Bonnie Harding


Life is full of ups and downs
marriage, divorce, all year through.
sad day, happy day, smile, frown
birth, death and you mark one year down
The next years a little different.but oh its quite the same
There's good times and bad, happy memories and sad
a few storms and some rain, if we're lucky a little fame
We get old and tired and our time has come
Did our best and whats done is done
There may be sorrow, grief and maybe a tear
some wanting to have one more year
I say life likes to keep knocking you down
And you only find peace when there is no sound.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
