Knowing

ron and chase

The baby frowns.

There’s a delicate balance of sorrow and joy on my brothers face.

 If there’s  any kind of knowing after cancer takes him,

missing his little grandsons life unfolding will surely be his greatest regret.

This photo breaks my heart.

Complete This Thought

Start the sentence with I, add one of these words or phrases, and dig deep to finish the thought:…..am, want, have, wish, hate, fear, hear, search, wonder, regret, love, ache, always, usually, am not, dance, sing, never, rarely, cry, am not always, lose, am confused, need, should, dream…

Feel free to cut and paste and complete it any way you want.  I was going to do a sentence for each of them, but this is what happened instead.  Some muse or other took over and a kind of poetry happened.

What Am I?

I am old

But I want to stay young forever.

I have everything I need and yet

I wish for more.

I hate nothing but hate itself

And fear what it can do.

I hear only what I want to hear

And tune out all the rest.

I search inside for peace

And wonder if this is what it feels like.

Regretting nothing, loving fiercely,

Aching for time to slow down

While I’m running out of it.

Usually life makes me happy.

I am not complaining.

Even though I dance awkwardly

And sing off-key.

I never can stay sad for long

And rarely cry about anything

But I am not always brave.

I lose focus and become confused.

I need the quiet to bring things back

So I should appreciate it when it’s all around me.

Sometimes I dream so hard I can’t wake up.

Losing Touch

You don’t know what’s going on

You’ve been away for far too long

You can’t come back and think you are still mine

You’re out of touch, my baby

My poor discarded baby

I said, baby, baby, baby, you’re out of time

(The Rolling Stones)

Do you have any friends you regret not keeping in touch with?

Nope.

If we lost touch with eachother there’s no doubt lots of reasons for that and I don’t have time to dwell on why.

Regret is a useless emotion and a waste of time. It will make you crazy.

So cut it out! Stop, right now, or you’ll end up regretting your regrets.

I’m trying to concentrate on the people who are in my life today so there won’t be any reason for regrets tomorrow.
