The Usual Complaints

Mewling and puking as a baby child                                  

Having too much to drink when I was wild 

Bumbling my wedding day speech as a groom                

Finding somewhere to live with plenty of room     

Waving goodbye to our children as they wed                                           

Now as years wear on, being alone in my bed


  1. That pretty much sums it up...but each one is a lesson, and with age comes wisdom. Hopefully the fond memories outweigh any regrets. Simply said, you said a lot.

  2. A wonderful little verse that captures the stages of life so well, each with their concerns and complaints. I recall how we used to fuss as children's fingerprints and clutter, and would love to see those little hands present in our houses now! This was lovely, it started my morning with a wistful smile, Robin. Thank you for a very well done Six Sentence Story!

  3. I like the mewling and puking Shakespearean references.
