MY VISITORS ON FRIDAY:

MY VISITORS ON FRIDAY:
On Friday my son and Kelly
Who was in the UK.
Came to visit me 
Whilst they were my way.
 
They said how lovely my apartment was,
But were concerned about my loneliness.
They told me I was welcome anytime,
The offer was tempting I confess.
 
But with a few health problems
Holding me back,
To get on a plane at present
Lack of confidence I lack/
 
The last year or two 
Has taken it 's toil.
I feel like banging my head
Against a brick wall.
 
My other two kids
Plus that no-good man.
Has made life hell for me,
That's when my problems began.
 
John took me shopping
Whilst he was here.
To save me carrying the bags back
Oh what a dear.
 
It was lovely to see someone
From my family again.
After all the worry and stress
And the endless pain.
 
We had a meal begore they left,
With my daughter they were staying the night.
They had to get their hired car back to Gatwick.
Before their return flight.
 
It was so lovely to sit and chat,
About days past and future hopes.
I must try my hardest to visit them.
To prove to them...and myself once more I can cope.

    1. Having my confidence being dragged to the ground by certain people,
      The thought of what onece use to be a pleasure, flying feels me with dread.
      It was lovely to see John and Kelly, they made me feel wanted....the first people in years. I have many wonderful friends on Blogsphere whom I appreciate but to see people in your apartment was wonderful.
      Thanks for coming by much appreciated.
      Yvonne.
