When I quit this mortal shore And mosey 'round this earth no more, Do not weep and do not sob; I may have found a better job. Don't go and buy a large bouquet For which you'll find it hard to pay, Don't mope around and feel all blue; I may be better off than you.
Don't tell the folks I was a saint Or any old thing that I ain't. If you have jam like that to spread, Please hand it out before I'm dead. If you have roses bless your soul, Just pin one in my buttonhole While I'm alive and well today; Don't wait until I'm gone away. Mabeel Easley.
Let me hold them in my hands and smell there fragrant scent Then I will reminisce of different lands Before; I am heaven sent. I will reflect back when I was young Or I might think back not long ago When I walked underneath the sun Or when I felt the wind as it blowed. Bring me flowers when I am here Please don't wait until I am gone So I might reflect to a different year And my memories will last on.
I might reflect to a different time With every breadth and scent I breath And knowing the flowers are mine Shows how much that you love me. Let me enjoy the flowers again Let me feel them on my fingers Because I just don't know when, And how long my memory will linger. Bring me flowers with a smile Please don't bring them with any sorrow And I will hold them just like a child As I held you, and held on till tomorrow.
I want to see them once again As I place them on my table And then they will be my friend And I will greet them when I am able. They will be a part of me My mothers always had said So bring them now to me please And don't wait until I am dead.
Carolyn Ashford is Cassi Carver has become one of my favorite authors. Carolyn Ashford is a great character because she has a lot of determination and does not let the past get in the way of her future.
She is on the cusp of being a recognized high-end clothes designer, instead of just a member of the very wealthy Ashford family. Her ex-husband is dangerous and almost killed her over money, so she is hiding out on her soon-to-be sister-in-law's best friend's ranch, until the financial aspect of her divorce is finalized.
West Texas is a far cry from the New York City lifestyle, as Carolyn soon finds out and begins to enjoy. Former Marine Carter Halston is a hunk of a cowboy and bodyguard. He has a heart of gold and because he has a few fond memories of growing up on his family's land, he is working diligently to expand the ranch, now that it belongs to him. As a favor to his best friend, he agrees to keep Carolyn safe for a short while and even teach her a little bit about self defense.
Carter lives with a lot of guilt and regret from his time in the war, and Carolyn's presence happens to be a wonderful distraction. She ends up helping him deal with his demons and nightmares. Carolyn and Carter are great together because they challenge each other in the most unique ways. Immediately upon meeting, they feel a connection and overtime, they become much more than just friends and sexual partners. I enjoyed this book, and read it from cover to cover in one afternoon.
It is a well-written story, complete with great characters, a plot that twists and turns in all the right places, and an ending that will definitely leave you smiling from ear to ear. Overall, this novella, and the first two in The Ashford Legacy series, are great reads from an author that never fails to amaze. Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Apr 09, Laura Hannaway rated it really liked it. Absolutely wonderful, the best in the entire series. The romance between the two leads was very sweet, and the central conflict was excellent and for once not brought about because one of the leads was being stupid!
