Up And Down Day - Poem by Michael P. McParland

It's an up and down day my sweet dear
in quite a few ways.
I'm up and about with stretches of resting
that I can manage to get because
I am so exhausted and worn out.
So up for awhile and then down for a bit.
That just one example of it being an up and down day.

In what may seem silly to some it's an up day
because it's the first Saturday in full
that the College Football season has begun.
One of the greatest things and time on earth
so that is a reason to be up.
It's down though having to watch everybody else
get to play today and having to wait until
Monday night for Ohio State to take the field.
Waiting stinks for sure my dear one.
Another example of an up and down day.

It's up and down in the sharpest way
though because I miss you and you're not here.
Whenever I think of you with that gorgeous smile
I go up and feel good in so many ways,
but without you right now it also makes me sad
because I can't tell you directly that I love you
any you make me so very happy and greatly proud.
It's a mixed feeling of up and down
and also will cut each way in full dramatically at times.
I will be so up with joy knowing you love me
and thinking of all the joy that you bring
and knowing our future will be grand.
Then I will crash because I don't have you right here
to hold so very close and give sweet kisses of true love.
It's so up and down and I miss you like a fat kid misses his candy.
I love you sweet lady for you are the best and my everything.

So it's an up and down day here
and I just want you to know that I love you
and that you so truly matter.
I care for and about you so deeply
that I would give anything to just talk to you.
To see you and your sparkling eyes that set
my heart and soul on fire.
See your cute face and breath taking beauty
with that divine smile that lights up the world.
You bring me up sweet one and make my spirit
feel light with happiness and contented peace
feeling all of your comforting love.
It's not having you here or to talk to right now
that brings me down.
It's not you that makes me sad my sweet Angel dove,
it's the missing you and missing a huge piece of myself
without you here as my other half.
You are my happy thoughts my precious dear.
I love you deeply and I always will.
You are my amazing best friend and soul mate,
I'm so very lost without you.

So my sweet love just an odd up and down day.
I still give smiles though because
I give them for you the light of my life.
You are the Angel that helps get me through.
I love you Kira and you will always be
that special one that I care about and truly love.
You will always lift my spirits with your
Angelic soul and loving heart.
