Don’t Blink.

I turned on the evening news
Saw a old man being interviewed
Turning a hundred and two today
Asked him what’s the secret to life
He looked up from his old pipe
Laughed and said “All I can say is”

Don’t blink
Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you’re twenty-five
and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife

j11Don’t blink
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your “better half”
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
So don’t blink

I was glued to my tv when it looked like he looked at me and said
“Best start putting first things first.”
Cause when your hourglass
runs out of sand
You can’t flip it over and start again
Take every breathe
God gives you for what it’s worth

Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think   J on train
