At The Crack Of Dawn



Up bright and early at the crack of dawn Seems that's been my routine forever Don't wanna waste a single damn moment Don't wanna miss a single thing ever Time seems forever when we're youngun's Old age is a bunch of decades away Then all of a sudden it jumps up and bites us Celebrated your 60th birthday today Talk about the years literally flying by Seems like they're in overdrive they do Here's some news you young whipper snappers Soon be waving your young life, adieu Sure didn't start out to write a downer Guess my age is starting to catch up Usually I'm over the top with the happy stuff So back to wagging my tail like a pup! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon's in a tail spin! One son is 22 and may stay at college to work over Christmas... Where did his youth go?... I don't feel any older than 10 years ago... But it's breaking Dragon's heart that one of his two best buddies is leaving the nest... But I'm still NOT getting up at the crack of dawn! I DO enjoy my sleep... Well, I DO get up to walk the dogs, feed the critters, give them fresh (unfrozen) water, ect... AWWW SHUCKS! I actually DO get up at the crack of dawn... Bummer!... LOL
