The Way It Goes

Triple bypass, valve repair-
This poor guy is eighty one;
We’re good people- sure we care-
No such thing as having fun.

Got permission, we’re in charge-
Make arrangements- get this done.
Wow this task is very large-
No such thing as having fun.

All the meetings ease his mind-
We’re like family, he’s got none.
All it is- we’re being kind-
No such thing as having fun.

Stop his mail and clean his place-
Scrub the carpet, hide his gun.
If he makes it- needs more space-
No such thing as having fun.

This is just one friend of ours-
See why we don’t want a ton?
Always takes up all our powers-
No such thing as having fun.

John H. Bidwell

Your title."The Way it Goes," sad....but you've expressed the emotions so well.

You are a wonderful friend to him, it sounds he's more like family than a friend. You will be rewarded for your compassion and big heart. I pray he will be allright.

he is blessed to have such friends and his friends are blessed to have him.

It may very well be "no such thing as having fun" but the rewards of selflessness far surpass...

Be always safe,
