Don’t Let The Old Man In ~ A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

Walt's Writings

This poem was inspired by the Toby Keith song,
Don’t Let The Old Man In”, from the movie
“The Mule”.

When you hear those cold winds blowing
That bring him knocking on your door
Hang the Do Not Disturb sign
And turn off the lights
And don’t let the old man in
You’ve lived a good life
And though your body is worn
You wouldn’t even know how old you are
If you didn’t know when you were born
You still have a lot of living to do
Songs to sing and poems to write
So when you hear those cold winds blow
And he’s knocking at your door
Open the door and say
“Not yet old man”

Evolving Dreams

Heartstring Eulogies

“Let’s lay under a blanket of stars
and fill our hearts with warmth.
We could all use a little escape.”

Could this be the end? Not of us, but of all that we dreamed we would do together. How we’d travel the world. Spend countless nights under the stars making up constellations and telling the old myths that came before them. Or, is it just the way our lives evolved over time. That our dreams of our future are still very much alive, but yet they’re no longer the focal point of us. Because we have become more than just you and me. And I’m okay with that. I will always be okay with that.

So let’s make up constellations together as a family and tell their stories under a blanket of stars and warmth in our hearts.

Don’t Laugh at Me

Penny Wilson Writes

Music has influenced my life many times over the years. It has A way to lift you up or drown you in sorrow. It is so powerful, inspiring, and thought-provoking. Poetry set to music. What could be more perfect? “Don’t Laugh at Me” is a song written by Allen Shamblin and Steve Seskin, and recorded by American country music artist Mark Wills. It was released in July 1998 as the second single from the album “Wish You Were Here”.Although this song has been around for 20 years, when I heard it a week or so ago, it brought me to tears. “In God’s eyes we’re all the same. Someday we’ll all have perfect wings.” See below. I hope you enjoy.

I’m a little boy with glasses
The one they call the geek
A little girl who never smiles
‘Cause I’ve got braces on my teeth
And I…
