The word “no” was seldom said to Gary-
Now I say it a lot & he is not merry!
Anything with numbers is not his cup of tea-
The time, the score, or bills galore – he depends on me!
He bites his fingers & picks his skin-
Says he doesn’t do it, I just can’t win!
He argues & explodes over everything I say-
It used to be once a week-now it’s every day!
He forgets his pills & sometimes takes mine-
Says it’s all my fault & he’s just fine!
He lost his Dad & that makes him sad-
I got skin cancer & that makes him mad!
He seems to play bumper cars & backs into things-
I get one fixed & there are suddenly more dings!
He bounces & kicks & cries out in the night-
I wake with a start-he gives me such a fright!
He wears the same shirt – day after days-
He doesn’t seem to mind when out to golf he plays!
Coaxing & cajoling – I pretend things are great-
But from my point of view, he is not my same mate!
I pray for the Lord to protect him for many daze-
And for me I need HIS guidance through this our life’s bizarre maze!!
