LOOKING  BACK


IN THE TWILIGHT OF YOUR LIFE
WHEN YOU REFLECT ON WHAT YOU'VE DONE,
ARE YOU PLEASED WITH YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS
AND DID YOU HAVE A LOT OF FUN?

I'M GLAD I TRIED SO MANY THINGS
ALONG THE PATH OF LIFE.
THE FEELING OF FULFILLMENT,
AS A YOUNG GIRL- MOTHER AND WIFE.

I HAD MY DREAMS, ALONG THE WAY,
I'M SURE THAT YOU DID TOO.
LOOKING BACK AT ALL OF THEM,
I MADE A FEW COME TRUE.

WHAT A SHAME, HAD I NOT TRIED,
WHAT A WASTE OF PRECIOUS TIME
HAD I SAT ON THE SIDELINES,LOOKING IN
AT WHAT I COULD HAVE SAID,WAS MINE.

I HAVE A FEW SMALL REGRETS,
BUT SO MUCH MORE LAUGHTER THAN TEARS
I'M GLAD I FOLLOWED ALONG THIS PATH
MY LIFE HAS BEEN FULL OF HAPPY YEARS.
