What fun we had




Time, what a tease you are
Speeding like a racing car
Going the quickest at the end
As slowly I homeward wend

Now I tick my long bucket list
Recalling all the girls I've kissed
Who was best? I just don't recall
To be fair I loved them all

There was Sue who danced a lot
But best kisser was Charlotte
There were many Ellen's in my life
But just one Jane to cause me strife

The funny one was sporty Joan
Claire was always on her phone
Prudence she was quite a flirt
Sandra would always swirl her skirt

Can it be true I knew all these?
I've been busy as the bees
Just who cares who was the best?
But lay me down to have a rest 

O time! What fun we have had
The ying and yang of good and bad
Enjoy your life while you can still
While I live mine with dear wife Jill

  2. Ha, I suppose one cannot help looking back through through time at all of those old loves! Human nature, I think, to reflect...even if one is happy with the present!

  9. Love the racing car as it matched the activities of the pre-wed (?) male voice--though I suppose the voice would also be female. I wonder how Jill feels about both the joy and the relief in this very humorous poem?!

  11. I loved the ending. Really time is such a tease, speeding like a racing car. A saccharine poem that made me smile :)

  12. Smiling all the way through - time, what a flirt she is, indeed, speeding us off just when we grow wise enough to really know how to live! LOL.

  15. Outstanding! I think looking back helps us look forward with more ease than had we done nothing in our youth.
    You always pen the best reminders of life well lived

  16. What a delight. Time definitely travels by faster than we can check off our bucket list items. I've even been adding some, but that's what keeps us all going....and am enjoying them with my hubby.

  17. Old Egg,

    You have most certainly no squandered time nor its opportunities..That is what life is about; living and then reviewing the incredible moments!!
