lousy timing with silver lining

This weekend is my son’s engagement brunch
(That is when you are late for breakfast-
But way too early for lunch),
Yet with all the happiness and congratulations
A bittersweet taste and some deep frustrations
This is also one year, since my father was laid to rest
It was a difficult year, a hard year at best,
Yet there is a silver lining in the dark ominous cloud
He met my son’s future wife, and was very proud,
So despite the fact that my family has lousy timing, (It is a fact)
I know he has approved of this pact

    Mazel tov !! I think most of us have lousy timing … though the cup is half full. A difficult year in deed ~ losing a father, ending a marriage … but the silver lining is the engagement – a new baby en route – and the opportunity to get up each day to a new day that offers you options ..
