    An Unfinished Business

    Today I will sit and listen, To all they have to say; Laughing and talking with them, I will enjoy our special day. Soon they will be grown up, And I shall be alone and old; Oh! How I will miss them, Our house will feel so cold. If only I could hold them, Like a baby still in my...

    I Like To Write

    It may be eccentric writing...or silly...or serious...or angry...but however I choose, I feel I have the right to that self-expression.  I enjoy it...but as a person who struggles with a "people-pleasing" instinct, it's hard sometimes to write just for me.  Some folks...

    I know you like as well

    as I know myself. I know the many emotions that change your face and the manner in which you carry yourself. I feel the presence of your writhing anger; the distraught sadness; the ebbing of all stress as it washes away. Your anxiety strangles the words from my mouth and resists...
