The Vision

Short and sweet because I am trying to deal with what just happened. The only reason I am  posting is for your comforting words because I am weak.

Al and I have spent some wonderful quality time together tonight. But not all of it was good. He told me he felt like there was a big elephant on his chest. Then he told me he thought he was having a stroke.

I checked his vitals but they are not out of the ordinary of what they usually are anymore. Then he told me he saw trucks driving out of Egypt and in front of them was ladies with wings………………..


Visions of You

If I could feel your tears

On my face

See you standing

Where you once stood

Hear your voice

Saying one more time

I love you, I miss you

I would smile

Just one more time.

Daily Prompt; Call Me Ishmael/ The Daily Post

Take the first sentence from your favorite book and make it the first sentence of your post.

Once upon a time in a land of  Neverland there was a baby girl born.

She was the apple of her parents eyes because they believed they were so forlorn

She graced their days with laughter and delight


They adored tucking her in every single night

She grew and grew until she was grown

She followed the path they seeded and sown

Now she was going to marry a prince

The parents had dreamed of this ever since

Their toddler was dressed in mommy’s clothes

Complete with white dress and shoes that showed tiny toes

Her father walks her down the aisles

And all I can do is sit here and smile

I wish for her happiness and bliss

When the vows are spoken and the prince doeth kiss

I hope and pray that you love and care for her

Honor her with gold and love and myrrh

Be happy today now little girl grown

Now go and grow a child of your own.
