I knelt over the tub
With a fish fillet knife
At my throat and prepared
To take my own life.
But I stopped. And I wonder
What stayed my hand.
Did I really matter?
Was there some master plan
With a part for me?
And so I stuck around.
And rejoice because
I eventually found
All the love I had sought
Through those long empty years
In your eyes. And that sight
Filled mine with tears.
I'm so very grateful
To have you in my life
And for an unused
Fish fillet knife.

Oh boy!!...I saw the first 4 lines and my breathe caught in my throat....*phew*

Geesh..Don't scare me like that..Just think, I might never have had the pleasure of knowing you and don't you dare say it's not a pleasure or I'll be handling that little fish fillet knife myself...ooops ..

I think we're all happy
As I'm sure so are you,
That there's no bloodring in your bathtub,
And ya got rid of the Ginzu!

Toerag: Yup. *G* I'd have missed knowing you... and THAT was worth waiting for! LOL.

RG: Woke you up, hunh? *G* Sorry 'bout that. *G*

The story's old
The poem's new
Story and poem
Both are true.

Thank you, dear friends!
