Thoughts on Life 2
Youth, time of strength and power
Seems to deminish by the hour
So fast the path of time goes
So swiftly the river of Life flows

What remains is memory
Of what life used to be
I buckle up for the ride
Of Life's remaining tide

What lies ahead no one knows
But inside the feeling grows
That second half is not the unknown curse
But my own fears make it seem worse
That aging comes with loss and hurt

Inside my heart this little bird
Is chirping "all is well. Nothing's lost.
Life goes on, no one knows the cost.
"
It seems wisdom comes with age and time
It's getting hard making this damn thing rhyme
It's not fear of Life, but of the unknown
And my inner treasure that I've grown

Tells me of peace and harmony
And as trouble comes, let it be
My inner self knows best I'm sure
And Time itself will be the cure

Just now at blackbird's song
I've let my fear take me along
On countless times trotten on self-pity avenue
But deep inside I must remain true

To my Inner Self, my Treasure
And fotget all the petty pressure
I am a foolish old girl
I let my mind take a whirl

I know I have finally found Love
With all the Angels from above
Smiling down from heaven on me
So why should fear ever be?
I am happy come what may
I was only having an off-day

Time does fly by quickly. You have echoed the sentiments of most middle age people.

Synopsis
About age and how fast it comes
A Word from the Writer
I have just written this on May 4th 2008, I realized I've become 45 (middle-aged as my friends so very nicely told me) and I wrote something in Dutch (my native language) that goes like youth will never return - how fast time goes. Then I decided I wanted to write it in English and this is what it became, with a little self-mockery because I am basically a happy person. Anyway this is what a pre-menopaused Dutch comes up with :P btw thank Heaven for blackbirds, for me they are wonderful creatures, creating almost angelic songs and making life even more beautiful. Excuse any misspellings or grammar bloopers! And I feel happy again :) I have once again regained my wit Sorry for acting like such a twit
