All The Good Things In life



What's the most important thing in life It's love, love, love Nothing else has ever ever comes close More than anything else above Call me an over-the-hill silly old duffer But this is what I've found Without it, there's an empty space down deep Your heart has a hollow sound So if you haven't yet experienced true love The best part is up ahead It's the greatest treat you'll ever experience You'll feel giddiness in your head Take it from me, I've learned from experience It's why I wake up with a smile It's away ahead of whatever comes second It wins out by a country mile Love is basically what this life's all about Passion for another human being About treasuring all the good things we have It even surpasses peeing! <3 <3 <3 © Jack Ellison 2013

    You can say that again! It WAY surpasses peeing! Especially with big old Dragons and Trolls... And so many of everybody! Put in a BIG cummunal bathroom! With BIG stalls! Honestly! Went to revolving chores so no one has to ALWAYS clean the darn thing!... Like me! LOL... Multiple showers, too. Yep! Multiple chores again... Gotta keep every one smelling sweet and clean! Especially in the winter when Troll Lake freezes over... And talk about singing in the shower! We're making an album soon!... LOL
