Poetry: My Sisters

Wanted to share one more excerpt in celebration of National Poetry Month. This one is from Experience Life in Poetry volume 2 (http://amzn.to/112OcQp) along with a VERY old pic!

My Sisters

They have been there since the beginning...
Since I drew my first breath
They'll be there to witness the ending
In the event of my death

They are the first to stand beside me
And comfort me when I cry
They are the first to pester and insult me
About my looks and my life

They are my biggest problem
A pain in my rear
They are my greatest joy
That I'll lose them my biggest fear

They may sometimes hurt my feelings
And hate me through and through
But they will always love me
Of this they made sure I knew

Though I may not say the words
Come struggle and strife
I will always love my sisters
For they're a wonderful part of my life

"You call me 'Teacher' and Lord and you are right, because that's what I am. And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other's feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you. I tell you the truth, slaves are not greater than their master. Nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message. Now that you know these things, God will bless you for doing them." - John 13:13-17

Poetry: Like Father Like Son

It's still National Poetry Month - in celebration here's an excerpt from Experience Life in Poetry Volume 1 (http://amzn.to/WkuPAH) along with an old pic of my boys! :)

Like Father Like Son


It seems like yesterday...
He came into our lives
We were so relieved 
When we heard the baby cry



Everyone said
He looks just like you
He's got your nose, your eyes
And your smile too



He's the spitting image they'd say
Just like his dad
But there's so much more of you
That I hope he has



Your consideration and kindness
Your generous spirit
The love you have for life
And those who are in it



Your gentlemanly behavior
Your respect for all women
Your awareness of your surroundings
And your ability to fix it



Your love for our family
Especially your son
And the way that you show it
With a kiss and a hug



So like father like son
I hope you both understand
Means our boy has become
One heck of a man
