Poem – Not By Me, But REALLY GOOD


 If I knew it would be the last time that I’d see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door
I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more.
If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise
I would video tape each action and word so I could play them back day after day.
If I knew it would be the last time I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say ‘I love you’ instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.
If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day
Well I’m sure you’ll have so many more so I can let just this one slip away.
For surely there’s always tomorrow to make up for an oversight
and we always get a second chance to make everything just right.
There will l always be another day to say ‘I love you’
and certainly there’s another chance to say our ‘Anything I can do?’
But just in case I might be wrong and today is all I get
I’d like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget.
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone young or old alike
and today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight.
So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes you’ll surely regret the day
That you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone what turned out to be their one last wish.
So hold your loved ones close today and whisper in their ear
Tell them how much you love them and that you’ll always hold them dear.

Take time to say ‘I’m sorry’, ‘Please forgive me, ‘Thank you,’ or ‘its okay’
and if tomorrow never comes you’ll have no regrets about today.





such madness

Man it just seems like things are chaotic all over the place!!  All the election and bailout crap is really wearing on me.  I cannot wait for November 4th.  Not just because it’s my birthday, but because I am so sick and tired of all the “campaigning”.  I just want this to be done!  These are very scary times.  I believe this is one of the most important elections in history and the outcome could be very gruesome if the wrong person gets in there.  And I can’t believe how many misguided people there are in this country who don’t know who that WRONG person is!  Why would anyone in this country want a President who REFUSES to salute our flag or sing our National Anthem?  That is THE MOST ABSURD thing that I have ever heard and it makes me so angry!  WAKE UP PEOPLE.  If you don’t absolutely love and respect this country and the freedoms it affords you then you should GET OUT!  You Don’t deserve the liberties that the great men and women of this country (past and present) have so selflessly provided for you.  Move to Iraq and see how that works our for you, but
