One does do so to feel bright,

Two does do so to feel the light,

Three does do so to see life,

Four does do so to pass the night…


Five may do so to show enjoyment,

Six may write to counter the stress of employment,

Seven may find it necessary to refuse deployment,

Eight may do it as to his god he does repent…


Nine may do so to feel fine,

Ten may find it quite Zen,

Eleven may do so to achieve heaven,

Twelve might do it rather than to it shelve…

Why do I write? It saves my life. That's the most important reason of all. And you give me twelve reasons, all valid. Well done!

(((HUGS))) and love to you, Rene and Rufuz *wOoF!!ers*, Karla.

Main reason is we have something to say and want it to be read to confirm whether we are, what we think we are, or not;-)Among other reasons. methinks there are too may to count, though you did a good job of it! Eileen...woof woof Rufuz, want a bunny rabbit;-)!
