Time passes so very fast. It seems like I wrote this just yesterday for my son's 21st. birthday.

Still My Baby

Still My Baby

A major stone was turned this year,
Our son became 21.
We celebrated and partied well.
Enjoyed him having fun.

He got advice from everyone.
The oldsters and the young.
“You should do this.”
“You shouldn’t do that.”
“Your life has just begun.”

“Don’t take those wooden nickels.”
“Work hard and you’ll succeed.”
“Helmet your soldier in battle.”
“Buy only what ya need.”

The best advice, from Uncle Joe
Came in reflective light,
“Live your life the way YOU want.”
“Keep your dreams in constant sight.”

“You’ll think life has no limits.
You’ll forever be 21, but…
You’ll blink your eyes, and turn your head
And your 40th year is done.”

“Each person is given a block of time
Their ‘equal gift’ in life.
Use yours well, and wisely
Don’t waste it on worry and strife.”

So, live your life the way YOU want
Let your imagination take flight.
Go after your goal. Reach for the stars.
And keep your dreams in constant sight!

Joyce J. Schuler
August 1994


21St, Birthday, Son
