Men, men, what would I do without them?
I am blessed with many good men in my life: Sons, Grand-sons, Brother, Brothers-in-law, Nephews, Pastor, and Friends – And most of all, my husband, Sammy.
Without him —-
Instead of picking up socks, I could paint some pretty rocks.
Instead of tissues for his sneezing nose, I could buy myself a lovely rose.
Instead of singing in a duo, I’d have to do a solo.
Instead of mending torn britches, I could knit some pretty stitches.
Instead of his whistle on the patio, I’d just have the radio.
Instead of having a littered couch, I could have a neat-nik house.
Instead of hearing the door open, I’d sit here very lonesome.
