Biography of jJO CAREY

I AM OLDER THAN THE HILLS, WITH NO DREAMS LEFT TO CHASE. JUST WANTED TO TALK TO SOMEONE WHO FELT LIKE ME. I GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL, ATTENDED SOME COLLEGE, I WORKED AS A REAL ESTATE BROKER UNTIL I LOST MY HEARING. I AM NOW COMPLETELY DEAF. I HAVE A COCHLEAR IMPLANT, DONE IN 1993 WITH SEVERAL UPDATES AND GET ALONG FINE WITH THIS AND READING LIPS. I AM SO GLAD THAT I FOUND THIS SITE, FOR THERE ARE THINGS I CANNOT DO. I HAVE HEP.C FROM BAD BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS IN THE EIGHTIES, BEFORE THEY TESTED FOR HEPATITIS. CONFIRMED 4 YRS AGO, BUT I AM DOING GREAT. SOMETIMES I GET DEPRESSED ABOUT MY LIMITATIONS BUT I CAN DO MOST THINGS. I READ A LOT, I CAN LISTEN TO MUSIC AGAIN AND TALK ON A CELL PHONE.
SCIENCE HAS COME A LONG WAY AND IT SEEMS I HAVE TOO. I THANK EACH AND EVERYONE FOR ANY COMMENTS TO MY POEMS. SOME WERE WRITTEN IN 1958 AND SOME NOW. SEE IF YOU CAN PICK THEM OUT. I HAVE TWIN DAUGHTERS, WILL BE 43 THIS YEAR AND 2 STEPSONS IN THEIR 40'S.
MARRIED 29 YRS THIS TIME TO A WONDERFUL MAN. HE IS WONDERFULLY ENCOURAGING. I HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO.
THANKS AGAIN. PUBLISHED IN THE INTERNATIONAL LIBRARY OF POETRY AND JMW PUBLISHING.KEEP WRITING, IT IS A WONDERFUL WAY TO GET RID OF PAST EMOTIONS AND MISTAKES. JO

You Said Hello

In my dreams last night you said hello
In a voice that was as strong as long ago
I awoke with tears in my eyes
Because you never said goodbye

How could I remember how you sound
When there's been so many years in between
But then I remembered that
We never really said goodbye
