My Dad

Hi everyone, I first want to start off by apologizing, that there was no post last week, as unforeseen things happened that was taken out of my hands, as I spent last week in the hospital.

This post is about my dad who we sadly lost seven years ago today. He wasn’t just an amazing dad, he was an amazing husband and Grandad too, that loved nothing more than being surrounded by his family, always playing host at family parties, barbeques, you name it, he would do it. He would always be the first person to put his hand up and so eager to spend his time with the family. You are sadly missed every day. So today is dedicated to him.

Seven Years Ago Today

Seven years ago, today,
Was not a good day?
As you left a big hole,
I know that wasn’t your goal,
But still… they took your soul.

It’s been so long,
Since you’ve been gone,
The years have flown by
And I still wonder why,
You had to die.

We never had a chance to mourn,
As our world that day had been torn,
I hope you can now be free,
Sitting underneath your orange blossom tree,
But you will always be a part of me.

There is so much you have missed,
Like your eldest grandchild in wedded bliss,
And now she has a baby on the way,
I know that would have made your day.

Your youngest grandchild is making her mark,
Including in the dreaded dark,
Like you… she has a passion for photography,
Her photos and drawings would blow you away,
If only they had let you stay on that fateful day.

There’s so much for us to share,
You’ll have to wait until we get there,
Until then you will have to wonder,
As you sit there and just ponder.

Thank you for taking the time to read this special post. I also want to thank you for being patient with me, but everything will resume back to normal on Thursday. Have a good weekend and I will see you soon.

Bravery

Hi everyone, today’s post is about bravery, for all those who risk their lives everyday for us. I applaud you and commend you and I thank you

To be bestowed
With bravery,
Is to go beyond,
Your road.
And sacrifice,
One’s life.
For someone
You do not know.

You have to wither,
Many storms,
As bravery comes,
In many forms,
You are the best,
Of humanity,
To stop…
All this insanity.

The hours…
You’ve devoted,
As you’re…
Bravery is noted,
So we…
Applaud you,
For all…
That you do,

I say to you,
A big thank you,
From the bottom,
Of our hearts.

Bye for now. Stay safe and I will see you all back here next week!

Once Upon A December Night

Once upon a December Night,
A fire burned there so bright,
There I found you curled up tight,
Underneath the candle light,

Outside was white as snow,
The moonlight shone and made it glow,
Crunch crunch it went under toe
The temperature there was very low,
It had now gone below zero.

Once upon a December night,
I could see you in my sight,
I squealed with such delight,
As you came to me tonight.

Halloween Night

When days grow short and nights get cold
And autumn trees turn red and gold,
Move, we may, through sun-drenched days
‘Midst leaves and berries and bales of hay.

In our hearts we feel the lure
Toward darkness, shivers, and things not pure,
While ghostly shadows creep slowly by,
Spying on witches and brooms that fly.

Icy fingers that grab their prey
And do bad things ’til night turns to day.
Heed this plea to stay inside.
Find covers and blankets and sheets to hide.

Slowly this night will fade today
And fiends and monsters will crawl away.
Once a year, on this dank night,
We’ll shake and shiver ’til morning light.
