To get through the day a few winks I need borrow If the jobs not done now heck ... there's always tomorrow I anger less often I'll even take all the blame Lifes a thrill it seems just to play simple games I prepare each treasured day for the long journeys' end When my time and eternity finally meet and they blend ~ My cares are less wanton for the cash and the glitter I've socked away some in case the days do get bitter I use a much broader view for the sights I now find Try to judge all I hear with a wide open mind I put my brain in high gear for all but a yawn Whence the lip it goes forth I rest assured when it's gone ~ All the friends of my youth come to visit me often Inside my old head where their visions I soften My day-dreams now wander to unknown sights yet ahead Lingering all so much longer on every tear that I've shed Dismal days getting darker down the road that I roam To a place where the living can never call home ~ I'll try to bring laughter avoid all the tears The time I have left could span many years So plug in your smile and show me your grin Borrow my hanky wipe the tears from your chin The best things in life we share from within To never have laughed is dam near a sin ~~~
Rex~ I like what you've done with the laughter. In this world we might as well laugh at ourselves ... you know darned good and well that someone else is ! I like to leave a smile where I've been. Great attitude ... BIG SMILES ! ~*Marge*~

How'd you know I needed that hanky? This is great! We all need to laugh as it's the best medicine Thanks, I missed your work as I've not been around here too much, and I was thinking of you yesterday...
