Slow Down!


The words in blue are from the song 'Blessed' written by Travon Potts and Brock Walsh
"When I think how life used to be"

Life used to be unending
It stretched on and on and on!
I couldn't see the end of it!
But now it's nearly gone!
When I think how years have passed
In the twinkling of an eye
It seems to me, amazing
That they positively fly!
Christmases, as I recall,
Were a million years apart,
And now one ends and, straight away,
Another seems to start!
Last Wednesday merges with the one
That's seven days ahead!
No sooner do I wake at dawn
Than I'm heading for my bed!
Slow down, slow down, I beg of you!
Please put on the brake!
I'm hurtling straight for the abyss!
Slow down for goodness sake!

(An Acrostic)

Birthdays should aways make us glad!
If only we weren't sometimes sad
Realising that years go past
Too quickly! Every year more fast!
How once we welcomed every one!
Delighting in the birthday fun!
As time goes by we get a shock!
Years tick like a ticking clock!

I know the feeling. The years fly by the older I get.
