before you know it …

a week vanishes just like this;
and another week just like that;
another month, another year;
before you know it, January is here.
you wake up, you smell twenty;
sun is shining, time is plenty;
as the years go by, life gets funny;
before you know it, you have hit thirty.
you laugh, you cry;
you stumble, you fly;
you love, you hate;
you screw up, you recuperate;
and soon or later, you embrace fifty;
before you know it, you’re old and groggy;
your life may taste like a sour milk;
before you know it, you cannot blink.
and finally your grave is dug;
you may be sleeping like a stray dog.
