I've Got A Date With The Blues

April Poetry Month Poem 25

Here comes another sleepless night

Ain't got my baby to hold me tight

Guess there's no need to take off my shoes

I've got, got me a date with the blues


The sun keeps on rising and going down

Lonesome ain't leaving

Keeps hanging around

Got me a heart ache I'm trying to lose

I've got, got me a date with the blues


Slowdown memories, the trouble you make

Dreaming don't hurt me like being awake

Sandman, I'm counting on you

I've got, got me a date with the blues


I'm keeping steady company

Living with bygone misery

Sunshine, waiting on you

I've got, got me a date with the blues

      For some of it I take him along. For things like pens, pcleins, cases, markers, binders etc I have him pick out what he likes. For the clothes I go alone, he is only 10 and it will not be long before he insists on picking out his own.;0)

      This was great using BB King on here, the greatest guitarist of all time. It just got everything in the grove for your lyrics....rock on!

      Love it. Thoroughly enjoyed the video. If we give doggy kisses to you and B.B. King, you can quit having the blues, but keep on singing and poetry-ing, please.

      Again loved the video. Still dancing in my seat. Once again you have brightened my day even while writing about the blues.

      This was so catchy, Ann, I was singing the words. Good thing no one was listening though - my voice could awake the dead. :)
