HAPPY SEPTEMEBER .....ONE DAY LATE:
I took a day off yesterday,
To gather my thoughts together.
I wasn't feeling all that grand,
Unlike our hot sunny weather.
The trials and tribulations of life,
Are certainly getting me down.
No family to support me.
But I refuse to wear a frown.
I put things into perspective,
Sure, my kids have lives of their own.
But all the same it would be great
Once in a while to recieve a call on the phone.
Then in the afternoon
The mailman made his call.
That cheered me no end.
And made me feel ten feet tall.
My Daniel O Donnell fan club bulletin arrived,
So thought I could catch up on his life.
Now he's back on touring,
After having quality time with his wife.
Then another letter caught my eye.
It was addressed to me.
All the way from Dublin.
From the man himself DOD.
He thanked me for my latest book,
Said to me "Well Done".
Thenk you and God Bless,
Hope to see you soon.
Some of the proceeds of the book,
Are going to a chairty of his choice.
He wrote and informed of the said charity.
To give less fortunate people a chance to rejoice.
So what started out ,
A day of utter despair.
I went to bed last night,
"Floating on air".
