Now And Then

Now and Then
I’m writing you in cursive script
Despite computer minded folk
And cell phones where you always spoke 
You’re looking at a clock instead
All other sites are just as dead
But with my plume I let you know
So you can feel the silken flow
My passion with my written word
That you may cherish and be stirred
As in a poem you never heard
The generations have evolved
Millennials cannot recall
The time we dipped our pen in ink
and crammed our mind to send a link
To hope my words connect our troth
And love you as my solemn oath

Oh how I miss you

Like the good old days
we're together everywhere
but you don't bark anymore.
I know you are there
peaceful in my quiet dreams
walking happily with me.

Each visit's unique,
I share my daily routine
but you insist on love themes.
When I said love you,
you responded happily
barking softly in my dream.

Wish's Bloom

Your sublime allure

Like plum blossoms on Fuji

Trembling with love's covenant

Unclasped by Spring's kiss

To alight, giggling, my heart

I miss you, Lotus Petal

Picture


Facing the camera
cockatiel sat on your head
your mouth and eyes are smiling
much in the same way
I still frame your warmth and love
my glass and wood are sorrows

A Love to Last a Lifetime


A Love to Last a Lifetime 


This June, sixty years wed;
     amazed, how can that be,
we, so long ago, said,
     "I do" to each faithfully?

Three new lives we bore
     and raised; they in turn,
with spouses, gave five more... 
     more love to have, return.

Hearts joined on Valentines Day...
     "Thank you, God," we pray.

Easter 2018 and Ever More

 A man most righteous, years and years ago
paid a ransom with an awful price.
First He let Himself be brought down low.
And after that, He laid down his own life.
So for all who live with suffering and strife,
hope is in our grasp from His sacrifice.

It is by grace alone that man again can live.
What if in this brand new year we could make a fraction of
the sacrifice He made? What if we this very year would give
forgiveness unto others like He gave to you and me?
Just think how beautiful our world would be
and ever more if we would live the Golden Rule and merit God’s sweet love!

Don't Walk Away

Don't walk away,
 look back over your shoulder
 come back and talk.

I'm standing here
 don't walk away
 come back and talk.

What spooked you so
 hurt your feelings, 
 made you want to go
come back and talk.

That's better, take a step forward
 nothing I said could be more straightforward
 please, come back and talk, don't walk away.

Don't walk away
 let me hold you close, 
 let me kiss your lips and take your hand
we'll talk.

I'll say it again
 come back and talk
  I love you, Don't walk away.

What Do I Hope For in 2019

What do I hope for 2019?
Less stress and strife than 2018.
Less division in the country.
Less fanatical rage because others have a different opinion.

More acceptance of other’s views,
More appreciation and respect toward others,
More love and understanding.
More kindness.
More love.

UNEXPECTED

~Written for my sister-in-law who finally met and married her Prince Charming~ 



She didn't think she had it in her
To meet that one perfect stranger
Who would devote his life to her
‘Cause her heart had been tattered blue
But she met him and how sparks flew
Blossoming into love so true

The Promise

In your passing
                       I promised love everlasting
                      and now in the seasons return
                                I promise not to cry
                                        I lie.

An Earthly Opinion

Night time skies tell me that I don't matter,
But a blue eyed lady tells me I do.
My friend, the difference is everything
For the moon and the stars can be wrong too.

Perfect Cycle

The circle is the most perfect shape they say...
Can they be wrong as our universe, galaxy and planet rotate that way?

For you, one more cycle is complete,
may the next be ever so sweet! 

To you, we send our regard and affection,
may this day be one of perfection!

So without more delay,
we send you our love- Happy Birthday!

I Will

I will love you like tomorrow.
Like the days that come to me.
Like the warmth of summer sunshine.
Like a wind that blows me free.
