“NO SURPRISE!” a poem Wednesday: July 3, 2019
Things-are hard and sharp! and-things-are smooth and soft,
And there are times, you-now, when you’ve had enough,
And when you question “Why,” and when you cry out loud,
And when you have The Angst – REMEMBER! I am proud!
I AM proud of YOU and [I] like being with you lots,
So don’t “lose your faith,” for-we-CAN-“connect the dots,”

Your-wonder-ful-ly-silly-boo-hoo-hoo-ey-perfect-crying-pout! 🙂 – Whew!
And – what-cha think that I would do, if you were not around?!
Well, you-know I’d-just shrivel-up! – They’d bury me in the ground,
And, in the ground, I’d dream of you – forever and a day!
But-I’m-NOT-there, so-I-can-hold-your-hand, and we’ll-both-shout: “Hooray!”
We’ll laugh-at-The-World of Hard & Soft – & Smooth and Sharp – & “Schizo!”
So, despite-some-days with-shades-of-gray, I STILL SAY: “Honey, it’s O –
K-to-go-another-day – and gaze [deeply] in-to your eyes,
And – WE MIGHT GO A ZILLION YEARS! (pause) [and]-to-me-that’d-be:
