"That's Life"

Now I never wrote to Santa Clause
But he seemed to know that I'd been good
You see this year I got more presents
Than I ever thought I would.
Yes i even picked up many friends
That I never had before
Yet I lost a few that were hanging around
And now cant find my door.
This is the life we all must face
For indeed it's no sure thing
You win some and loose some, but it's not over
Until you hear the fat lady sing.
Yes the year went by quite readily
And soon will be no more
The many things I planned to accomplish
I'll still be looking for.
Now I never made no resolutions
For it doesn't work for me
I just try to do my very best
And in the end I'll look and see.
Yes my Christmas was very special
And once again because of friends
It matters not how a year starts out
The main thing is how it ends.
Now G.G. my cat was excited too
with the bed that she got
She like gifts the same as me and you
But to please don't take a lot.
Well the New Year is upon us
And what it'll bring we do not know
Yet I for one am hoping that
It will go a little more slow!
