I hate the sound of

I hate the sound of my alarm
waking me from slumber

I hate the buzzer sounding
when my clothes are dried

I hate the sound of sirens
forcing me to clear a path

I hate construction sounds
while I’m resting outdoors

I hate the sound of people
talking on cell phones

I hate the sound of dogs
barking non-stop

I hate the sound of laughter
when it isn’t funny

I hate the sound of music
from the car beside me

I hate the sound of snoring
while I’m trying to sleep

I hate the sounds of thunder
chewing, shouting and crying

But most of all
I really hate
that buzzing sound of a bee
as it surrounds me

I'm still here

I’m still here
I’m still living
He died and left me
I must be forgiving

He was the man
I was the wife
Everyone thought
We had a good life

We had our problems
More than a few
We were discreet
So nobody knew

We had two children
Both moved away
Unwilling to move
We chose to stay

On him I depended
To take care of me
He went and died
As if he did flee

I’m now in a home
Sharing a room
With nothing to do
Just meals to consume

No one will talk
They sit and stare
They don’t have stories
They’d like to share

Here in this home
I’m waiting to die
He had to go first
I sit here and cry

Don't share your food

Don’t share your food
With a big raccoon
When he's hungry
He'll return soon

Don’t share your food
With a bunny rabbit
Because eating your food
Will become a new habit

Don’t feed the squirrels
They'll gather nuts
Your kind of food
Might hurt their guts

Don’t feed the deer
When it comes near
If it likes your food
It will reappear

Don’t share your food
With wild prey
They’re sure to return
Day after day

Preserve the forest
Don't ruin their home
If not, when they’re hungry
In your yard, they’ll roam

I liked you better when you were fat

I liked you better
When you were fat
Needing two chairs
Wherever you sat

I'm heavyset
I could shed pounds
But dieting
So bad it sounds

To be with you
Made me feel good
Especially when
Beside me you stood

You shed those pounds
Now you're slim
A healthy diet
A daily swim

A whole new look
With brand new clothes
To lose that weight
Is what you chose

When you were fat
I thought I looked thin
It's obvious now
What shape I'm in

Our favorite pictures

Another newborn baby
A picture you'll show me
It’s really hard to tell
Is it a her or maybe a he

The baby is so pretty
Of course I'll always say
I’ll try to sound sincere
When this I do convey

Look at all those pictures
You’ve shown me everyone
You’re grandkids are real cute
But now I’ve got to run

You’ve taken a vacation
And now you have returned
Come look at all your pictures
This honor I have earned

What lovely wedding pictures
They're always fun to see
Bridesmaids next to ushers
With the bride and groom to be

Here's what Rusty looks like
Her pictures are with me
I love my little doggie
She keeps me company
