So long for now . . .

Brother took you home today.
I hugged you goodbye
and you did not want to let go.
My big, strong Daddy
has been reduced to skin and bones.
How small you are now.
I nestled my head into the softest part of your neck;
rivers of tears flowing . . .
yours and mine.
Will I see you again in the flesh?

"I wish I had a river
I could skate away on." **

Or a boat on a lake . . .
I am not fond of this time,
the changing of the guards.
My wish is for a
Notebook ending.
But
God is God,
and I am not.
And so, off you go,
home again with Mommy.
The sweetest Love Story
ever told.
So long for now.

The Living Live,
not just the best we can . . .
GLORIOUSLY
WONDROUSLY
MAGNIFICENTLY


Hot Diggity Dog
It's a WONDERFUL life.



** Lyrics by Joni Mitchell

Oh my goodness...you are a real poet. I just fool around with silly words but you actually say something deep! What a pleasure to have found you. Thanks for coming to tea. I hear that my link to Ulla is not working; just google her by entering Ullabenulla and she should pop up. Have a great day!! Anita

My heart is breaking for you Darling Deb. I assume your daddy lives far. I'll keep you tightly wrapped in prayer, but more then that He has you tightly wrapped in His arms.

Le printemps est magnifique, c'est un hymne à la vie qui renaît ! Qu'elles sont belles, ces fleurs mauves ! Un plaisir...

Joni Mitchell is beloved! Is there a hidden message I don't get? Either way, I hug you! xoxo

Deborah life can be very hard when we have to say goodbye to those we love.

But what an attitude your Dad gave you.

Hot diggity dog, life is wonderful.

Thinking of you.

Love Renee xoxox
