
Life was a song you would sing
In your warm, beautiful way,
From the moment you first drew breath
Until your last mortal day.
Every morning you would rise,
Filled with hope, just as a bird,
And with an optimistic mind,
Make your way through the world.
Always a spring in your step,
You would walk, long and tall,
Singing a quiet song in your heart
Of life's joys, great and small.
There were times sorrow came,
When your heart yearned for peace,
But even then, not for one day
Did your melody cease.
Full eighty-seven years ...
Things We Used To Do
Remember the things we used to do?
Like the conker I'd slip into your shoe,
Only to find it back in mine...
Sometimes I'd like to turn back time
And have all the nonchalance of youth,
To those days when in truth
We had nothing more pressing to do
Than hide a conker in a shoe.
