The Flower Of Friendship

7/15/2019

Friendship’s a flower which grows from seed.
Planted in hearts with a mutual need;
Nurtured by trust as a rose by rain,
Exuding its fragrance through joy and through pain.
But unlike the rose which in time will decay,
The flower of friendship grows sweeter each day,
And its perfume I savor, for true
Friends are few,
And I’m thankful, Dear Friend,
To have one such as you.

Live Life

7/15/2019

Always live life to the fullest…
Don’t let go of hope
Hope gives you the strength to keep
Going when you feel like giving up.
Don’t ever quit believing in yourself
As long as you believe you
Can, you will have a reason for
Trying…
Don’t let anyone hold
Your happiness in their hands; hold it
In yours so it will always be within
Your reach.
Don’t measure success or
Failure by material wealth; but by how
You feel; our feelings determine the
Rightness of our lives.
Don’t let bad moments
Overcome you; be patient and they
Will pass. Don’t hesitate to reach
Out for help; we all need it from
Time to time.
Don’t wait for what you want
To come to you. Go after it
With all that you are knowing
That life will meet you halfway.
Don’t feel like you’ve lost
When plans and dreams fall short.
Of your hopes, any time you learn
Something new about yourself or about
Life, you have progressed.
Don’t do anything that takes
Away from your self respect.
Feeling good about yourself
Is essential to feeling good about
Life…
Don’t ever forget how to laugh
Or be too proud to cry, it is by doing
Both, that we live life to its fullest…

A Frail Old Angel's Cry

11/21/2018

One night I had a dream, it left a tale to tell.

I dreamed I saw an Angel. Poor thing he was not well.

His body was bruised and battered. His wings, ripped and torn.

I saw that he could barely walk he was tired and worn.

I walked right up and asked him, “Angel”, how could this be?

He turned and paused a bit, then these words he spoke to me,

I am your guardian Angel a mighty task as you can see,

You’ve run wild all your life and this is what it’s done to me.

These bruised are from shielding you in time of evil.

Honor to wear so many times they shield you from evil

Unaware, every mark carries a mark of wickedness I have destroyed.

You’ve made me wish more than once that I was unemployed.

I will be keeping watch over you until the powers fail

But keep in mind my child, I am getting old and frail.

I could barely believe what I had seen, let alone how much he cared.

I wept upon his shoulder and left him in despair.

In the morning as I gazed into the silver mirror

I pondered and asked myself “Why should I try”?

Then in a far distance I heard A Frail Old Angel’s Cry.
