time ~ life ~ time.

i hate time.

it walks too slow

when i want it to run fast.

it runs too fast

when i want it to walk slow.

~

here in lies the conundrum…

time is life.

life is time.

what am i saying?

~

i hate my life?

time…..passing….

~

one month is almost over ~

another month is about to arrive ~

two more months will bring the end of a year ~

followed by a new one in which i hope to survive*….

~

it seems time is moving faster and faster

as each year keeps passing me by

and

i can not help but wonder ~

how many more years

will

‘my life’

supply?

~

once upon a time…

*

i remember when Power Rangers ruled the world

and

light sabers were the toy of choice ~

*

Batman socks were not allowed to be washed

and

Darth Vader capes had to be worn.

*

hours were spent on the couch watching Star Wars

~ every movie ~

chapters one through six

and

we could never get enough of a T-Rex

eating everything in its midst.

*

~ now ~

it is about fantasy football,

college entrance exams

and

apps to download,

making some bucks

to buy some stuff

and

typing texts to friends upon friends.

*

*

yesterday,

he was my little baby ~

almost 9 lbs of sweet and cuddly coos

with barely a hair on his head,

chunky little cheeks

and

two eyes full of baby blue.

*

today,

he is 5′-11″,

long and lean with an athlete’s build,

two eyes of hazel,

muscular, hairy legs

and

in possession of some serious cooking skills.

*

I keep wondering when and how this all happened,

17 years

have come and gone,

but

what I do know for certain

is I could not be more proud,

of my baby boy

and

what he has become….

*

A_long_time_ago

once upon a very long time……

*

in the beginning

in the beginning…

*

at the present time

in cooking form – fave shorts, shirt, socks…

*

first day of work

Mr. Professional….

*

Happy Birthday Peyton!

My Little Man

~ Forever ~

the drive

º ∼ º

º ∼ º

the wheels of youth

roll slowly

or

so they seem

to those who are young

but

somewhere

between

what was

and

now is


the wheels have become

fleeting

inspired by driving ∼ my two boys ∼ everywhere ∼

always and forever

i will always

leave a light on

to guide you to my door

i will always

leave a window open

in which to climb inside

i will always

be here waiting

with arms open and a smile

and

i will always

be here loving you

 this i promise

until

the

end

of

time

fritter away

ˆ

some tears never fade

revealing stories and images

fires of dreams extinguished

life squandered by fear

passing of time

here and now is clear

what lies ahead is unknown

the heart will endure

fading…

no more does she see

the life inside which once thrived

fading into waves
