How can one person
Feel so much pain?
How can one soul
Have two of the same?
How can one's tears
Be washed by the rain?
How can one stumble
And not have a cane?
How can one smile
When all isn't tame?
How can one lose two
And still remain sane?

To lose a husband and brother within two weeks....

My poor, poor Bobbi...

My Zeidy

I thought you were
I thought you were
I thought that you would never go away.

I never thought I'd
say this
I never thought I'd
live this
I never thought that I'd cry here today.

I wish I could have
called you
I wish I could have
seen you
I wish that I could kiss you one more time.

I know you know
I love you
I know you know
I miss you
I know that you will never leave my mind.

Woke up in the early dawn
Sweating in my sleep
Hunched over, clutching center
'Twasn't very sweet

I did feel kind of nauseous
As I dashed into the loo
Though I was feeling crummy
There was one thing I knew

I could never tell YOU.

See, I knew that if I'd say
That I wasn't feeling great
Your eyes would travel center
To see if I'd gained weight

Then you'd gently give a knowing smile
And ask me when I'm due.
Did it ever occur to you
That I simply have the flu?

My ideas

My idea of a good supper:
Grilled chicken....wild rice....steamed broccoli with dijonnaise

My idea of a yummy dessert:
napoleons...scoop of vanilla ice cream...caramel sauce
Lemon sorbet...wild berry sorbet...raspberry slice

My idea of a relaxing evening:
A cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows...a good empty sink

My idea of an interesting outing:
Science museum
Somewhere near the ocean

just sharing...

One Year

It's been one year since my engagement.
One full year.
Strange, isn't it?
On the one hand, I feel like I've been married forever.
One the other, I feel like I can never learn enough.
So many, many things have happened that I never even dreamed about.
And it just keeps getting better.
And more interesting.
And harder.
All at once.

I know I haven't been such a regular blogger the past year, but I hope to totally settle in soon and be back to my usual self.

See ya around!
