Old Man


"Old man take a look at my life I'm a lot like you 
I need someone to love me the whole day through 
Ah, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true."
Neil Young
Today my old man is sixty-four
which reminds me of another song (Beatles)...
I still feed him and still need him when he's sixty-four
We  have endured floods together
and worked through many nights.
He's always given me a hand
and I'll always have his back.
I look forward to many happy years with him.
You'll always be my nemesis, my lover, my husband and my friend.
Happy Birthday!

My "old man" (who loves Neil Young) recently turned 65, and I feel much the same way, including the nemesis! 😉 It's all there, every shade and color after so many years together, but most of colors are ones I love. This is a great post, and you couldn't have said it better. Happy birthday to him, and may this be a year of health and happiness for both of you! 😊
