It's Sure Been A Blast



Each one of our precious children Is different and very unique We brought them up in the very same way But they all have different techniques They each look at life very differently Some cynical, some full of fun The fun loving ones are much like me Enjoying each day in the sun Before you know it, the end approaches I'm ready, it's sure been a blast We never know when our number is up So enjoy yourself right to the last Quite philosophical wouldn't you say Taken seven decades of living To understand the real important things Ignoring life's many misgivings So there you have it, my take on life Don't pretended to know-it-all Just passing along some stuff I've learned Bottom line is just have a ball © Jack Ellison 2013

    Hi Jack;; love this poem. I am glad that you have had a blast. Children are all different, just like the fingers on our hands. You might want to check out a poem of mine ( What I Have Learned ). Thanks for sharing this one...... Lucilla

    My son Joey is way too grump-a**. Always a downer when at home... It'll take him a while, but he'll lighten up. It took me a while too. I think he's a control freak... and to him the world is out of control... which drives him nuts... It won't be long before he realizes that we're only along for the ride... Not to drive the car.... Then he'll relax.
