I REMEMBER

I remember 
the first time 

I looked 
in the mirror 

and saw God 
staring back at me 

I smiled and 
said hello 

 

 

TALKING TO AN OLD MAN IN A WAITING ROOM AT DISCOUNT TIRE THIS MORNING

Iím not doing bad
For an old geezer

Life now 
Is just a matter of pain 

And what doctor 
You go to to cure it

Retirement isnít all 
Itís cut out to be

I tell you kid
Never get old 

Iím not saying 
Itís all bad 

I had cancer 
And I think itís gone away

But Iím not as strong 
As I was---my body 

I used to be able 
To work on my cars 

But now I canít 
Even lift a tire 

I tell you kid
Stay young forever
