WHEN THE ALARM CLOCK FAILS:

 WHAT OCCURS WHEN THE ALARM CLOCK FAILS:
I set my alarm clock Saturday night,
As yesterday had a busy day.
Well the alarm clock failed to awaken me.
And the price I am going to pay.

You see I was travelling to Spain
To dogsit for my son.
I was really looking forward to it.
Thinking of all the fun.

When I did awaken yesterday,
It was way past take off time.
I immediately sent a text message to my son.
........Well lets say things are not at all fine.

He has blocked me 
From getting through on the phone.
No more HE dosen't want me.
Now I'm totally alone.

He is off to Mexico tomorrow.
Perhaps he'll have a change of heart.
But I very much doubt it.
On my own will have to make a fresh start.

I don't really blame him,
After all is done and said.
I should have ensured the alarm clock .
Was set properly before retiring to bed.


Tearfully I unpacked my suitcase,
To the depths of despair I have gone.
I have only myself to blame
Why I have lost my son John.

    1. Thanks for your concern Alex, another flight from my airport would have been too late as it's winter schedule.
      John travels to Mexico tomorrow.

    1. Thanks Susan for your kind words.
      I thought John was different from his brother and sister,
      Guess I was wrong.

  7. We all have those kinds of things happen. If not, we're not human. Your son will come around after he has time to understand you didn't do it on purpose, he had his trip, the dog had care--even if it wasn't what he'd planned.

  8. What an awful thing to happen Yvonne. I can imagine your son being very annoyed as he would have to make alternative arrangements for his dog on the last minute, so he's blocked you on the phone just in the heat of the moment. Give him some time then try to contact him again - write if necessary - and hopefully he'll have had a change of heart. I really hope it works out for you x

  11. Oh, Yvonne, I hate that this happened. When your son has time to think about it, he'll realize that stuff happens and we forgive and forget. I pray it all works out for you soon.

    1. Thank you Beverly for your kind words. John my son is not the one to bear grudges so hopefully in his time in Mexico he may think things over.
