Hop over to https://thebeewrites.com/2020/02/20/love-is-in-da-blog-2020-day-20-a-love-that-hurts-a-breakup-or-heartbreak-prompt-for-day-21/

Coffee black, cigarettes
Start this day, like all the rest
First thing every morning that I do
Is start missing you

Some broken hearts never mend
Some memories never end
Some tears will never dry
My love for you will never die

Rendezvous in the night
A willing woman to hold me tight
But in the middle of love’s embrace
I see your face

Some broken hearts never mend
Some memories never end…

……… …….. ………

The Bee Writes gives and says

Today’s prompt might or might not be a sad one. Jim gave it to us and it is:

A love that hurts, a breakup or heartbreak. Thanks Jim!

Today’s prompt is from Di at Pensitivity101 and is a “Love Song for a Parent”. 

But you love me Daddy

Your five year old face
Is a dirty disgrace
But you love me, daddyYou scatter your toys
And you make too much noise
But you love me, daddyYou know little lad
You can be pretty bad
But you love me, daddyYou wake me at dawn
When I want to sleep on
But you love me, daddyNow you eat the cookies
When I tell you, no
But you love me, daddy
‘Cause you tell me soAnd you’re so hard to scold
‘Cause your my five year old
Because you love me, daddyWhen I dress you up
You go play with the pup
But you love me, daddyWhen I use the phone
You won’t leave me alone
But you love me, daddyYou make sister wail
Pulling her pony tail
But…

Love is in Da Blog 2020 Day 11


Today’s prompt is by me( Bee Halton) and suggests to find a song from the year we were born. Hmmm, I am aware, that not everybody wants to divulge the year of their birth but I was never bothered.

When I looked up music from the year I was born a found Old blue eyes- Frank Sinatra. This song is beautiful and nostalgic, isn’t it?!

ALWAYS

I’ll be lovin’ you, always
With a love that’s true, always
When the things you’ve planned need a helpin’ hand
I will understand always, always

Days may not be fair, always
That’s when I’ll be there, always
Not for just an hour, not for just a day
Not for just a year, but always

Instrumental interlude

Days may not be fair, always
That’s when I’ll be there, always
Not for just an hour, not just a day
Not for just one year but always

Always
Always
All the time

#SoCS Feb. 8/2020 PACK


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “(un)pack.” Use “pack” or its opposite in your post. Have fun!

“(un)pack”

My dad knew how to pack a vehicle. We were three girls, my parents two dogs and a live chicken. My dad packed the car with space for all of us and heaps of luggage for three weeks on holiday in the Lowveld in the old Transvaal (today Mapumalanga) into our car. Those days it was at least a four-hour drive to our destination.  He also knew how to pack a bag or suitcase. He’ll first fold up everything and then pack it so everything fits in no matter how much you want to take with you. I learned how to pack while watching my dad and today I can also pack a lot into a suitcase.
