When We Tweak Our Life A Bit

Updated on February 10, 2012

One More Try

Life is definitely a surprise

Sometimes right between the eyes

Attempting to do something right and it comes out all wrong

Often I try to sing a song and it only makes the neighbors dog howl

I haven't given up and thrown in the towel

Just walked down the street for some exercise

Losing some weight and feeling great

Then I tripped on a rock

Twisted an ankle and fell to the ground

Sitting on my butt looking up

Seeing a white dove in the trees

It flew away as soon as it was spotted

Lifting myself to my feet

Walking and limping at the same time

This day keeps getting better

The sun that was out now went in

The sky turned dark and it started to rain

I got all wet and forgot about my pain

I seen a stray cat that I went to pat

The cat hissed and clawed at me

Giving me a scratch on my arm

I said oh darn

I really didn't need that

So I went home and got to my door

The stray cat was at my feet

Purred and rubbed against me looking for something to eat

The fluffy little cat now comes by every day

To cheer me up when life is rough

She stays until I laugh

Then she leaves and goes chasing a mouse

Life is not what it seems it is better than we could imagine

Happiness is found in the strangest of friends

The end
