I know I know…we all go through it. Parents get older, health fails, the dreaded phone call…
Except I knew better.
I knew this would happen, and I tried, I really tried to figure out a way to go see my parents before this happened.
Money, lack of.
Being too busy.
Always hoping the next pay check would allow me a visit
Seems like there was always something
It’s not right that we lived so far apart
I always called, but that’s not enough
Can’t hold or touch someone through a phone line
Can’t speak to them eye to eye, with subtle meanings understood
It’s not real
It’s not true
You HAVE TO BE THERE
So Mom was diagnosed with cancer of the lung and liver
Doctor told to get things in order
Well, certainly that’s true, except we really should have them in order now
No God? What are you crazy? Look…LOOK! Think these hands were made by chance?
Think your eyes just happened? Come on…that takes more faith then I’ll ever have.
No…there is God, and he Loves us so much. All he’s ever wanted was you. Just you.
To Guide you into a full and exciting life
To let you know that you are special
Well God, please be with Mom and Dad as they are scared and loney
and I so much want to be there to tell them how much you care and Love them
please send someone to tell them about you and your Love
