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....
