My inner self

I am an old man
But I never really grew up
For that I'm thankful

I lay on the grass
Looking up at the blue sky
While the clouds race past

The sun smiles at me
I wade barefoot in the stream
Fish nibble my toes

I am who I am
Happy with my inner self
In love with my life

You can walk with me
I will even hold your hand
Trees whisper to us

I am so thankful
Not ever really grown up
And still a young man

  1. My sentiments exactly, Old Egg. :-)

    Growing up is overrated; and staying young at heart and being silly at times is sometimes all we have when the seas are stormy.

    Lovely writing.

  2. And you shine like the sun in the sky - i am glad you are who you are too
