I’d like to take this time to say

Thanks to you who helped share my day

And all who left while others stayed

Became my friends or passed away.

I’ll miss you all and hope you know

My prayers are with you as you go

Each one of you has taught me this

That life’s comprised of tears and bliss.

What matters most, as time rolls by

That we, in hope, good sense apply

For friendship is a crucial must

A gift of love and special trust !

 

 

 

EMOTION FREE ( 2019 ) 2019/02/05


There is this pair that I do see

Each morning, smiling back at me

We three have greeted every dawn

Practically since I was born.

 

We are old friends the three of us

And no one ever makes a fuss,

Their clothes look worn and faded too

But just like me, their hearts are true.

 

There is one plus I don’t possess

They’ve candied hearts within their chests

Now that may not mean much to you

But that’s one way to not feel blue.

 

Sometimes I wish that I might be

Like those ragdolls, emotion free !

 

 

 

DOES NATURE SPEAK ? ( 2018 ) 2018/11/25

I glanced out o’er my yard today

To watch leaves slowly drift away

As one by one they sailed on by

A gust of wind made each one fly.

It seemed as though they spoke to me

But silence is their destiny

There’s too much that I need to learn

The list is long, it’s turn by turn.

I often wonder what we’d do

If nature had a word or two

So you and I might understand

What is the message of the land !

A simple meal by candlelight

To take the chill off winter’s night

A table set with antique lace

Warmed by the glow of an embrace.

The silence that accompanies

This sudden chill before the freeze

While God and man try to maintain

The quiet calm that shall remain !

 

YOU AND I BELONG ( 2018 ) 2018/08/09

Oh pussy cat, dear pussy cat, what is it that you seek

Hiding in a dark corner from which I now see you peek

Oh pussy cat, sweet pussy cat, all cuddly soft and warm

All heart and love and furry coat in such a friendly form

Oh pussy cat, I miss you so, you help me feel so strong

Come snuggle here beside me where both you and I belong !

 

COMRADERY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/04

As I awake to morning’s sound

The dawn’s exploding all around

I hear bees hum and cats meow

The birds all sing while dogs bow-wow.

The noise of traffic fills the air

While beeping horns annoy and blare

The sidewalks soon begin to crowd

Street vendors hawking goods aloud.

Oh what delight each daylight brings,

A joyous heart that hums and sings,

Along with happiness and glee

Contributes to comradery !

 

 

OUR FATHER ( 2018 ) 2018/05/05

This is the first I can recall

I find my back against the wall

It all seems strange with no debrief

There is scant time to seek relief.

We flounder in life’s deep morass

Without the aid of skill or class

I wonder what the future brings

Along with normal happenings.

Shall we survive until the end

In need of courage and a friend

Let’s say the prayer we all know well

And to the Lord our wishes tell !
