That's The Way It Is
It was hard for me to realize
The clock is ticking my life away
But lately I've become more aware
My time is growing shorter each day.
It's easy to recall old memories
But hard to remember yesterday
I guess God must have his reasons
For taking my short memory away.
I'm sitting here trying to remember
What this poem I'm writing is about
But listening to the clock ticking
My remembering I seriously doubt.
That's the way it is....
