Turn Around


Just to blink,

Half past two,

Toddler years,

They are few.

Turn around once,

Turn around twice,

The wonder years,

They are nice.

Off we go.

School days bring,

Growing up,

Push a swing,

Turn around once,

Turn around twice,

Home of our own,

The spice of life.


Jobs to have,

Bills to pay,

Mom’s or dad’s,

Living ways.

Turn around once.

Turn around twice.

Grandma baking,

A pie to slice.

Hair of gray,

Wrinkles too.

Heart of gold,

Hugs for you.

Turn around young,

Turn around old,

Time goes on,

So, we are told.
