Where Was I


Photobucket
another year has passed...i wonder why they pass so fast now
as a child i moaned because they didnt pass fast enough
then suddenly i woke up and my hair was gray...my body creaky
too bad i didnt seem to enjoy life while i was young...where was i

now that i am old and gray...i can see the follies of my mind
i can also see the glories i almost missed...time saved me
maybe if i use the time left to me wisely...i can learn to appreciate
too bad i didnt seem to enjoy life while i was young...where was i

i look back at all the travels and journeys of life  
some i smile at...some i just shudder...others make me cry
but i now realize that it was my life...it made me who i am
too bad i didnt seem to enjoy life while i was young...where was i

i think about how i just seemed to survive...or time passed me by
then i realize...i wasnt alone...so did the rest of the world
there really wasnt time then to watch ourselves grow
too bad i didnt seem to enjoy life while i was young...where was i

we all spent our youth getting educated...then we got married
oh yes...then came the babies...now there are more to support
no wonder we didnt seem to enjoy our lives...we were too busy
too bad i didnt seem to enjoy life while i was young...where was i

all is not lost..now we can enjoy what life is all about
stop to smell the roses...listen to the birds...as well as see them
reap the time given to us as we stroll down the golden path
too bad i didnt seem to enjoy life while i was young...where was i
