A Fabulous Ride



Middle of summer, time flies by so fast Before you know it, summer has passed Ever forward the cycle goes on Around and around from dawn to dawn Not enough time to catch our breath Before you know it there's little time left Time to do all the things we intended Must be satisfied with things half ended A fact of life we have good intentions Projects not done too many to mention We do our best in the time we're given But often in other directions we're driven All in all we can look back with pride The journey was fun t'was a fabulous ride Middle of summer, time flies by so fast All things considered, my life's been a blast © Jack Ellison 2013

    When I read this one to Dragon he had tears in his eyes as he looked at me and decided to let me have a ride... Geesh it Dragon... It's only gray hair! I'm not dead yet... But I'd love the ride... Giddy Up! Up Up and Away!...

    Gray hair can indicate you're nearing the end of the journey... found that's a bunch of bull crap. Still got a long way to go! Yee haw! Have a souper day! Jake xoxox

    Your comments are much appreciated this morning my friend! BTW I'm also known as Jake in my inner circle of friends. I have also written a few songs in my day. Was actually part of a folk group in the 60s... went on to produce an album and a couple of singles. Didn't make much money but we has a blast! Have a good day my friend... Jake
