The best of the rest of me

What good is it to stop and think,
And compare today with my past best?
When Iím sometimes down
With a groan and a frown,
Faced with the reality of what I have left

Once healthy, now achy
Once energized, but now at times,
I just have no vibe
To face the day with joy or pride
Or even courage to continue towards
Godís specified time
For the end of my life

I will flip that switch in my head,
For the lights to come on, so I can see
The truth thatís hidden inside of me
And it is that my past best directly reflects
My capacity to live and experience the best
Of what I now have left

Once doubtful, now hopeful
Still achy, but grateful because I am blessed
With help to face each day
One step at a time
With the strength to continue towards
Godís specified time
For the end of my life

The best of the rest of me is now my aim
As I work and play
And think and relate to others
As I live each day.
