My Energy Has Flown



Much as I'd like to do what I used to At 78, my energy has flown It's really not matter of choice at all The body decides on it's own Oh how I wish I still had the energy As I did just ten years ago Age has a way of deciding for us How far our body can go Must always try to really stay active Retirement years can be long Mental abilities stay almost the same Physically it's a different song Physical exercise is very important To maintain our youthful zest Otherwise the body starts to shut down And memories are all we have left © Jack Ellison 2013

    One of your most touching poems, of all time... Mike understands completely... He said to tell you: he used to jump over the fence with one hand... Now he opens the gate... Not to mention that he needs to finish more and more of my sentences for me... But I find writting words easier than talking... So here I am... Love you all... PS. This is St. Louis... so would you PLEASE call your canadian clipper back... REALLY! Honest! ... LOL
