Forward go

Updated on November 11, 2015

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.

Marshall History.

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.

Still here.

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 to say,we are all looking forward to making new memories with our new family member.

Our boy.

Keeps well.

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 one likes to see any animal suffer any sort of's hoping the good health fairy watches over her.
