The Blue Screen of Death

On a night much stormier than this
Came a cry from out of the mist
A blood curling cry did pierce the night
It startled me with such a fright
What could bring such dread
Was it a monster or the walking dead
I ran to see what caused such a stir
Nothing but a blur
What caused this shrill from my friend Beth
But having a project due and getting the blue screen of death

Decree of the Heart

The dream of a moment with you
Drives me each and every day
Next to you is where I feel whole
My love for you I extol
To touch your skin
Will always draw me in
To see your radiant smile
I would walk a thousand miles
You are all I will ever need
Wanting you my heart has decreed
I love you with all heart
Will never keep us apart


Picture is my own….Me and the love of my life.

A Moose on the Loose

What do you do with a mouse
That will not leave your house
What do you do with that ant
Who does nothing but rant
Or a that flea
That wants to sit on your knee
When that cat
Keeps thinking your name is Matt
Then there’s that dog
Who is just so scared of the fog
And finally, there is that one that won’t vamoose                                                        A moose on the loose
Why can’t I just have normal animals around me
That just go woof, meow and squeak
Oh well what can you deduce
When you live inside an old caboose

Time

Time slips by slowly
Never going as fast as we wish
Or slowly when we need it to
Time together is to short
Time apart drags on and on
Slowly the seconds tick by
Making the minutes move on
With the hours passing into the past
The days mixing into each other
With the months feeling like eternity
Until that day I come home
Into your loving arms
Where I will pass the rest of my time
Until my time runs out
But I will make every second of it count
Because with you is where I belong always

Five Finger Death Punch – “Bad Company”

I spent 2 tours in Iraq from 2010 – 2011 and 2017 -2018.  I unfortunately didn’t get to see them when they were over there. Worked 12 – 15 hour days 7 days a week on average. Some where much longer. I think the hardest part is coming back home sometimes. I want to have a special shout out to all my brother’s and sisters who have held that line and for those who never came home and those still fighting.  God Bless  you all…

 

Safety Suit – “Anywhere But Here”

Is this the end of the moment
Or just a beautiful unfolding
Of a love that will never be
Or maybe be
Everything that I never thought could happen
Or ever come to pass and I wonder
If maybe, maybe I could be all you ever dreamed

Cause you are
Beautiful inside
So lovely and I can’t see why
I’d do anything without you

You are
And when I’m not with you
I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere
But here without you

Is this a natural feeling
Or is it just me bleeding
All my thoughts and dreams in hope
That you will be with me or
Is this a moment to remember
Or just a cold day in December
I wonder
If maybe, maybe I could be all
you ever dreamed

Cause you are
Beautiful inside

so lovely and I can’t see why
I’d do anything without you
You are
And when I’m not with you
I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere
But here without you

Is this the end of the moment
Or just a beautiful unfolding
Of a love that will never be
For you and me

Cause you are
You’re beautiful inside,
you’re so lovely and I can’t see why
I’d do anything without you
You are
And when I’m not with you
I know that it’s true
That I’d rather be anywhere
But here without you

Bad English – “When I See You Smile”

Sometimes I wonder
How I’d ever make it through
Through this world without having you
I just wouldn’t have a clue
‘Cause sometimes it seems
Like this world’s closing in on me
And there’s no way of breaking free
And then I see you reach for me
Sometimes I wanna give up
I wanna give in
I wanna quit the fight
And then I see you, baby
And everything’s alright
Everything’s alright
When I see you smile
I can face the world, oh oh
You know I can do anything
When I see you smile
I see a ray of light, oh oh
I see it shining right through the rain
When I see you smile
Baby, when I see you smile at me, oh yeah
Baby, there’s nothing in this world
That could ever do
What a touch of your hand can do
It’s like nothing that I ever knew
And when the rain is falling, I don’t feel it
‘Cause you’re here with me now
And one look at you, baby
Is all I’ll ever need, is all I’ll ever need
When I see you smile
I can face the world, oh oh
You know I can do anything
When I see you smile
I see a ray of light, oh oh
I see it shining right through the rain
When I see you smile, baby
Baby, when I see you smile at me
Sometimes I wanna give up
I wanna give in
I wanna quit the fight
Then one look at you, baby
And everything’s alright
Everything’s alright, so right
When I see you smile
I can face the world, oh oh
You know I can do anything, yeah
When I see you smile
I see a ray of light, oh oh
I see it shining right through the rain, yeah
When I see you smile
Yeah, I can face the world, oh oh
You know I can do anything
When I see you smile, oh yeah
Baby, when I see you smile
Smile at me


Heard this song today and immediately thought of the woman with the most beautiful smile, the one that warms my heart and with whom my life is complete.  https://herwritinghaven.com/

Stages

Stages of life pass us by
First, we are baby’s dependent on those around us
Then we are children learn to run, jump and have fun
Followed by those teen years between a child and adult
As we begin our adult years there comes new experiences                                       From marriage to parenthood
Watching our children grow as we go along in our own lives
Growing through those stages of life we once traipsed
Then they reach that time for marriage and starting their own families
Becoming in-laws then grandparents
Oh grandparents a stage I recently came into
How wonderful it has been to watch my baby grow up and have her own baby
As I held my grandson for the first time
The magic of seeing my own daughter as a baby returned
Such a small little person, but so incredible to behold
That love of a child raised tenfold
How fascinated I was just to watch him there
A miracle that started when I met such a beautiful person so long ago
How our love created our own family which now has grown larger you see
Being a grandparent is a badge I wear with pride
A name I love to hear told into my ear
Thank you, Lord, for another wonderful gift
So perfectly made by the hand who made us all
