IF......

Hey all, I just wanted to give a shout out to anyone I might have indicated (unintentionally) that I was treated poorly by you all in any way....I don't see that at all.   I  don't always get fair treatment at home or in my personal life, and so the way I word things can sometimes spill over into sounding like I mean this group....I don't.

As I have said in the past, I was sinking into the oblivion of depression when I found this site, and it helped me get "help", so I could again, focus on "making,  remaking, repurposing" things....my inate love. Thank you all once again.

Signed,
The lone stranger
;-)

IN THE DEAD OF THE NIGHT
TELL ME WHAT DO YOU SEE
WILL YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES CHILD
AND JUST LISTEN TO ME

AND REMEMBER THIS NOW
HEAR THESE WORDS THAT I SAY
AS YOUR STORY APPEARS
AT THE END OF THE DAY

FOR MY MEETING WITH DEATH
THOUGH IT HAS BEEN DELAYED
I HAVE RUN MY HANDS OVER
THE END OF HIS BLADE

THOUGH THE CUT WASN’T FATAL
EVEN THOUGH IT WAS DEEP
WELL THAT WOUND’S NEVER HEALED
AND THE BLOOD IT STILL SEEPS

ARE YOU SCARED OF YOUR LIFE
ARE YOU SCARED OF YOUR DEATH
THOUGH THAT DAY WILL ARRIVE
WELL IT HASN’T COME YET

FOR THE DAYS TURN TO MONTHS
AND THE MONTHS TURN TO YEARS
AS I SEE THEM ALL NOW
THROUGH A PRISM OF TEARS
BUT DON’T FEAR TOMORROW
AND DON’T FEAR THE NIGHT
IT’S WHERE GOD REPAIRS SORROWS
THAT ENTER YOUR LIFE

THE REMAINS OF YOUR LIFE
THE REMAINS OF THE DAY
WELL PROTECT EVERY HOUR
DON’T GIVE THEM AWAY

FOR EACH EVENING WE SLEEP
AND EACH MORNING WE ARISE
BUT YOU’RE NOT THE SAME MAN
THAT’S THE WAY IT’S DEVISED

FOR THERE’RE PARTS OF YOURSELF
THE SOUL DECIDES TO KEEP
AND THERE’RE PARTS OF YOURSELF
THAT THE SOUL DOES RELEASE

WITH SOME CHANGES SO SMALL
THAT THEY CANNOT BE SEEN
BUT DEATH IS LIKE SLEEP
WITH A LONGER DREAM


AS FOR ALL THOSE MISTAKES
THAT YOU’VE MADE IN YOUR LIFE
MUST THEY STAY AS THEY ARE
OR CAN WE MAKE THEM RIGHT

ON THIS NIGHT TAKE MY HAND
KEEP ME NEAR KEEP ME CLOSE
AND IF I SHOULD DIE FIRST
COULD I NOT BE YOUR GHOST

BUT IF LATER IN LIFE
WE SHOULD HAPPEN TO MEET
WOULD YOU KEEP ME SO NEAR
YOU COULD HERE MY HEARTBEAT

THERE ARE REASONS TO LIVE
THERE ARE REASONS TO DIE
BUT THE END’S NOT THE END
WHILE YOU’RE STILL ALIVE

Stop worrying: yesterday's comments are just that - done with.

Miming and too much "sugar", I dislike The Carpenter's output. And Karen was very wrong-in-the-head.

Marcel Marceau? What's not to like....although he is French...

sorry about my "harsh" reply to your post, it was a VERY bad day I was having....
A bad day is when you lose that tiny screw in your last pair of good eyeglasses when you are driving above the speed limit on the highway ...NT new year's resolution: avoid referencing any co-morbids, deal with it and move on.

Hmm, now that I think about it, I'd call that a VERY bad day...... oh, and I hope my bit of moping about didn't upset you any....I have my ups and downs....I'm pretty cyclic that way :-)

Easy for the under-stimulated to say >:-D

Oh that reminds me,  I have to fix Ellen's glasses, since she is incapable of using a screw driver....*sigh*

Someone has taken offense at something I said and I wanted to apologize, and have done so in private, but since I offended one, I knew many others could have also been offended, so I wanted to apologize to them also. Not that I am worried about it, just communicating ;-)
