NEAR PERFECT

 

Could every day be as lovely as this…

As sweet as pure honey

As warm as a kiss.

Near perfect, I say, as I savor the day,

Still knowing too well

It shall soon fade away.

 

The smell of the season caresses the air,

And the sun seems to sparkle

As it offers a dare…

To all who would venture to bask in its glow,

Forever entrapped in the warmth of its flow.

 

As I stroll down the lane, entranced by the day

Echoes of voices in my mind are replayed.

My eyes close a moment and there…still in my heart—

Are the faces and laughter of children I knew.

 

Each teasing and laughing…

Till caught in my arms,

As they call “Mama look”—once again I am charmed.

Yet, this day, “nearly perfect”

Shall soon fade away,

As quick as the children who long ago strayed.

 

Still deep in my heart, they all are a part

Of the memories and treasures

                                                     l store in my heart.

 

The pond where we fished,

The trails that we blazed,

Hunting for rocks on bright summer days.

That tents that we built—the songs we all sung

Forever replayed

Even though they’re long gone.

FOOL'S DILEMMA (Poem)

Message 6 of 6

 

FOOL’S DILEMMA

 

8/12/99

 

People punish people

Who else is there to blame?

Place all our faults upon another…

Just take another aim.

 

It’s easier and safer to hurt somebody’s pride

And tell ourselves that we are right…

Then look someone squarely in the eye.

 

Who cares about the other guy

Who gives a darn, it’s true…

Life is too short to play the fool

So, I will spit on you.

 

God was hung upon a cross

He taught the Golden Rule.

I wonder who the fool is now,

Perhaps, it could be you?
