Ice Cream and Volkswagons


I remember those days

we would eat ice cream

and never gain a pound.

Going to the Tasty Freeze

ordering chocolate on chocolate.

Sitting at the booth with my sister,

talking to our new friends

and laughing.

So easy to laugh then at everything;

even ourselves .

The Love of an Uncle


The love of an uncle

Just to be there

In the middle

Of confusion he listens

And cares .

Running Feels Like My Church…


Mom’s Birthday


It is your birthday

We cut the cake

We shared a memory

For old time sake

I am not sure if cake is there

Or parties or birthdays

But today Steph and I share

A piece of cake on this day

Your birthday 🎂

The Robin Still Sings


I woke this morning

the weight of my sister’s grief

felt like tons of sandbags.

The knowing of war felt like

an old man’s story.

I rise to find hope and wonder

as I hear a sound outside,

opening the door I know

as I hear;

the robin still sings…

Peace


I walked among the trees and stopped to say hello. The sweetness of his greeting gave me to know.

God still exist ❤️

The Children’s Virus


He put his arm around me

Told me it was going to be ok.

This virus will not last forever 

It will not stay…

My uncle told me that he loved me

the virus will go away

the vaccines are helping

this virus will not stay.

He will be a friend to call on

or a buddy to play ball

a confidant to share with

the switch games and all.

He put his arm around me

told me it was going to be ok.

The virus will not last forever,

this virus will not stay.

Love
