I’m Me! Can’t you see?

Do not forget who I was –

Who I am!

I woke up in the womb

Then moved to a pram!

I learned how to toddle

Then stumble

Then walk

Then, as my parents found out

I learned how to talk…

And talk!

I laughed in the sunshine

Made daisy chains too

Does anyone recognize

This person in you?

In teenage years

There came the drama

As my parents tried to make me

The new Dalai Lama!

Rebel, Rebel!

As Bowie once said

And I did for a while…

‘Til, I got kicked up to bed!

Later, I found love

Had a few kids too

Does anyone recognize

This person in you?

Then, I got a job

Built a house

Built a home

Then, the kids flew the coup

And left us all alone 😔

But, we discovered the sun!

In much warmer climates

And, it’s got to be said

We had wonderful times! 😆

Went on a few cruises

Made some good friends too

Does anyone recognize

This person in you?

But one rainy day

In a mirror – full length

We saw two old fossils

Lacking sunshine & strength

Surely, I thought,

that can’t be us

They look like they’ve both

Been hit by a bus! 😆

And now, I don’t know them

Not one little bit!

And, often, I pee

Just where I sit!

I’m back to a baby

I don’t know a thing!

Although, I do like to boogie

When I hear someone sing! 🤗

But, I know what you’re thinking

I would be too!

You’re hoping you don’t

see this person in you!

But, you don’t know, you see

Life can play a cruel game

Take all that you were

And render it lame

So, if you should see me

Please try to be kind

I’m just lost and confused

Somewhere in my mind

Please take my frail hand

And sing an old song

And through time I shall dance

Back to where I belong…
