Living Well

Written by: Joyce Johnson

I'm living in my golden years
And riding on the gravy train.
I am one of the lucky ones
Who lived the sweet life to attain.

The first two decades of my life
I was preparing for the rest of it.
After raising kids and working too,
I'm retired and having fun a bit.

Allthough my children do insist
I wear call bell around my neck,
And always carry my cell phone,
I forget I'm old.. so what the heck!

I owe no one, no one owes me.
I welcome every day I see.

I wrote on this theme for Carol's contest and then decided to with draw from contest since it does not fit that form.
