One Single Impression: Choices




Youthful Choices

my Johnny Boy please use your head
don't go too far away from home
head for the gold at rainbow's end
not a good choice alone unknown

I'm Johnny Boy I've made my pick
not left or right which one to choose
I'll take the cloud where angel sits
all seem the same nothing to loose

first love is sweet ne'er to forget
it mattered not soon went their way
our Johnny Boy had no regret
for sixty years savored one day

. . .

found this of love that Johnny had
though you travel from home so far
making your choices good or bad
savor the rose your way is hard

Love the picture- always a fan of cloud pics! This line is my favorite: "I'll take the cloud where angel sits"- Me TOO! That's where I want to be. Hope all is well with you- your comments on my posts are always so appreciated- you do have a way with the words!
