In Gratitude I Bow

_______________________________ In silence and in prayer................. _______________________________ For those who gave everything and never failed to protect for those who left loved ones and tried hard not to look back for those who made it home and for those who's spirits flew on... For you my hat is off in Gratitude I thank God for people like you.. I remember with thanksgiving in painful facets from within each man and women who fought for this country until the bitter end.. Come home my proud soldiers come home once again come home my mighty soldiers come home to mend... In Gratitude I bow... _______________________________ A Debbie Guzzi Contest

A Book of Soul for The Heartwarmer

One individual called "she" stepped into the sheets of a life story
Sheets that used to be occupied
She walked back and stopped at a chapter which tell the story of an obsolete chamber
A space which stands for behalf of the memory and wounds

A diorama played by shadow
A story with no beginning nor end
They've been there with decent backgrounds and decent light spectrum but called gray
The view was frozen, the chatter was muted, and that feels fell into the melancholy

Those with the outstretched hands which too high to be reached
Those with the self existence but too blind to be seen 
They abandoned as a figure of reserves without knowing the essence of a solace

And that individual creature went on her way back to the labyrinth of time

This time someone seized by the story of a root baste
Those roots were heart in shape and the hue carved a warmth, but once howled a bitterness
This chapter tells the story of a lush tree with the fruit of love
Fruits that contain the complexity of love, passion and a place to berth

And the fruit of love revealed its story to someone

Those who hide behind their false mannerism had carved their name on her shoulder
Those who have offered their hearts and bent on their knees 
Those who play fire in a lust, fell into a seek
But the love that she wants still unable to cover the part of this story

From the fruit of love to the sheet's of light

This chapter tells the story of an old house with extensive bed of flowers
This house represented the aesthetics, peace and harmony
A house which brings relief, spaciousness and joy
In that house she knelt, release all her mess
To the house the journey was anchored

In every sketches that have been through
None could live without the presence of others too

Obsolete chamber, lush love tree, beautiful bed flowered old house
Those who were involved in each story of the bulkhead of life
Those who were crawling along and came from different angles of infinity
Those who were instantly filled the pieces of shoot and became the shoot

They are the perfect gift for the imperfect souls
Not as a complement nor as a reserves
Yet as the major part of the heartwarming life story

My smile

A good dentist is hard to find
the treatments ok
it's the paying I mind.
The background music
makes me relax,
fillings, extractions
you just have the knack.
I'm glad that I don't need
to come back for a while,
And I'd just like to thank you
for giving back my smile.

A word From Your Bartender

Listen here, buddy,
I'm in control.
If you don't like it,
Then go for a stroll.

There is more than one exit,
And I can give you directions.
I don't care what you think,
 I don't need your objections.

I can get to be  a b---h,
In two seconds flat.
I can also be a sweetheart,
There's no question of that.

But here's the bottom line,
It always goes my way.
Do what you like,
Just do as I say.

Written for bartenders everywhere. From a bartender whose seen quite a lot. So 
please give your respect to your local bartender. Especially when she only one 
working, and she's bouncing a fight by herself.

my new resting place

Now that im up off the floor, my legs they feel so funny 
No more hustling for me because my aunt provides the money
No more of that floor , the bed is where lay
I'll try my best to do good because the bed is where I'll stay
its been a long time coming from that floor to this bed .
its a good thing that I decided to leave because i could have ended up dead

                                                                  PART 2 OF ''FROM THE FLOOR UP''

The purple heart

There's a story id like to tell,
about a strong and brave marine,
a man to be called a true hero,
for all hes been through and seen.
You see this marine was far from home,
serving his country, and fighting with pride,
doing a job only a few can do,
with those very few by his side.
One day he set out,
on a mission that's better left untold,
this marine couldn't have seen it coming,
as a series of events unrolled.
This marine was severly wounded,
and now has to live with the scars of war,
but even though he has a long road ahead,
he'll always remember what he was fighting for.
In honor of this marine,
who did more than his part,
we salute, and thank you,
with the purple heart.

Friends For Life

I can't tell you how much your friendship means
How dear you are to me
Please always feel free to ask
When you need help to set you free
I can't think what I would do
If you were not a part of my life
I have so much respect for all that you do
I 'd like to think you'd call me if you were in strife.

My dear friend no matter where you go
whatever you do with your life,
Remember I'm the one whose here for you
A friend you can trust and on who you can rely.
You gave me hope and inspiration
You saw me through hardship and pain
You gave the things that I needed most
With you in my life I have so much to gain..

I can't stop thinking about you each day
Or about the help you have given to me
Our friendship is something I'll always hold dear
It is made of our spirits, that are wild and free
Thank you for all the memories we've  made
Along life's pathways that we together went along
We sang and we laughed on this journey of friends
Our friendship is special it will always live on.

As the tears roll down my face

As the tears roll down my face 
I worry bout how I'm going to make it 
As the tears roll down my face 
I'm crying because I'm scared 
As the tears roll down my face
I see blury things
Maybe this is how my life always been
I can't see or breath without air 
As the tears roll down my face
I lift my head up and pray
Thanking GOD day after day
As the tears roll down my face
I hold my head up high, cause I fell strong 
As the tears roll down my face 
I wipe my face, because the past is the past
So I got to move on

Thank You for Your Sacrifice

Help given is a wonderful thing.
Giving of your time is quite suitable.
Giving your money, unselfishness showing.
Laboring to clean this world is also very noble.

Yet there is one type of person that stands out
The one that says I will go at the drop of a ball.
Not asking why or where on the commanded shout,
But, stands ready and willing to heed the call.

These are the ones that protect our freedom.
That give us a security that not many know.
They leave families not sure when they will see them.
They sign their name not knowing where they will go.

Our armed forces are the elite of humanity.
They serve not only the US but humankind.
Some giving their life, some their sanity.
All to protect the ones they leave behind.

So I say THANK YOU to the families of the graves now visited.
For the time you have given and family memories lost.
I say THANK YOU, to each veteran and those now enlisted.
For you go even though some have and will pay the ultimate cost.

T houghtfully open heart in thankfulness
H onoring God for graciousness, unlimited access

A nd remeber all things in appreciativeness
N ot forgetting air we breath, blue sky we have in excess

K nights and princesses; children of the Living God
S ing a joyful song praising Him don't put on grand facade

G ive of yourself in thanks and rejoice in His love
I nvite the Holy Spirit to dwell within your heart dove

V ictory can be yours each step of the way my friend
I f time in God's presence in praise and worship daily spend

N ow is the time in His presence and purpose to remain
G ratitude said for all of life's pleasures even life's pain.

S tillness and quiet each day spend time thank God for each and everyone

This is a combination Acrostic and couplets..
My understanding that Acrostics do not rhyme but mine is actually couplets written in poulter's measure..A person who sold eggs would sometimes give a dozen eggs for a price and sometimes if the hens were laying extra good a person would get 14 eggs of the same price..Lucky them..So 12/14 in rhyming couplets..

There have been times in our land
When our nation has had to take a stand.

It first began at Bunker's Hill
Where so many men were then killed.

All through that war with the British King
Men here in America were fighting and dying.

They were the first "Veterans" of the US,
When duty calls, there was always a surplus.

Always men of courage it takes it seems
Like those with Jackson at New Orleans.

There were "Veterans" who fought both South and North
When the country was split, her sons poured forth.

Healing those wounds would take some time
But in the end it came in line.

Of course no one remembers the row with Spain
Where America sent her men once again.

The "War to End All Wars" was more than a saying
As loved ones and sweethearts were left home praying.

Oh, Chateau Thierry, the Argonne, Belleau Wood and more
Are now in our history as battles of that war.

Then came the biggest war of all
When the world went crazy in '39's Fall.

Our "Veterans" were there too,
In Africa, Europe, and the Katmandu.

From Casablanca and Casserein on Africa's shore,
To Sicily, Anzio, Normandy, and the Bastogne's of that war.

The Pacific saw its share of death and hell
From the first bombs at Pearl Harbor to Gaudalcanal.

Many "Veterans" died at Iwo Jima, Saipan, Okinawa too,
They shed their blood for me and you.

After the end, we thought we might have some order,
Until the Communists in Korea crossed the border.

The Vietnam era was one of upheaval and race,
Some "Veterans" coming home even received a spit in the face.

For their part the "Veterans" were not to blame,
And for our country, it was a time of shame.

Dessert Storm and Dessert Shield put them in the MidEast
Where terror reigns with sate for a feast.

Yet, the soldier, sailor, or airman know,
If his country calls, he must go.

They follow the traditions of other "Veterans" you see,
They put their lives on the line for both you and me.

To the ones who have worn our country's uniform I say
"Thank You, Veteran", we should honor you with more than one day!

Blame it on the alcohol

4 Dimensional girl
In a 3 dimensional world
I always feel out of sync
So I drink
Funny how wine
Makes me feel fine
Being in this world but not of it

Please Be Patient

My dear and wonderful friends
Please be patient with me
I have twenty one of you to 
Thank you see.

Tomorrow I head for Casper
Trying to find the answer
Where I will live out there
Be it buying or renting I don't care.

The weather took a turn
Fooled us all so I must run
Got to get there and back I hope
Get me come answers so I can cope.

Love you and will pick up 
Where I left off when I get back. 
It will be  a week or so 
If I have good luck or it does snow.

Giving Thanks

Great is the need for the multitude
In their hour of pain of great solitude
Voices seem to come from everywhere
In their hearts time seems to be despair 
Never grasping the reality of grace
Given by many for the human race

Those that don’t seem to notice kindness
Having seen it every day of their existence
And they seem to struggle each day
Not giving thanks and gentleness away
Knowing that there are many that need
Some thanks that we can give indeed

How This Started

The room was unusually dark that tinny night,
As music and laughter replaced the light,
Toasts were given for proud glories earned,
As horrors of war exploded and burned.

My warrior father, the subject of such great acclaim,
My worrier mother forgot to bring me a plate,
And my brothers all dressed in their best Sunday clothes,
Had to act proper and do as they were told.

For the party they would roam,
While I remained quietly in my room,
...beyond the stares of the crowd,
And people in whom Dad was proud.

I was free from ties and shoes,
I was free from table manner rules,
But I missed being included,
And grew tired of being secluded.

You see, way back in the day,
Everyone knew the proper way,
To hide a retarded kid,
Especially one who looked as I did.

But I really have to tell you it was great,
I mean you didn't even have to sit up straight,
Then at seven it came crashing down,
I accidentally proved I was mentally sound.

With a simple operation to uncross my eyes,
And a few simple tests for I.Q. size,
The kid with promise grew from that kid retarded,
And that, my friend, was just how this started.

Thank You Lofty Hearts

There have always been those with lofty aspirations, And then, there are those with the more lofty hearts. The first may seek to build with donations, But the second will dig in to do their part. Lofty hearts will help their neighbors. They will be there for moral support. They will always bend to do the labor, That will cut the time of need, to short. They are careful to nurture the elderly, Then so very protective of the young. They handle emergencies so expertly, As their song so often goes unsung. But a thank you is always in order, If we would only open our eyes. For as they dissipate the disorder, They bring thankful tears to the souls who cried. Thank you for your heart Thank you for easing the pain. And Thank You for easing those cries, With the hope and love that your lofty heart contains. Dedicated to my fathers neighbors Judy and John Who were the first responders to help save him from the dark.

So Much To Be Thankful for

In my life so wonderful
I have many, many blessings 
To share with you, a few this day
Though many I am missing.

My family...and most of all...
My husband.
My home - so full of life
My garden - lush and vibrant
My job - my livelihood
My city - thriving and dynamic
Health - it allows me to enjoy the rest!
Opportunities for growth (they are everywhere)
My ability for self expression
My desire for knowledge
The safety I enjoy,
Living in my bountiful country
The food in my kitchen
The clothes in my closet
My flaws - they make me unique and interesting
My attributes - they balance out the flaws 
And finally, most of all,
Thankful for
Who I am and the life I live...
A great blessing indeed!

Simple things

I appreciate the simple things in life.
Just  a smile.
A person walking by saying hi.
A person asking me, "how was your day?"
A person asking if everything is ok.

 He always say,"I love you" and kisses me goodnight.
I love it when he tells me,you make me the happiest man in the world.
He says"I'm happy that you're my wife."

I love  a simple conversation about just anything,
anything that comes to mind.
He tells me this girl is cute.
I tell him this dude is fine.

I appreciate the simple things in life.
Like a  phone call.
If I don't answer,Leave a message.
It's better than not calling at all.
You know I always return your call.
I apprecaite the simple things in life.

Daddy Your My Hero

Daddy I remember, I was probably about three, all the times you made me laugh, like when 
you tickled me.

Daddy I adored you, even when I made you mad, youv'e always taken care of me, through 
the good times and the bad.

Daddy I remember, when you would play guitar, and we would sing to grandma, to me you 
were a star.

Didn't have much money, and when mom went away, you worked, cleaned and cooked for 
us, and taught us how to pray.

Then one day I turned sixteen, a real tough age for me, didn't always think things through 
and acted selfishly.

All I ever meant to do was make you proud of me, I'm sorry if I wasn't who you expected 
me to be.

Daddy I was hurting too, you also caused me pain, and just like you I sometimes felt I was 
about to go insane.

Daddy it is true that you have given me a lot, because you only wanted me to have the 
things you never got.

Daddy I appreciate the things youv'e bought for me, but the happiest Iv'e ever been was 
when we barely had a thing.

The love and trust between us then was very special to me, and there's no amount of money 
that could replace those memories.

Daddy what I'm getting at is no matter what you do, there's nobody else on earth that could 
ever hold a candle to you.

Because it takes a special man to raise two kids alone, nobody helped you do it, you did it 
on your own.

Daddy your my hero, the good times outweigh the bad, because God gave me the best 
daddy a girl could ever have.

Please Read

I googled the internet  “Contest Poems for money”
I didn't know what I was doing since I didn't have many

But, I needed a way to vent with words I could use to create
Taking me to worlds I would appreciate

Much therapy needed, I thought I had found a way
Writing was an outlet I had discovered that day

Poetry Soup was the name of the game
I clicked on the icon, and enrolled my name

I found an old poem from my wedding day
So, I thought I would put it on display

Two comments appeared in my “In-box”
I replied and things began to unlock 

I have various poems of all types
And friends write me, this I like

They support me through my struggles with grief
Poetry Soup was what gave me relief

Thank you to all my friends in cyberspace 
And, thank you to PS for providing a creative place!

Today The Calendar Has Something to Say

Upon hanging a new set
  up on my wooden cabinet 
    I put red marks on the days that was meaningfully done

Where I count the numbers 
  from the first number that is one
     down from the last possible day that is the number thirty-one

Where I wait for the long years
  to pass all the things that caused me fears
    starting from the weeks up to the very short days

It was still vivid in my mind
  where there are colorful fireworks you will find
    A new year starting on a happy January

It was a sunny day in February
  and all people were very happy
    for it was the month of love for all to share

I am nervous this month of March
  for I am on the stage for a ballet dance
    yet I am very happy because sharing my talents was a chance

Sadness was within my heart this April
  when my favorite grandpa died
   it was a gray morning when all of us cried

Wedding day the traditional way
  My aunt was glowing
    that month of May love was overflowing

You're all invited this 23rd of July
  because it was my birthday
    lots of foods and balloons are on your way

Days and months had passed and now it's December
  Christmas lights are bright and the nights are cold
     It is the season for great storied to be told

Upon seeing this old and dusty calendar
  things from the past came back onto my sight
    memories that are bad or good and dark or light

All are special and will always be a part of me
  even I bought a new one today
    I'll keep this old one to be remembered everyday

Thank You

Thank you Lord for another day
for the knowledge you've given me to lead my way
For all my lessons learned
and allowing actions to speak louder than words
Thank you for my woman's intuition, the strength to let go
and the love in my heart that continues to grow
I have faith you will lead me where I need to go.

& I’m just so thankful that you’re all still around,
that I didn't burn all of my bridges right down,
that I haven't exceeded the times I'm allowed
to call you and tell you how simply the sound
of your voice through the years kept my feet on the ground.

Will it kill us to say a simple thank you
To the ones that have help us
In one way or another
Will it kill us to say a simple thank you
To the ones that have done right for us

Will it kill us to say a simple sorry
To the ones that we've hurt
Will it kill us to say a simple sorry
To the ones that we've accused for no reason

Gratitude isone of the main
Form of politeness
We should've known it since we were young
Since we've known how to talk

Thank you and sorry is not to be bought
Like our ancestors used to say
Why is it so difficult to practise
These three simple words

Why let too much pride and vanity
Make us think we are so perfect
And prevent us from being thankful
To the ones that have done good for us
And sorry tothe ones we've misdeed for no reason

Why let ourbad habits and behaviour
Make us forget these three words
And make us...
...don't think of who we are

Why are we forgetting
How to be thankful
Why are we forgetting
How to say I'm sorry

Parents should thought it
To their children
Teach them good manners
And they'll florish in a better world

Come on grown ups and mature ones
Be the example...
...the role model to our youths
Share with them good knowledge  
And our new generation...
...will create a better evolution

Let gratitude be our prayers everyday
Our food...
...our medication...
...our pledge and our motto.

Goodbye, Adieu, Maa Al Salama

Goodbye, Adieu, Maa Al Salama,
I visited once and shall never visit again,
For I am born for only one day,
Carrying many events along with me,

I shall spread my wings and fly today at TWELVE P.M,
A tear shall drop from my eye as I have my last glance
To all the people that lived with me for TWENTY-FOUR HOURS
I will try to smile as I leave,
But I can not promise not to cry,

You shall not see me again, unless...
Time repeats itself and I come back,
The ones that took pictures or videos shall remember the moments
While those who wrote, felt, and cried shall feel the moments 
Yet those moments shall last forever,

I love you all, every single one,
I enjoyed the time I've spent with you,
I'm sorry for the harsh times I've done for some,
Please forgive me, but that's how I was destined to be...

Remember me in the lovely moments
Treasure me in your minds
For if you do, I shall become a story told to many,
And a fairy tale that never ends

Goodbye, Adieu, Maa Al Salama,
For I have FORTY-NINE MINUTES left to spend with you
So enjoy what's left,
Remember that I've always loved,
And remember me as...
April in 2008...

Maa Al Salama: Means goodbye in Arabic.
