watching a child grow
Where were you last night when 2012 turned into 2013? Is that where you’d wanted to be?
Where was I last night when 2012 turned into 2013? Well, you see this picture beneath? This is where I was. I was being fat and sassy in my own comfort of the bedroom. I had taken my bath and glossed my hair. I was cuddling in soft materials, nuzzled on top of a feather topper.
The only fireworks that were going on were outside my home. Others wanted to hoop it up in the freezing cold, but not I. Was I drinking it up? Did I look like I was having an early hangover? Nope, not at all. I don’t believe in making myself crazy. I am already that without the drink. I guess that explains why I have nine lives and you don’t.
I had my special treat. A bowl of milk and some bite-size snippets. My master turned her favorite programs on. Before I tell you the name of the station she watches, I have to remind you that part of her mind never caught up with time frame we are in now. She is still partially stuck in reverse in the eighties. She watches TV Land, yes, you understood me. That show that plays all the oldies before I was born?
Her favorite programs are on Nick-At-Nite. King of Queens, Happily Divorced, Golden Girls. You get the drift don’t you? Well personally, I would rather be watching the cartoon Tom and Jerry, but I humor the owner of this den, because she feeds me good.
I’m sure she won’t be smacking you with the baseball bat hiding behind the door if you did go out and party. If you drank, I hope you drank responsibly. If you left in a car, I hope that a good friend drove you home. If you woke up in a strange bed, I will pray for you! LOL.
I didn’t even watch the big ball drop. I am a real dud, right? Boring boring, but I was safe, happy, content and comfy. What else could I possibly want or need? Well maybe someone to rub my belly. Scratch behind my ears, and how about throwing me an extra tuna treat for heaven’s sakes! I see you heading for the fridge again!
Several nights staying awake too late
Worrying and stressing about your fate
Going back in time to who you used to be
And now seeing this brings tears to me
Decisions we’ve made impact our now
Trying to move forth but do not see how
Wishing and hoping you see the way
Is what I now pray for every day
I hate to see the tough skin you wear
Your feelings are hidden and you do not bare
I remember the softness you once wore so well
Has been replaced by an ugly and now hardened shell
To pretend that others do not exist or walk
Brings harsh words and roughness to your talk
To ignore what is right and do what is wrong
Can only bring sadness intertwined within your song
I pray that you seek the values instilled by me
I ask God to heal your heart and let the anger be
Oh please find a way and try to heal your soul
I wish only good things and this you know
Now I have to stand back and wait
Too see if my prayers are really too late
I will wait on God and watch his plan
To help you see you need his hand.
