The Most Important Thing On The 'To Do' List Poem by Dee Corpolongo

I wish that life itself was easy
and the trials would one day subside,
I know that winning isn't everything
but God knows how much I've tried.

I feel that we deserve happiness
and contentment the final goal,
to love and be loved by others
can truly be what makes you whole.

So treasure those so dear to you
be thankful that they are there,
Someday too soon they may be gone
and there is no one left to care.

To feel the pains of loneliness
they can cut so very deep
They leave you lost in memory
and all you can do is weep.

    Hold on to those who are dear to us. Only when they disappear, we will realize how important they have been to us and how lonely we are without them! An enjoyable read! ! (Report) Reply

    If you ever get lonely
    Ride down to Ventura 's way
    Sing a song about Alligator lizards
    The wind blowing through your hair
    You can always change you name Joe, I know
    the nights are stronger than moonshine
    You can walk down the road chewing on a piece of grass
    In the purple rain (Report) Reply
