A Boomer Poem
I looked around one day and I discovered
Rooms I used rarely were drab and dust-covered
Kids had moved out, my home’s too big for me
This was the first of life-altering things.
Years of the things that we’d once thought as treasures
“Kondo-ing” tips showed they don’t bring me pleasure
I need to right-size to a home right for me:
Second step in my life-altering things.
I want a change. Where can I go, so I feel carefree?
In the midst of all these life-altering things
can I find what inspires me?
Hired a consultant to pore through my possessions
Things I once loved, but no more my obsessions
Donating what others can use more than me:
The third step in my life-altering things.
With house on the market, my next step was daunting
I didn’t know how I’d find the home I was wanting
A place on one level, with Boomers like me:
Had someone made easy this life-altering thing?
First on my list was to find friendly neighbors
Second, that yard work wasn’t one of my labors
And no compromises, just what’s right for me
I didn’t want it to feel too life-altering.
I heard about Windsong and their homes on one level
Where hobbies existed in which I could revel
Where neighbors were friendly – that’s my cup of tea!
Maybe I’ll like all this life-altering…
I went there to visit and was so warmly greeted
Met folks as in the cozy model home I was seated
Felt like I lived there, it’s where I belonged
Life-altering’s easy when you visit Windsong!
Looked through the model home, made my decision
Got to know those who built my new home with precision
Joined a book club, a walking group, and met my new friends.
Life-changing’s easy when the fun never ends.
Now it’s October, and the leaves are all falling
It’s been some time since my life-changes were calling
My home suits my lifestyle, I feel so at ease
Welcome to Windsong – Where Life’s A Breeze!
