To all the men in my life.
"Forever Young" May the good Lord be with you Down every road you roam And may sunshine and happiness surround you when you're far from home And may you grow to be proud Dignified and true And do unto others As you'd have done to you Be courageous and be brave And in my heart you'll always stay Forever Young, Forever Young Forever Young, Forever Young May good fortune be with you May your guiding light be strong Build a stairway to heaven with a prince or a vagabond And may you never love in…
