"Geordie Counting Days"
Play Geordie poem recital (wav format)

I′m counting the days until I learn to talk
And counting the months until I can walk
I′m counting the days until I leave school
And counting the days playing truant a fool

I′m counting days slowly hoping I find work
And counting sheep sleeping feeling a jerk
I′m counting the hours until I next get fed
And counting the minutes until I go to bed

I′m counting the days until I next get laid
And counting the days until I next get paid
I′m counting the days now until I get wed
And counting memories worried where life′s led

I′m counting the money avoiding endless debt
And counting the pennies so that I won′t regret
Just counting the days while trying to be brave
Counting the days slowly until I reach my grave

The moral here is we should never rush life, time drags when we are young and flies past incredibly fast when we are old? We can not slow time down other than living every day calmly enjoying every literal second and moment we have? No one knows when their last final day may be?
