Long hair, denim jacket, Frye boots
A Fu Manchu, behind dark green Ray-Bans
No cares, top of the world, indestructible
Aah! to be young again, no aches neither pain
A mile in less than six, not breaking a sweat
Now feeble and gray, no longer invincible!
Yet the mind’s still sharp, with total recall
Of the golden days of youth many moons ago
It’s a blessing perhaps, or maybe criminal!
To be able to remember what will never be again
To yearn for what’s lost and beyond repair
Just an exercise futile, a dream impossible!!

A dream is always there. We always dream. It is one last Wonder we hang on in the latter part of our life I see as another word for love.
It makes me smile that a few of our dreams came true at one time in our life. And we don’t forget. They make us happy. They make us continue dreaming. For life itself is a dream between love and love.

Like. Thank you Brod. Yes we were unbroken and will be until the end. It’s all faith, hope, love/charity - the Three Heavenly Graces - the Carmague Cross.
