It's Not A Forever Thing



If you think life will go on forever Got news for you my dears Thought that too, when I was a young'un Did I get a boot in the rear When all of a sudden reality sets in Hey life's not an infinite fling There's a start, a middle and an ending It's not a forever thing Be that as it may, it's a fabulous run Nothing else comes even close Once we recognize and accept that fact We're able to deal with life's woes The happier you are and more content You'll be much more able to cope With the everyday trials and tribulations That make us happy blokes So take this advice I send you with love Learned during my time on earth It's totally up to each and every one of us Our choice is sadness or mirth © Jack Ellison 2013

    Ah....no, it isn't a forever thing, my dear, but we must not dwell on when it might end. I've been caught in that nightmare and it drains me....Your advice is sage and good...as always! Enjoy the run, my dear! I'm cheering you on!

    Dragons crying again. He wants to live forever and for you, too. Poor fellow. I told him if he quits crying I'll let him and the penguins play under the oscillating sprinkler... in the rain today. And after we'll visit the snow cone hut for goodies.Told him he can make some more good memories. Amazing what makes some people happy... Go figure. They're playing on the plastic ground slidy thing, now... They're easier to please than my college kids... Who just looked at me like I was crazy... LOL
