My Dad was the greatest inspiration to me. He never complained, was never sick that I knew of. I miss him coming to drink coffee, but he lives on in my heart.
This is a love poem for my husband. I was so afraid when we met that he would see that at first sight I had fallen for him. I prayed and prayed he would love me the way I did him. When he asked me to marry him, I cried all the way home. I forgot to say yes until after I had already told my...
I wrote this little poem to try and explain to my young grandson that loving and leaving girls just isn't right. I tried to be a little crazy with it but still get the point across.
Sitting by my window one night I was gazing out looking at all the stars I see. The wonder of them really got me thinking about the love of God making such a night sky for all of us to look at and admire.
I found this picture of my grand mother on my father's side and his sister a while back. I didn't have many of her and none which had my aunt in it. I was thrilled that I could restore it to this condition.
A young woman's love for the man she is about to marry. It can be sweet, silly and even inspirational.
There have been so many children in the news abused and killed by parents that this poem came to me one night. I hope you understand this one.
I heard about an event almost like this one about a little girl who was killed by her mother. It broke my heart to see the father of the child heartbroken and I felt his side of the pain felt should be known somehow.
This poem is about a case of verbal and physical abuse suffered by a person I came into contact with while I worked. It was so sad and hurtful. Yet within a year the husband got counseling and today they are a thriving and happy family.
This is the last picture I took of the old house on the hill. I love old buildings. They tell of a simpler time and way of life.
This poem is about a marriage which really seemed to dissolve and then out of the blue they found they still loved each other and couldn't live apart. This rarely if ever happens in real life, but I know this happened at least once, for this is a true story. After twelve years of mostly happy...
I was inspired to write this poem from the news about a child who had gone missing that winter. I get inspirations from different things and I can't rest until I write it down. Some times this calls for some late night time with my computer and me.
When I was separated from my husband the most healing thing for me was writing poetry about my feelings. This really helped me to release the pain and the anger.
This poem I wrote to my husband who was working 2nd shift at the time. We had just reunited after a four month separation. We have been married now for 37 years. We have learned to give and take and share.
My daughters and I have always had a very close relationship. They both live close by and are happily married. This poem I wrote when they were young. We have kept our bond close all through the years. I have always been there for them and they for me. I am so very proud of both of them.
My two daughters were special but my Grandchildren are even more so. I think because I am older and more able to spend quality time with them.
The Lord has carried me through all of life's ups and downs. He is my lifeline.
This poem I wrote after witnessing my granddaughter's first time saying grace in a packed Cracker Barrel while we were on vacation.
I love to write poetry and just want to share some of it with you. I would like feedback on what everyone thinks about them.
