It feels good

Reverse Care…

Remember that I moved Dad in a few weeks ago?
Well the speed at which I operate has amp’d up, yo!

I’ll  tell you something that  I did not know —
all of my dramatic talent came from ‘The DAD GENE Show.’

He’s a hee-haw and a ho-ho-ho! I haven’t had a break.
I’m the parent, he’s the kid – I’m on the give, he’s on the take.

For goodness sake, I am indeed a “Daddy’s girl.”
And I don’t want to imagine a day when he’s not in my world,

though he is getting older.
His “golden days” are propped up on my shoulder.

The state I reside in is quite warm; no longer is dad colder.
Dad’s clarity of mind is fading  though his personality is bolder.

Yes, honey. He has the withall to yell “Quiet! I got this.”
Then order me off to make cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate.

He’s now, the oldest and the youngest.
I laugh a lot because he’s the funnest.

If I didn’t laugh at some of lifes revelations – I just might cry.
No need for tears, Dad is reason for cheer — the golder years of life.

I’m glad I decided to move him to this dust and sun-driven hood.
Sure, Dad’s a major handful but It sure feels good

aging-parents-forgetfulnessTo have him in the metroplex, to be there to make him smile.
To confir that he may be getting older and that I’m here to assist with the mile.

It’s a way of living, a lifestyle – that we choose to do for others
who aren’t just our kids and pets or our chosen and beloved lovers.

It’s not “a given” that we’d default care for our sisters and brothers.
Nor do we live in a society that demands elderly care of our father and mothers.

I’m so very glad that Obama Care was not nixed.
My father was about to get in line. My father is sick.

My father is a USAF veteran, but VA care is not enough.
He wanted to file for Obama Care, but heard it would be rough.

While my fathers income is insufficient to be considered “baller status,”
It eludes being sufficient for good care. Red lights were thrown at us.

He couldn’t afford this and couldn’t afford that…
He’s grown short patiented and easy to make mad.

dont-forget-the-USAF-vetsI’m the flip side of his coin and I’m not so easily moved.
I’m always up to change the low altitude of any hero’s mood.

I’m patient with my Dad to make all understood…
Dad is sound is and usually quick to come around
Woop-woop! and It feels good! 🙂

I like the feeling of today and I’m looking forward to tomorrow in various hoods,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, come and sip coffee with me, I’m up early and It Feels Good.
