Blue & Gold
called him a friend
to his blue & gold I went
they said we were cute
he in his suit
and acting like a gent
took me my plate
pulled my chair out of place
and took my coat to hang
we were just kids
who'd thought of this
as anything less than a date
my friend he was then
and will be again
when one day we meet somewhere
he'll say hi with a smile
we'll talk for a while
and he'll probably pull out my chair.
A Love Remembered
The year was 1975
My mom had just died
Thought the world was going to end
Then you came into my life my friend
Walked the tracks you and I
To OOB and back
Made a house out in the woods
Some would call a shack
My palace it was the place where I
Could go to get away
Feel like a queen when you were there
Hoping you'd always stay
Time stood still when we were there
In our space out in the woods
If only it could last a lifetime
Somehow I'd wished it would
Then it happened one really sad day
I had to move again
Then to leave and never see
My true love, my best friend.
We'd maybe one day meet on the street
And perhaps we'd say hello
If only we'd notice each other then
But what if we were too old
Could two people change so much as to
Not be able to know their name
If one day they walked into a room
Would they even feel the same
I know one day your smile I'll see
When least I expect to find
That day we'll meet and be best friends
The memories that once were mine
Will hold on in my heart forever more
To those memories of yesterday
Hoping somewhere you remember too
The things that we used to say
I remember the bowling alley we would go
And play pinball all day long
And the look on your face when the radio
Would play a certain song
"Muskrat Love" I used to play
Till you could take no more
But never did you complain
That's what true loves for
To do together what you like
And what I like then too
Together doing what we want
Was the way with me and you
I listen deep within my heart
And hope that you are there
Happy with your family
But knowing that I care.
walk down the aisle
It all began
with just a smile
We kissed, who would have known
that first night, when love we made
The months ahead could surely show
Your love in my heart remained
We kissed, who would have guessed
That night that you rushed to see
Your baby girl with whom we were blessed
Will never meet her Daddy
I hear the bells
walk down the aisle
An Angel now
I see your smile.
Death is eternal sleep,
silent and slow.
Like a blackbird,
frozen by snow.
It's sad, quiet and all,
But God has His reasons for it all.
Death is fearful to most
But we have to realize life
isn't a fairlyand
Facing the facts is hardest
Especially if it's someone
you care for, love
Death is forever,
But you got to remember,
God has His reasons for
each dying member.
To be the President
From the north pole to the south
And it takes alot on everyone's part
Including the old and the youth.
It takes love, peace and togetherness
One person could never handle it,
Even the president has help from others
Without it he'd be in a pretty bad predicumit.
Sometimes I wonder how hard it must be
To make all the rules and the laws
Some people like you, some barely do
Because the decision doesn't fit their needs and flaws
It must be an awful title to hold
Especially during rough times like now,
Infation, overpopulation, crimes and more
Are in the paper and left to you somehow.
No, I don't think I'd ever want to be
The president of any country or place
I just like being an everyday citizen
Watching all the hatred and disgrace
At least this way I cna't havve the blame
Pointed and pined onto me
Because there are too many things wrong with the world
To fix them would take more than we can see
Written for My Nanny & Dedicated to the DJ's at WPOR radio station, Portland, ME
(This poem was written for my grandmother who spent many of her years listening to the radio
because she lived alone. She told me one day when I was 14 that she wanted to do something
special for them to let them know how important they were in her life, and I wrote this poem.
It was sent to the radio and posted in their backroom for many years, the DJ's today probably
don't know it exists and don't realize that there are probably many more out there that feel as she did,
that have only them (the radio people) to feel like a friend is near..... thank you for touching my grandmothers life, and many more!!! )
WPOR Disc Jockeys
I sit and listen to the radio
Thinking of you all day long, .
Hoping that I may be lucky
And you'll play my favorite song.
"Thank you for touching my life,"
"Ann", and many more,
Dick Curless and Tommy Overstreet
Can really even the score.
You help me get to sleep at night
And help me make it through the day,
You've helped me through some lonely times
When evereyone else was away,
I know you're always there
With just a little turn and a click,
Then I can hear a voice and relax
How I wish people could come so quick.
It really can get lonely With no one around but me,
So I feel like I'm with real close friends,
When I hear you, even though your're not there to see.
You're all my favorite disc Jockeys
And I think you ought to know,
That you've touched my life with happiness
And set my heart aglow.

The sun is wonderful t us here on earth,
He takes away sadness and fills us with mirth
His bright glow keeps us warm all of the day.
And sometimes I wish Mr. Sun never'd go away.
I wake up in the mornign and he's shiny and bright,
Shining through my window where it's been dark all night
In the summer he makes it fun for the beach,
But in the winter Mr. Sun is too far out of reach.
He melts all our snow so we can't have any fun,
Then he goes back to hiding waiting for more snow to come.
I think that h's jealous of winter in a way,
Because when the snow falls, he takes it away.
I like Mr. Sun, I like his warmth and bright glow,
But I wish in the winter he'd leave alone Mr. Snow
Beacuae just like Mr. Sun, Mr. Snow has feeling, too.
How you ld you feel if someone kept melting you?
Well, Mr. Snow and Mr. Sun are enemies right now,
But in the future they'll be friends, we hope, and how!
Cuddle them close and hear them purr
Cute little kittens love to play with yarn and little toy beads
Cute little kittens soon become cats
then aren't so cute and go round chasing rats
how I wish that they could stay cuddly and small
and never turn into a cat at all.
