I wish, I wish that I could be

The candles on your birthday cake

The star upon your Christmas tree

Or mushrooms on your juicy steak.

I’d like to be your one true friend

A buddy who will understand

Or lifetime pal until the end

I would be there to help you stand.

Now friendship is a special treat

A precious gift that we may share

It softens many blows we meet

And gives us cause to smile and care !

 

 

 

HAPPY ENDING ( 2017 ) 2017/07/24

There is this tale that we’ve been fed

That often shows or rapid goes

Sometimes it rushes to the head

Or travels down into the toes

It is a hope for all the joys

That everyone’s been sending

So full of care for girls and boys

Wishing all a happy ending !

EXCUSE ME but I have just returned home from another one of my medical adventures which are becoming more frequent as time passes.  I am impelled to applaud many of the professionals who take their ER duty to the Nth degree !  There’s Danielle who daily travels from south Jersey to Hoboken regardless of traffic or weather.  Or Joy, who moves around helping the patients attached to varied drips or machines reach the facilities or get a food tray or liquids, or Ado as he endlessly smiles and tends the infirm.  And Frank who constantly manoeuvers the beds from one area to another during his shift, never making a sound !  When you have at last secured your bed space in the proper department, with the helping angels, nurses, aides like Marichelle, Maria, Michele, Kathy, Paolo and many others with their stream of endless care.  We even experienced a real fire emergency on the 2nd day ! There are myriads of other workers, laundry, cleaning, maintenance like Carmen or Billy on their toes and alert.  And the doctors, Simon, Orbelyan, Lim or  Krish on the floor moving from room to room.  There are nurse managers like IJ overseeing procedures and needs.  But my favorite is the Chaplain Marjorie who has words to bring peace to all, group prayer, sing-a-long hymns.  She is the soft spoken disciple of God who utters kind words of comfort and reason !  God bless all and thank you for being there !      Sincerely,      Claire B.

 

YOU WILL BE THERE ( 2017 ) 2017/07/06

Of late the days all seem to fly

As leaves of time keep flashing by

There is so little I can grasp

I need a halt to take a gasp.

Sometimes I’m deaf and sometimes blind

I’m never sure what I shall find

How can my life just melt away

Without my having any say ?

I trust You Lord and know You care

That in my pain You will be there !

I cannot bear the thought of life without

Their special love that never leaves a doubt

A love that permeates the air we breathe

That has not learned to lie or to deceive !

 

 

 

 

 

SHE’S GONE ( 2017 ) 2017/03/19

Sometimes I think, when I do recall

All those precious days when I was small

I would grasp my mommy’s hand so tight

As we crossed the street without a light

We always walked close and side by side

Or shared the seat on a trolley ride.

We were such great pals she and I

While all of the years were passing by

And as those times seem to fly away

Appears we switched places on one day

It was she who took my hand to cross

And me who watched she did not get lost.

Those days are gone and I miss her much

And long for the warmth of her sweet touch

I wish I knew what I could have said

Before she passed and our friendship fled !

 

 

 

GOOD FRIENDS ( 2016 ) 2016/10/02

We’ve been good friends for many years

Through smiles and laughter, doubts and fears

We have been up, we have been down

Hugs and kisses, at times a frown

I’ve often thought what shall I do

Without a pal who’s just like you ?

It’s been so long that I’ve forgot

What life would be if you were not

And so today I want to state

That we are buddies soon or late

Whatever else may chance to be

I’m here for you when you need me !
