It used to be these eyes could see,
But now, dear me, where’s A through Z?
This darker world is hard to take,
What changes I have had to make.
Come on, old eyes, give me a break!
Please lighten up, for goodness sake!
Goodbye, dear car, I’ll miss you so!
It’s difficult to let you go.
But go you must, the time has come
When I admit my driving’s done.
We’ve aged together, my old friend,
Our close relationship must end.
A new lifestyle’s ahead for me,
Less independent, not so free.
For sure this challenge will be met,
No rocking chair can claim me yet!
After all that I’ve been through!
From day one,
Not much fun,
My happy times were all too few.
O’er the years,
Trying hard to not feel blue.
Alone at last,
Forget the past!
It’s not too late to start anew.
