a Father’s day poem

Fathers they are

They are the protectors of good
the slayers of evil

a keeper of justice
and the one whose ground he stood

They are the superman to a little boy

the knightly prince to a little girl
a bastion of hope
and protector of joy

They are the mechanics love

the embers of passion
a lover to their woman
and a lighthouse to above

They are the craftsmen of the future

the instructors of a better life
an example of inspiration
and the bedrock of nurture

They are who we call father and dad

the privileged ones, the blessed
and if only having one is allowed
of this, I am glad

A Note to remember

image

Don’t take for granted what’s right in front of your eyes
Silence or space filled with beautiful lies

Don’t forget to caress and create moments to share
Or else someone else will be stroking through that beautiful hair

Don’t dismiss the words spoken often enough
Failing to hear thinking it’s just about stuff

Forwarned about castles waiting to fall
Not seeing the signs no matter how tall

Don’t act in disbelief once you’ve been burned
Failing to see the lessons unlearned

Don’t forget everything is not always about you
Sometimes moments can involve other people too

Don’t give over to emotion when someone else takes your place
After all, you neglected to fill the empty space

Uniquely you

One And Only You
Every single blade of grass,
And every flake of snow—
Is just a wee bit different …
There’s no two alike, you know.
From something small, like grains of sand,
To each gigantic star
All were made with THIS in mind:
To be just what they are!
How foolish then, to imitate—
How useless to pretend!
Since each of us comes from a MIND
Whose ideas never end.
There’ll only be just ONE of ME
To show what I can do—
And you should likewise feel very proud,
There’s only ONE of YOU.
That is where it all starts
With you, a wonderful
unlimited human being.
James T. Moore
