Oh these times of troubled waters

Updated on April 22, 2014

Years of loving change things

The bad is still there it is just how we deal with it.

The good news about love is that you have real deep feelings, the bad thing about love is that you have real deep feelings.

A simple man's poem

Problems with this and problems with that

One too skinny the other too fat

One works to much and the other too little

Things we know are not worth the spittle.

That is how we could both feel and act

But love is there and it is a natural fact

She loves me and I love her

Troubles soon fade into a blur

Our young son brings smiles to our faces

Anger and frustration he soon replaces

Yes we love each other don’t you know

Troubles will come and trouble will go

But our love survives all hurricanes

Even survives the flooding rains

To those of you who do not know this kind of love

I pray you now, quickly pray for it from above.

Now how could you stay mad at her.

Not one raised voice ever in front of that boy.
Not one raised voice ever in front of that boy. | Source

The latest "trouble" was over money.

Now that is just plain funny.

Great Song

She is the rose

I am the granite
I am the granite | Source

      Thank you much Swalia, I don't do much poetry as my skill set is limited so it means a lot that you came by to read and comment.

      thank you Mr. Singh, for commenting. I do not do a lot of "nice", it feels good from time to time. And thank you for that great article on India and Tibet --- found here: http://mg-singh.hubpages.com/hub/How-India-lost-it...

      Thank you Ed, we keep on plugging away -- funny but in real life, I grow the roses and she actually sells granite flooring and counters for a living.
