The Past and Prizes

By Walt Perryman

I have been around a long time, it is safe to say,
And I have made many friends along the way!

There is some good and bad getting as old as me,
There is not much in this world like it used to be!

I have had many loved ones to die along the way.
I often wonder why the Lord has allowed me to stay.

Each morning when the sun begins its morning rise,
I realize I am blessed with another Heavenly prize.

Instead of living in yesterday, I will enjoy and relax.
And I shall live my today’s Heavenly prize to the max.

I did not write this to make anyone sad in any way,
I wrote it to help you to not waste your prize today.
