The Price

Sitting here together,

waiting to be told,

yet another symptom

that we’re getting old.

Hoping that the news

won’t stick us to the chair

and leave us feeling

well beyond repair.

Where have the days gone

that we didn’t have a worry.

Now everyone

is living life

in a constant hurry.

They don’t appreciate

all that they have got,

instead too busy

complaining about their lot.

The day will come

and they’ll be sitting here,

then they’ll realise

the price they paid

was way too dear.
