12/13/12 Poetry “Meant To Be

Meant To Be

You and me were meant to be
Now you are our family

Sent by chance, loved by choice
The missing link–Gods work, of course

When youth was here two blessings were given
Sad to say no girls from Heaven

There was a plan from up above
One I had no thoughts nearly of

You came to me by way of birth
Your parents trusted us at first

At the time God called your mom to home
She gave me Mike to have and hold

You came later, a fate to be
And now a daughter you are to me

So much love and gratitude I feel
Loved and cared for, that’s the deal

Grateful for your mother’s love
You and Mike fit like a glove

It was to be four, not two
All because of Mike and you

11/12/12 Poetry “Embrace The Day”

 

Sunny here in LA

Peace, calm with no delay

In the east, Sandy came

The perfect storm or so they say.

Waters rising, death, debris

Ships on shore, where they came to be.

Power lines lay, sparks fly

Dangers lurk, things gone awry.

But here in LA, the sun is high

The winds calm with a vacant blue sky

In the news we hear today,

“Enjoy your morning, embrace the day.”

Now I sit and watch TV,

A path of wreckage and despair, I see.

Anxiously waiting for daylight

As darkness all that lies in sight.

Hit most hard, the Jersey shore

Gone, erased as if battle torn

People wade thru water waist high

Pets displaced, rescue teams go by

But here in LA the sun is high

The winds calm with a vacant blue sky.

In the news we hear today,

“Enjoy your morning, embrace the day.”
