Remembering all that has been lost
As well as all that we have gained
It is times like these that balance looking forward and back
Seeing this particular snapshot in each of our lives
Entices us to lift our glasses in a toast. Here’s to you, my reader.
Vast emptiness inside his life left him listless, drifting in space
Oblivious to those orbiting around him trying to help
It was easier to focus on those hot balls of gas spewing hate
Deeper he went, then colder and darker it became till he became lost in the…
For once they were lost
It was made worse when both their phones died
Now all they had were their tent, some supplies, and each other
Don’t you know they discovered something special. Then the bear ate them.
Looking for something familiar, some landmark to rattle is memory
Order to placate the chaos inside his head
Still, no matter how much he looked, there was nothing
That was worse than any Hollywood boogeyman ever
Love came down as a baby
Igniting a beacon in the night
Giving hope to those in the darkness
Hope to those that had lost it
That all could find their way back home
Count them. Twenty-two. Read ’em and weep.
And that means you busted. You lost.
That’s not right. You speak of deceptions. I always win. I’m a winner
Can you follow the rules just this once? You don’t always have to win
Ha! That’s how a loser speaks. I won’t fall for your trap!
Can’t decide if I can fit it all in
Ramming in multiple items, trying to make them fit
And realizing that it might be a lost cause

Last thing he saw coming was that guilty verdict
Floundering through her life, confused and confounded
Oblivious to what her true self was
Under the pale gray emotional sky
Naomi finally felt she knew who she was
Didn’t know it would take being lost
What would I do without you?
I would be lost and without my best friend
Fortunately we have been married for twenty-two years today
Enamoring me to you more each day
