Living life

Portfolio | Become A Fan
I am now seventy-eight.
My life has passed,
But let no man view,
My unforgetful past.

In 1955.
The day somewhat clear to me,
The war was posted on T.V.
I was 18 then and everything else was meant to be,
Until, the Korean War sent out for me.

Everyday I was there,
Was a hopeless minute to bear.
For days were nothing-but unfair,
And seconds were left, as only a dare.

There it has all ended from the hell,
of the leashing bell.

In 1960.
I met my love,
And married her, with slight a shove.
All ended well,
In this endless love tale.

In 1961.
J.F.K got shot.
A tragedy at the time,
But the year ended fine.
My new love was born,
With a little mighty horn.

Sorry, if I let you view the rest,
There would be no hidden chest.
Now, I've tried my very best,
So, may I take my heavenly rest?
