A Gift From God - a Sonnet

I am a wish, a prayer, from mortals lips
That reached heaven and  touched God’s fingertips
And returned to earth wrapped in flesh and blood
A gift from God’s unconditional love

So love and cherish me as God does you
And guide and teach me well in all I do
And together, a garden we will grow
Filled with the fragrant beauty of the rose

And on the day I reach maturity
And feel the need like leaves to leave the tree
To show the world the colors that are  me
Rejoice in all the beauty that you see

For I am your  child the gift that God gave
No More than a wish and a prayer -  away.

Stardust In Dreams

Stardust dreams of you in my teens remain 
sacred in hours spent wishing you would be 
mine to cherish, to kiss, to love. It was not to 
be but your handsome face still lingers in my 
thoughts, in church choir songs where you 
gently reached out to touch my long auburn hair.

Gift of 2023

A little angel is born to us, a cute dainty darling. Our first grandchild, the fruition of our dreams of a lifetime. Sent down from heaven, a blessing we will ever cherish!

The Luckiest Man

The Luckiest Man

I have found that not everyone is as strong
As the skies are wide and the days are long

But in life I have found there is this one
Whose bounty makes me feel as warm as the sun

And from the moment that she first caught my eye
I knew I’d be with her til’ the day that I die

That I would love and cherish her all the day through
And do all those little things we men are supposed to do

And spend my days lost in utter bliss
That I had this beautiful woman to kiss

And there’s one true fact ‘bout her being my girl
That makes me the luckiest man in the world

Tell Her

Life is but a fleeting mist.
What is now, will soon be missed.
Seize the moment, say in words:
God’s greatest to you, was her.

Days of ordinary passing,
Too soon leave for nothing’s lasting.
Take the time to cherish her,
All widowers surely concur.

For when death’s door is finally closed,
No words or sonnets you’ve composed
Can reach the ears that once desired,
Your Love and words to lift; inspire.

Nothing in this world can bring
What you alone have offering.
Make the call, write the letter
Let her know you won’t forget her.

Death’s toll rings and she is gone
A vacuum fills and a fullness drawn.
While you can, express your heart
Before too soon, she will depart.

I look at you and I don't want you 
Stopped needing your kiss and touch
Needed you to love me for me
Tried to get you to do your part
Make memories and cherish those made
Buried in depression
Covered in guilt and pain
Still I stayed
Looking for a way out
Wanting to be anywhere but here
Going across the bridge I want to drive off
Fly into the sky
Fall into the river below
'Til death do us part

A Flame Once Burned

~ My sizzling flame has faded in the midst of Summer's embrace and taken my virgin flower of delicately woven lace In subtle shadows and fading light silently in bewilderment I crumble without sight For each year of happiness and silver dream abound now a resonating memory silent without a sound As I walk the cobble stone path where our days had found no end I raise my arms above and pray for this love to mend If only a God-sent chance should fall my weary way this love I would cherish endless with each passing day In subtle shadows and fading light each memory of you held forever in soft moonlight ~ Contest

Glorious month
Good will
Hearth-side colors    aromas
Sound of Jingle Bells    carols
All the senses taking one back -
    back when imagination was fertile    rooted in
     In magic    and love
We – even the godless – cherish the entire month
But what when December fades?
I say there should be another month
Oh    not rooted in time –
A contemplative month – outside the let-down that is
    January 2nd

When one goes out the window    taps the eternal
    love and joy    listening to that inner voice 
    proclaiming –
“Nothing is over
Here is eternal Christmas      in the true sense

First Friends

Magical memories etched into time
looking at life through innocent eyes
laughter and giggles are reminders to us
to cherish the moments, sit back there's no rush

Incredible journey's are about to take place
soon they'll be off bringing tears to this face
First friendships are molded from what young ones see
God's little soldiers are about to be set free

Teach them good values, kindness and trust
love and humility of course, respect is a must
show them with actions let feelings shine through
and never forget to say I love you

The roses are blooming, there are geese in the lake
Invite them to nature and special memories make

Just As Lonely As You

I see you gazing east
chasing a nebulous dream,
forgetting it was a while ago
when morning sun
cheered your grin.

I, on the other hand,
cherish the west,
for it paints your lovely sunset
with bursts of orange and red,
as a silhouette longingly
meanders in your stead.

I'm willing to trade my spot
to see the other side of things.

Perhaps you will agree,
there is another point of view
just as lonely as you,
if you could just turn around
to embrace the moon.

Three Good Men

In my foolish young adult years,
three good men came along,
but their eyes brimmed with tears.
God must of sent them,
offering me love's redemption.
Not realizing they were gifts to me,
like mystic trains sent away to
wend on another journey.

The summer moon's love bathes me
in her eternal silvered glow,
upon my bed dreaming of happiness
I let go.
I do long for youth again,
to say I'm sorry for wounding them.
Was I rejecting love or myself,
placing their hearts on a shelf.

Forgive me, please,
as I age with unease.
Three good men with souls of gold,
I hope with wives who cherish them
as they grow old. ~

A Silver Christmas Wish

And from a silvered point of view
                     A merry day has changed
I guess that is the way is
                  When much has rearranged

No more the wrapping, hiding gifts
                  That beg a Christmas cheer
Yet rather praying those we love
                     We wake to find still here

And from a silvered point of view
                               A Santa in disguise
Is found not hiding on the roof
                       But found in loving eyes

Yet nothing wrong there is with fun
                              A tinsel perfect day
To cherish every kind of gift
                     With love to lead the way

Vows To My True Love

Like the smallest intake of air; I deserve not. Like a fantasy and dream of a woman to have, honor, cherish and love till death; I deserve not. But God has been so good to me, even through the sins amongst my internal image that I've committed several times over. Confessions after confessions after confessions, and yet, I'm breathing in an abundance of air and I've been blessed with a woman that's greater than any fantasy and dream of many dreams. Thank you Father for blessing me...(sigh) Thank you.

After Christmas - In the Moment

The time is after midnight, and I’m in the moment, thinking how another Christmas has come and gone. My spouse and I are tucked in bed, warm and cozy. Outside, white beauty coldly blankets our front lawn. Snickers, our new dog, sleeps peacefully between us. The cat creeps up beside me now. How I love her! How trusting are these creatures God gives us - how pure! Our cat lies down by Snickers. I hear her soothing purr. The visit with our daughter and her family was nice. With gifts, glad hearts and tummies full, we traveled home. More memories to cherish; the old year passes. In the moment - grateful - I finish with this poem.

My Window

I look at the sky
from my window;

I observe people
from my window;

I feel raindrops
from my window; 

I sense loneliness
from my window;

I think deeply gazing
from my window;

I cherish love
from my window;

I ponder eternity
from my window;

I sense the struggle of God and Lucifer
from my window;

I cry
from my window;

I yell
from my window;

I evoke emotion and rage 
from my window;

I am joyful and sad
from my window;

And — I see my soul
from my window.

My Father

I miss you dad every single day
The wonderful Times I remember 
Are the times we spent together going 
To dinner and church
The times I will cherish always on this earth
Your gentle ways and smiles and hugs
Made Life worthwhile for this is true
Forever you are missed in my heart and soul
But the forever is Heaven and you are there basking
In the Light of the Lord
I miss you dad and loved you so much 
But eternity is yours to no longer hurt
Cancer is what took you far too soon
I am always remembering your hugs and 
I loved you so much too.
Eternity is there for you now and forever
Remember I love you and Kisses from here
to you in the forever they call Heaven from earth

The Love of Roses

Perfect purple petals adorn this stunning rose Sweetly smelling scent drifts gently to my nose Nestling in my bouquet is this stunning flower Sheer perfection, I stare at it hour on hour The rose can hide a secret, a nasty pointed thorn It can hurt you deeply of this I must you warn The path of true love doesn’t always run smooth With patience and love these issues you’ll soothe A stunning red rose is a symbol of true love Their velvety petals sent from heaven above Be sure of your love when he does propose Cherish your love like this delicate rose Jan Allison 18~12~14 Written too late for contest:-(

So Shall It Be In the End

What choice has bittersweet despair,
A dying rose,
An empty chair.
Shall I then grieve and weep for thee
And temper broken heart and soul
So I can cherish one more gaze
Of happiness, of summer days
And bristle with abiding love
Of life cast now in shade and brook,
This ebb which pains with force and fate
United soon through heavens gate.

Leaf In the Wind

When I am the wind,
and you are a leaf,
I will worship Thee
beyond belief.
Summer dances
across your skin,
when you are a leaf
and I am the wind.
When you are a leaf,
and I am the wind,
each passing day
I will return again.
If you desire
the warmth of the sun,
I will move the clouds
one by one.
You will feel the sun shine
for only Thee.
When I am the wind,
and you are a leaf.
When I am the wind,
and you are a leaf,
I will find you clinging
to a naked tree.
Colors distorted
by the changes of fall.
Still I will cherish you
most of all.
On a breeze I will carry thee
to all the places I've been,
When you are a leaf,
and I am the wind.

Mon Paris

My love, I cherish
Your words
Your thoughts
Your soft lips

My love
I cherish the walks
The soft winds of fall
le jardin, L'eau

The flowers in bloom
The cafes and cloudy skies
Madeleine, columns of the past
Your eyes, holding on, to the last

The streets so vibrant, your touch at my side
And as we stroll along life's garden paths
Your soul sings in silence
Paris at last

Delving in the dreamy depths, I look up
Endearing all who behold my expressive eyes.
Crawling into the dark to see contrast of light,
Embers glow immaculately in my stupor.
Married to the tenderness and comfort of family,
Brave I am to stand in the wilderness of the unknown.
Even in content I confess,
Remembering the cold is what helps me cherish the warmth within.

If You Would Know

We chase after you,
Crush your love on Sixteenth Street,
Playing a game steeped in shadows.
If you could see, 
You would know—they are just like me.

They call for war,
Build walls against new hope,
Unable to bear the sight of your joy,
Your unshackled spirit and strength.
They ache for their own end,
And if you could see,
You would know—they cherish you more than I do.

You may cast me aside,
But you cannot escape their grasp.
If you could see, 
They blend into our world,
Sitting beside you,
Walking through the crowds.
They wear the same human guise.

You would feel sad to know that
They have abandoned their humanity.

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

Cherish the Moments

Cherish The Moments

Cherish the moments that life has to give
For you to remember as long as you live
Memories are all that shall ever remain
Of moments of life you can never regain
Children, your family, friends that you knew
May grow up or away and bid you adieu

Nothing’s forever…not written in stone
The past is behind you, the future...unknown
Capture today...take THIS moment…NOW
This may be all the fates will allow
Hold close to your heart those moments of love
And cherish them all…as a gift from above.
