I’ve Learned


Ten years old,

I’ve learned how to tie my shoes.

Twenty years old,

I’ve learned how I like my booze.

Thirty years old,

I’ve learned to get up and go to work.

Forty years old,

I’ve learned to appreciate my quirks.

Fifty years old,

I’ve learned my kids are now adults,

Sixty years old,

I’ve learned to ignore the world’s insults.

Seventy years old,

I’ve learned how much a person I can miss.

Eighty years old,

I’ve learned how precious time here is.
