Over and over.
each day my routine is the same
get up with kids,neverending life game
same day notions,put on same lotions
buy the same sprays,use on alternate days.
eat the same breakfast,eat the same lunch
hoping never to be hit with a sucker punch.
out in the car,hit the same shops
shoplifters caught with familiar cops.
back home for coffee,rest up a while
did the same thing yesterday,going over the same mile.
late evening watch TV,then fill the sink
same thing yesterday,really makes you think.
am I so boring for the routine,am I seen as a bore
cause I do occasionally enjoy a chore.
i like to wash dishes,Hoover and clean up
have to have coffee,in the cleanest cup.
pernickety to some,normal for me
i might go wild,have the occasional cup of tea.
look after my five girls,help out my wife if needed
do my daily duty,in the Dad league,am I seeded?
i hit my bed in the early hours of the morning
curse my insomnia,maybe it's a warning.
never sleep for a full night,always wake up
at least three times,have another cup.
watch the minutes on the ever irritating clock
even tempted at 4, to go for a walk.
eventually I dose off,sleep for an hour
hit the water,refreshing shower.
that's my day,the twenty four hours
in comparison to most,a boring 24 hours.
this wee girl has given me new hope
after losing Jake,found it hard to cope.
shes due to come to my home next week
happiness and joy,is all we seek.
love me and be loyal,I'll be the same
we will get on like a team,we will play the game.
New family member.
jake played a huge part,of making us a team
he was the glue in the family seem.
watch us fight and argue,never jumped in
get angry with each other,quite often a sin
put up with all us nutters,gave us comfort when sad
now he's gone,makes me kinda mad.
truly integral,heart felt and crucial part
unfortunately his heart chose to depart.
Never be forgotten.
hes still here in spirit
i can feel him near
nomally these things would install some fear.
not in this case,I encourage his presence
i feel his warmth,I feel his essence.
he will always be here,hope he will never leave
terrible feeling when we all have to grieve.
he is here more than ever
we feel him come near
the feeling of love
can't shed a tear.
traumatic,senseless,harsh and obscene
this travesty,this thing,is horrifically unclean.
Memories are good.
a new dog can never replace what we had with our old dog,but we can make special new memories to cherish with the new dog.she's a new puppy,full of life and craziness,you can't help but laugh at new puppies insanity.they're always on the go.roughly 100 miles an hour all day long to the inevitable crash to sleep.safe to say,we are all looking forward to making new memories with our new family member.
I've had one too many trips to the Vets surgery.i hope we have less with the new addition.we can only hope she keeps in good health for a very long time.no one likes to see any animal suffer any sort of pain.here's hoping the good health fairy watches over her.
