I Owe It To Cathie

Had a few heartaches Many great joys But above all the clatter Maintained my poise Tried to live life With dignity and grace Wake up each morning A smile on my face Whatever I'm handed Whatever's in store No matter, I'm ready No need for more As I sit and ponder Life through the years Becomes quite obvious Just happy I'm here Blessed with a joyous Outlook on life I owe it to Cathie My darling sweet wife! © Jack Ellison 2012
