Happy Birthday Grandson


For Isaiah

For Isaiah

I cannot  believe you are six today

I am sorry we have missed being with you

so much along the way

but know that one thing will be forever true

Grandma and Grandpa will always love you

Since the day that you were born 

you changed our lives in many ways

we think about you everyday

and wish that you were near 

 

You are so very dear

to us and make us very proud

So Happy Birthday 

Dear Grandson

We hope you have a lot of fun today

with Mom and Dad 

and both your brothers.

We hope your Birthday is the best

and like no other 

and although we are far away 

our hearts are close to you

and there to stay. 

God Bless you.

Writing a poem

sometimes requires

extra stamina,

a conversation with one’s muse,

an extraordinary happening,

listening to nature,

carefully observing the work of ants,

an endearing gesture,

a big hug,

a dimpled smile,

a sad story on TV,

looking through the family album,

the visit of a sweet memory,

sorrowful news,

an old fashioned love song on the radio,

or just listening to your own heart.

 

 

 

 

 

what happened to good?


What happened to good?

I would like to know.

All  you hear lately is negativity

our economy: no good

our hope: not there

our respect: gone

that’s not good.

our patience:non-existent 

That’s not good either.

our dignity: not present

not good at all!

our ability to care for one another

going, going gone

This cannot be good.

What happened to for the good of the order?

What happened to our humanity?

What happened to good?

Oh wait. I think I see it  crossing the street.
