You’ve got to love your life.

I’m drifting through my life
As I climb those rocky trails
The only place I want to be is now
The Spring comes, me just sitting here
As the grass grows by itself
I never did want too much, anyhow.

Can’t worry about your burdens
One has to travel on
The past can’t do no damage, it be gone
And the future, well there’s no one knows
No matter what they do
You cannot stop those hands from moving on.

You’ve got to love your life
That’s the only way to go
There ain’t no going back to what’s been done
Cause life was made for loving
The song you sing is yours
You’re a one of soul, you be the only one.

You have to live your story
No matter where it goes
No matter what the hard knocks you might gain
The road might lead to nowhere
Yet dance it anyhow
When life stands still, then it be lived in vain.

You do have to love your life, at least some parts of it, at least one part of it, at least a sliver of it. It is yours after all. A great reminder to us to all become Auntie Mames and find something to love about our life. Nice.

Hi Caren. there is something deep within each of us that is filled with love and joy, and once one has found it there is nothing that can destroy it From the moment I jump out of bed in the early hours, until the day I sleep again I can feel that joy within me. Thank you, my friend as always for your kind comments...Peter
