When I Grow Up

When I Grow Up

When I grow up

I’m gonna see the world

Meet the press

Run through the rain.

When I grow up

I’m gonna hoola-hoop

Jump over the moon

Feel no pain.

When I grow up

I will shed no tears

Wear smiles every day

Run through the breeze

Skip down the lane.

When I grow up

I’m gonna forget the past

Start from this day on

Breathe in fresh air

Live life again.

      • I hate to admit it, but the moaning and groaning is really getting to me. I can’t stop him from doing it. I have tried everything. I do know I really need this break coming up and I hope it does happen. I want Al to go to heaven because I know he is miserable. I know I will miss him like crazy but I will survive, I always do. Hugs my friend. Thanks for caring about me too


      • I am hoping so. It is way past the time we all expected. I hope you can get some rest and recuperate over the next week.


  1. praying for you and Al. by the way, that truly was a cute poetic reflection. it reminds me of when i was a wee one and the neighbor boys would argue about who was going to be a fireman. then, later, they would try to play fireman by out the imaginary fire with a not so imaginary “hose.”
