Going Out on a Lim(erick):
1. I recall the past 50 years
with equal parts laughter and tears.
My achievements are measured
in small moments treasured.
I can still get up off my rear.
2. Regrets? There's been more than a few.
At times, I had nary a clue.
Did the best that I could.
Was more lucky than good.
Sounds so trite, I know, but it's true!
3. I earned my bachelor's degree.
Traded beans at the C-B-O-T.
I live my best life.
Cross the globe with my wife.
My grand daughter's smile sets me free.
Freshman year, my friends went to East.
Of my problems, that was the least.
I was really quite small,
hardly noticed at all.
Only now, have my margins increased.
