Never Ever Forget

Updated on November 9, 2017
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Never forget,

to celebrate each and every day,

always so much to say,

a kind word here and there,

making everyone,

you meet smile at you.

Look about you,

as nature blooms and blossoms,

providing colorful shows,

as autumn slides by.

Look at the sun,

celebrate the moon and the stars,

laugh with glee -

at all that you see.

These simple delights are so special and free,

live life as you should,

make it all good,

be a child at heart,

go dancing in the sun and the rain.

Fly with the wind,

as you hold tight,

to the dreams you spin.

Embrace all the good,

push away all the bad,

never ever let yourself be sad.

As time passes by,

be the one to sigh,

knowing that so much still awaits.

If we live life just right,

we become younger with each passing day,

keeping the child,

alive in our hearts -


Never ever say never!

      I love your cheerful poem, my dear! I am listening to the song you shared, too! How nice! One has the present time in which to live and choose how to live! There are ample reasons to rejoice and view life with cheerful optimism. I think of myself as an optimistic realist and a realistic optimist. haha.

      Thank you for this special cheer!

      We must keep the child alive in our hearts. The alternative is a depressing thought and no way to live.
