Jellybean taste test

image

 

My daughter is home from a sleepover.
As a surprise, I got her some jelly beans,
which she asked for a few days ago.
We are now having a jelly bean ‘taste off’!
There are a few flavors she claims to not like but I’m not picky, I’ll eat ’em all.

So are you into jelly beans?
Do you have a specific flavor of preference?
Or are you like me and would devour them all?

I love you more than you know

image

 

Dear munchkin,
Yesterday, I enjoyed spending
a wonderful ‘Summer in March’
afternoon with you.

We sat by the pond
as we had a lovely snack.
You frolicking in the sun
while I sat in the shade.

We had ice cream before dinner
which was yumtastic!
We ate tater tots and fish sticks after
and I forgot all about the vegetables.
I’m sure you were delighted
by my absent mindedness!

We watched movies
then scampered to bed
when the power went out
during the thunderstorm.

Today I have fond memories
of our time together.
Thank you for being the bright part
of an otherwise sad day.

I love you more than you know.
-Mom-

Fighting back the tears

image

 

A sad song plays on the radio.
She fights back the tears
while trying to smile
at her next customers.

The lovely couple
is oblivious to her pain.
They’re madly in love
oozing affection for each other.

She wants to throw up.
This is the last thing
she needs to see.
Is this a cruel joke?

How ironic that
she’s surrounded
by so many people
but yet feels so alone.

This hurts too much

image

 

I don’t want to be
‘in love’ with you anymore.
This hurts too much.
Love isn’t supposed to feel like this.
I know this will seem absurd
but I pray that God please
take my love for you away.
This agony is killing me.
