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

Daddy don’t be scared

Daddy don’t be scared

I’m not that little girl anymore
Playing with mud or a puzzle on the floor

Daddy don’t be scared

I’m healthy and have grown
Moving through life with the lessons you’ve shown

Daddy don’t be scared

As I grow older I will always remember your hands and grace
Your soft eyes and the lines upon your face

Daddy don’t be scared

I am safe and surrounded by love
And grace and blessings from above

Daddy don’t be scared

Everything will be just fine
In your life as well as in mine

Xx

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

Tired

Too tired to love to caress or to care
Too tired to hug or stroke through someone’s hair
With promises of cuddling, excitement and love
Expectations set better than just above
The waiting and chatter and excited talks
A glass of wine or romantic walks
But too tired to love or caress
Leaving love in a jumbled mess
A moment needed to connect and reflect
But too tired so give over to neglect
Too tired a good excuse as any
Leaving love lost too many
Don’t start your day off setting expectation
If all you do is give a tired explanation
