There are some days I still recall

When all my babies were quite small

They laughed a lot and cried some too

Midst pillows, quilts, scissors and glue.

The kitchen floor, their happy place

With lessons and great playing space

It was the classroom served them best

That through the years withstood each test.

I relish now the times we had

When all were young, not yet a lad

So full of hope who could forget

And nothing left to hold regret !

Oh my dear child so full of glee

I wish that you would visit me

Perhaps we could have tea and cake

What kind of pastry shall I bake ?

It would be nice twixt me and thee

To share a special tea party

And if you’d like to bring a chum

I’m sure that we’ll have room and some !

Why can’t I remember or recall

All those precious times when I was small

When I sat upon my daddy’s knee

As he held me tight and talked to me ?

These memories are melting away

Just like my life, drip by drip each day

Oh what I’d give to capture it all

Sweet memories from when I was small !

 

 

THE ROCKING CHAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/05/10

There’s an old rocking chair I do recall

Remembrance of days when I was so small

While my nana cuddled and held me tight

If I was tired and lost or full of fright.

As we rocked away in that wornout chair

With many a ride we’d places to share

I believe each child is entitled to

A view of the world from a lap or two,

I pray each gets the opportunity

To bond with someone as special as she !

 

 

LAMB OF GOD ( 2016 ) 2016/04/13

Oh little lamb you are so sweet

With wooly coat and nimble feet

You make me smile, oh cuddly beast

Among God’s creatures, not the least.

I’d heard that Mary was a fan

Together you two played and ran

Though I have never had the time

I can remember childhood’s rhyme.

Maybe one day both you and I

Will meet our Lord in passing by,

He has been called the Lamb of God

Perhaps we’ll bide in His backyard !

 

 

CHILDHOOD’S END ( 2016 ) 2016/03/20

Who knows where we’re going or where we’ve been

“Not I”, said the top who began to spin

While the jacks and the ball started to play

The electric clock tried to run away.

As the toys in the playroom danced about

Tin soldiers awoke and started to shout

Oh such fun it was to play let’s pretend

So sorry childhood must come to an end !

 

GREATER GOALS ( 2016 ) 2016/01/12

How sad it is upon this day

That childhood soon must fly away

The dearest gift a child may find

Is someone who is of like mind

The search is long, it’s journey fleet

And sometimes it is bittersweet.

Tis better still as we do grow

Into the adult all should know

To leave our wayward cares behind

As need and purpose doth unwind

While hidden there amongst the shoals

Are finer truths and greater goals !
