Rubbing Bums With Some Famous People



The days just seem to be whizzing by In a month I'll be seventy-eight Seems like just a few years have passed Since going on my very first date Exciting days of discovering new things The world was shiny and new A little bit scary but an absolute blast Disappointments I've had just a few All in all it's been a fabulous journey Stopping at many great ports Wouldn't change a thing even if I could But the journey was way too short Maybe I'll return as a piece of sculpture Observing your every move Perhaps a treasured Stradivarius violin Serenading visitors at the Louvre Even come back as a well worn seat In a popular Hollywood restaurant Rubbing bums with some famous people What more could a simple guy want The days just seem to be whizzing by In a month I'll be seventy-eight © Jack Ellison 2013

    : ) Love your poem, Jack! I'm not surprised by the "full" life you've lived, my friend..with your faith and attitude, your gentle spirit and humor, it's no wonder! People like you never grow old! Blessings and best wishes for many more years!! Love, x Annalise

    I am so very impressed with this masterpiece you have written here my friend! You have delighted me to no end by the incredible nature of this remarkable poem! Seventy-Eight, is that all, your still young my friend (and no I'm not nearly that old, though at times I feel like I am)! I loved reading this amazing piece this evening, Great Work!!

    Time sure does fly... I'll be 61 in October... Though my body feels a wee bit older than that... With my kids at home for the summer... I still feel the adventure of it all... They're doing some crazy things... Joey's girlfriend got fired from her first job. Accidently spilled a pitcher of beer on a customer... 2 days in a row... Wish I could have seen that one! Would have laughed my behind off... Yes, it really happened. But she found a new job the next day... Can we say, sweet young thing. LOL

    Hi Jack; This is a very good way of describing what your life has been. I am glad that you have had a good life. we all have our ups and downs, but I do believe that we have more good things than bad. Thanks for sharing and I hope you celebrate your B.D. in a big way...... Lucilla
