So many times
Thank you, God
For dinner at my kids house
For them letting me do laundry
For having a place to go take
A decent shower
To that place
I get to be clean and shiny
Not embarrassed to go
To the library
Or the church
With my hair a hella mess
Inch of gray showing before
The London Lavender hair color
Leaving me to wear a baseball cap
To hide it
It's work to be old
And want to be young
It's hard to just find my stuff
In this old house
Half full of motorcycle parts
That aren't mine
I've slept on a couch for
Six months now
That my dogs sleep on
Until I kick them off it
At some point during the night
My mattress is in my fifth-wheel
My box springs is in my non-existent roommates
His bed is in there
It's not my bed
I've only slept in it once
Because I had company overnight
It doesn't seem right to sleep in
A man's bed that's not my man (to me)
For some weird reason
"It just ain't fittin'
It just ain't fittin'"
As mammie from GONE WITH THE WIND would say
Anyway, blessed day
Washed my truck
People waved at me
Played my guitar
Playing it again soon
Before I say my prayers
And lay me down
I love God
I love the sun he provides
That leaves me feeling alive
I love everything
No more dirty, smelly, scummy
Because someone trusts me
With keys
You can trust me with keys
I'm a nurse
God Bless you all
May clean and shiny
Come to you
As it has come to me
It's a whole new world
Just to take a long hot shower
It's smiles the rest of this night
I am blessed by the grace of God
