It Sets Our Dear Hearts Free



Big surprise, this poem's about love Foremost on this old man's mind Old but still a very passionate soul In spite of the passage of time Never realized that in our older years That one only ages physically Our minds, our hearts, our basic souls Remains forever still free Still free to think, to admire, to love Just like in the prime of our life Bodies weaken but minds grow stronger Much more worldly in spite As a younger man I was very insecure Life has a way of changing us Passage of time helps us gather strength To deal with all the negative stuff Still got a bunch of happiness to give Heart's overflowing with glee Really can't imagine a life without love It's what sets our dear hearts free © Jack Ellison 2013

    I love this one, Jack. It's a secret I've known all along...Our hearts never age...I keep telling my daughter that...That's why I feel such a closeness to people who are older than I am...I now..inside...we are the same! Not chipper tonight, but still wanted to drop by to say hello to you, my dear! Hugs

    With all the commotion young ones can make... How to get thru the day is foremost in this oldsters mind... We've got the love here in spades... it just seems to wear me out with time... LOL... This chilly weather has Dragon snoozing at my feet, today... Apparently, Acorn Falls and chilly fall weather is tiring him out... AAAHHH... Amazing peace... Think think I'll have that 2nd cup of coffee...
