To paint the day in joy, a birthday poem for Tosha Michelle by Tracy Diane Miller

If I were an artist
Do you know what I would do
I would paint the day in joy
All to celebrate you
What color is a smile
To decide may be tough
To capture the vibrancy of laughter
What color is enough
Could I call upon a Renoir
Might a Monet know the hue
A masterpiece of emotion
Leaves work for a heart to do
Maybe the heavens know the answer
I could ask the clouds to speak
The wonders framed in nature
Surely must know these colors my heart would seek
To paint the day in joy
A poet writes the words
For poetry holds no judgment
In the love that is often heard
A Muse may be tired
A Muse will not rest
To journey through my soul
For the words…

You can be with one person who wears many hats and that keeps you needing less experience as you become more. When pretty young, older girls thought I was a good 5 years older and in a different school when I was running Varsity in 7th grade. It was definitely a lot of learning

      3. I figured about that. I moved in with my HS crush, not so much sweetheart. We both applied to schools in the same state but never the same school and settled in Texas. I realized that I loved her but was not in love with her. I stayed with her for all of the wrong reasons. My ex wife captivated me and I got married at 33.

      4. Yes it is a better time. Just she was well under rated at her job and I was a leader in my profession and my side jobs and I got hit with a huge decrease in pay and I got her a head hunter, had her get her masters and she went up 300% and it went to her head. But I kept trying. At least we still talk friendly after

      5. It took a while though. We did not have kids which normally makes it odd but we talk here and there. She was very happy about my move here.

      6. It is not bad:). Do you have 2 kids as I remember a post months ago? How old? For some reason I am the only one in the family without children and there were no physical issues, just my body thought better of the idea I guess.
