The passing of days

To the week that was
That has now passed
It’s had its ups and downs
Some high times
And some lower ones
Some smiles and yes, some frowns

I’ve worked it well
I’ve worked it hard
I’ve taken every hour
And used it wisely
Making most
Of honesty and power

But now it’s Sunday
Yet again
And rest comes to this frame
Before the morrow
Brings with it
Another week again

Particularly Sunday

Don’t have a problem
with most days
They fly by when I’m busy
though sometimes
when there isn’t time
I might get in a tizzy

Friday afternoons
are good
for I stop work at midday
Five and forty
hours are
enough, it’s fair to say

Weekend days
and Saturday
remain of course the best
Particularly
Sunday when
I get a nice long rest

Just as well

It felt just like the weekend
and for me that’s what it was
as these days I need a bit more time
to recuperate because
the travelling I’m doing now
takes it right out of me
and much as I enjoy it
long rests are what I need
But in Brighton in the sunshine
you really couldn’t tell
that this was just a Friday
which I guess was just as well

Fridays

Fridays come and Fridays go
and most of them are great
But today’s an extra special one
Now here, well worth the wait

For it means the start of stopping
and resting for a while
For I’m now on my holidays
Relax. Deep breath. Big smile.

Counting the days II

I’m not past my prime
yet sometimes I feel
it takes longer these days
to recover and heal

And I know that the sun
should help me feel well
But sometimes it seems
very much the hard sell

So I think what I need
is a break well away
A bit of a rest and
a nice holiday

And as luck would have it
that’s happening soon
A week’s cruise to Greece
that we booked back in June

Just four weeks away
so we’re counting the days
as we both need a rest
from this pesky malaise

Home III

It’s always with some pleasure
when I have been away
Getting closer to my home
at the end of a long day

Yesterday met that description
hook, line and total sinker
Eighteen hours, give or take
(It really was a stinker)!

But all that’s now behind me
and I can rest, relax and chill
Safe here in the knowledge that
my home will that gap fill

Had a week off

imgp5111

Had a week off
didn’t do very much
just listened to music
and reading and such

Tidied a bit
sorted some stuff
and to be perfectly honest
that was enough

For a week off from work
is simply the best
and cannot be beaten
for a jolly good rest
