Leaves turn – time to go
Slowly green morphs to yellow
A new tomorrow
Seasons come and go
Thanks for the wonderful show
Something new to know
I hear the truck roar
Destruction’s outside my door
But trash is no more
As a child I dreamed to see –
The world through older eyes.
Imagine all that I’ll see –
Growing smart, growing wise.
Growing older, wished to see –
A world through younger eyes.
Think of all the things I’ll see –
Some are smiles, some are cries.
Then I thought I should see-
The world through others eyes.
Into hearts and minds I’ll see –
All the truths, all the lies.
Now I’ve grown and I can see –
A world through my own eyes.
Always open now I see –
A world that’s all surprise.
If life begins at birth we know of no tomorrows.
If life begins at ten we know of no ends.
If life begins at twenty there’s still time a plenty.
If life begins at thirty it’s time to get flirty.
If life begins at forty it’s time to get naughty.
If life begins at fifty it’s getting kind of iffy.
If life begins at sixty, then have yourself a ball.
If life begins at seventy you had no life at all.
If life begins at eighty than you better take it easy.
If life begins at ninety then better you than me.
If life begins at a century it’s a life most never see.
Every days a surprise, every tomorrow’s a bet.
It doesn’t matter where you start, it’s how far you get.
