A 'nothing' Day

I'm glad to have a 'nothing' day
I seem to need repair.
I can think to many things to do
but energy's not there

I circled through the park awhile
My walker offered rest.
A squirrel asked for food from me.
I couldn't answer his request.

Now I am back and in my chair
I contemplate my mail.
It's such a joy to be in touch
By jet, by phone by mail.

I long for closeness, each to each,

I'm spent before I start the day
And I am not impressed.
I'll decide what is essential
And forget about the rest.

I'm glad not much depends upon me.
My dear one made provision.
I long for closeness, each to each,
When there's a group decision.

If these things, stress me in the night
When I ought to be out cold,
They wreck the rhythm of my life
That is already old.

A Singer

The entertainer thought of us
And what we would like best.
His repetoire was excellent,
His guitar, his songs, the rest.

It's long ago that he was young
He did his singing well.
With that he smilled from ear to ear.
What else is there to tell?

I wasn't really in the mood.
I stayed until the end,
But around me they were strangers
I just wished I had my friend.
