Again, what can I do but create humor & laugh, laugh, laugh...

Half a Man...


Half a man I feel without my love,

In Colorado doing what she really loves,

Buying and selling horse’s with her uncle she is,

God I hope she returns soonest, I miss her so much…


She goes away often, her uncle does travel,

Our lives together, well they have been, of late, quite unraveled,

I miss her so much, but I also envy her as well, feels wrong, feels right,

Can’t get my feelings herein very straight,

Want her to be with me, but also want her to be happy, I just feel so sappy, right now,

What can I do, she is still away, and I am here feeling altogether blue…


Well at least I can write, I can show to the world how I do not feel quite right,

Maybe someone out there; can show me the right path,

Or at least tell me to go take a cold bath…


So, Rene’ when you read this, you will then be in the know, that half a man is how I feel,

When my other half is on the road with the horses, better them than a calf,

Rufuz misses his mommy too, but still has daddy to play with and bite,

The only person I get to bite is myself, not a very happy prospect, especially at night…
