Life To My Days
“Life To My Days”
Jerry Salley

I wish we all could live at least until we’re ninety
Without any aches and pains or cloudy mind
And I wish everyone could taste the kind of love we dream of finding
And get to see their ship come sailing in at least one time
I’ve been here long enough to know
That ain’t the way it always goes

So if I’m one of those travelers whose journey gets cut short
And leave the ones I leave behind wishing I had more, time
All I can say is I can’t add more days to my life
So I’ll add more life to my days

Today when I get home from work I ain’t jumping on that mower
Gonna grab my boy and his Zebco, that ol yard can wait
And later on tonight I’ll kiss his Mama and I’ll show her
She still gives me butterflies just like on our first date
These moments don’t last long
Seems we blink and then they’re gone

Gonna head on down to Sanibel and spend a week or two this summer
Keep the TV off and wrestle with the kids
Call mama up just to hear her voice and say I love her
Someday I’ll never get that chance again
