I thought I'd Miss You Less

The best thing that ever happened to me was you. I did tell you that many times but many times I acted as if that wasn't true. I am sorry for that because you always were much better than me but you never knew that.

You are one of the most beautiful woman I ever laid my eyes on and that includes super models and movie stars. Like Sophia Loren you never lost your beauty, but like wine you got better as you aged.

You have it all. You are intelligent with a flair for languages, four in which you are fluent. You were able to run a very dysfunctional household very well. You worked in the school system very effectively. But more important than all of that was the purity of your soul. Your kindness of heart and your empathy for those who were downtrodden.

Through no fault of your own you started to leave me bit by bit after we were together 35 years due to the horrors of Alzheimer's Disease and then shortly after we were together 50 years you were called home and we were separated physically until the call comes for me.

The funny thing is even though we are separated physically I feel your presence whenever my thoughts turn to you or any other things of love. The other peculiar thing is I miss you more now than when you first left. I had thought that time would lessen the feeling of loss but it doesn't as living without you makes me miss you even more than when you first left. The wound has healed so I am not bleeding as I once was but the scar reminds me of what I have lost, your soft skin, your yielding lips, hands ready to soothe, always ready to accept me and lift me up, never to throw me down.

There's no way we can correct this situation and so I shall wait until we meet again and we shall, of this I am sure.

 Until then stay with me, help me through the way of life as I live my destiny. Help me find solace and joy maybe even with some other person. But know this, you are my love first, last and always. I am so blest to have had the privilege of sharing our lives together. I love you!!!

Donald Trump -Master Manipulator

Trump complains about "fake News" yet most of what he says is "fake" as he misleads about crowds that aren't there, winning elections by landslides that aren't land-slides, promising to reveal his taxes but never does, says he doesn't know anything  about Russia or have ties there while we all know about his "Mrs. Universe" and his son saying a few years ago that more than half of their income or wealth is attributed to Russian investments.

His term is barely started and already we have one trusted advisor who was forced to resign because he lied to  the Vice President about his dealings with Russia. The Attorney General, Trump's appointee is under question about his meetings with a Russian Ambassador and had to recuse himself from investigations that may take place involving the Trump campaign that Russia tried to influence and may have, because there are smells that something may be wrong with the whole situation. Consider the fact that Paul Manafort, and others close to the campaign had to resign because of their interests in Russia's business. Yes that's correct the same Russia that was trying to influence our national election by favoring Trump while discrediting Clinton. Our intelligence community, 17 organizations reported this stopping short of suggesting that any influence exerted could be measured or that their was any collusion on the part of Trump and his cohorts. But their conclusion certainly raised questions.

On top of all this Trump and Putin seem to be having a "bromance" where Trump even likened the USA, that's right our country, to Putin's Russia indicating that we were "killers" like them.

Yet the Republican Party leaders and their fellows continue to back Trump 100%. Trump's backers don't care what he does as long as he keeps America "Great" or is that "White" again.

I hope we can resolve all the questions surrounding Trump and his cohorts soon so that our country can be "Great" again.
