When your mind wakes up
over your body’s objections
they tend to go
in different directions
like making a call
with a bad connection
looking in a broken mirror
for your reflection

so you give up, and lay down again
and memories come flooding in
while your body rests you remember when
your heart was whole, life had soul
but this is now, not then

so go about your business,
try to do no harm
you never know what a day will bring
you may find other reasons to sing
but when you’re feeling old
and life gets cold
the past can keep you warm
