It’s nice to know that old friends are still out there, you may not speak to them forever and a year, and poof they they pop up in your inbox and it is such a sweet and pleasant surprise. Thanks

sometimes I want to scream but here is no one to hear it so it would just be another wasted bit of energy. It seems as though even that would be too much work

Well I guess Fuzzy Blue Eyes has finally found his perch here in the house...Laughing. I still recall the day he came into my life, he just called to me, it's funny I had to have him, it has been so long before and after that I have seen anything that has called to me that way. I wonder if it has to do with being practical, or if maybe something else. My thought to ponder today.

a day of longing
a day of solitude
a day of silence
a day of darkness

Did we laugh or did we cry
Did we fail or did we not try

I would love you if you allowed
I would treasure your spirit
I would care for you through the days
and always sing your praises
I would love you if you would allow

Rage
Burning inside my mind
Wasted life
children being adults
the soil fell upon his mother's grave
not a tear shed
Her last words to her young son
I'll come see you when I get paid
payday came
but the bar was on the way
She saw her son of 17 years that day
or shall I say he saw her
laying mangled upon a hospital bed
machines keeping her alive
A choice was asked
No Child should ever have to answer
The silence
no more breath
because of a few beers
a child has became an adult
facing the world alone
His only comment
I never got to say Good-Bye
