My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

October 29, 2010 “only one and one only”

“only one and one only”

****

no substitute for air

to give me breath

*

no proxy for water

to quench my thirst

*

no surrogate for sunshine

to light my day

*

no alternate for blood

to quicken my heart

*

no locum tenens

no succedaneum

*

simply nothing

 

to replace

 

you

***

  8. This is just fun, Tracy. And I do love your cheerful banner in honor of the holiday. Hooray! Happy Halloween.

    Have a wonderful day, dear friend.
