He is with me every minute of every day-
And from my side he will not stray!
Do I like this – no not much-
I want to run, but I’d need a crutch!
I know he is frustrated, he tries to be sweet-
But he has so many needs, I really can’t meet!
Needs to be met – right now says he-
I can try & try but sometimes I want to flee!
I’m tired of trying to please him, day after day-
Whatever I do he complains all the way!
Now I know why Maya Angelou’s – “Caged Bird Sings”
It just happens to be Gary whose pulling my strings!
Day after day- all day long-
I’m going to have to learn to sing my own song!
He follows me from room to room-
My entire life he does consume!
Sometimes I stay up late, through the TV channels I sift-
It’s the only time that’s mine & that’s a real gift!
Please Lord, teach me to stay fresh & be kind-
That’s the only way, I won’t loose my mind!!
