Sunshine on a tattered list
Often enough, I read. Often enough I'll look to things that are familiar such as lists and remedies, signs that I follow on freeways, you know. I find myself lost in lists. The lists that I mean to follow to keep my mind from wandering from the reality of life and they are well kept. Often enough, they are easy to follow because I write them that way. Being careful to use good penmanship. But I have this one list, the things I meant to do. its the oldest in my collection and the only one still added to (my mind goes blank, I know I have to be somewhere to do a- thing). And I am nowhere near even the middle of this list. My saving grace is that my life is nowhere near the middle so it seems I have plenty of time. WHat doesn't save me is my heart is no longer in it. My heart is no longer in me. So God, help me find it.....please. Amen.
