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


11/14/12 Poetry “So Still”

In the silence, so still
Lying in wait, I do and will
For perfect love, my heart to fill

Here you are, my little one
Sent to me from God above
Pink and plump, the silence done
Sweet sounds and laughter, so much fun

Then, there too, here come the cries
Wild and frantic, capability denied
My doubts and fears become alive
Confidence, instinct gone awry

Peace and quiet soon return
Inadequacy of no concern
Giggles, coos, smiles insure
Happiness in heart affirm

As he grows and lessons learn
Make me better pages turn
My life journey no scars, no burns
Only joy no fears return

And so life goes for worse or better
Ups and downs go on forever
Life long-lived in proof and letter
Family love brings growth together
