How To Create The Wow Factor

Updated on June 20, 2019

Loaded With Enthusiasm

Stuffed more than a Thanksgiving turkey

Tell people the way it is

Things didn't work out

No matter what

I am still here

A little shock therapy might help

But I thought of a different approach

Bring it on

All my energy and my thoughts rolled into a ball

It still doesn't work

It is alright

The stars in the sky are in line


That was a plane flying bye

What the hey

It's going to be a great day

That was my toe caught on the leg of our dresser

Who put that there

Give me a few potato chips

I will finish the whole bowl

If you need help I will be there

When I am stressed or troubled

Noone is there

I will not call

I will not ask

I think you should know

How could you possibly see and feel what is tucked away inside of me ?

Like a blanket folded under the bed

It looks good on the outside

In the inside nobody can figure out

People complain when the weather is lousy

I do not understand why people don't enjoy it anyway

May it be the rain or the hot sun

The winter snow and the bitter cold followed by hail

Don't you see the beauty in it all

I keep trying to make people realize

What we have now

Is rich and wonderful

My wife is going to brush her teeth and go to bed

She caught a cold out of the blue

A slight sore throat and a dry cough

While I get my second wind

Watching t.v. was so much fun

Now my head is racing

Faster than a drag race on the hot payment

I can't believe

I just got bit in the left leg behind the knee

We can't seem to find the light blanket

We leave on the bed

We put it away last summer

And we haven't seen it sense

Things keep popping up

Like stones around a wagon train

I piece each event together

Like popcorn on a string

Dangling from our Christmas tree as kids

The hour turned to two o'clock

Some say that time goes so slow

I know it flew bye

Even though it is early in the morning

I am looking for the express train that took it away

      All I can say is I have to get through summer first. Summer always came with the Midsummer festivities in Latvia, other memories, the Fourth of July picnic the US Embassy in Riga hosted, his birthday, and in August it will be 2years since he went away, If I manage to get through another summer I'll be OK. At least here the memories are not right in front of me of the places and faces. Hope you're having a great weekend.
