They say there is a daily record

we all make in the Book of Life

I wonder if that’s true

Some poor angel

recording all the details

of everything I do

the good and the bad

and the boring

and successes, just a few


the lessons of life

haven’t all been easy

I’ve shed a tear or two

remedial classes

in the school of hard knocks

are helping me muddle through


the Daily Record

is written from now

transcripts in memories

all stored up somehow


each day I keep learning

how much I don’t know

I keep moving forward

but the progress is slow


and sometimes at night

I like to review

My Transcripts in memories

and all I’ve been through

    1. Don’t you worry! You will have a wonderful record, especially if you keep writing so we have more to enjoy reading. It seems to me that writing is like craving initials in a tree or cave paintings. A statement that “I was here”. I think Beyonce has a great song by that title.

      Your Angel is probably not as bored and disappointed as mine is. Thanks for the lovely comment!!!

  2. Ha! How true. And I have to review it while I can remember. They can put a man on the moon and sequence the human Genome but can’t figure out a cure for Alzheimers?? Thanks for the comment!
