Gonna live On Forever



Looks like this geezer Will live on forever When I'm out for a stroll Gait's light as a feather Most folks mistake me For a much younger dude They think I'm bout forty Don't want to be rude So they guess around fifty Some sixty or so Certainly don't blame them My age doesn't show I'm proud as a peacock This image I'm showing For a man in my seventies My pride's overflowing Owe it to a life filled with joy Singing happy songs Shooing away nasty clouds Sun shines all day long © Jack Ellison 2013

    Young at heart! Of course you are. So optimistic and confident. I'm eternally glad to read some uplifting work for a very well respectful, handsome and talented poet.

    The good life is achievable for almost everyone... attitude is definitely the key! That may sound a bit altruistic but it goes a long way to a happy life! Thank you Lucilla for your very kind words. Hugs and happy thoughts, Jack xoxox

    They say Dragons and Trolls are the closest to FOREVER people you'll ever find. So you're in the right company... They're loyal, too. They say I looked worn around the edges when they got here... They think, they're the remedy for that! My foot kept me down... Now my little doggie's leg is bothering her... so the usual walks are down... So Grandpa Troll has Dragon doing walkies with my Lab Lizzie in his arms... They both seem to be enjoying it! Can't figure out why the neighbors hide, tho? Really!
