For Donna

To My Friend Donna
They say that true friendship is rare An adage that I believe to be true Genuine friendship is something that I cherish I am so lucky to have met you. Our bond is extremely special It is unique in it's own way We have something irreplaceable I love you more and more each day. We've been through so much together In so little time we've shared I will never forget all the moments that you've shown me how much you cared. Friends are forever Especially the bond that you and I possess I love your fun-filled personality Somehow you never fail to impress. The world could use more people like you it would certainly be a better place I love everything about you You are someone I could never replace. You are always there for me When my spirits need a little lift I cannot thank you enough for that You are truly an extraordinary gift. You are everything to me and more I could never express that enough Life is such a treacherous journey, and Without you it would be even more tough. Our story will continue to grow With each passing day Because I trust that with you by my side Everything will always be Okay. You are so dear to me You know I will love you until the end I will always be there for you, and You will always (and forever) be my best friend. Read more: "Best Friends, Best Friend Poems" -


I'm sitting here in my room, looking at your picture. Wondering why you couldn't be a part of my future. Uncontrollable tears stream down my face, while my heart beat starts to race. Asking god why he took you from my life, it was more painful than stabbing me in the heart with a knife. I still needed you here you were the one to make everything so clear. you are apart of me and I am apart of you when you died a part of me died too. I never knew how hard it was to loose someone you love until the day you went to heaven above. Even though I can't see, I know your up there watching over me. I miss you more and more everyday and all I can do is pray. In my heart you shall forever remain. I did not write this but, it so fits for me today

Women over 40

This was on Face Book: I don't know if Andy Rooney actually said this --- but I LOVE it! Subject: women over 40In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40:("60 Minutes" Correspondent, Andy Rooney-CBS)As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think.If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!
