G'day Mate



Have you ever had your socks knocked off It happened to me today After thirty long years a sweetie from the past Emerged and blew me away She's been out my life for a long long while But never been out of my heart One of those friends you remember forever Wish we never did part Happenings in our life will dictate the path We really don't have a say But what always remains are the memories With us till our dying day Her name is Liz but I called her Elizabeth Very regal much like a Queen There aren't any words to describe her beauty Such beauty is rarely seen A real sweetie from the land down under A true Aussie all the way With that Aussie charm, that inner beauty Once more, she's blown me away G'day Mate! © Jack Ellison 2013

    She WILL hear it. She's not a member of the Soup but I believe she can still view it! Thanks for your sweet words Miss Laura! Hugs, Jack xoxoxox

    Dragon doesn't understand why you'd let her hit you... Much less knock your socks off... No Dragon! That's not what Jack means... and you don't need to go protect him, either... He's fine! Silly Dragon! And she's not a Dragon, that she can blow him away... Yes, the wind got his sails... but not in the way you're thinking... Questions! Questions! You'd think he'd catch on... Really! LOL
