The moment I open up my single eye
Your shadow has been a threatening spy
I do not want to meet you yet
Until I reach my treasured goal.
I know, you are always thinking of me
Perhaps, wanting me tomorrow, the next day or just now
I am not yet ready, not ready yet to see you
For I enjoy what life is and will be coming into view.
I have seen you in the neighborhood
Then , you travelled nearer to my grandpa
He was as silent as an empty field
Your silence made him more quiet and calm.
I know, I will be seeing you too soon again with other people
I am not excited; you make my heart tremble
Oh Death! Oh death!
Please meet me at the right time.
One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.
The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the authors life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
