Chapter 49 of the book 2020-5
just because
"A Reason To Go On" by Barb Hensongispsaca
I've waited many years for you
please come into my arms.
I picked you over all the rest
because of your fine charms.

I need someone to stand by me
through trials that life may bring.
I want someone to share my tears
and teach my soul to sing.

My loneliness has brought me down,
my life's an empty shell.
My tears of blood have all dried now,
please, lead me from this hell.

You'll show me how to laugh and play,
to learn to live again.
My heartache I can put aside,
I have too much to gain.

I'm here to take you from this place
and move you in with me.
I've plenty room for all your things -
give me a chance ... you'll see.

I know the final pick is yours
but I will do my best
to make you happy for all time -
I know I'll pass your test.

A little awkwardness at first,
but that will smooth right out.
I'll make you happy this I swear;
I can, please have no doubt.

So, let me put this leash on you
and we'll be on our way.
You'll be my dog, my family, too.
I know we'll be okay.

The book continues with Mama Said ... Save Your Fork. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.
