Let’s Pretend

Let’s pretend that we are pretty.

Let’s pretend we’re rich and thin.

Let’s pretend that we are lovable

and have one good, dear Friend.

Let’s pretend that we can cope

with things (like glasses, keys and mask.

And if we need a bit of help,

there’s someone we can ask).

Let’s pretend that we are witty,

wise and thoughtful, good and kind.

(And though we are forgetful,

we still haven’t lost our mind).

Let’s pretend that we have learned some things

through all our aging years.

Let’s pretend our lives are beautiful

with laughter more than tears.

Let’s pretend.
