Are You Happy To See Me

A friend comes home unnoticed. Her teenage son is busy with his mobile legend while her daughter doesn’t even know she’s home. In jest, I told her “Get a puppy, or dogs. At least you’ll be comforted that there is someone who is always happy to see you.”

I don’t know why I said that.  I’m too insensitive I guess.  Truthfully, no matter what, there will always be someone who will need you, love you, or want you. It doesn’t matter in what order. And as time goes by, every passing year, the order changes, for humans I think.

I just can’t think of a right graphic for that quote, so I used my dogs. After all, there is no better way to express unconditional love than citing a dog’s love.  Well, just next to my  mom’s love of course.  Hey, I’m not saying my dogs are at par with her. Neither am I implying that I give more time to my dogs than her.  And I know I’m guilty because I always give my dogs a treat every time I arrived home. My mom seldom receive anything from me when I see her.  Inspite of that, I know she will always be someone who is happy to see me (just like them too) 🙂

Are You Happy To See Me?

A Fool’s Dream by Joel F – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Am i a fool
when i hug you in my dream

When i build my castle
you as my chapel?

Am i crazy
When i twist and turn

with my pillow as i yearn
for peace in my sleep?

Am i batty
i smile when i see

the rainbows in the clouds
away from the crowd?

Am i silly
when i feel so dizzy

the lights of the city
can’t make me move freely?

Am i  nutty
when i fell in deep slumber

As they snore and wonder
why you made me wiser?

As i woke up
from a fool’s dream

and see that life
doesn’t rhyme as it seem

I guess you can call me a loony
You still don’t know me really.

Moving Forward

quotable quotes, joys of joel poetry, life, running shoes, slippers
it doesn’t really matter if you walk slowly as long as you don’t walk backward.

It might be a long way to go but only a dead fish go with the flow.  Just get up, dress up and show up.  It doesn’t matter if it takes a little slow as long as you keep moving forward.  Every direction has its purpose,  every way has its reason.
