Precious wonder under the calm moonlight
You are the gracious Queen of the Night
White-tip mountains, majestic, stand tall. Images of trees, reflections of clouds in blue. Birds in flight look down to see years gone by, years still to see. Leaves of green, brown, yellow and red, reflect as they float to their winter bed. Footprints in snow of squirrels and deer. The […]
I’m going to be a mountain someday and just stand all the time stalwart and mighty collecting crystal’s from heaven and dispersing them ever so gently kindly and impartially to thirsty fields below I will rise to alpine stature I will be a mountain firm and ever a humble beacon […]
I am not gone I remain here beside you Just in a different form Look for me in your heart And there you will find me in our love which forever lives on In those moments when you feel alone Look for me in your thoughts And there you will […]
Whether it’s twenty years or one hundred-twenty,
Live it with a purpose to be greater than many.
Most likely life will be long;
So live it with the future in mind
Because if you act in the moment life is never kind.
Never stop building bridges that lead to better tomorrows.
Never stop trying, and don’t give into sorrow.
Never stop feeling amazed at the beauty that surrounds you.
Never stop hearing the music, and don’t give into the blues.
I see you looking at your children, Wondering what their lives will be. If you verify some answers Then their future you might see. Have you taught them to be truthful? Have you taught them to be kind? Have you given them the wisdom Needed to be color blind? Have […]
Life may not let me choose my lot, But whether I’d be happy or not… That is my choice. To leave hurtful memories behind Or allow them to bother my mind… The choice is mine. To fret over a mistake when it’s done Or learn from it and move on… […]
Sometimes I worry about my son, I ask myself, why what have I done? I gave him love, I gave him life. Why does he hurt me? Why do I cry? One day, I was burdened, felt helpless and sad, I opened up a book and read what it said. […]
You cannot rob us of the rights we cherish, Nor turn our thoughts away From the bright picture of a “Woman’s Mission” Our hearts portray. We claim to dwell, in quiet and seclusion, Beneath the household roof,– From the great world’s harsh strife, and jarring voices, To stand aloof;– Not […]
She rejoices in God with a grateful heart and a joyful spirit She possesses the ability to genuinely say to another woman: “I admire your qualities and attributes” She is blessed with the gift of giving and a willingness to help others She consoles others even though she too is […]
I’ve got the children to tend The clothes to mend The floor to mop The food to shop Then the chicken to fry The baby to dry I got company to feed The garden to weed I’ve got shirts to press The tots to dress The can to be cut […]
In my young years I took pride in the fact that luck was called a lady. In fact, there were so few public acknowledgments of the female presence that I felt personally honored whenever nature and large ships were referred to as feminine. But as I matured, I began to […]
The earth is ours to plough and plant The hoe is her barber the dibble her dimple Out with mattocks and matches bring calabash trays and rocking baskets let the sweat which swells earthroot relieve heavy heaps of their tuberous burdens let wheatfields raise their breadsome hands to the ripening […]
Here, in the room of my life the objects keep changing. Ashtrays to cry into, the suffering brother of the wood walls, the forty-eight keys of the typewriter each an eyeball that is never shut, the books, each a contestant in a beauty contest, the black chair, a dog coffin […]
This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat […]
Always remember to forget The things that made you sad But never forget to remember The things that made you glad Always remember to forget The friends that proved untrue But don’t forget to remember Those that have stuck by you Always remember to forget The troubles that have passed […]
Shadows on the wall Noises down the hall Life doesn’t frighten me at all Bad dogs barking loud Big ghosts in a cloud Life doesn’t frighten me at all Mean old Mother Goose Lions on the loose They don’t frighten me at all Dragons breathing flame On my counterpane That […]
If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t […]
You say you care But you don’t That’s why you’re not here but there You said you’d change but you won’t Every night since I was five I’d have to be on my own I learned to keep myself alive Since you assumed I was grown Some nights I craved […]
Alone in my head, I’m feeling so low, You wont understand, No one can know. My eyes are so tired, I can’t sleep at night, Your face haunts my dreams, When I turn out the light. It happened so suddenly, It happened so fast, I knew all at once, That […]
How do I cast this burden? Find peace to fill my soul?
Where do I get my answers? How do I find control?
Can someone please direct me? Can someone give me hope?
Within this darkened valley I can no longer cope.
