Tammy & Mom

We begin as mere babes naive yet aware

Soaking in life without ne’er a care.

We grow to be tweens and then we all seem

To struggle with everything about this life’s scene.

From there we grow into young women and men,

High school proms, driver’s licenses and college exams.

It’s then we think that we got it made

College, a license, freedom no longer stayed.

Then life kicks us around a bit here and there.

We learn with hard knocks sometimes life doesn’t feel fair.

Eventually we find a career or a job —

And if we’re real lucky sometimes even a heart throb.

And that’s when the tough really get going

Juggling work and family — responsibilities overflowing.

The gray hairs begin and we can’t understand why.

We still feel so young, so cover them we try.

Eventually there’s just too many to cover

We give in to Mother Nature and that’s when we discover

Life is a journey we wish we knew when we were young

How to take in each moment and cherish the fun.

Because before we turn ’round it’s all in the past

But that’s what we call “change” and it goes way too fast.
