And my Momma would bathe me in the kitchen sink.
But then I grew up and switched to high heels
While my paycheck paid for my new Chevy wheels.
Those were the "Dawning" years...the beginning of life
Before I got busy becoming a mother and wife.
Those carefree years went by much too fast
And before I knew it - they became just part of my past.
But now it's my twilight years and my shoes are black
And when I walk to the market, I huff 'n puff my way back;
So it's perfectly obvious that my youth has been spent
Because my "get up and go" has "got up and went."
So I get up each morning, and just to sharpen my wits...
I pick up the paper and read the "Obits",
Then if my name isn't there - I know I'm not dead;
So I take off my bunny slippers - and hop back in bed.
The following is an Inscription on a clock in Chester Cathedral:
-Ages Of Man-
"When, as a child, I laughed and wept. Time crept.
When, as a youth, I dreamed and talked. Time Walked.
When I became a full-grown man, Time ran.
And later, as I older grew, Time flew.
Soon I shall find while traveling on, Time gone.
Will God have saved my soul by then?
