Christmas Comes But Once A Year

Christmas comes but once a year
As does Easter and New Years
Celebrate, have some cake
Eat the treat Christmas makes.

Travel round
See the smile on the child
That believes in Santa Claus.

Feel the joy
Feel the cheer
Wrap a present for someone dear.

Christmas comes but once a year
So we should raise a glass
Of hearty cheer
And bless this day throughout the year!

Did I Tell You Everything?

December 18, 2014

Mom and Dad

Did I tell you
Everything?

Did I say
Everything?

My heart knows no bounds
That it’ll go to give you
Everything.

I’ll cherish our relationship
Knowing it means
Everything.

Sacrifice Needs Not To Be

December 17, 2014

Golden Eagle ~ Illustration by Patrice

Sacrifice needs not to be
Nor neither give in
No
This is not your destiny.

Abuse no one in your passage
Just
Proud, strong and kind
These are what is needed
In all of human kind.

Courage To Understand

Courage
to understand.

Strength
to get it done.

Tolerance
to know
not everyone
is the same one.

Kindness
to guide
yourself and
those lost.

Awareness
to know when
and what.

Yourself

That’s all
it costs.

Secrecy.
It abounds in my mind.
All doors are shut there,
Only opened on rare occasions.

Snow Soft And White

December 11, 2014

Fields of Snow ~ Photo by Patrice

Snow soft and white
Piling up
Has been all night.

Quietly falling
Covering
Blanketing all that shows.

The sun will rise
Shining bright
On snow covered fields
Blessed
With a insulating layer of white.
