Sad And Happy



Usually feeling very upbeat and happy But even clowns have their days Probably brought on by the Christmas season For those old days we pine away Nostalgically recalling how it used to be A young family just starting out Sadly those happy days are gone forever Acknowledging what life's all about Really do wish I could live forever How sad to have to say goodbye To all our friend and the happy memories Remembering, it's hard not to cry So very sorry, didn't mean this to be sad The holiday season can do this to me As I remember all those great Christmas' Past With good friends and dear family <3 <3 <3 © Jack Ellison 2013

    There will be sadness Jack; no one can deny you that. But you bring out the happiness in others so well that I can only say, that while I'm not worried about you staying down, I am here for when you are ;)

    My Dad's in the hospital to unclog his arteries today... We need to never stop seeing the great things around us, as we dwell on the past. Remember, you are making someone else's memories NOW! They can be just as beautiful as your old memories... If you can't find things to do... go read Christmas stories... like 'The night before Christmas' in a childrens' hospital. That reminds us what blessings we do have. When we cross we'll have old times and family! Don't waste what you have here... now.

    I know exactly what you mean my friend! I sometimes get into that funk whenever I think of old friends and lost friends and family that have deceased, it saddens me! I really enjoyed reading this illustrious poem this morning! What a tremendous piece my friend, such a glorious remembrance of the past, Great Work!!
