Cuppa

I HAVE FELT THE LOSS OF LOVED ONES TO THE AFTERLIFE

BUT I AM GLAD TO HAVE KNOWN SUCH FINE COMPANY

THAN TO NEVER TO HAVE KNOWN THEIR LOVE.

TO IMAGINE MY LIFE NOT TO HAVE BEEN TOUCHED

BY THEIR LOVE WOULD BE A GREATER LOSS.

I BELIEVE WE WILL MEET AGAIN, MAY THE UNIVERSE

GRANT MY HEART THIS ONE BOON.

IF I AM WRONG, APOLOGIES BUT LET ME LIVE IT FOR NOW.

ALSO, I MET THIS SPIRITUALIST I COULD SWEAR SHE WOULD

HAVE THEM FOR A CUPPA TO TELL THEM ALL MY BUSINESS.

THE NIGHT BEFORE WE MET.

Ain’t life grand

Last year my mental health hit the rocks.

Today I did my third week walk/run.

Another stepping stone in my physical/mental health.

My voices roared and bellowed I am a evil for this and that.

I still reckon I am a nice guy.

They stab at my body expressing their pain, it hurts.

But I look at the sky it is blue the clouds are beautiful white.

I give thanks.

I think of a quote I heard once life is grand even racked with misery and doubt.

I smile I almost cry in joy at the madness and beauty of it all.

The sweat rolls off my brow.

For a while it is grand to be mad again.

I smile.
