I use to walk in the mornings with my mother,
With our jersey milk cow to a city vacant lot,
Plenty of tall green grass was growing
Then milk, butter and cream were sought.

This was long ago,
When life was easy and quite,
When little playful butterflies,
Where there in my sight,

To be with my mother again,
Just one more evening walk,
To see her beautiful smiling face,
Listening to my little girl talk.

These decades are gone,
Yet when I think of home,
I think of my sweet mother,
Leaving our belled milk cow to roam. .

I feel that I am getting old.
Yet my heart is forever young,
Playmates and friends are forever there,
Clinging to my heart and soul.

So many days and nights have passed,
So many loves have long been forgotten,
Yet when Spring come around,
The mark of true love is again cast.

They say you are as young as you feel,
I'm not sure this is completely true,
Yet sweetheart when you are near,
My heart is over flowing with love for you.

Tearing my heart to the other side,
Hurting so badly,

I remember opening a closet door,
There hang my Daddy's clothes,
A very familiar scent arose,
Wishing I could hold my Dad in repose.

The scent of his shoes and western hat lingered,
Yet I knew he was forever gone,
Not one of these worldly items mattered,
Only his memory suspended like a song.

A gentle sweet lady died the other day,
She had endured cancer for years,
She fought a mighty, relentless foe,
All she wanted from life was no fear.

Days when she had to take Chemo,
She would be so ill , it was hard to bare,
Her husband sat with her in his lap,
His arms about her in their rocking chair.

This seemed to help with her suffering,
Cradled like a child, her husband knew,
Giving them the strength to carry on,
God was there beside the two,

She carried on most days seeming well,
Brave courageously she stood her ground,
Yet we knew the fight would soon end,
When life could no longer be found.

Husband and wife are gone from this earth,
Together in a beautiful world of no pain,
They hold each other in love,
Cradled in a Heavenly harp's refrain.

So handsome and fair,
Smarter than smart,

I lost a friend today,
A dear and loving friend,
What can be said,
When it is the end.

A life time gone,
In the flick of an eye,
Laughter and tears,
Her last good byes.

No one sweeter,
No one more caring,
Just a lovely person,
Always so endearing.

A good and loving family,
Sharing each moment as they could,
A wonderful and loving husband,
Who always understood.

So good bye my friend,
This isn't the end,
You'll live in my heart,
That will never mend.

The ice storm blew in,
With a soft, gentle rain,
Looking out my window,
Everything looked the same,

Night falls and each rain drop,
Has turned to fragments of ice,
Morning awakens, weary souls,
A wonderment of spectrum to behold.

No movement on the streets,
Just a shiny menagerie of icicles,
Trees bent to the earth with weight,
Slick under our feet,"Take caution feet."

We are promised sunshine soon,
Melting the ice and warming the earth,
Prosperity to our ranchers and farmers,
With an incredible day of new birth.
