I roll out of bed the same every day,
To the sound of my alarm clock, usually anyway.
I get ready, then say goodbye to mom and dad,
Then to my brothers, but they usually get mad.
I get in my car and go to school to be a "winner",
Knowing in eight hours I will be home for dinner.
I come home, I eat, I spend time with my family,
Then I go to bed, waiting for my life to repeat.
I wake up next morning the same story goes,
I say "I love you", a familier voice echoes.
But I soon realize as I am driving detered,
That my days with my family are somewhat numbered,
They are all I have known in my 18 year affair,
Though soon, inevitably, I will no longer be there.
I never had thought that any of this could end,
I thought life was a repeating loop I could endlessly spend.
But it's not, and I know every good thing has to stop,
But it makes me appreciate the ones that I've got.
And as I thak my blessings to the big man above,
I think of how awsome it is having those that I love.
