Slowing Up

"It's Just a Thought" – Poems dedicated to my wonderful family who always have given me much love and for which I am most grateful...

When did it happen, I can’t recall
Little chores seem to be not so small
My feet and my hands could move so fast
I was the first one to say, “let’s have a blast”
Now it appears my mind tells me, “go”
But the body tells me, “let’s take it slow”
So I’ll do what I can whenever I can
I’ll gladly take help whenever someone offers a hand
It can’t be my age, I’m still pretty spry
And you know I would never tell a lie
So if now and then I require some help you see
I’ll just accept it, good advice for you and me.
