My Heaven Into My Hell

I'm a foodie
Always was
When I was young
That wasn't a problem
I played a lot of basketball
Then softball
Even played in a volleyball league
But as you get older
Things change
When I was young
I worked at a restaurant
I was a curb waiter
I would run to each car
Carrying a tray
At a sprint
A waitress there
Asked to watch me eat
Told me she had never seen
Who enjoyed food as much
As I did
That was when I was young
When I was young
My first wife couldn't cook
She tried
She failed
She did other things well
Very well
Then we age
I grew up
Basketball changed
I stopped playing
Couldn't find opponents
On the tennis courts
Then divorce
I fell in love with a cook
Didn't know it when
I fell in love
Suddenly I was in heaven
She loved
That I loved food
She did too
For over thirty years
I've been her Guinea pig
She is the best cook
In the world
My life is more sedate
Than it was
I got fat
Then came the one word
Every foodie dreads
The diagnosis
I'm barely over the line
But I am
So I must make changes
I'm not dealing with it well
That one word
Has changed my heaven
To my hell
