EARLY MORNING MUSINGS
I know so little about life.
Although I've lived in it
for fifty years,
I've never felt in control,
but careened through it,
now and then stepping out into reality.
So many beginnings --
first step, first kiss, first love,
So many second chances -
New school, new job, new home,
A daughter becomes a mother;
the mother watches as her children fly.
Middle age sets in and life changes.
From what I've seen so far
it will change again, but then,
I know so little about life,
although I've lived in it for fifty years.
