It may have something to do with the dog days of summer, or just unpredictable stress, that could explain what many of us are going through. To all of you I say, today and tomorrow are new beginnings. Let's make them that.
To coax a smile, I dedicate this little ditty to you.
With broken heart this whole day through,
I've grown depressed from missing you.
I long to touch you from afar,
And dream of being where you are.
I missed you in the morning light
As you departed from my sight.
I long to feel the ecstacy
Of your warm body close to me.
I missed you most at noon today,
And could not fight the tears away.
How could I miss you like I do?
I'm melancholy, sad and blue.
I missed you in the setting sun,
So I have bought a bigger gun;
And, you had best remember this.
Tomorrow, deer, I will not miss.
