LET ME FORGET

Let me forget how quickly
twilight gathers
when days are done.
Let me forget the cold
grey rain a bitter wind blows.
Let me forget how shadows
sometimes cover
the staying stars.
But, let me remember forever
the little victories
forgetting the scars!

**Update**
Hi everyone
Thanks to all of you who have visited me and left your kind comments on this post.
As you can see I have not been at my blog for a while nor have I visited your blogs.
I have a good reason though!
I have been sick, but am getting better.

I miss all of you and am sorry I have not been able to visit.
Hope to be back soon.
Take care everyone and thanks again for coming by.
To those of you who came by a few times checking on me, thank you
for your concern, your kindness means a lot to me and I am grateful to know such nice people!

Soon as I am feeling completely better I will be visiting your blogs, and posting a new poem.
Bye for now!

STARS

In all of our short lives we love to see
Mysterious stars in clear and shining skies.
That they are wonderful we all agree.

While still alive, late in the afternoon
We wait to see in a coming cloudless night
Numerous stars near a new or fuller moon.

We stare at stars revealed in many flares
What are these stars? How do they come to shine?
And how do they stare at us, like birds and bears?

Are there more stars, shedding a light more pure
In a hidden universe beyond our sight?
In endless guessing how can we be sure?

How long have stars and skies been what they are?
There is, of course, another endless query:
Is there eternal life upon some star?

Some think so, some more do not believe it.
Unnumbered billions, now no longer living
Died on our starlit earth, grieving to leave it!

TOAST TO FRIENDS

Caravans of people, coming, going,
This way, that way, every way,
So long as it's the way that leads home.
Back to the fireside,
With its faces dear and its homey cheer!
Its Feast of Thanksgiving and its opportunity
To be together again,
And drink a toast to Auld Lang Syne.

I'm thankful for a lot of things
Far more than I can count,
That come into my hours and days
And swell the whole amount.

I'm thankful for the game of Life
With all its odds and ends,
But let me drink a toast tonight
In gratitude for friends!

TO MY HUSBAND

I find, as the day pulls to a close
And I sit and ponder this wondrous life
That the softness I feel
Has a power that is real ...
And there's something that makes me kneel
And I say, "Dear God, how glad I am
To contentedly sit in wamth and peace
As a rest eternal will never cease!"

I find, as the day its end draws near
And I sit contented will a full heart
That contentment I know
Is real and must show ...
And I know that from this the blessings flow
And I say, "Dear God, how glad I am
To be able to know what makes me calm
Like the soothing of music, a magic balm!"

I find, as the hours close in the day
As I know and am glad I have no strife
That the one that is near
Is the one that is DEAR! ...
And I look for you, who will appear
And I say, "Dear God, how glad I am
To be blessed to have loved one such as he
And to be blessed to have him be in love with me!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

( Wishing everyone that celebrates Valentine's day....a very special day of love!)

LIFE IS A SONG

Life is a song, I know
I've lived too long to doubt that now ...
It has its melody, it's harmony ...
And sometimes seems to be ...
Oh yes, a trifle out of key!
It has its pause and rest ...
It's silence, just a test ...
To find us, you and me ...
When off our guard ...
In tune or out of it ...
Hum dum da dee!
It's twanging sharps and flats ...
Only the this and that's ...
Of every day to make for individuality ...
Life is a song, a thrilling, willing lark on wing ...
Oh, let it sing, my friend, sing, sing!

NO CHARGE

Across the Bridge to Dreamland
you can ride upon a star ...
as you sail above the pine trees ...
to a land that's very far.
From the little weedy troubles ...
in the gardens of today ...
for in Dreamland, you buy roses ...
but you never have to pay!

SLEEP

When sleep comes
Let it be gentle as
spring rain ...
Brave as the daffodil
Reaching through the
dark earth ...
Triumplantly to live
again.

Sweet as the muskiness
of roses
Blooming in deep fragrance
Showering the earth with
crimson petals ...
Frail, yet everlastingly
secure.

Vibrant and warm as the autumn
leaf
Reflecting from the sun
The color, joy and life ...
Which nature shares so happily
With all mankind

When sleep comes
Let it be silent as the snow
Quiet, pure and clean ...
That we may lie beneath the
blanket of earth's peace
Softly and serene.

A PARTING THOUGHT

May each day grant some cherished dream
and bring to all saddened hearts delight ...
May all our thoughts be touched with love ...
as peace enfolds us for the night!

BALLET OF TREES

The earth is a huge theater at night
The moon a spotlight for a fabulous ballet ...
Dancers dressed in their green flowing gowns ...
sway to the music of the soft breeze ...
to the rhythm of the wind.
They whirl in the moonlight ...
before their audience of shining stars ...
Beautiful ballerinas!
Their slim forms bending low ...
tossing their heads heavenward ...
twirling and sweeping outstretched arms ...
through the brisk evening air ...
then bowing when their dance is done!
The stars blink out with the coming dawn ...
and the green dancers fade into stately trees ...
The theater becomes a busy world!

QUATRAIN

The only love we really keep
is the love we give away ...
for both the gift and giver are one ...
and each the other will repay.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
I'm going on a weekend trip to The Mts for some skiing.
I'm very thrilled to be going, as it was a surprise from my hubby.
Leaving in the morning.
I'll be back on Monday, and will be by to visit all of my nice blogger friends then.
Thanks so much for all your visits!
It's always so special when you drop by!
