My Life has seen many ups and downs
Laughter and tears, smiles and frowns.
Once met a man, so sad,
Told me he was tired of life.
Waking, a sadness that made him sick,
No friends or family at age ninety six.
He'd had it all over the years,
But no wife nor children to shed any tears.
Now at life's end, what did he achieve,
To die all alone, with no one to grieve.
I've never been rich, money passed me by,
Fed my wife and kids, put nothing by.
We are happy, healthy, loving and true.
We look at our children, and they are too
So I look at my life, all it's ups and it's downs.
Laughter and tears, smiles and frowns,
I wake up each morning, just happy to see,
Another day dawning that includes me.
