A Faithful Friend
How many of you can find a faithful friend? That will stick close by you unto the very end When trouble comes they will never forsake Always ready to give more than they will take
No Room for Hate
I went to a house and walked up to the gate A man came outside and his name was called Hate He asked me a question would you like to come in? I then thought for a moment hate is no kin
If I Could Fly
If I could fly high in the air like the birds up above Then seek out any person that doesn't know how to love Looking down upon the earth and seeing all of its glory Take to the sky like the morning dove and tell the all time story
Watching all of the sweet smiles on a loved ones face Running around the race track and keeping up the pace Touching the dew drops glistening on the wet ground Going out to dinner then stepping out on the town
On a Mission
He woke me up this morning To see a brand new day So grateful for His mercy I then knelt down to pray
An Angel Just For Me
As I was walking through the woods on a warm Summer day Then saw an Angel up ahead as I went along my way My reaction to this Angel was not borne out of fear I began to speak softly for I knew that she could hear
The Family Tree
A tiny seed is sown with care into the fertile ground Then a small tree pops out slowly from its earthly mound With care it is nurtured by the life giving soil and air The branches then began to reach as if to someone near
Lifes Curve Balls
As we go through this journey called life We're thrown many curve balls along the way We can either catch them or let them fall You may run fast, slow or even not at all
You woke up this morning To see the bright sunshine You had food on your table Was in your right mind
Dear Old Dad
You were the kind of daddy that nurtured us to grow We were taught early in life you reap just what you sow Hard work you would always say never killed anyone You rose early and toiled all day till the setting of the sun
A Member To Remember
May never get to see your face Will love you ever just in case Visits to PH as a big family A Poet member we will always be
Love has cast a spell on me Drowning in its deep blue sea Mesmerized by a love so true Fresh and sweet as the morning dew
Spreading the Fire
Spreading of secrets all around town Will not build up can only tear down Striking of words with such heavy blows When someone gets hit everybody knows
Cast all of your cares on Him When troubles come your way Lift up your eyes unto the hills Then see a bright new day

A Faithful Friend
How many of you can find a faithful friend?
That will stick close by you unto the very end
When trouble comes they will never forsake
Always ready to give more than they will take
A friend like that is so very hard to find
One you can count on to talk and unwind
Someone that's concerned about how you feel
Cares for you deeply with a love that's real
A friend when in need is a friend indeed
Show yourself friendly by sowing the seed
How sweet are the words spoken between friends
Just like a balm that heals or a needle that mends
A friend that ...
