THE YEARS PASSED BY


The years passed by,

And I

Never noticed,

Where’st they went,

Had no clue,

How swiftly,

How sneakedly,

They flit and flew.


I was just a boy,

A moment just ago,

A babe on my momma’s teat,

Then running through clover,

in bare feet,

Forever feeling that feeling,

These millions moments over.


I worked at jobs

All my life,

I enjoyed ever’ one,

Played sports,

Went to college,

There I found a wife,


Married you ask?

Yes!

Just Yesterday it seems,

like a short but endless dream.

Yesterday, I was the groom,

Of a beautiful Wife,

Gwine on fifty-seven,

Years of our life.


Three kids.

Who?

Me?

You’re kidding.

Had no time for that,

Only minutes passed,

Not hours, days, years,

Raising children’s’ love and tears,

God that was fun!

And still is.


Career,

and a few beer,

Here and there,
