1.1.18 Forever Young

I got this tattoo two years ago with two of my best friends, who have the same mark with different meanings. This permanent reminder was chosen in an attempt to put my pain, heartache, and devastation into a physical representation of what I survived during my journey to ALS diagnosis. This tattoo is based on the love, encouragement, and conviction I feel every single time I hear this song. I’m sharing this with you on this very first day of 2018 in hopes that you too will find love, encouragement, and conviction in this brand new year.

May God bless and keep you always

May your wishes all come true

May you always do for others

And let others do for you

May you build a ladder to the stars

And climb on every rung

May you stay forever young

Forever young, forever young

May you stay forever young

May you grow up to be righteous

May you grow up to be true

May you always know the truth

And see the lights surrounding you

May you always be courageous

Stand upright and be strong

May you stay forever young

Forever young, forever young

May you stay forever young

May your hands always be busy

May your feet always be swift

May you have a strong foundation

When the winds of changes shift

May your heart always be joyful

May your song always be sung

May you stay forever young

Written by Bob Dylan
