Play For Keeps

1

all in play               for keeps                                       roll the dice

sometimes you win       sometimes you don't              take a chance

dance to the music        the music only you hear         sing your song

roar like a lion               howl like a coyote                sprinkle it with love

or sparkling stars      gathered on a starry night     remember your mommy

and your daddy             play for keeps                        make it count

you only have so much time        when you look at the big picture

                                                                                                 it ain't long

we are but fire flies          sparking off and on               in the forest clearing

fairy dust shimmers         the path is lit                         we have but to follow

pick up your hand            the cards are dealt                   no two hands alike

bounce the ball                 pick up the jacks                      or pick up sticks

board games                     pin the tail on the donkey         blindman's bluff

the day comes to an end     children gather                     red rover/red rover

life is a game or a stage play         from the first act to the last        play for keeps

Note:  Life does seem like a game, or stage play.  What's it all about Alphie?  Still we continue,
get up each morning, grab the to-do list, and follow through.  Evening comes, we lie down to rest, knowing it is all to be done again tomorrow.  And then it is over.....
