The love I knew when I was small

With hugs and squeezes by the score

That was the best that I recall

Along with being kissed galore !

I never thought that as I grew

All those moments would stay with me

And add to all the joys I knew

To be my favorite memory.

It’s long ago, the times now past

I wonder where the years have flown

I’ve never found a love to last

Or one that I could call my own !

The year is ending, tis soon o’er

We’ve left the cold and closed the door

Begin again with brand new start

To lift  the caution from each heart

As all those moments we recall

Ere all the shades of night may fall

Among the times we shan’t regret

And those that haven’t happened yet !

My dearest child where are you gone

What masquerade have you put on

Among the memories we’ve kept

Or midst the tears that we have wept ?

I’d like to know if God’s been good

And kept you safely as He could

For in your life you did no wrong

There seems no place you can’t belong.

My heart desires that you should know

Though you’re not here I miss you so !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ELEGY FOR DENO ( 2017 ) 2017/10/08

I hear the echoes through the trees

Life’s shadows move with each new breeze

Old voices carry loud and clear

And fall upon the listening ear.

The book has closed the story ends

And bids farewell to all our friends

To leave one nothing more to say

Ere we are forced to look away.

But let us go in peace and calm

Believing one must do no harm

Remembering those days of yore

And all of paradise before !

 

 

CHOOSE TO FOREGO ( 2017 ) 2017/07/02

My heart flies high on silvered wings

As I embrace rememberings

For all on earth I have not seen

And places that I haven’t been.

Like memories forever lost

It matters not whate’er the cost

Some visions I will never know

Are those that I choose to forego !

 

 

SWEET MEMORIES ( 2017 ) 2017/06/07

Now I have lived quite a long time

In varied places and other clime

And learned that one must try to fit

Into each spot that’s part of it.

When but a child, the horse and cart

Is how our travel had its start

Next came the Ford all black and square

While in the rear its trunk was there.

Those skinny tires were truly sad

I cannot count the flats we had

Oh for those days that are long gone

Sweet memories my heart dwells on !

 

ALL BIDE WITH ME ( 2017 ) 2017/01/10

The moment that I rise from bed

Old memories do fill my head

I am back home when I was small

And dad is whistling in the hall.

 

Mom’s hanging clothes upon the line

The wind is crisp, the day is fine

The children shreiking in the yard

Makes hearing conversation hard.

 

While Nana’s praying in her room

Pop’s sweeping sidewalks with his broom

The smell of onions fills the air

As dinner waits to be prepared.

 

My world gets smaller day by day

As those I love all pass away

And will to me this legacy

They bide with me in memory !
