Still Standing

The house I live in is about a hundred
and two years old. It has lived through
many wars, a great depression, dozens
of recessions and generations of families
walking on it's old wooden floors.

It has seen both the countless days
of joy and tragic days of sorrow that
we sometimes suffer.

When the world sometimes gets me
down, I look at this house.
Yes, still standing after all
these years.

What a wonderful
world it has seen.
