My oh my, how we fly
From day of birth through good-bye
But, still, we wonder why
My oh my, what is this life
Is it about husband and wife
A child or two
Or single in lieu
Or perhaps it cuts like a knife
My oh my, the days slip away
We pray for three seasons to stay
Time can be a snake
Age can take a break
Preferring to go out and play
My oh my, I am truly blessed
Life is being good, I confess
No longer at work
Not married to a jerk
Family, friends and a cat at my chest
My oh my, how we soar and fly
With a warrior’s battle cry
No tears to shed
No regrets or dread
We live life as our future stands by

Well done, Mary. Even in these crazy times, life is pretty good.
It is, Dan. Like having the choice between being upright or sleeping in. 😏
Maddie likes to leave for our walk at 7:15. I get out of bed on her schedule 🙂
Ha! With the auto feeder, I now wake up to Gibbs sleeping on the other side of the bed and I have to push him off when I’m up and ready to make it. He gives me the same look that I used to give him at 4 am. Payback of sorts.
Haha. Maybe I can get a robot to walk Maddie. Actually, I need the walk more than she does.
Wonderful poetry, Mary. You described life rather simply yet beautifully.
Thanks Maggie. Life is good!
I loved this poem!! Good to know that you are relishing life!!
Oh yes, absolutely. The good in life always outweighs the bad.
Great poem! You bring out the best things in life we appreciate more as time passes. Three cheers for NOT being married to a jerk, a cat at your chest (or on my lap) and going out to play!
I love playing, JoAnna, whether it’s on my bike or sharing time with friends and family. I feel blessed in that regard.
Well expressed Mary. I love it.🤗
Thanks Cheryl ❤
I felt that one! “How we soar and fly!!” Up, up, and away 😊
I think you need a cape or wings!
That was lovely and bittersweet and true, and I think you should get 5 stars from everyone on that one!
Thanks for the 5-star kudos, Joey! I never know if poetry is going to feed the readers, so I’m glad it did for you. 🙂
