RECEIVE… a poem

When I was small

You picked me up

You held my hand

You gave me love

Now I’m older

But I still see

The love in your eyes

When you look at me

And just like you

I pass it along

To my children and theirs

This sweet love song

Sometimes with words

And with actions too

The loving heart in this heart

I received from you

HANDED DOWN… a love poem

woman wearing green top holding hand

If you walk and hold my hand

If you put on this wedding band

If you will love me for all life

I’ll pledge the same to you, my wife

And when our children are all grown

Yes, with families of their own

I hope they look at us and say

Please let us turn out the same way

It all started with a kiss

We’ll look back and reminisce

And cherish every single time

Our hearts beat in the same rhyme

Grandbabies falling fast asleep

Upon our laps all in a heap

With hugs and kisses we let go

God had a plan and made it so

Just hold on tight girl while we fly

Exploring mysteries of life

And know it started with our love

Handed down from up above

THE SKETCH… a poem

The sketch I drew

From my mind’s eye

Caused me to reminisce

Of days gone by

It was of a boy

Who I’d say was three

A picture of joy

As he swung on the swing

Happy go lucky

As the old saying goes

Not wearing shoes

Dirt on his toes

A gentler time

He’ll never forget

Pushed by his dad

On that old swing set

APRICOT LULLABY… a poem

An apricot lullaby

Mesmerizing and deep

Cleansing my mind

As I’m falling asleep

Wrapped in the arms

Of my mother’s sweet love

Drifting away

On the wings of a dove

Moon, Moonlight, Dream World, Dream

Dreams of my father

So proud and strong

Walking the dogs

While singing a song

The morning sun rises

And to my weary eyes

I see a book on the chair

Filled with sweet lullaby’s
