Short On Time


Work Is Calling

I am not ready yet

I have a few more things to do

Eating breakfast now

I rush in to brush my hair

We just made such wonderful love

My body still floating on air

My phone is charged and we opened all the windows

I need some incredible fresh air

To clear my mind

Half dressed and I still have to shave

Brush my teeth

Where is my deodorant?

I look at the clock once

I check my watch

Glancing at my phone

Looking at the time is not going to slow it down any

I can't do much more

I dry up a few dishes

No time to water the flowers or the garden

I have to call the police

Someone stole my day

Did anyone see which way my day went?

It is over before it started

The police have enough things on their mind

I will have to find this one on my own

Have a great day everyone

Watch your day real close

I don't want to see

What happened to me

Happen to you

Manuela I think we need a little me time. Where we can just relax and kickback. Time to destress. I sometimes sit on my back deck and just watch the trees blow in the wind. Then back at it all over again. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and if you have any tips they would be much appreciated. Have a beautiful Sunday.

My days are like that very frequently. Nice poem!

Gypsy Rose Lee I often reflect back at all my lovely memories. They don't replace the love that I experience now they just remind me how much I love, love. Love is always growing and that is what makes it so beautiful. I dream about going into a box filled with time and taking out more hours to use on any day needed. Then on busy days I get all the things done that I need to do and on slow days I can shorten the time to move things along. I am happy that you have your old home movies. What makes them so special is that you were in a very wonderful place in your life. The love that you had for your husband and the time you spent together is a great reminder. I am sure he would want you to be happy and living every day filled with so much love. If it was the other way around and he was here and you were gone how would you want him to enjoy the rest of his life? Alone or being happy finding someone that makes him feel good. So he can also share all the memories you had together and build a life of happiness. Every day I pick up where I left off. Sometimes I feel I never will catch up or get ahead. Then I have to remember I do so much more than other people I know and if it was a list of things to be done I am way ahead of schedule. (lol) Thank you so much for reading and sharing so many thoughts not just now but all the comments in the past. I look back at so many poems I have written and I see your kind thoughts. Charlotte misses Sid and we can only hope you have a new companion that brings you joy and endless days of pleasure. One great big yawn from Charlotte as she goes back to sleep. She had such a rough day yesterday. She only slept 18 out of the 24 hours. Oh, how nice it would be to be a cat. Have a nice day. I hope the tropical storm misses you. Let me know how you make out? I heard it on the news.

All my days can start as slow or as fast as I want them to. However, I find that on some days I need 48 hours to get everything done not just 24. Wish me luck on the stars in the sky. Tonight I have finally gathered my courage and I am going to start watching my old home movies. Suddenly my lost soul mate will be alive on the screen and I will hear his voice again. How I will be after that I have no idea. I hope you have a great weekend.
