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 ?

Oh Christopher, brave Christopher how did you spend your life

Across the seas and oceans wide amidst chaos and strife

You stumbled into a new world upon your wooden ship

What a surprise it was to learn this was no Asia trip !

And thus it was so long ago this land of ours was found

When the Spanish came to conquer and rule all on the ground

Now that is how it did begin in fourteen-ninety-two

Today we owe Columbus all our love and huge thank you !

 

 

IN HIS CARE ( 2017 ) 2017/09/06

Oh little child so full of dreams

Life isn’t always as it seems

The door of hope is not quite free

It may not open up  for thee.

Just wait awhile and softly pray

That God above will save each day

For it is He who blesses all

And answers when the children call.

Be not afraid He’ll keep you there

Close to His heart and in His care !

 

GOD’S TRUE LOVE ( 2017 ) 2017/07/08

I wish I were a child again

Returning to remember when

Those days gone by that I recall

When I was young and oh so small.

I never questioned for one time

That I was in some unsafe clime

I wish that I could do the same

For all those children I can’t name

Who need to seek the safety of

A world chock full of God’s true love !

 

ANGELS FLY ( 2017 ) 2017/06/01

There is no way one can explain

Why children love to splash in rain

Or why the mud is so much fun

In which to slide upon one’s bun.

There’s no accounting for the joy

That comes to every girl or boy

To screech as loudly as they may

To frighten every bug away.

Or why each babe will play with you

The game grownups call “peekaboo”

And truly I do not know why

They all believe that angels fly !

Hear now the battle marchers’ roar

Sending our children off to war

If not for them who will it be

That gives their life to keep us free ?
