Is this the end of the road-- A Lady and her Husband reaching that age
Dedicated to all seniors and their struggle to survive in this unfair world...for them. This is the story of an old lady who's husband is in bed and refuses to go to the Hospital.
I'm just seventy nine
and I feel the years on my shoulders
I'm just done clearing up my mind
Hubby and me met since I was thirteen
and he was a man with strong hands
oh my...oh my..!
We Married on valentine's day back in 59
Sorry if my heart feels those years again
need some air,
since those years bring memories of yesterday
My voice changes when I remember the
days down the beach next to Ausbury Park
oh my..! he kissed me that night
behind the Ferris wheel
was so frightened, cause it was so dark...
I can actually write my whole life here
If you bare with me
but have to go to the point
Mr. cross has to move on
Today my husband is so sick
alzheimer's is catching on
told him to wake up and get checked on
he just want to sleep and that reminds me of
something becoming out of control
My investments of a lifetime
plummeted to almost none
My social security is just my only
mean of income
stock market was not my best option
30 years of bonds went just awfully wrong
back to my situation
leave this chat for politicians
my hubby is leaving me alone
he doesn't mean to but one day he will be gone
My heart is trying to cope with him
is hard..is..you know what I mean
Our kids are grown
and have problems of their own
most of them divorced
not like us..! life has gotten worse
Every morning I watch over my husband
I know is hard to talk to him anymore
no more roses galore
no more sweet kisses like before
Is the third week he would'nt wake up for nothing
I feel in despair..numb and who cares?
my voice at times is feeble
not strong enough to become devilish
At times I feel young and want to have fun
but turn around and my hips won't respond
So much knowledge down the drain
Is hard to keep up with Mr. Pain
Oh sorry this is a hub
and can't help it you know..?
would take me pages
to let you know about my coming of ages
But I decided to lay down next to him
and see in our dreams that fall and that rain
Wish was a dream
close, my eyes and wake up in paradise
wait a minute...this is paradise!
My hubby is wearing his army suit
the one he wore to marry his muse
A voice from nowhere tells us,
"Your time has come"
We smile and accept this time around
running to see that fall where kisses will abound
Our time has become
a life with so much fun
we are together in Heaven
this time will be forever...
