As We Live We Do Learn
From more than six decades of living of knowledge little I have to show
by Francis Duggan
Of life so little I realize I do know
Though people like me can be found everywhere
There are not many genuises in the big World out there
But life is like a teacher it does seem that way
And from her we do learn a bit every day
That is if we are open to knowledge of such we receive
As we live we do learn on that I believe
Though from our mistakes in life we learn to pay
Life is a great teacher that does seem fair to say
And though some of our mistakes can come at a huge personal cost
No use in lamenting life's opportunities lost
Yet as we live we do learn would you not agree?
At least anyhow that's how it seems to me.
