We're All just Fine...

...... thanks for asking....



I’ve always yearned for more out of life,

But not with all the stress and strife….

Although I set goals maybe higher than I should

It sometimes appears to others… as maybe it could…

That what I have accomplished.. is easy for me…

But ...alas what others see, may not always be..…

The long hours of dealing with life and death…

Only made me stronger...as I take the next breath.

Being away from you all, was the price I paid..

But, it was a decision that I had made….

To keep moving on to the next level of time…

Would insure that in life ,we would all be just fine…

We’ve had our ups. .and we’ve had our downs..

We’ve had our smiles and we had our frowns….

But through it all the most important thing to me…

Is we’re still together…my Family and me….
