"Somebody cares if you're happy today, If your heart is cheerful and light. Somebody cares if you're feeling good And everything's going just right. And somebody hopes that this message will show, in a warm little heart-to-heart way, You're thought of, remembered, and happily wished An especially wonderful day." 995 days ago
How do I know my youth is all spent? My get-up-and-go has got up and went. My joints are still and filled with pain. The pills that I take give me no gain. I rub in the ointment like fury I do. Each pain when it leaves comes back with two. But in spite of it all I am able to grin When I think of the places my get-up has been. Old age is GOLDEN I have heard it said, But sometimes I wonder as I get into bed- My "ears" on the dresser, my "teeth" in a cup, My "eyes" on the table until I wake up. Ere sleep comes each night I say to myself, "Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?" Yet I am happy to know as I close the door, My friends are the same as in days of yore. Since I have retired form life's competition Each day is filled with complete repetition. I get up every morning and dust off my wits Go pick up the paper and read the "o-bits." If my name isn't there I know I'm not dead; I get a good breakfast and go back to bed. The reason I know my youth is all spent- My get-up-and-go has got up and went.
