07 - 07 – 07

This morning a little child asked me
'What is today's date, Sir? '
'the seventh day of July,2007' I replied
and he said, ' Thank you, Daddy'
and he disappeared into oblivion

I looked for him but could not see him
the realization came as a great shock
and I broke down in tears on my knees
Oh my gracious, how can I overlook this

Today's date is a special one in our lives
this generation has witnessed what can never be
we cross over a millennium into another millennium
Never again can we see another subtle 07/07/07

What now reverberates in my mortal mind is
the way he said it, 'Thank you, daddy'
and a sad remorse flushed my throbbing heart
Oh my goodness, I did not thank my creator
when I woke up this morning hale and hearty

Oh Lord, permit me now to say a big thank you
and to all good and bad people I have met in life
for they are the harmony that made my lyrics a song
for in generations our paths may never cross again
when my digital clock read 07: 07: 07 and date 07/07/07
and I felt this special event will never happen again
at least not in our present lifetime I decided to share
this moment with future generations when I ‘m long gone

You have no reason to regret. Maybe some kid will ask you the date this year on August eighth, or next year on September ninth. Larry
Clever..........never really thought about it but thanks for your insight. I just love the 07: 07: 07 on the 7th of July 2007
