The Guy

I met him when I was very young
In playground times of laughter and fun
He was there when I learnt run,
This guy I met long ago.
He stood by me through thick and thin
Never left and never gave in
He helped me lose and helped me win
This guy I met long ago
We saw the world but came back again
Searched for a paradise I was already in
Wiped my tears returned my grin
This guy I met long ago
He was there in needles sting
Looked at me with eyes pinged
He said no we have alread been
This guy I met long ago
In drugged haze of early days
In lovers embrace and easy lays
Lonely nights careless days
This guy I met long ago
When death was better than living
When razors teeth were bidding
He was there but hidden
This guy I met long ago
He sits with me when I am all alone
Boiled kettle watching is my telephone
All these things that he has shown
This guy I met long ago
He knows me more than anyone can
He sees that I am merely a man
He knows I do the best that I can
This guy I met years ago
When death comes he will follow me
Pay the boatman cross the sea
He is myself and my destiny
This guy I met years ago.

In 2011 I became the father to a child with special needs, a different type of perfect beautiful girl to add to my equally perfect (in a normal way) son. As my journey continues I find my best way to vent my feelings good and bad is through writing. This blog is for me to get my emotions out, if this can help another family like mine it would be great. My feelings are not rare in families like mine, maybe someone seeing some of their feelings in my words will make them feel a little less alone. Please feel free to comment or contact me at anytime, I look forward to your feedback. Kelly "Boy" Dugan
