I must be a bad boy...................

If the good die young like we're told.
Why have I lived to be so old?
Many a life I've saved,
While in the medical field.

Away from death,
Them I have wrought.
It was just my job,
And never gave it a thought.

So then the phrase I guess,
Is just jive.
But if it's really true ,
Why am I.........Still alive?

I'm happy to hear that you cared enough to save lives instead of not giving a damn and doing nothing. Good die young as well as good die old.

I Love The Image Walt...and as for the wonderment
well too they say "no good deed goes unpunished"
perhaps there is a whopper instore for you?
& not the kind at B-K Lounge :)
and I am wishful thinking for you to have
a long & happy life people need you

Walt sometimes I think that is just a myth to soothe the family and friends of those who die young. If it's true then it's just too late for naughty ones like you and me!!

Wonderfully expressed, Walt. After the loss of my son and mother, I've asked the same question. It's not our time yet, Walt ... moving poetry!

I guess it was good jeans. I prefer Levi's. Or could have been all those sample pills or hospital chemicals you breathed. It certainly wasn't bottled water or testosterone enhancers. ;-)

The older we live, the more we beat the odds. My grandfather used to say, I'm waiting for the good Lord to take me away. I thought that he was being a bit pessimistic as we fished by the river, his favorite pastime. But now I'm beginning to see what he meant.

Walt, you are with us to entertain, enlighten and perhaps even still save other lives, who knows - plan on being with us a lot longer - I wish you love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael
