Smile

smile-191626_960_720

Looking into your eyes

Finding myself mesmerized

Feeling a warmth between us grow

Scanning your face I memorize

Each little bit that I look upon

I see the one I love

Then as you look back at me

I see your lips begin to curl

A smile comes upon your face

Bringing me to heights I race to climb

My heart races, my pulse rises

A smile that shows me your soul

A joy inside that was missing for to long

I smile inside and outside from head to toe.

A Star Wars Saga

It all started with a New Hope

But then the Empire Strikes Back

Which led to the Return of the Jedi

Before this all happened there was A Phantom Menace

Causing the Attack of the Clones

Giving way to the Return of the Sith

Leaving us now with the Force Awakens

And The Last Jedi

And somewhere in there is a Rogue One

Old Soldier

When do you realize it is time to settle

Taking your foot off the peddle

Deciding that it’s time to step back

When you are young you look forward to what comes next

Always pushing yourself to reach a higher level

Moving on from one opportunity to another

When is it time to realize those opportunities are dwindling

Time waits for no man they say

So when will I know that day

Taking that one last attempt

To continue a career that you love

So much says it is time to quit

Enjoy what you have done and stop doing it

Move onto the next stage of your life

Your body is full of aches and pains

Mind not as sharp, but still there most of the time

I am a soldier that is what I have known for over twenty-one years

Not done in my heart or in my head

A few good years left inside this old soul

Proving again to myself of my worth

What happens to old soldiers when it is time to go

As it was once said

Old soldiers never die, they just fade away

Future for Two

holding-hands-2180640_960_720

Dreaming of a future with you

A time when our days are made for us two

Travelling from place to place

Discovering the beauty of God’s great creation

From the Beaches of the coasts

To the Mountains along the divide

And all the areas in-between

Together we will travel from one destination to the next

Visiting our children and their families

Growing older into our twilight we will be

Experiencing all the sights of created by God’s mighty hand

A future meant just for us two

Diet

hunger-413685_960_720

Today is a new day

Trying to do things a new way

Denying those things I use to enjoy

Things that I would have every day

Causing my waist to expand

Exercise every day to keep it thin was my plan

As I grew older it became a losing cause

Aches and pains compounded my lack of loss

So now I will try a different tact

Wish me luck on my new plan of attack


Today I started a new plan for my life, it is a change in eating habits. It is called the Whole30. Doing this challenge with my wife. You may know her as ~M at https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/ . So wish us luck. It will be a interesting month, but I’m hoping that it goes good and will be something I will take forward with my life.
