I Want To Say Thank You

Thank A Police Officer Day on Delmarva - DelmarvaLife

I usually do not post on the weekend but sometimes you have to.

I want to say thank you

For running into the unknown

For responding to the call

Not knowing if you’ll make it back home

For keeping our town safe

When you are patrolling the streets

For stopping, just to say hi

For getting the cat out of the tree

For keeping our kids safe

By being in our schools

For writing me that speeding ticket

When I chose to break the rules

Thank you for working late

Missing your family’s supper

I know your job is hard

And some are making it tougher

But I just wanted to take a minute

To let you know some of us care

That cry with you, that stand with you

That respect you, that says a prayer

That some of us will stand by your side

We’ll remember the heroes

Who responded on their last ride

Stay strong, stay protected, get home safe

It might not be the popular thing to say

But when have I cared about that

So thank you, not only today

But every day

Time To Say Goodbye

Time to Say Goodbye – Moroccanoil Beautiful Business

It’s the same story every night

I tell myself it’s time to say goodbye

I feel like I am just wasting time

I’ve got other things I need to do

If only I could break up with you

I can’t tolerate the stress you put me through

But it’s harder to do than I thought

And sometimes I feel like I cannot

You’re an addiction I have fought

Here is the cold hard fact and you have to face it

I want to get better and you want me complacent

You want me to stay here but I want to go places

But tonight will be the night

Candy Crush, I’m telling you goodbye

Wait, you’re giving me an hour of free lives

Ok maybe tomorrow……I can say goodbye

Who The Hell Are They?
