My life in a nutshell. Or maybe not.

 

ALL ABOUT ME
 
I’m 16, hell on wheels,
just got my drivers license.
I hit the road bag and baggage,
ain’t seen much of my home since.
 
I’m 19 & graduated,
wanting to do what’s right…..
Thought about signing with Uncle Sam,
but I’m not looking for a fight.
 
Instead I’m off to college
looking for my degree,
at 21 I married my sweetheart
knowing she’s in love with me.
 
I’m 21, legal to drink,
though it will never be a habit.
And, when I’ve had a few too many,
I’ll either walk or cab it.
 
At 22, I had a son.
At 24, another.
You just can’t raise a boy alone,
he has to have a brother.
 
By now I’ve hit my stride
and I’ve started my career.
We own a house, we’re doing well,
we live without much fear.
 
For nearly 21 years,
I seldom miss a day,
unless it’s for vacation,
or related to work some way.

Although we’re not really wealthy,
we don’t want for much.
We have a pretty good life
with lots of toys and such.
 
We buy a bigger house,
invest some for the future.
We think we’ve got forever,
but you never know for sure.
 
Time goes by, our boys grow up,
life is like we dreamed.
Then comes the diagnosis
and I’m nothing now, but steamed.
 
She fights a valiant fight,
but it’s one that she can’t win.
Even though we both prayed
time and time again.
 
Life goes on, I wander some,
but nothing seems to fit.
My life was near perfection
now I can hardly get a hit.
 
There’ve been some special ladies,
just not that perfect one.
Not that I was always looking,
sometimes it was just for fun.
 
But, now I’m in my sixty’s
still facing life alone,
so I try online dating,
trying to avoid the phone.
 
Immediately I find her,
could this be my fate?
She just seemed extra special,
even before our first date.

Tonight we’re having dinner,
we’re taking that next step.
It’s been planed for several days,
since then, I’ve hardly slept.
 
This story has no ending,
it hasn’t happened yet,
but for my remaining days
I’ll be as happy as I can get.
