Today is a blue day

 Today is a blue day

not the blue of a summer sky

not the blue of the Mediterranean

not the blue of bluebells in the greenest of meadows

This blue is almost grey

the grey of a stormy sky

the grey just before dawn in mid winter of the dreariest day of the year

the grey that wrings tears from your eye

for no apparent reason at all

Today is a blue day

My smile is gone.

“My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.” – Maya Angelou

I’ll Cry Later ~ A poem I wrote long ago

My sista is leaving me today. This morning to be exact
she’s leaving
she’s moving far away from me
It hurts but I can’t say so
Why?
because she’s happy, she’s in love

My sista is leaving me today. This morning to be exact
she’s leaving
going an airfare away, not too far
but far enough
It hurts but I can’t say so
Why?
because he loves her too, he needs her now

My sista is leaving me today, this morning to be exact
she’s leaving today – he’s coming to take her away
going far away
It hurts but I can’t say so
Why?
because I can’t send her on her way with sadness
with tears, with sorrow.

She’ll miss me, I know she will
but not today, not tomorrow
she needs her smiles today, for him
He thrives on her beautiful smiles
She’ll miss me, I know she will

My sista is leaving me today, this morning to be exact
she’s leaving
she’s moving far away from me
It hurts but I can’t say so
Why?
because she’s getting a love that a sister cannot give
She’s getting a lifetime of happiness
A lifetime of support – A lifetime of love, affection, trust & respect…..
The way God intended it to be

My sista is leaving me today, going far away
not too far – only an airfare away
She’s leaving, he’s taking her today
I won’t cry
Why?
because he loves her so, with all his heart and soul
She doesn’t need me anymore
She’s in good hands, well cared for and loved

My sista is leaving me today
he took my sista away from me
But I rejoice in my new-found Brother
whom I love and Deeply Respect
He came today and took her away
….and I’m happy.

God bless them, keep them safe
Multiply their love and keep them close to you – Amen

My sista left me today.
I’ll cry later.
Today I will smile for her.
