If I Should Die Today...

I ran this little ditty off a few days ago and thought some of you might enjoy it. It ain't something I am planning for anytime soon, but who knows. Enjoy...

If I Should Die Today (What Would I Leave Behind)

If I should die today,
I'd leave behind a world I never made;
I'd leave a place where no one else has been,-
A place where memories would never fade.

If I should die today,
I'd leave behind things I alone would know,-
Things that a difference make to no one else.
I'd leave a place where no one else could go.

If I should die today,
I'd not be sad or wondering about what I should say;

I'd love and leave a shining world and all there is about it;
I'd love it and I'd show it; I'd take off and fly without it,-
I'd wear a cloak of happiness;

If I should die today.

The Couple...(Written By a Fly On the Wall)

This is a tribute to the up-coming Valentines Day as seen by a fly on the wall.

The Couple...

Just look at them, the two old people who live in this house.
They're up in their seventies, but acting like two kids of eight or ten.

You'd think they'd be a bit more settled, more grown up and sober
Instead of going on about each other, just as they must have back when

They carried their lunch buckets and wondered if the other one would trade,
Would give up a peanut butter for a ham and cheese the others' mother made.

He acts as if he has to touch her every time she's near enough to touch;
And she's about as bad; she's giddy, too, like him, but not nearly as much.

Oh, look! He's handing her a slip of paper; I about can read it from up here.
There are some scribbled words there and a figure drawn across it of some kind.

It looks just like a heart that has an arrow that has pierced it through the middle
And some silly words that only say from him to her,
"I love you; will you be my Valentine?"

Oh, look! Now they're kissing!! 'blush' :-*
