Sunday Muse -- and I Cried


Dolly Cried 

Why is that big tear 

Did I stick you with a pin 

Did I take you from your drink 

Did I take your toy away 

Please don't cry 

Is it something I have said 

Or something I haven't said 

Maybe something I have done 

Bigger than these 

Something I have not done 

Did I forget your birthday 

Or our anniversary 

When ladies cry 

Sorry if I made you cry 

I hate that, shouldn't happen 

(Tough being in the dog house)

That ending made me smile Jim. Wishing you a great weekend.

So well said, Jim. I imagine your sweet wife has learned what a softie you are!

I was touched by your sense of helplessness in the face of a female's tears, Jim. Your gentle response says a lot about you.

I'm pretty sure you forgot your anniversary... again!

"Bigger than these
Something I have not done
Did I forget your birthday
Or our anniversary "

Most serious tears to attend to.

Happy Sunday

Oh, tears get to us all. We want to wipe them away, get rid of the reason for them. Sadly we too often don't carry the magic to erase pain.

Jim, I apologize to my wife every morning for anything I may have done in my sleep to offend, and for anything I am sure I will do today! 😉

Tears are definitely a spur to pause and pay closer attention.

Oh, yes, those "didn't do" are what get a man! They have no idea what it is they forgot. Sometimes tears just come though, not because of something done or not done. It feels good to let them out.
