Forever Superman ♥ Superman Forever

It is quiet
not peaceful
Just quiet

Morphine sleep
not restful
Induced sleep

Vigil in the darkness
not comforting
Dreading the silent darkness

Feels lonely
not alone
Just lonely

It is almost time
not today
We need more time

We are afraid
not spoken
But we are afraid

“Am I dying?”
not today
He is dying

Must be strong
not forever
For him I will be strong

I will break
not out loud
After, I will break

will Always be

Hi everyone! Welcome to 50 Shades of Gray Hair. 50 Shades is my blog of life over the hill, where each day is full of delicious opportunities to earn another gray hair. I stopped declaring war on the gray when I began this blog years ago. Instead, I embrace and celebrate them along with whatever life decides to throw my way, with (sarcasm forward) humor and an optimistic eye to the future. I think. I hope? I don't know. At any's real, it's honest, it's full of 4 letter words, and it's me...on a platter. I sincerely welcome you all to my porch....♥♥Rhonda

    1. Love you BonBon…and we’ve decided we are going to use laugh therapy. It’s what he did best, taught his kids, and brought out in all who knew him. So, I’m shedding tears and laughing with love for this Superman of my heart. xoxo


    1. He sure as hell is Jo. There no one like him (except David…and maybe Allan a little…oh, and me some) 🙂 Thanks for the love and the hugs. Wish you were closer…xo


    1. I know you have Mim, and I know how very much you miss him still. Thank you for being here with love and prayers…and I too, pray for peace. For him first, and my mother…I’ll find mine surrounded by those I love, and in the laughter that is his legacy. This waiting is the hardest thing I’ve ever done…but as long as I’m still waiting, he’s still breathing. He is surrounded by those that love him most, and he hears our storytelling, hears our laughter, and I know he’s laughing inside. I just know it.


  1. Rhonda,

    It feels like yesterday when I was sitting in your place, as my dad, too, was failing and on morphine. It was heart wrenching, and I continue to miss him every day. For me, the blessng was the wonderful gift that I was able to be with him (and my mom). And…what a gift to have a father that you adore and love so deeply. Not everyone is so blessed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    1. Oh Patty, it hurts doesn’t it. I’m sorry you’ve gone through this already. There is no preparing. There is knowing, seeing, doing what is in our control to do, but you can never prepare. We are counting hours now, long, dark, lonely ones…but we are together and that’s what will get us through. Thank you for your comforting words and your prayers.


    1. I’m glad we were here too Tam. He passed at 7:45 this morning. Feels like there’s something I should be doing, but I don’t know what really. Doesn’t seem real


    1. Thank you so much. We have so very many fond memories that have already kept us going through these last days…I can only think with each day, there will be more and more.


Nice-n-Easy...but tell it like it is
