Cry No More






I let you in my door

Into my heart

I touched

You deep within

You let me

Taste your soul

You let my

Cold  heart open

We became one

And then the

Next day I

Woke and you

Were gone

Nothing but

A note to

Say sorry

I can’t do this

eye crying

Strangers In The Night





Strangers In The Night



Walking down my street

Feeling lonely and blue

And then I felt your stare

And I turned and it was you


Turning away and walking

Forgetting about  your face

I felt a tug on my coat

I turn and see you in my space


Saying nothing but stepping in line

We walk together, rhyming in time

Then you take my hand in yours

And we walk so intertwined


We stop under the beaming light

Our faces turn towards the other

I feel it in my heart

I want you for my lover


You sense what I feel

We walk to my front door

You take my key and open it

To a land of never more.

God Answered

I am still fighting this salivary gland issue. I was looking on google for ways to rid this without going through surgery. I found several sites that said suck on sour candy to up the saliva in my mouth; so when I get done writing this I am heading off to the Dollar Store. Spending a dollar or two is not going to hurt my wallet, just my sugar levels, but it it can help, so be it.

Yesterday I found a house to live in, in my daughter’s home town. I sealed the deal with money and now when I move in September I won’t be a permanent door mat at my daughter’s house, and for this, I am sure she and her family will be quite grateful. She loves me, but she has her own family and life to live without a mom there.

Last evening a family came to look at my home. They were looking for a place for their  mom to purchase. They seemed impressed and went home to think about it. First thing this morning they called, and they want to buy it. Yeah! Tomorrow they will come here to seal the deal.

So the way I look at life right now is I am making the right decision to move. I prayed before any action asking God to guide me easily through each step if he thought it was a good idea to move away from here. I would say my prayer was answered. Now to reserve the moving truck and back to more packing. Thank-you Lord for showing me your answers.
