Coffee time with Late Bloomer

Margaret ~ Sweet SOTU

by Debi Pick Marquette

Most will call her Margaret, but her pen name is Late Bloomer

When meeting her you won't forget her lovely sense of humor

It started 'bout a year ago; she read some posts of mine 

I read her back, amazed us so, things started to align

The first Time that I heard this phrase, it came to me from you

"And we've been using it since then, my Sweet SOTU"

We all have a story, but at times they're hard to share

We turned some into glory, when we show how much we care

All these similarities and still the same reply. 

These awesome same hilarities that neither could deny

Every time we talked, it seemed like we found something new

"We took the path God led and called it Sweet SOTU"

One big difference that I see, is where we both came from 

Her, Manhattan, NYC ~ I'm her Minnesota chum

I've three children, so does she, so we keep playing the game

Same age within eight months are we; our husband's are the same

I love our chats with coffee, only so much we can do

"So that's what I look forward to, my Sweet SOTU

So many ways and many things; just two peas in a pod

I have so many blessings, and for her I thank you, God

She may not write like she once did, but has great information 

But reviews us all the time, yet barely gets a nomination

And from the heart, we say it straight; we don't need to rehearse 

"After all we are Sweet Sisters of this (great big) Universe"



All lines (except SOTU stanzas) have internal and end rhyme
