I miss the way things used to be-
The fun, the events, the people we would see.
Trips to visit our children & grandchildren I miss-
Just to be with them & give them a big kiss!
The dinner parties at our dining room table-
The conversations the laughter when we were able!
The boating with friends to Key West we did take-
Exploring on our own, yes, mistakes we did make!
The New Years parties we always looked forward to-
Dressing up in style, for both me and you!
The fund raising, the volunteering were all part of our day-
We were truly involved & we made time to play!
Projects galore always kept us busy, busy-
Sometimes too much to do would make us dizzy!
Years have passed & it’s time to find a new path-
I hardly recognize our lives with this new assignment we hath!
