The Pastor's Wife
She serves in a position she had not sought for in her life She simply fell in love with a man called into ministry, You may know her; she’s the pastor’s wife.
Snowflakes a-fallin', in the kitchen Mom's callin', 'You youngins' get out of that bed! ' The day's now a-wastin', the biscuits a-bakin' And I got lots to do 'ere ye're fed.

Father Poetry: A Fathers Tribute
FATHERS Fathers … They are strong
I’ll Put Some Coffee On
The time has finally come, there is no one here now and I’m alone. I shouldn’t be surprised, for loneliness is the story of my life. I have the rope ready and my stool, now I will put on this tight sweatshirt to secure my arms, just in case I change my mind. But, I know I won’t, I just have to end this suffering, I hope to God I have the courage to see it through.
The Creation Poem
The Creation Poem The birds and the bees, the flowers and trees, The stars in the sky, the little butterflies;
This anchor shall hold in adversity, When all else does threaten to give way; This anchor keeps my vessel from drifting, Never letting my ship run astray.
A Tree Perspective
I've seen you in this barren space Standing majestically tall, I've gazed upon your elegance From winter through to fall.
Father poetry: Fathers Are
Fathers… Are faithfull, strong and true, Providing for our needs; They give us words of truth,
A Rainbow Is...
A Rainbow is… An undeniable natural beauty, Appearing mysteriously,
When I chose To burn my bridges to you, O what a stupid choice I made; For I burned my fingers with the matches.

An Old Soldier
A Tribute to all veterans, and all of our brave soldiers, God bless you!
Friend, I have faced many a difficult battle,
Dangerous missions requiring real backbone.
As a soldier, I have encountered hard times,
But this trip was the toughest one I had known.
My feet became heavy, but still I advanced...
Moving down the long hallway to where he lay;
This man was my best friend and fellow soldier,
But I had received news he would die today.
His room was now only a few feet from me;
I became frozen, standing there at his...
