My Pain That I fear Is In My Heart Oh Dear

Why Are You Here ?

It was a day with little excitement but not a bad one at that

All of a sudden I felt an unusual pain in my chest

A sharp pain but not one that I would ever expect

I took a second and reached my hand over my heart

I know what this could be and luckily it went away by the count of three

What to do and what not to do

There are so many questions that always confuse my thinking

I am healthy right

I am making better choices than before

Both my father and my uncle have died of heart disease need I say more

So lets begin there

They were older and I am still young

What would I do if my time was up

I could do nothing but say it was truely wonderful from start to finish

I came into this world crying and left with a bang

My whole world came to an instant stop

What mattered most wasn't even a thought

I am blessed to have seen the light of day

I have watched the rain skip across the leaves

Many times the wind has played with their friends the trees

When the snow comes it turns the whole world white

What a pure and peaceful sight

Even when the hail pounds the ground like nails

There is something special

So special because I am part of it

Just at the right time and the right place

So many animals have come out of hiding to greet me hello

Who woud not want another day as happy as the ones I have seen and got to know

Then there all the special people that have entered in and out of my life

Like I was a revolving door and the only way in or out was through me

I always see you in passing happy or sad

In a hurry or moving slow

Giving me a wonderful hello or just a breeze that tickled my toes

I know you and you know me

That is all that counts

I think of my family

As crazy and mixed up as it may be

I love them with all my heart

The same hereditary heart that gave me my start

Then there is my wife that I love each day

She will find a way to curse and complain

I search for a way to Laugh and Exclaim

Life doesn't get any better than this

All the excitement of any sports Super Bowl Game

You are my home team and don't give up so easy

A few good passes would sure please me

If we win or lose

We played together with everything our bodies could provide

There were many times we ached and many more times we forgot

I remember only the good times since they curled my toes and made my hair stand straight up

You would say what hair

I would say I seen it a minute ago

Life has a way to even the score

I was never bored and always looked for more

Sometimes I cried and sometimes I thought quietly why?

It is our pets who we have pampered like children

Keeping us on edge and making our life difficult

We never had to dress them or take them to school

It is a good thing because we would of dressed them funny and they would have always been late

As we watched other families grow by leaps and bounds

Ours was just the two of us and a secret love that we have found

They say you can't change life but who is they anyway

I am here just to have fun and pretend each day I am gambling on the dogs

Run that's all you have to do is run run run !!!

We always have a choice to live my life, delving deeper perhaps on what was the cause of the heart ailment than merely blaming it on genes...perhaps each gene has a certain genogram to follow but there is always a deeper cause to it...yes, you're still young and you can still live a healthy, happy life...God bless...
