There’s not a day that passes by

When each one’s dream may bid goodbye

There’s not  a night without a star

Reminding us how near or far

The journey of our lives will be

In terms of our expectancy.

For we are here a short time all

Without control o’er win or fall

It is the Master of our fate

Who knows our exit and its date !

Tomorrow is a promise that we make everyday

Believing that the morrow is always on its way

It’s our hope for the future and one that we all share

But for some, those tomorrows may never breathe the air

No guess that time or consequence or evidence show

How much of tomorrow each of us may ever know !

When I was small I had this toy

Of cotton cloth, it was a boy

And when I went to bed at night

I’d hug my Sammy oh so tight.

He wore long overalls of blue

His shirt was striped with pockets too

Brown hair had he of woolen yarn

His eyes were closed, his mouth a yawn.

I  loved my Sam with sleepy eyes

My daddy won this grand surprise

One summer night twas after dark

In Palisades Amusement Park.

They’d spin a wheel around and round

And when it stopped the number found

Could win a prize but mostly lost

Just one thin dime was all it cost.

Sam lived with me many a year

He was my friend and brought me cheer

But after daddy went and died

Perhaps Sam ran away to hide.

I never found him after that

Of course we moved to a new flat

I’ve often hoped that he did find

Another child to treat him kind !
