Take Care of You

By |January 9th, 2012|

(A poem for my parents)

 

I wanna take care of you

Make your life better

Take your worries and pain away

forever and ever

If only I had that power

I want to buy you a big house,

one with a garden,

a thriving business

fulfilling your passion

 

I wanna take care of you

I don’t want you to have to fight anymore,

cry anymore

I wanna take […]

The Matriarch

By |January 4th, 2012|

All her life she walks strong

She fights and toil

She digs up soil

 

She plants good seeds

and watch them grow

Then she reaped what she sow

 

Her children, grand-children, great grand children

She has taught them how to love

How to trust in their Father above

 

From her, daughters have learnt to be mothers

And sons have learnt to be great men

who love […]

A Special Friend

By |January 2nd, 2012|

(Rosita Mcdonald)

 

I think I’ve met my special friend

And I had to leave her behind

We were just on different paths

But I wish I could’ve made her mine

 

Put her in my pocket

Carry her with me wherever I go

She means the world to me

She is my special friend you know

 

If our paths aligned

She’d be my best friend

We’d go […]

Presence

By |January 2nd, 2012|

(Dedicated to Ms. Kennedy-

a really awesome teacher)

 

It’s just not the same

Now you are not here

This room is just a room

Empty & Cold

As though it’s lost its soul

 

Nothing to smile about

No reason to shout

No reason to be glad

It makes me feel so sad

Now that you are gone

You can’t help but to notice

What has left with you

 

This […]

Smile

By |January 11th, 2011|

 (Dedicated to “The Barker Clan”)

 

Wow!

I love your smile

Your smile can light up the place for miles and miles

Your smile changes everything

It’s amazing the joy

Those rosy cheeks, adorable lips and pearly white teeth deploy

Not to mention the dimple in your chin

Seems to be a Barker family thing

Your smile makes my heart sing

“Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry […]

Cheesecake

By |February 27th, 2010|

(Rosita Mcdonald)

 

My first home-made cheesecake

Made just for me

Made by a lovely woman we call Junee

 

Made from the love of a great woman’s heart

This friendship is off to a beautiful start

She is thoughtful, kind, beautiful, talented and very smart,

I am so amazed by the love in her heart

 

The time we spent together was very short

But she […]

My Siblings

By |February 27th, 2010|

I have five siblings

Who mean the world to me

They are all a blessing for the world to see

 

I have a brother Shane

The eldest of the pack

His bossiness evolved into leadership,

Commitment, confidence and discipline

I admire, honor and respect that

 

I have a sister Joleil

The second of the crew

Her brilliance and athleticism is magnificent to view

She has a […]

Bliss

By |February 27th, 2010|

(A poem for Kenai)

 

Its bliss

A moment like this

Our first embrace

Our first meeting,

face to face

So grateful to HE

who gave you to me

Now I see

It is glee

A piece of heaven

Was inside of me

Never so handsome

Did I ever see

Never a prince

has meant more to me

Than you, my son

You are the one

The one I’ve waited for all my life

Thank […]

Legacy of Love

By |February 27th, 2010|

(For Donna Pooler)

 

God’s Angels are sent to this earth

For a very short time

How glorious the legacy they leave behind

 

The love of their heart, the glow of their soul

Sparkle brighter in our hearts than diamonds and gold

She is the Angel, God sent our way

To change our perspective day by day

 

She is HIS daughter, called back to […]
