GoodBye Dad


The last year has been hard,
I won’t pretend otherwise,
My last words were over a phone,
And my last picture is old.
***
You didn’t get to live long,
There are many things you taught me,
Like how to remain strong,
When life treats you wrong.
***
But lately I’ve been thinking,
And everything reminds me of you,
So many unasked questions,
And answers that will never be.
***
Life has failed to break me yet,
But taking you was a decent attempt,
I still can’t find the perfect way,
To say Goodbye Dad.

On Feathered Wings


You watch over me,
On the ground,
Protecting me,
From all around.
***
Guiding me,
To a path clear,
Saving me,
From hate and fear.
***
When I trip,
You pick me up,
When I slip,
You sit me up.
***
You are my guardian,
On feathered wing,
Thought as arcane,
By us human.
***
Watch over me,
My guardian angel,
Unmoving as a tree,
And permanent as a hill.

Ode to a Collie


A sheep wrangler,
A fluffy hugger,
A muddy runner,
These are some,
Of the qualities,
Of a collie.
***
A lazy sleeper,
A fire hogger,
A bone scoffer,
All things done,
With great fun,
By my cute collie.
***
A watchful friend,
A fierce protector,
A valiant defender,
What more can I say,
About my loving,
Short haired collie.

Keep an open heart


If you close your heart,
And close your head,
You won’t feel hurt,
You won’t feel dread,
For love will never get to you,
And you will never fell new.
*
Love is worth a thousand tears,
Don’t fear to loose them,
Don’t fear to dread,
Just love the now,
And love the moment,
Love your heart,
And love your head,
*
Never live in fear,
Or live in dread,
Let your heart feel,
If you have that someone now,
You know the love I speak of,
But if you don’t,
Then don’t fret,
Just let your heart lead you to love.
*
Tonight before you go to bed,
Remember this,
You need your heart,
You nee your head,
To feel that love,
Just ignore the dread.

My Love For You


My love for you has only grown,
Over the years and over the miles,
I have never stopped loving you.
My heart has been yours,
Since we first said hello,
Since you first let me know.
And after all this time,
You will understand,
The way my heart demands.
Some would have given up,
And some think I’m silly,
But I still love you.
My heart calls for you,
And sings continually,
I Love You…

Mines is a Redhead


Some like the blonds,
Some like the brunets,
But I’m not like the rest of them,
I like the reds.
*
Some call them weird,
Some even scream,
Some call them beetroot,
But to they are my dream.
*
One day I will meet him,
And one day we will be,
In love and together,
Forever and ever.

Let Me Be There For You


We rarely see each other,
But you are in my thoughts,
Each and every day.
***
When life has been rocky,
You have always been there for me,
Even when you are miles away.
***
Let me repay the gift,
You constantly give selflessly,
By being there for you.
***
When you feel overwhelmed,
Just pick up the phone and give me a bell,
Let me listen like you did for me.
***
The world seems dark just now,
But I’ll shine the brightest light I can find,
Like you would do for me.
