    Don - Your 'special' beautiful poem almost made me cry - sooooooooooooooo beautiful!
    And to think that you thought of me at this [present] time..........
    Your poems are wonderful - most enjoyable, if through tears or laughter....
    Do get back to the 'indelible' ink Don, get yourself out and about to wander Australia and create some more Australian masterpieces.

    Keep smilin' sweet man.
    You know who - from you know where.

To fixin’ up a shoe

Sun tanned lines etched deep within
His life’s work for all to see
There was not a lie from this old bloke
He was as straight as straight could be

The way ahead may not be clear
The way ahead should hold no fear
Have an inner peace
Conviction strong
To sail your path
To sing your song

Live it to the full
Be kind and brave
