I’ve Got Your Back JanieG

Peace

I have Your Back JanieG

The times they are a changin’

In this year of losing control

Our lives are battered by circumstance

As we tumble, stumble and roll.

A year of deep frustration

To many in our inner fold,

Lives ripped from comfort existent peace,

As we tumble, stumble and roll.

You are my best friend and sis,

My rock and buffer when winds blow.

My back to reality check when

As we tumble, stumble and roll.

Nary a day passes by

Without a tea, a laugh or crow

About the day, our victories when,

As we tumble, stumble and roll.

We all will find our footing.

This turbulence and wind will go

And while the miles will be a bit more

As we tumble, stumble and roll

The essence of what we are,

Cast in genes and love will console.

The miles are few, the laughs are many

As we tumble, stumble and roll.

You’re not losing your best friend,

And we are gaining more control

As those vicious winds calm  no more will

We tumble, stumble and roll.

Signed with love, as you love to say,

Your Royal Highnass!

Mama’s Losin It Challenge

Of the challenges today I chose posting an old journal. Mama’s losing it did a neat piece on what she does to drive her significant other CRAZY.
I figured it was probably significant that I am without “other” so decided to attack some thing credible.
This was not a post but a poem from my journal on October 2nd, 2010.
This is my day
My gift, unexpected 
But very welcome.

What shall I do with 
My day?
Surely not waste it?

Today I move slowly
Enjoy and savor
Comfort and cuddle.

Closets call begging to be cleaned
Drawers and vacuums wait
But this is my day.

My gift 
A Donna day
Calm and puttering

My day, my gift
No work allowed
Day to meditate.

My day, my gift
A thankful day
For each of you.

Sons and daughters,
Bros and sisters
Precious Grand boys

My day, my gift
Compliments
Of God and you – my treasured friends.
