First Week Back

My first week back to work was more than I thought it would be in areas I hadn’t anticipated beginning with I thought I would get sleepy throughout the day. To my surprise I worked through with no problems pertaining to staying awake. I don’t know if it was the atomsphere of the workplace or just being more active. Whatever the reason….

Ok, so Monday I sit at my desk to clock in and start my day, only to find out I can’t. Apparently I wasn’t put back into the system until Monday which meant I wouldn’t be able work at my station until Tuesday. Fortunately there was a pc that would allow me get work done. I felt out of place without my bookmarks and shortcuts but I managed.

So I get through Monday and Tuesday I’m back at my familiar place. I was feeling more at home and felt as if I was getting things done. The one thing that was cumbersome for me the first few days was dealing with the pain. It was more than I thought it would be but as each day passed, the pain decreased. I believe getting back to work was the best thing that could have happened to me physically speaking. Right now I feel like I could do anything, although I know that’s not the case. Driving more I’m sure has something to do with it as well.

Now getting back to sleep for a moment. For some reason, I’m not sleeping through the night since going back to work. First couple of nights I was up at 3 a.m. to drain the fluid and I could not get back to sleep until it was close to the alarm going off at 5. The past few nights have been different but just as bad. I don’t know what this is about but I’m hoping it doesn’t last.

Overall I’m feeling good and should be riding my bike pretty soon. I’ll be glad when I’m able to start my workouts again, but will settle for riding my bike.

Each new day is a blessing to me and I’m not taking them for granted.

What Does Your Heart Say?

The question is in your mind

Knowest thou the answer in thy heart?

Over and over the question plays like a song

Lyrics strum across thy heart with sweet melody

You become lost in thought by the beat

Wrapping yourself with your arms

Just the thought of me

Feeling me in the rhythm

Your heart beats the melody

Still you wonder

Why hast thou resisted in your mind?

When you are lost at sea in me

Craving my presence at the dawn of day

To the dreams of your sleep

So many questions, I do understand

Lest the falling is deep, that is love

Understand I do ~ but

What does your heart say?

Hear me from afar as too my heart sings

I too have the strumming of music within

I dance within my being, longing to hold you

I think not of love with my mind

For my heart resonates to the pitch

Earth shattering quakes it beats

Coming forth from my chest

Containment almost impossible

I need your hand to stay my heart

Hear the explosions as they make way

Steady me to comfort I ask

Acknowledge I do what is in my heart

What say you

What does your heart say?
