FAVORITE OCTOGENARIAN

a poem by Nancy Ellen Crossland, USA - poetry writer, author, poet

With a smile to brighten the darkest corner
And laughter to match as well,
A treasured octogenarian, it's a privileged friendship to tell

A life filled with joys and sorrows it's true,
But an outlook to inspire the lowest of moods,

Least I forget the sparkling blue eyes,
Where a twinkle still lingers without a disguise?

And always an encouraging word when you're down,
She'll take a frown and turn it around,

Oh that I may possess,
And be so greatly blessed,
As this favorite octogenarian of mine
