What to do next?

Tiny and fragile. A little hand to hold. Sooner or later, we all will get old.

“What to do next?”

Young minds, and young hearts. Consumed by play. Oh, how do we put off the adolescent days?

“What to do next?”

They’re finally here! Let’s open a beer! What’s that drug? Should I feel fear?

“What to do next?”

Bombarded with questions. Irritated minds. Fresh out of college, but the future is blind.

“What to do next?”

A brand new start. Nobody knows the past. Get down to work, or the boss will kick your ass.

“What to do next?”

A place of your own. This one will do. And one more thing! I love you.

“What to do next?”

Is it time? It’s time. Oh, what a joy! Let’s wait, don’t tell! Is it a girl, or a boy?

“What to do next?”

Teaching and guiding. Are they ever smart! There is no way they’ll ever grow up to throw darts!

“What to do next?”

High in high school, isn’t that how it is? I never thought that would be my kids.

“What to do next?”

Off to college, they’ve finally found their way. Let’s hope they are prepared for what they have to pay.

“What to do next?”

It’s been a week, and still no call. Should we do it? We’re the parents, after all.

“What to do next?”

Their first job! Now we can relax. They’ll make their own money, and pay their own tax.

“What to do next?”

It’s about time! The kids came to visit. They brought their partners. They’re quite exquisite.

“What to do next?”

We’re finally retired! That’s pretty crazy. Remember when our parents used to call us lazy!

“What to do next?”

Hospital calling. It’s bad news they say. We need you to come here and meet us today.

“What to do next?”

They say that it’s serious, they say that I’m delirious. Should I be furious, I’m sure we can cure this.

“What to do next?”

Feeling alright, as the weeks pass. But the family, they’re like broken glass.

“What to do next?”

It’s come, it’s time. You’ll always be mine. Please stop crying. You’ll all be fine.

“What to do next?”

What is life without you, without me, without family? I know you’ll miss my smile, but be patient, and again, you’ll see.

“What to do next?”

When the grieving is done, and the battle has been won, there is only one thing that will lead you back to the fun: “What to do next?”
