The Doorbell Rings

Updated on November 26, 2010

Who Could It Be ?

I am alone late at night

Only my two cats and me

I am sitting here typing on the computer and all of a sudden

Both cats went frantic from the noise they heard

I got up slowly shocked and surprised

As I looked out the back door

Are sensor light hadn't gone on

I looked out again and could not see anything

Then a shadow in the darkness gave a flicker of light

A soft voice spoke

I am the ghost of the heavens to take you away

What do you mean as I got a little choked up ?

Your time is up

But I still don't understand ?

This is the end of the line

This is your final curtain call

Thats all folks

This has to be some kind of practical joke

Come on we don't have all night you know

I'm being kind lets get a move on

I can't be late

What if I don't go

Do you really want to try my patience

Haven't I been nice enough

How would you like someone doing it to you

I didn't sneak in the middle of the night

And wake you in the middle of a dream or something

I didn't make you scream in pain

I didn't make you end up in a car crash with your body all mangled

Its not like you have to pack a bag or anything

Just put one foot in front of the other

And soon you'll be walking across the flooooooor......

Just put one foot in front of the other

And soon you'll be walking through that dooooorr.......

Well don't I get to say good bye to the ones I love

I think you have been watching too much of the ghost whisper on t.v.

I new as soon as they put that on t.v. there was going to be trouble

It was so much better back in the day when Michael Landon played in Highway To Heaven

At least then I just said come and people would line up like sheep

They would follow

No questions asked

He made it easy for us

Now they question everything thanks to Forensic Files

What are you looking for now ?

I can't believe you want to put your sneakers on

I got it

When you get where you are going

You want to go for a run

I thought this job was going to be easy

Your number was pulled and here I am

So when your time is up you can go the easy way or the hard way

But either way your going

I will give other people fair warning

Live each day as if it was your last

Because one day you will be right

And hope and pray you get me

Because others like to have more fun

They like to see blood and guts and lots of struggling

Even some ghosts have a sick sense of humor

So I am on my merry way

Where I stop only the dead will know

By then they won't have anytime to change

Keep moving keep moving and no we dont have time to stop for a cup of joe

      Joy56 I think we all are a little off our rocker.Maybe that is what really makes the world go round.I think Thanksgivng doesn't have to be just a special holiday we celebrate.But a time we just give thanks for everything in our lives together.Not just by ourselves.They say United we stand divided we fall.My heart goes out to everyone that is struggling.I think we can recover know matter how troublesome it make look.Have faith in God and ourselves to press on.There will be greater times ahead I am willing to bet my house on it.I miss talking to you.But work has been short handed and I am tryng to find my voice in writing.It takes so much time.So I write and write and write.I feel this is where I should be in my life.Thanks for all your help and support.I will talk real sooooon.Your crazy son....

One of a kind and just a little out of his mind.I have got my lonely start on the Hub Pages where no one else would give me a try.I am forever thankful and greatful for those who invented something so cool that will allow me to write about passion and sadness in the same breath.I appreciate all the comments I have recieved and I want you to know I am super pleased!!!I have many dreams and many sorrows. I will never forget when friends who honestly care spend their precious time to help others on the Hub Pages.So I am proud to say I really and truely want to always write on the Hub Pages who gave me a wounded bird flight.Thanks for Being you.

      Wow pretty good and yesterday I thought I was going, I kept getting worse and worse and I couldn't say what, but hours after I got up I walked by the medicine I should take when I get up! Thankfully.
