Still Standing

Over the hill
and several mountains
drug up a creek or two
til getting from one end of
the day to the other
is about all that I can do

I can remember
being young and strong
and good for something or other
now I guess
the joke’s on me,
I’m hardly worth the bother

But if I were the president
or a lottery millionaire
I couldn’t take the grief away
from people for whom I care
I can’t learn the lessons again for them
we all have to live the hard parts
I only hope the fact that I’m still standing
might help to give them heart
