From butterflies in spiders webs To wandering dogs down country roads These are just some of the deeds Of rescue She has done And of course She rescued my heart From certain single life And ensconced it in A loving family home
One is a mother – caring and fierce Two is wife with perceptions that pierce Three is a woman Kind and strong Four is a friend to help me along Five is the lover tender and sweet All are in one perfect – petite One beautiful and loving wife The five with whom I will spend my life
First of all – many thanks for all the birthday wishes – this is for my friends and family reading this via Facebook. I haven’t had the time to respond. It has been a very very stressful week at work with all kinds of stuff going on from resignations to shareholder meetings to urgent product development and website updates. I have been totally snowed under and stressed out so have neglected everything else in life. On top of that I have had the heaviest head cold ever!
So now taking a deep breath – before it all begins again.
I have to thank my lovely wife too – for putting up with me during these periods. I have been grumpy to say the least.
The other person I have to thank is my eldest son as he has indirectly kept my spirits buoyed. Lately he had really got into Minecraft. and he watched YouTube videos of other people playing them and other games even more. He stumbled on one of a skating game where the people playing were not actually very good and it ended up being more about how much carnage they could cause by falling off.
While I was stressed out working from home in the evenings while dealing with a number of issues and pressures – it was a magical lift to the spirits to hear him in the background laughing his head off at their antics. Real belly laughs. There’s no better tonic.
So this weekend, I will try an relax and get back to some writing!
From butterflies in spiders webs
To wandering dogs down country roads
These are just some of the deeds
She has done
And of course
She rescued my heart
From certain single life
And ensconced it in
A loving family home
Standing on a high hill
Green fields rolling away beneath my feet
Off into the hazy horizon.
Strong breeze blowing through my hair
It exhilarates me – makes me feel
I could step forward and fly
It is nothing to the way you make me feel
Laying in the sun
In the lush deep grass
Sparkles dancing on the water
Blue skies in great expanse arching high
Warms me – happiness safe in my heart
Cold compared to the warmth you bring
A word of praise from peers
Or reward for long hard work
A beer after a trying day
Shoring up my worth
Nothing makes me better – more the man I should be
Than having you by my side forever
