Crisp autumn air cracks and whips the windows through the trees.
Leaves like jewels are stolen and tossed violently in the breeze.
We have no cares because we're indoors, cozy as you please.
With a cuppa cocoa by the fire we're tangled at the knees.
We're snuggled up together, warming our bodies and our hearts.
It won't be long before the chill of winter and the holiday season starts.
But that doesn't worry me; it's my favorite time of year.
I'm thankful to share the long, cold, nights now that you are here.
Lots of taking,
Not much giving.
Lots of dieing,
Not much living.
Lots of crying,
Not much laughing.
Lots of lying,
Even more grafting.
But there's still hoping,
And there's still praying.
There's still loving
So it's worth staying.
The world's not perfect,
But it's better than before.
Today is another chance for peace,
To try again once more.
I was Going to Live My Dream But. A Poem About the Little Ways Our Days Evaporate and so Do the Opportunities to Live Our Dreams
I was going to live my dream today. Live to my potential make the best of my life but the children needed breakfast. They wanted scrambled eggs with toast today.
I was going to live my dream today but my husband lost his car keys. He was late for work and it took fifteen minutes to find them.
I was going to live my dream today but on the way to feeding the dog I noticed a long line of ants marching to the kitchen. I had to find the spray to make them go away.
I was going to live my dream today but the baby needed her favorite toy pony that she lost for the fifth time today, it took about forty-five minutes to find it, change her diaper again and put her down for nap. She wanted her favorite story read twice.
I was going to live my dream today but it was lunchtime and the older kids wanted tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Then it was time to clean up and grab something out of the freezer for dinner.
I was going to live my dream today but I needed to put in a load of laundry, do more dishes, and clean up the front room before someone tripped on the toys.
I was going to live my dream but Johnny was having trouble with his homework and tomorrow is the day we are supposed to provide the snack for the class. Then it was time to put dinner in the oven.
I was going to live my dream but then my husband came home. It was time for dinner and he wanted to talk about his day before reading the paper and falling asleep watching baseball on the couch.
I was going to live my dream but the dog needed to be walked.
The cat needed to be fed--again.
The baby can't find her toy pony now and it needs to be found before bedtime in a half an hour.
I was going to live my dream but the HOA says the front walk must be swept and in acceptable condition, by their standards, by tomorrow.
I was going to live my dream but I am exhausted.
I'll try to live my dream again tomorrow.
This is no dream.
Real more than anything else could be.
Universal plane consciousness overwhelming.
Essential to happiness and well being.
Lessons learned, peace of mind,
Obsession tears at my mind.
Very essence of my being screams out!
Everything is upside down and blown apart.
Although it tears me apart,
Let it be known once and for all,
Whatever happens from this moment on.
Always and forever
You are my
