Flowers, plants & things from nature were your favorite things in the world....you loved them so & appreciated the beauty of it all. Today we celebrate the holiday of Shavuot, when the Jewish people received the Torah & G-d’s Ten Commandments. A year ago today, we spent this holiday in the hospital with you, looking for answers & ways to make you better. Never expecting or knowing that a short 6 weeks later you would leave this Earth. This holiday will never be the same - it marks the beginning of an incredibly painful journey. I feel as if I have no more to say than, I’m sorry you’re gone, I’m sad you’re no longer here with us to celebrate, I miss you terribly every single day.
I love you so much!! To the world, here is what I have to say, Don’t take life for granted & especially don’t take the people who love you & care for you for granted either. Tell them you LOVE them every single day, as many times as you’d like and as often as you’d like.
Dad, I love you very very much!!! 😪💔💐
THANK YOU to @fellanflorists for this gorgeous flower arrangement. I know my Dad would have been impressed & loved it so. Nothing but the very best.
Everywhere is a reminder of you
The couch is your arms holding me whenever
The bed is your heat surrounding me at night
The sunshine is your laughter brightening my day
The floor is your stability securing me forever
The sky is your limit soaring me higher and higher
The shower is your love flowing down over me
The car is the speed you were supposed to come back to me
But now its all empty promises
Haunting me every moment
Memories that are now just dreams
Dreams that were never reality
Plans made and never to be true
All I ever wanted was to be with you
I never thought you leave me
But this year is one big tragedy in my book
A chapter ended but the next is being written
Maybe someday you will make another appearance
But for now you’ll just drift away
Becoming fainter as you grace my past
I’m looking toward the future
With constant reminders that you once were all I needed
And now you're all I have to live without
So what happens after you've been there and back
Got your hands, feet, and sound
All thru this town and several others out there
But the way history becomes a mystery
Everybody you meet smiles and nods
Ahh just be nice to this crazy old dude
He had one too many drinks today
Out here losing his mind talkin 'bout..
What'd they do to this place??
I don't remember any of this being here..
I used to play here..That shop over there.. Hell man, every joint that was out here i've been thru 'em at least a 1000 times back then
Oh yeah?? Straight up??
Yeah me, #BB , #IkeTurner , #BobbyRush and #LittleMilton kept these joints jumpin every week thru weekend
Say word?? What you doin now??
Oh I...Well, I've been away for sometime
Didn't wanna hang around where I wasn't wanted or needed
So goes the price we all paid for gettin older/smarter
So I left it all behind
Raised a family, lived a quiet life
But, somehow these here kids found me and now.. huh...
They're tellin me they love my music
Said me and my friends changed a lot of lives
They say my lil ol' songs made them Wanna do what I did once upon a time
Guess it's all to say that
Maybe I ain't done just yet..
Still got some more inside to say and play
Don't need no money by now
I never really had it to care about
..Don't know much about being a star
See, we were just them crazy ass
Country boys to most people outside our world
Imagine being a black man in the south Waay before all this here technology
Back when being black in America
Was a death sentence
Especially when anyone south of that
Ol' Jim Crow line would spill your blood
Just to re colour you dead
No, all I remember was that I just wanted to play
And everybody who came to the gigs night after night
Said next weekend they couldn't wait to hear me playin these blues again
Don't know if I still got it...
...Hope I don't freeze up
I just hope the people might dig it
Maybe they'll dance..laugh some..
If it's at me shit I'll laugh too lol
Aw mayne lol
All this fuss over lil ol' me
Like I'm somebody important
Shiit, what do I know?? Lol
