Good Life

My Grand “Ole” Clock

My alarm clock woke me every day

For more than fifty years.

I never worried I’d be late,

It took away those fears.

I now find that it’s running slow,

And I just can’t make it hurry.

I should really get another clock.

Then I wouldn’t have to worry.

But Eileen and I are slowing too.

We don’t navigate so quickly,

And we don’t want to be replaced

When we get a little sickly.

So I guess I’ll keep my grand “ole” clock.

It’s become a part of life,

And I know I’ll always keep Eileen,

For she’s still my grand “ole” wife!!
