I’ve seen many men come and go
and women with children in tow
four generations or maybe more
haven’t kept count, head’s a bit sore
years turn to decades far too fast
seems everything is in the past
but I enjoy my days one at the time
you see, I don’t worry, nickel or dime
I greet every sunrise with grateful mind
to see a new day is a gift of a kind
I use it well, bless you, to leave my mark
at night fall I’m not afraid of the dark
when I go to rest in the moonlit night
my mind is at peace and filled with light.
