You Should Have Listened!

image

You know, you are my older brother.
Why didn’t you ever listen to Mother?
I remember the screaming well, don’t you?
You know you heard her, “Luv Ya Blue!”

Year after year you were defiant.
Never an Oiler, always a Giant.
You looked at Mom and boldly said
“I luv ya blue .. Blue and Red.”

You finally left Houston, had a chance to bolt
To support your new city and become a Colt
Support Peyton Manning? Oh dear God why?
You already had sweet little Eli.

So you stand there today,
confused and scratching your head,
Oh God Mom! Now they’re both Blue and Red
Let me remind you, my dear older brother
You really should have listened to mother

Luv Ya “Blue”. A rookie on our team?
No big brother this isn’t a dream
“Watt” just happened? Stop shaking your head
Cheer for Texans! Be a winner instead!

As much as I want to give you more grief,
There is for you a little relief.
I’ll give you some credit where credit is due,
You could have done like the others and be a Cowboy too.

Good Luck …you’re gonna need it!

Death’s Door

Devilish demons
Decadent dreams
Drowning drama
Daft days
Dismal death

Call Me

Call me conniving
Because I’m persuasive
Call me cully
Because I’m naive
Call me cunning
Because I’m witty
Call me crafty
Because I’m skilled
Call me cooky
Because I’m funny
Call me confident
Because I’m secure
Call me clever
Because I’m intelligent
Call me crazy
Well, because I am

Because

Because you love me
I feel secure
My past mistakes
Are just a blur
Because you love me
I can find my way
On days that I can’t
Together we pray
Because you love me
I have a reason
To laugh everyday
And enjoy the season
Because you love me
You accept me for me
We are who we are
What a great place to be
In response to the A to Z Challenge

In response to
the A to Z Challenge

Always

Ask and you shall receive
Anything that is mine belongs to you
All you have to do is open your eyes
And see what stands before you
Appreciation is needed
Adoration is welcomed
Admiration is not necessary
Acceptance is all I ask of you
A life without you is meaningless
Apart from you I am nothing
Always is the same as forever
Are you ready for that?

Because He Loves Me

Wedding

For My Husband on Valentine’s Day

The one who loves me. 

Lives with me.

And laughs with me.

You are not expected
To make me happy
But because you love me
I am happy
I smile
I laugh
And I play

You are not expected
To be my purpose for living
But because you love me
I have purpose
I am driven
I am accepted
And I am encouraged

You are not expected
To provide for me
But because you love me
I am provided for
I am safe
I am warm
And I am secure

You are not expected
To take care of my every need
But because you love me
My needs are met
I have a friend
I have a lover
And I have a confidant

You are not expected
To share my feelings
But because you love me
You understand my feelings
I can cry
I can scream
And I can isolate myself

You are not expected
To make me a priority
But because you love me
I am a priority
I am honored
I am respected
And I am adored

You are not expected
To cook for me
….. let’s not get carried away

I have no need to pressure you
With any ridiculous expectations
Because you go above and beyond
Any expectation I could ever have

Because you love me

I still waited …

speakeasy1

I allowed him into my brainibus
and let down the guard to my hearticuss

He smiled and said we were on autonever
Stupid me, I believed the assalever

Pardon my contrafibularities
There are simply no hilarities

We can all relate to the moronkaneller
He’s just another frankenfeller

Yet still, I sat there and waited, but he never came back

Event Update

As a Zero to Hero participant my 24th task to visit five other participants in the event you chose with task 22 and leave at least two comments. (Read and comment more if you can!)   The following are the events I chose.  The Speakeasy does not start again until Sunday, so I will have to wait on this one and do it tomorrow.   I have not decided if I want to commit to the Daily Wisdom event yet.   Six more days of Zero to Hero and then I can get back to blogging ….

Blog Events

As a Zero to Hero participant my 22nd task is to find a blogging event and throw my hat into the ring.   I visited some of the blogging events at the Blog Event Listings. I think I may take a crack at a couple of them, but I will probably wait until the Zero to Hero Challenge is over.
