Anne the Thinker

Another week of dying
Another week of crying
Another week of wondering, where do we go from here
Another week of drinking
Another week of thinking
Another week of silent desperation for the joy that has gone away
Another week of living
Another week of giving
Another week of hoping for the miracles of a small kind
Another week of moving
Another week of loving
Another week of life through a hazy future present

Worst day of my life
Cookies and beer for dinner
Empty space beside me
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 09/10/13

Gray days early Fall
Breathe of life through wind blown trees
Spreading mystic dreams
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 09/11/13

Smiles and kisses
Dreams and schemes
Plans and hopes
Made up this thing
Random lucky breaks
And hard work and sweat

Smiles and kisses
Dreams and schemes
Happy children
Long days and sleepy nights
Words and looks
Things from books

Smiles and kisses
Dreams and schemes
Days of caring
Days of sharing
Lifetime legacy
After all this

Smiles and kisses
Dreams and schemes
Hopes and visions
Small changes
Big changes
Major setbacks
Lived through with grace and stamina

Smiles and kisses
Dreams
Dreams foregone and fulfilled
Schemes aplenty
But mostly simply
Being
Being together
Through all this

Smiles and kisses
Simple joys
Happy dinners
Sons all grown
All of them sharing
Smiles and kisses
Smiles and kisses

It’s not about fighting. It’s about being. Therese

Precious time
With hope in mind
Of love that never dies

Light of days
will always stay
in hearts and minds they say

when we were young
and nights were long
joy was born through you

Precious time
With hope in mind
Of love that never dies

As time went by
Our children’s lives
Filled days and nights, we two

Joy in learning
Ever burning
And toys and laughter too

Precious time
With hope in mind
Of love that never dies

Growing together all our days
adversities intruded
But never once in all that time
Was discouragement included

Precious time
With hope in mind
Of love that never dies

Fidelity through thick and thin
Was all we ever needed
And better or worse
As wedding verse
Was lived as days
Moved past unheeded

Precious time
With hope in mind
Of love that never dies

As fate had its say
In final days
And strength gives way
In struggles
We’ll always know
Wherever we go that
Precious time
With hope in mind
gives life, not death,
its beauty.

Another good day
To be sad and glad inside
We are like that now
