All Too Soon It's Gone



The more we experience real romance The more our life has reason It's why we're here, it's why we were born It matters not the season Whether winter, spring, summer or fall As we sing old nature's song We must make the best of what we have Coz all too soon it's gone Our simple life goes by far too quickly Make the most of every moment To live, to love, to feel the enchantment Reaching our day of atonement © Jack Ellison 2013

    Penned like a man who's seasons of life have gloried in days enchanted, never forgetting those where luster lacked determined to never go back. That's our Jack :-) deeply touched by your wisdom once again.

    Love is so worth every second of life! I hope my wife and I don't pass away anytime soon so we can enjoy our love for as long as possible! I try to make the most of everyday of my life as it is all too precious, my daughter thinks I'm the most romantic person in the world...that would be taking it too far, but I am a romantic, so this poem makes total sense to me! My family has a lot of fun in life, we stop to smell the roses all the time! Thank you for this awesome poem my friend! Great Work!!

    WHOOOOOOOOOOA!!!!! You sure caught my attention this time, my dear friend Drake!!! Not often if ever, (well maybe Russell!) another male of the species has said those things to me! I am truly overwhelmed by how our friendship has evolved! I find it hard saying, "I love you" to another male but here goes... I friggin love you man! LOL

    Dragon says he's going to take that to heart... He put up a picture of Cathie... He has a crush on her sight unseen... But Don't worry... He drew one himself... Then he put it up on his cave wall... He was admiring his work when it went up in smoke.... OOOPPPS! Now we've learned something about cave people... They must have had Dragons... or why else would they finger paint on their walls... Rock walls don't burn... Get it?... LOL... PS. He wants to bedazzle his cave wall... An abstract of both Cathie and Jack done in bedazzles... Will let you know how that turns out...
