Our Day~1~14~'08...Poem: My Love
Today was our monthly meeting for lunch with some of the old guys and wives from Charles' past years as a policeman in So. Dade Co- Miami, Fl. . We have been doing this for a long while...and we never know who might turn up- or how many there might be.
This time the group was very small but it was nice for the guys to get together. Charles and I missed the December luncheon, due to the holiday preparations- etc.
We didn't break the camera! It's fine!
(the old farm folks~ Junie & Charlie)
~A poem I wrote - 2006 ~~~ another re-run~
These years we’ve been together,
down this road of life…
through calm or stormy weather…
through the pain and strife…
through the happiest of seasons that, so,
out weigh the rest…
sharing what we’ve treasured…
time has been our test!
Both learning, as time passes,
the craft of compromise…
how, overtime, things change a bit,
may take us by surprise.
Sometimes change feels threatening,
seems like the winter’s wind
that howls in it’s persistence,
impatient to come in.
Changes are just ripples,
can’t touch us - you must know-
or break the bond created,
all those years ago.
