Sad sad day

If it should be
If it should be that I grow frail and weak 
And pain should keep me from my sleep, 
Then will you do what must be done, 
For this - the last battle - can't be won. 
You will be sad I understand, 
But don't let grief then stay your hand, 
For on this day, more than the rest, 
Your love and friendship must stand the test. 
We have had so many happy years, 
You wouldn't want me to suffer so. 
When the time comes, please, let me go. 
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend, 
Only, stay with me till the end 
And hold me firm and speak to me 
Until my eyes no longer see. 
I know in time you will agree 
It is a kindness you do to me. 
Although my tail its last has waved, 
From pain and suffering I have been saved. 
Don't grieve that it must be you 
Who has to decide this thing to do; 
We've been so close - we two - these years, 
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

Missing in action

I hadn't realised it had been such a long time since I put type to blog and new resolution to get back on track and converse with the world a little bit more.

My life has changed direction since I last wrote. I have a new job that I love, I don't or haven't done any scrapbooking or crafting for quite some time, I bake more than ever, I am back up to 4 cats although this may not last long and I hit a birthday landmark.

So you may well see some of my newer interests on here and I hope some of my older ones but before then a catch up of the missing time.
