I Didn’t Want You to Go

I Didn’t Want You To Go


I didn’t want you to go

Didn’t you really know?

All the prayers I said at nights

While you were fighting the fight

I didn’t want you to go

Didn’t my sadness show?

The thought of you not here

Placed my body in total fear

How can I possibly go on

Turn a smile from a frown

How will you hear me say

You say you will always stay?

You promise to stay near?

You say I have no need to fear?

I will cling to your every word

When I see the flying of birds

I will look up to the skies

And quickly wipe the tears from my eyes

I hear you whisper to me

You say it is time to flee

I will love you forever bud

My love I will send above

Hold that spot you promised you would

I promise I will come, I will be good

For there is one thing I  know

The time apart, it will go so slow

But when God says my time is here

We will soar through the skies so near.

Wow, Can My Son-In-Law Cook

Wow, oh wow, is food better when we don’t cook it or what? My son-in-law had invited me over yesterday, Sunday, for dinner as he knew I loved to eat there when he smoked food on the grill.

I couldn’t go because I had to work so I went tonight instead. He had some left-overs of the smoked meat which tasted so good. He made bacon-cheeseburgers, with grilled potato salad. There was macaroni salad and I had taken over a pumpkin dessert.

I ate way too much, but every bite was delicious. I swear some men are the best chefs and my son-in-law definitely would have a busy restaurant if he owned one, because honestly? He is the best cook for any man I ever met.

I had never had grilled potato salad, but I know that at one time or another, I will request that specialty again. I just got home and I have made a final decision for myself. After last night of being slapped a few times and having to be on my feet walking up and down the driveway, I have decided to give this job up.

I have enough experience that I believe I can find something else more suitable for my needs. I am a little nervous because it means no job again, but I pray the span of time will be short.

I am just not steady enough on my own two feet to be helping some frail patient try to stand her own balance, plus I hate to admit it, but I really don’t get off on being slapped. I am going to try to get a job at the local hospital or a private-care job like I used to do. So say prayers a door opens for me please.

A Look Into Where I Live

Today I had to go pay my first water bill, so I grabbed my camera, because I have been asked to take some photos of around here. It was pretty nice outside. Temperature is 82 but humidity is up. Quite a bit of breeze so a perfect day for my camera and me.

The first four photos are of the square down town where I pay my water bill. The big building is where I got my driver’s license. The fifth photo is a small wreck I saw on my outing. The next two are photos of what I saw as I was getting ready to come inside the house. The last two photos are; A) my living room, B) spare bedroom.

I hope you enjoyed looking at these.
