My Sweet Friend


A smile. a kiss, a tender touch

A sweet hello today

Each and every time we meet

Lovely gifts of these come my way


Your caring ways you alway show

For everyone you meet

The wink, the smile, the teasing glance

All make you so complete


All softness yet so strong in mind

 A spirit of strength all the while

A loving pride for family

Behind that flirting smile


You are a proud Slovenian man

Canadian now true blue

I am so proud to know you 

What a gift my friend, it is YOU!

Heal As The Birds Sing



If only birds could talk they would tell us all to sing

They sing their song each day so well to tell us it is Spring

We humans spend to many hours thinking thoughts of sorrow

I wish the birds could teach us to look upon tomorrow


In our hearts we know to try to hope for better times

To heal our minds, our souls, our hearts

When a storm comes knocking at our door

Are we able to take on this fight or do we just depart


Shall we take the strife to bury inside

Or with strength in our mind we will say


“Ready to face you sorrow”  on this and every day

A Tender Journey


On the cusp of life and love

We struggle with our thoughts of those

Tender years we struggled so

To find our way and paths we chose


The road is long and sometimes harsh

But don’t despair,  we do endure

The joy of striving, pushing on

The wicked ways that tend to lure


We all shall face good times and bad

We will find love yet lose a tear

But oh we never want to miss

Our tender journey with all so dear.

Good Morning Mr. Moon

(Prompt word for today;  Rhythmic)


Good morning Mr. Moon

Don’t you know our morn has come

Your beauty gave us light last night

Please sleep now, we want the Sun


The Rhythmic nature of our world

So wondrous and beautiful to view

You give us new each and everyday

From dusk to dawn and all day through


When human troubles get you down

The constant chatter of our time

Take a look at nature’s ease and grace

Let her calm your fretting mind

Glitter or Gloom


Some days our lives can be glitter and gold

Some days only shaded and long

Some days when I open my eyes to the sun

Last days thoughts pour in with the dawn.


Let’s take a deep breath, it’s time to renew

Let’s start our new day with a smile

Let’s all tell ourselves our worries can’t win

We will find our new strength for a while.


Hot coffee, good food, so ready,  refreshed

I shall go on, come what may

Open that door, stepping into the sun

Ah yes,  let’s bring on the day!
