If only I could buy some time

I wish I had been told how it would be when I got this old.

I would really have let myself feel more love. In my condition the time left is just not enough!

They say I am not someone they can save. They say I should plan for my grave.

I really thought I had time to live some more!

But with work as my priority I never explored what love could have offered me?

I made no friends and I have no family

I have a weak heart and I can barely breathe. I’m dying alone and will then be 6 feet beneath.

During my life I could buy it all; cars, houses, fancy clothes from the mall.

Oh there were some that tried to get close to me. I couldn’t trust them though because they wanted to steal from me.

Oh so I thought

I wish I could return everything I bought

Just to have at least one friend

To hold my hand now at the end

Last breath I shall take right now

If only I could do it all again somehow

Last sigh

Goodbye

Happy New Year my beautiful readers. What will we do different this year? While we plan to make more tangible riches let’s not forget about the riches of the soul- peace, integrity, contentment. Money can buy many things but it can’t buy us more time at the end. Live life well! Sending you love and hugs from Brooklyn.

To vaccine/booster or nah?

In the immune system you can trust

But vaccination and boosters you must get

Covid 19 is still here with us

I want no one to have regrets

Hospital bed, sedation, and perhaps intubation

Is what might occur if you have hesitation.

So please get vaccinated today

Cause this virus isn’t just going away

When it keeps having someone else to infect

Some of you might find all of this quite amusing

No to the vaccine yes I know it’s your choosing

But don’t be shocked when it’s you it detects

The numbers are rising. Wear a mask cause this is real. Get the booster to get 80% protection. Trust me getting Covid when vaccinated you do way better than if not vaccinated. I work in the medical field. Very sad indeed. Getting sick and recovering is preferred to getting sick and dying without friends or family in a hospital. These are the facts.

I send you hugs from Brooklyn.

Love Guady G

I Give Thanks

Tomorrow before I take a seat

Before I even start to eat

I’ll be thinking of you

I’m tremendously grateful for you

I may not know the future

But of one thing I’m very sure

I’m so happy we had the opportunity to meet

Happy Thanksgiving my lovely readers

Sincerely Guady G

The State of Affairs

Dear Husband

You were supposed to stay in Maryland but you had to go to Idaho. Being with you was like Missouri anyway! I won’t Mississippi, ya know.

My Maine point is I want a divorce!

Bye your wife.

Happy Thursday Love Guady G—Hugs

The Doctor’s Visit

Those with with eyes that refuse to see

People are more than a means to make money

The sick come to us needing so much more

They need real care not just a bandaid and a kick out the door.

They say give 15 minutes and not one second more

But I always do cause that’s who I am at my core.

Yes that oath to do no harm and actually care.

But come 5 pm the staff is angered that I’m still there.

Even patients say I’m taking too long

They are accustomed to just being strung along

What to do when healthcare is this way?

Do I try to change it or merely look away?

I either advocate for change or lose my job

I’ve done that before and that’s why I’m where I’m at.

Do I care for them or myself in this broken system?

Can it ever be changed or am I just deranged?

Thoughts?

Hugs from Brooklyn
