Love Outlives All

Hey Dad – I can feel you
I know you’re out there
Always here in my heart
Nearby in the air

Like a whisper in the breeze
Or rustle out of sight
The glint in a dew drop
Or the star shining bright

In the chorus of morning
In the day’s melody
Just nudging my conscious
That you’re not far away

For your spirit is in me
Your laughter, your love
Always reigning in harmony
On my soul, from above

And so this first birthday
I now have without you
Is imbued with your presence
Will be happy not blue

For you’re here – omnipresent
Not in a distant place
For love outlives all
And is a blessing and grace

To My Girl On Her 21st

So radiant and so beautiful
My girl who shines so bright
Be endowed with your dearest dreams
With joy and pure delight

And go forth hence from this your day
With confidence imbued
Enough to know your mind yet still
With heart that glows love true

And aspire to your destiny
Walk with grace on your pathway
Be happy; embrace peace and have
A blessed Happy Birthday

My Boy

Dedicated to my son on his 18th birthday.

My boy!  Now all grown to a man
An icon to the rest
A man who always works so hard
And always does his best
A man who’s learnt to carry on
When all else may just fall
A man that holds his head up high
And stands up straight and tall

Content in knowing his true worth
Determined to achieve
To go that little bit further
And yet through live has weaved
Compassion, care; integrity
That seeks as much as finds
A man who’s turning 18 now
Has fortitude of mind

And so my wish for my grown boy
Is honour truth but more
To walk a path responsibly
With love; respect ensure
And go forth into adulthood
Equipped to serve and live
A citizen of world order
That takes less than he gives

Sour Grapes

The only way to take your grapes
Is as a glass of wine.
For sour grapes just don’t hit the spot
And really just ain’t fine
So trample grapes all softly
Sit back and then enjoy
A glass of red or white or pink
A taster to employ
A means to otherwise forget
Those ones that might be sour
For grapes in wine are better – yes?
At any time or hour!

English: Wine grapes from the Guadalupe Valley...

Chocolate Cake

Have your cake and eat it up
No problem we all say
For chocolate cake is just the best
On each and every day
With cream oozing from centre and
Choccie dripping from the top
With sprinkles, buttons, flakes in droves
As well as chocolate drops
And rich rich velvet nominess
Confection of delight
Will not last long on plate or fork
Unless right out of sight

Birthday Candles

Birthday candles, burning bright
Enough to set the house alight
And give sufficient heat to still
Warm up the room lest pay the bill
“For how many?”  I hear you say
“So many candles for one day!”
But fear not though through C O 2
We’ll sing happy birthday to you!

Part of this year's twenty. Geez, I'm getting old.
