The ways things sneak up on you,
Graduations, high school, college…
Jobs, part-time, full-time, the end of a career…
It seems like they come from nowhere,
One davit’s the hassle of finding a ride,
The next you’re driving,
Then all of sudden people you went to school with
Are having serious health problems or passing on.
These things sneak up on you,
It’s always a shock when the call comes,
Two classmates died over the last two months,
One had a minor stroke,
Another lost a parent, and I’m thinking I should still
Be riding and running like I did as a kid.
Maybe that’s why everything sneaks up on me.
