When Time Stood Still

Updated on October 11, 2014

Good Morning Sunshine

Allow me

To take you on a little trip

Where good times are having fun with family

It doesn't stop there

It's when happiness can not measured it is lived

They may start out with a quiet rides in a car

Ending with laughing nonstop at a Kentucky Fried Chicken drive thru

I can't put my finger on it

Watching the latest movie with a little touch of Shark Tank both keeping me wondering

Who does that ?

Every day may not be everything you want it to be

But if you keep putting your best foot forward

Somewhere in the middle of it all

You might just be spending an afternoon winning at a Casino like my niece

Or even better having so much fun and wishing you had won

With the weather a little bit cooler

Cantaloupe with whipped cream for a late night snack

If you live here in Maine or sweet North Carolina

Life never stops

First of all I think it keeps getting better

I am here now trying to recap the high points of my day

Checking a few things on the computer

In between checking my phone for time or a quick look on line

It's not every day

You can have a day like today

Where even our cat Charlotte causes no trouble

If I could say anything

Nothing would make me feel any better

Hearing those final words

Good night I'm fine thanks anyway

Today will be forgotten

Tomorrow will come

It doesn't take me long

To fall asleep to a quiet little chirp

Dreaming of many days that end up this same way

As my head sinks slowly into my pillow

All my problems seem miles and miles away

Until the time will come where they will be solved one by one

      I have had days like that, when everything just seems to fall in place, but not enough of them.

      Good words

      Gypsy Rose Lee Finding comfort in the good times and taking the time by expanding further. All my energy and thoughts are put to good use.Feeling great and making good feelings become as natural as breathing. Charlotte loves her new friend. She is too lazy to move but I can hear it when she purrs. Thank you very much for reading and sharing

      Enjoyed this. Yes, I too look forward to the day when my troubles just melt away. In sleep I can pretend they don't exist and my dreams give me lots of hope and my cat Sid is always there to nudge me awake with his wet cold nose. Sid sends sincere meows to Charlotte. Hope you have a great and productive week.

      I loved the tone of this poem. Peaceful. Reading it made me feel nostalgic as I found myself going back in time as memories came to me of an easier time with days like these. Excellent writing!
