In times gone by I used to wake up with a smile,
bound out of bed and run to the coffee maker.
In times gone by I used to have the energy to
tickle my son and smother him with kisses upon
In times gone by I was the one that
all my friends could depend on –
I was their “rock” and I liked being
the person that made a difference
in their lives –
not needing anything
In times gone by I was understood,
not having to explain myself
I used to walk 10 miles and
10 miles more – I used to tell my
body what to do….
There was never any limitations
far I went
hard I pushed
long I endured
freely I survived
in times gone by….
