I Know Where I'm Goin'

If I'm movin' I know where I'm goin' those are the lessons of my life - times I've seen, me and my wife, down that road together no matter what the weather many a day, some filled with strife - but still I keep on movin' 'cause when I'm movin' I know where I'm goin' that's been my life. For three score and 10 plus a few more thrown in that's all I been doin' just keep'n on movin' 'cause when I'm movin' I know where I'm goin' yes sir, that's been my life. I've seen good days and bad some that truly were sad but through it all I kept on movin' cause when I'm movin' I know where I'm goin' that's been my life. There's been days of tears and some smiles too it's easier to smile and causes less wrinkles too I look at the good side 'cause life has a flip one and there's nothing to see on the dark side, but an unhappy me. So why should I choose to be sad in life when I got a smilin', good natured wife. The roads not all rocky the paths not all rough all you got to do is hang mean and tough. That's why I keep on movin' 'cause when I'm movin' I know where I'm goin' that's been my life. It's not so hard to be happy no, not when you're me, just keep on smilin' as I keep on movin' 'cause when I'm movin' I know where I'm goin' and that's been my life. Some folks ask me how long my life will be tell 'em I have no idea 'cause that's for God to see, all I do is keep on movin'.. 'cause when I'm movin' I know where I'm goin'.... ...and that's been my life.

    You should know what shreddies are, you are old enough! I am one year younger so we are in the same league. By the way, do you mind telling me where you live? I am about a half hour from Niagara Falls.

    Dear Richard, I hope your wife reads all your sweet verses. This one really goes ahead and overcomes all obstacles. I love our visits and gather you can't access soup mail either so we will have ou little conversations anyway. I'm about the same age as you if I gather rightly from this poem of yours and whatever age we are, it's all in the head and that's ok with me!
