November’s Last

The last day of November has come

It seemed only yesterday did it began

Tomorrow will be December, the Friday of the months

The start of the end of this year

A few more hours and November will say goodbye

Until next year once more it’ll come

Fair Warning

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows a sign saying; “You have been warned “ it’s lit up in yellow color light over a reddish background.

Simone is known for her wonderful work ethic

Most of the time she is quiet and angelic

But on busy days, do not disturb her

Else, the monster within might stir

Unless if you have a cup of coffee

She'd smile and accept this gladly

3:00 A.M.

A slumber party for two

With not much slumbering to do

We had hot choco when we we’re younger

Now tea and coffee as we’re much older

But I’d still like some hot choco as we wind down to morning

We’ve been up for hours, animatedly talking

By the fire with some pie

Silently, I happily sigh

Conversations at 3 AM is good for the soul

You had a warm smile, everytime I saw you

It was always bright and genuine

Years have passed but I valued our friendship

and I’d hope to catch up with you

But the you went away all so suddenly

It was just not how we expected

May the angels hold you close

While I keep the memories

Hi everyone! Sorry for raining on your parade with this post. I wanted to write something about Thanksgiving. We don’t celebrate it here in my country but there is a lot to be thankful for and it was something I wanted to share.

However, I received some sad news yesterday. A former coworker and friend of mine passed away yesterday. She was just around 40 something years old. I have few details of what happened but it seemed she had some sort of attack (not sure if it was heart attack) and when they took her to the hospital and got a CT scan, they found a brain tumor.

I’m not sure how long she was at the hospital but it seems only about a day or two from what I saw on her Facebook timeline. She was a great person and always had a genuine smile. I met her when I was in my early twenties and she loved being called “mommy” in the office as she loved being a mom to us all.

She is survived by her 7 children and husband. I pray she finds rest and the family is able to heal in time from this very sudden death. Again, sorry for being a downer today. I just needed to get this off my chest.

Let’s Do Brunch

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows a table set with food, mostly breakfast dishes, and coffee. Hands are reaching towards food.

Let's talk it over brunch
Between breakfast and lunch
The time would be just right
No fuss, no fight
While we wait for the others, we catch up on life
Like you telling me about your beautiful wife
Friends we have been and friends we will be
We catch up on life over brunch and coffee
