Slipping Away


Yesterday was September 17th, 2021. I turned 81 years old on that date. I sat eating my cake and was disappointed there were so many people missing. So, I tried to think about all those years past and what did I accomplish. Couldn't come up with an answer so maybe the better way to explain is by simply saying there was a time when I thought I'd always have tomorrow, but that wasn't true because...


Precious Time Keeps Slipping Away

There was a time I felt no fear

and a time when I learned to shed a tear.

There was a time when I thought I'd never fail

and there was a time I should have made that call.

There was a time I made so many mistakes

and a time when I was taught what it takes.

There was a time I didn't even hear

and a time when the answers were so near.

There was a time I caused others so much pain

and a time I realized I was the one to blame.

There was a time I just sat down and thought

and a time I knew what that pain brought.

Do I have enough time to make up what I lost,

and time for me to understand what it cost?

Do I have enough time to start all over again?

Can I see the difference between now and then?

So time comes and time goes, that's quite clear.

Can I now create memories to forever hold dear?

Do I have time to open my eyes and look all about,

gather up my courage and take one more

Large, bright green leaves have many perky, little yellow, daisylike flowers peering forth all summer long. It is a member of the daisy family.
Purple Coneflower
Native American Indians are said to have used this plant for more medicinal purposes than any other plant group.
The Value of White Flowers
White flowers match any other colors of flowers and therefore help blend flowerbeds, making them more pleasing to the eye.
