Life Thoughts

Riga Holidays 048.JPG

Swinging high, swinging low,

life has its ups and downs,

still upon us the sun,

does glow.

Sure would like to find,

a place for some peace of mind.

Quiet times and many dreams,

thinking of new life schemes.

Thoughts racing,

like clouds blown by the wind.

Looking back at images –

wondering where the truth lies,

as time flies by.

Was it all like some dream?

Was it all reality?

Can it be that yesterday has gone?

Today simply races on,

tomorrow still out of sight.

Try as I might –

don’t know what will be coming next.

Standing atop of a hill,

feeling ever so fine.

Misstep tumbling down,

left all alone,

smile turned into a frown,

seems as if all the good times have flown.

Living every day ,

like a child on a swing,

the ups are the best,

but you can’t get them without the downs.

Swinging high and swinging low,

every day turning round.

Hold on to the dreams,

that you believe in.

For in life,

the moment that you come,

swinging in through the door,

you are already a memory,

that gets left behind.

Never forget to leave them laughing,

let them know you care.

Before  life is done with you,

don’t forget to take a bow –

like only you know how.
