    I'm here with her and miss my ( well ) girl

    I can relate...you are keeping it real.

    Have you let her know how you feel.
    Pride is false. I would not go thirsty
    if I knew where that well was.

    The well I now dip from isn't dry.
    But it's bitter some times.
    I'm working to siff out the salt.
    I don't know if it will ever run
    sweet again.
    Until it's gone, I try.

    One day sweetest water a man could want.
    I really don't know and can't pin down
    what caused my well to sour.
    All I get from the well is blame.
    No hope.. it seems. But I continue.

    Oh I have an idea.. my well wanted
    me to change. To be someone
    without challenge.
    I didn't and never challenged
    my well before this.

    I challenged bigotry.
    I challenged wrong doing.
    I challenged anything and
    everybody that came near
    my well and tried to taint it.

    I protected and loved my well.
    I lost a job, and my well blamed
    me for speaking up. For standing
    my ground. I got another.. But I didn't
    know salt had tainted my well.
    I didn't know my well was against
    me traveling day to day into the
    wilderness to secure substance
    for my self.

    I can fight any fight.
    But I'm thristy now.
    My well isn't there for me. :(
    Should I go dig another?
    I have added two small tributarys
    from this well I must tend to those small ones.
    I love them as much as I love the well that birth them.

    My well thought I was to
    head strong. A trouble maker.
    My well said I hurt people
    and was always :maddd: and
    upset about something.

    What my well fails to under stand
    is a man faces things the well
    never has to face. I would rather
    live without that job, if it manipulated me.
    If it discriminated against me.

    If after I saved that mans A*S
    numerous of times and came
    thru with the credit, without the pay,
    without the promises he made.
    I had to refuse to continue.

    Well if my well was safe behind me,
    What took place in front was
    between me and the challenger.
    The stand I take is my pride. My dignity.
    If I stand for anything,
    especially if it isn't right.
    I fall for everthing.

    I hope all wells know that you never
    come between the thrist you quench.
    Stay behind, or by the side of the one
    dipping of the sweet.

    Especially if that drinker.. takes care
    and looks out for the well.

    =================
    If I had my favorite glass
    to drink from the well that
    contained the sweetest water.

    I would keep that glass full
    trying not to spill a drop of
    that sweet quench that takes
    my thrist away.

    I would sip the water
    and save the rest.

    Checking the level all
    the time. Knowing it was
    going low.
    Do what I could to
    replenish the sweetness.

    Rain dance,
    what ever it took.
    Doing what
    was needed
    to keep it from
    going dry.

    But sometimes
    it doesn't work.

    Eventually the
    glass would empty.

    Now you search to
    fill that glass.
    To taste what you
    once took for granted.

    I would find the well
    that contained the
    sweet liguid.
    Dip my glass and
    see if it came up full.

    It is sad when you
    have to dig another.

    Finding that the
    thrist isn't quenched.

    You move on.

    A lady can be like a well
    quenching the thrist of a man.
    Plenty of wells out there, but
    only a few that can satisfy,
    and give you the taste you
    desire.

    The thing to do is
    settle on a well that
    makes you happy
    and can enrich your existance.

    You never miss your water
    until the well runs dry.
