Thinks


This evening I was thinking and that made me think (seriously); I wondered how much of my time is spent worrying about Nikki's blood sugars and then worrying about whether or not I'm doing all the things necessary to help her become a healthy, successful and independent young lady - That's when I realized that my overactive worrying/thinking button had been pushed and that, in turn, caused me to start speaking in "Suess language" again. The result is the following poem:

MY THINKS

Oh the thinks I can think
In one quick little blink
I think about hope
I think about nope
I think about ways to help her cope
When I think what I'm thinking, I shake my head hard
Still my mind starts in blinking, which causes MORE thinking
I think about shots
I think about red spots
then I think about tears
and I think about fears
and I wonder if diabetes will last all her years
When I think what I'm thinking, I shake my head hard
Still my mind starts in blinking which causes MORE thinking
I think of her smiles
I think of her eyes
and I think that her future will soar past the skies
When I think what I'm thinking, I shake my head hard
I let my mind blink and I welcome the thinks
Cause' her future's much brighter than all the thinks I may think.
