Can you remember  what it’s like

To spread your wings and feel grown up

When I was but a  tiny tyke

I learned to sip the grownup  cup

And now I’m  old  I can’t excuse

The habits I’ve acquired since  then

I wish  somehow I could refuse

And to be young once more again.

Oh blessed  Lord so much to see

In this new world  of let’s pretend

We’ll try our best to  gracious be

And hold on tight  before the end !

I  hear the sound of  running  feet

It fills my heart with pride  replete

Midst noise  of children in the  street

And all  their  antics with  each  feat

They’ve  not yet  learned to be  discreet

Reminding  all  how  time is  fleet !

When I was young I used to pray

That I would be a mom one day

I’d raise my offspring to be good

And do the things that children should.

I’d hoped that we’d fulfill the dream

It was a lock or so it seemed

The angels watched from up above

And filled their heads with care and love.

But love is not enough to save

Each one of them from perils grave

There is no way that we may know

Wherein life’s tragedies will grow.

In winds of war or illness great

Who knows the time or day or date ?

Oh hear the sounds that fill the air

Of children laughing everywhere

The glist’ning snow keeps falling down

Windblown to cover all the ground.

E’er softly while they drift and blow

O’er scenes observed now cloaked in snow

If you should wish to venture there

Dress warmly and please do take care !

The smallest tot on Mommy’s knee

Now laughs and smiles each day with me

And through those hands plays  “I can see”

While sharing love quite easily !

 

 

SIMPLE PLEASURE ( 2017 ) 2017/12/09

The simplest pleasures that I will miss

Are an unexpected sticky kiss,

Tiny fingers pulling at my hair

And  peek-a-boos meant for two to share.

There is so much joy small children bring

Into each day of just plain living

Their hopes and fears or their smiles and tears

Gifting our lives with surprise and cheers !

 

 

 

 

OUR REMEMBER WHEN ( 2017 ) 2017/11/25

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

I’m writing to you just because

Christmas is coming round the bend

It’s time to share it with a friend

Though not so simple as it seems

As Christmas nears it fosters dreams.

It is a season to feel young

With Yuletide carols to be sung

It would be nice if we’d return

To days when candles would be burned

When children small were told the tales

Of magic sleighs that had no sails.

 

The reindeer were believed to fly

Across the reaches of the sky

But let’s pretend a moment more

That elves may work in Santa’s store

It’s true I’ve never seen an elf

Except ceramic on a shelf.

Well never mind, this too shall pass

Like Alice through her looking glass

Until next year, same time, same place

Anticipating your embrace

I pray I’m not too old by then

Forgetting our remember when !

 

ISN’T IT WONDERFUL TO SEE WITH THE HEART OF A CHILD ?
