As tears roll down my cheeks with joy,

I realize I have a great treasure to behold.

These are not just any tears.

Tears of happiness and joy are coming forth.

You ask me how I can shed a tear and be

happy at the same time?

My thoughts go to a place of greatness,

There in a special place dwells the spirits of all that I love.

Granny Ruth, you hold a special place in my heart.

Mom you are a real lady to me.

Never will I forget your loving touch,

When I became ill.

Son you cannot be more loved at this moment,

But you already knew that.

Dad you are my strength.

Great Grandfather, William Thomas.... memories

never fade from your hearth.

Grandmother Sarah, I never understood your actions,

But now I know your love through others eyes.

To all my pets, who know my love,

Then, you know that you are and always will be special.

Paradise and a place in my father's house

of many mansions,

And the seasons come and go,

But you dwell in my heart forever.

What could be any greater treasure?

You have your spirit in heaven.

You keep a legacy of love in my heart.

This is the treasure that no man can own,

But only the Great Spirit can give.

You earned your treasure many times over.

This Christmas Eve my thoughts will bring you near.

Always keeping the warmth inside my heart and soul.

Does anybody have a hanky near?

My joy maybe causing a flood.

My treasure is here to stay.

The Flood Goes On-

I need a hanky once more.

I feel like sinking toward the floor.

I shared my first novel as a gift to my

neighbor friend.She looked at me with joy,

but in her eyes was a very intense feeling.

Little did I know she was a victim of cancer like me.

She pulled off her hat and showed me

her hair was gone.

Like my students who looked at me, and told

me to fight this thing.

I looked her in the eyes and repeated those words.

She thought her cancer was going away,

But as one tumor decreased another came in it's place.

Weeks later as I thought the fight was going forward,

Then there the pitfall comes forth, and her friend says

she is dying now.

The cars of hospice came for several days across

the street as she was dying.

I feel once more like crying,

But I must say a flood is coming on the street today.

You will always be remembered as the

lady across the street,

Loving all the neighborhood cats, a book in one hand,

and a harmonica you played,

Now, I shall look at the little white house, as I think of

the flood rains that came.

Blessed I am to have known this special lady.

My state is flooding now, and my tears are still coming

as the flood is growing.

In the year 2016, my tears are growing for all those in this

country, who are looking for better times.

I ask myself why did it ever get this way?

When in this world does love

and caring count for anything? Education you

scare me to death. How in a state can you give money

to pro athletes and big business and cut teachers,

when there is a massive shortage? These athletes

and big businesses already make millions of dollars,

and I am seeing the decline of the basic needs of students.

This flood is going to turn into a Hurricane, and I really

fear it's coming.

Why cannot our country stop being a three-ring circus and

seek out blessings for all who live in the world. I cry for the

children of the world. I apologize, if once more my flood comes.

Tears are coming forth once more as people across Texas are flooded

by waters of the intense Hurricane "Harvey". People are crying

out to be saved from flood waters, and my heart goes out to them.
2017 Tears Still Coming-
My prayers and thoughts go out to all those who suffered this storm.

My eyes are not dry yet, because in the midst of all the damages and hurt

comes Hurricaine "Irma". This storm devastated many states and took away

once more homes and lives in the world. This touched every one of those

that I loved. They were in harms way from Florida to Georgia and also to other

states. This storm went from coast to coast and damaged the precious

"Keys of Florida" that I loved and often spent time there in my younger years.

They say I have a condition called "dry eyes" but I would not know about

that. They seem to never stop from the joy of love to the storms of life.

      Dear friend, you are very welcome. I just told you the truth about your writing and how much I got into this hub. And never, never think that your work is NOT worthwhile, for IT IS. It is very important to me, and a lot of people who love to write and be influenced by other talented writers such as yourself.

      Happy Labor Day.

      I will see you around on HP.

      Thank you Kenneth for the comment on my hub. I try to write what I feel, and sometimes I break a few rules in my style in writing poetry my way. I have not written in awhile on hub pages, because I have been working on my books. I do enjoy the ability to express my thoughts on hub pages. Thanks for reading my article.

      Very moving; touching the soul and so genuine. I loved this. I love all poetry, especially abstract/prose. You are certainly a God-gifted, inspired writer.

      This is an excellent piece of writing. Honestly, I can easily describe it as amazing.

      I loved every word. Graphics were superb. This hub was helpful, informative and I found it very interesting.

      Voted up and all the choices because you deserve it.

      You have such a gift for writing. Keep writing no matter what.
