In The Mood Then Your Not

Updated on February 13, 2014

I Don't Understand It

I can wait

I can also scratch my head and wonder

One minute all systems go

Next time later there is a red light

I don't know which to do laugh or cry

Realizing time was short

We both agreed to hold off on love to later

Actually you said it and I accepted the truth

We have to go to work and we can't be late

So you gave me a very convincing later

Well all day at work one reoccurring thought kept coming back

Hold on just a little longer

The hours will go by before I know it

I will keep busy

Being so excited like a kid in a candy store

So many flavors and it is so hard to decide

Then finally both our jobs our finished and we head home

I am now beaming with excitement

Oh I really want to get home fast

Then out of the blue my wife says

I am really tired

Can it wait

What ?

You got to be joking

I could go without sleeping and eating

Well off to bed you go

Off to write I go

Clearing my mind and refocussing on life's challenges

Each day is filled with this wonderful give and take

I know I am a little high strung and very creative

So my energy level is always reaching for more

My wife is very happy doing so many things to

A little more well rounded and less focused on just one thing

So in the future wouldn't it be grand

if she was more like me and I was more like her

Then she would be left waiting and I would be off in dreamland to explore

      Gypsy Rose Lee Feeling the wonderful feelings of being together and sharing endless love is well worth it. Luckily those periods of not now honey or later are few. They sure make us think how great we have it ninety percent of the time. Thank you for your honesty and sharing on so many of my hubs. Have a wonderful day.

      So very true. There are times it's hit and miss around here too. I get sleepy in the afternoons and I really want to sleep. Then I work late on the PC and he's already sleeping etc. But we manage to make up for it as long as all the stars are correctly aligned.

      DDE I know how long it takes me just to think up ideas. Sometimes hours just to put my thoughts on paper. Then rewrite after rewrite until I get my story where I want it to be. Even then if I am not careful I may never complete it and publish it. When I see the research you have done on so many topics I am excited and to read on and on. Keep up your incredible work. Thank you for making time for me in your busy schedule. God bless. I am just a click away.

      DDE I come across so many situations where I can turn to your hubs for good advice. I just have to understand and have patience and remember Rome wasn't built in a day. That slows me down and keeps my mind preoccupied until we both have quality time together. Thank you for reading and sharing your insight and your opinion. I am so grateful to have both. Have a beautiful morning and may we have many discussions and a great variety of topics to always explore and enjoy.
