Unsettled Mind - Poem by Bob Blackwell
I suppose one-day life will get better,
I wonder if John will come back to me?
He really shouldn't have gone,
Life is awful without him.
I feel so tired all the time
I forgot my doctors appointment.
Mother will be arriving soon,
I must put the kettle on.
I must take an aspirin.
Last year John and I went to the theatre to see
'Shirley somebody or other.'
The roses were blooming, it rained buckets.
John and I could go to the beach.
I forgot to get bread and milk; I'll have to go out.
I wish the postman would come.
I expect the tide will be out.
I must do the ironing
Maybe there is a letter from John.
I've got no money,
I didn't do it last week, too many clothes.
I forgot to go to the bank.
I have such a headache,
It was 'Valentine'.
I have a toothache.
Mother will be hear shortly.
Put the kettle on, she'll expect cake.
I must take two aspirins.
The bakers wife died last week, cancer.
Oh dear, I have no tea never mind cake.
Maybe there will be a letter from John.
The dentist should have phoned me.
She'd been ill for quite awhile.
Expect not, he never writes.
I forgot my birthday last week.
The funerals tomorrow,
I expect mother will be late.
He really should not have left me.
I did'nt get a card from John.
Everybody will wear black.
I had a dentists appointment this morning.
She usually is late.
I forgot to get the car from the garage.
I hope she does'nt come.
I must take three aspirin.
Its been there since last week.
I have such a headache.
The mechanic said I really should learn to drive
I wish John was here.
It was not my fault I did'nt see the other car.
I expect life will get better.
It was green or was it red?
There's mother at the door.
I wish she'd go away.
If only John would come back.
She is so critical of me.
I feel awful.
Who is that knocking at my door.
I suppose one day life will get better
