Twenty-six years is a snap.
Half of my life is a snap.
Snap! Snap! Say it quickly.
Years flash by just like that.
Now, half of my life I’ve been married,
The other half, where did it go?
I remember it all like yesterday.
Yet, it’s half my lifetime ago.
The last twenty-six is a blur,
Made of loving and children and hope,
But, it’s flown by so quickly without me.
It’s recorded mostly in note.
More than half of my life is gone
In a snap, two times twenty-six years.
If the rest is as speedy as that was
I’ll be reflecting only with tears
For all of the times that I wasted
All the occasions I lost in despair.
For my failures, regrets and confusions.
All the times when I was not fully there.
The rest of my life is before me,
All of those days lie ahead.
If God grants me more time to live them,
I’ll count the minutes and hours instead.
