remember 55

Remember to smile
not just because you should
Remember to laugh
because even old jokes hold joy
Remember to sing
with your heart not your mouth
Remember to trust
because hope is the future
Remember the child we were
is locked inside
and we hold the key

Always nurture that spark
without which we age

You are beautiful Toadee.

Muttars says boys don't like to be called beautiful ... but I don't care ... you are.

Awww, guys, thank you so much. These sort of comments make me want to write more (so you'll be sorry)

Hey Morgy, it just goes to show that one shouldn't generalise or adhere to stricy gender stereo-types. I like being called beautiful, it doesn't happen often.
