Are We Nearly There Yet

are-we-nearly-there-yet

Remember when your kids were young

And you went out in the car.

They had that famous battle cry

before you’d gone too far.

“Are we nearly there yet?”


I think they had a timer

set up inside their head.

And every 15 minutes

this is what they said.

“Are we nearly there yet?”


You try to keep them all amused

by playing different games.

But after every game you play

the questions still the same.

“Are we nearly there yet?”


Those feelings of impatience

don’t stop as we grow old.

When we feel those stresses building

the same question will unfold.

“Am I nearly there yet?”


There is light at the end of the tunnel

we say to give us strength.

The only thing we don’t know

is what’s the tunnels length

“Am I nearly there yet?”


But as each journey finishes

and we say yes that’s me there.

another one is starting

with the same question for to bear.

“Am I nearly yet?”
