MY DAY – MY WAY by Shelley Edwards


Another sleepless night , it occurs almost every night
How much more, can one do, than to switch off the light
To sleep, just one night, the whole night through
I know I shouldn’t moan, well I am, wouldn’t you

When I wake up in my bed,
I’ve got a pain in my head
I also have a pain in my neck,
Here we go another day, Oh heck.!

I normally have a struggle to get to my feet
Then there’s muscle spasms,cramps in my legs, oh what a treat
I put one foot in front of the other , gingerly I go
With an ooh and an ahh and a oh, oh oh no!

Now it’s just a short distance, to go to the loo.
It surely can’t be that hard, for me to do!!
Sometime it is, and sometimes it’s not.!
Who would be me, I certainly, would not !!!

Here I am in the bathroom , you think it would be easy
To have a wash and get dressed, it must be easy peasey
It’s not though, when you’re finding it hard to stand,
It’s even much harder, when you’ve got two shaking hands
That’s all done,,! it’s taken me a long time in there
Just to make up and brush my hair, who would really care
If I look like a mess, it won’t matter , as I’m not going out,!
Why on earth, did I dress?, because I’m only lounging about

What shall I do with my time, at home today
There’s so much to do, no time for making hay
There’s the washing and the hoovering to do
Tidy and make the home look fresh & new
Thinking about it, makes me really tired
If you’d like to come and do it for me, You’re hired !

So it’s onwards and upwards, that’s what I say
As for my tremor , Well it’s obviously here to stay
So I have no choice but to cope with it each & every day’
It really does get on my nerves and makes me really swear
But heh ! I should have got used to it ! I’ve had it now for years.!!

I find my days , are all the same
Such is life! There is no one to blame?
So I’m going to get on with it, day by day
And I’m going to do it MY WAY!!! – Today
