Tears From A Tree

                                                I
                                              am
                                              but
                                            a tree
                                           standing
                                          quite   tall.
                                         With out any 
                                       leaves,  to shed
                                     in the fall. Standing
                                  firm, until winter comes.
                                Then I  hear  someone  say
                             "Yes, I  think  that's  the  one!"
                           Out comes the saw, and they begin
                       to cut me down. For the sake of a season,
                   I'm removed from the ground. Placed in a home
              and all frilled up. Filling my branches with shinny things,
       also a star on top. A couple of weeks later I begin to feel the pain.
   No longer getting nourishment from my roots, and my life begins to fade.
                                           I am a  simple 
                                           tree,    that  is
                                           used a couple     
                                           weeks  of   the 
                                           year.The sticky
                                           sap  you see, is 
                                           my  abundance
                                           of tears. When
                                           I hear the saw
                                           I  am  filled with 
                                           great       fear.
                                           Hoping you will
                                           plant    another
                                           tree like me, as     
                                           you take my life.
                                           For    it  is  truly 
                                           the   only  thing,
                                           that      I     feel
                                           is              right.



Danny Boy: 10-18-13 :*(

Unknown

Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?

Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.

And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.

I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep. 

Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.

And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

Christmas 2009

Recession made Christmas harder than ever before
Family’s splitting – money the core
Dad’s leaving to live on the street
So that young hungry mouths are able to eat
That some extra cash might be in the house
and children might learn what Christmas is about?
But without Dad gone, roof would be lost
for the bills are much higher – we can’t meet the cost
No longer can the average family budget
2009, jobs lost, even working struggle to afford it
Commercialism needs to stop building hopes and dreams
Childern don’t understand you are busting at the seams
Disappointment reigns as kids outside taunt and tease
No longer we fit in we’re all on our knees
Sinking. Even love has fallen apart
We don’t want this Christmas just haven’t the heart!
Expectation lower, depressions set in
Politicians not helping the hole we’re all in
Instead raising taxes they’ll crucify more
and this miserable life could be at your door
Will someone tell them that family should be together
sharing love, life, hopes dreams whatever they weather

CHRISTMAS

WHAT IS CHRISTMAS,
YOU DON'T KNOW,
IT COME EVERY YEAR,
JUST LIKE THE SNOW,
THE LIGHTS, TREE, 
AND SPECIAL TREATS,
YOU HAVE SO MANY CHOICES TO EAT,
MOST OF ALL THE PRESNTS AND GIFTS,
CARDS AND MONEY,
MANY CLOTHES TO FIT,
THE SPECIAL GIFT,
THE GIFT OF GOD,
HE IS THE REASON, 
WE CELEBRATE THIS ALL.

Prayer For Family Blessings at Christmas

Heavenly Father,
In this season many are in need
Send Your angels to comfort and lead
Robotics is taking over and jobs are lost
Employment downsizing is a mighty cost
Companies are moving south of the border
Families are frustrated with sleep disorder

Gracious Father,
Help those struggling for an anchor
Save their homes from the mean bankers
Preserve their cars for the family and work
Bless their finances and allow them some perks
Many are trying and the obstacles won’t go away
Open new doors for them as a sign to a new day

Merciful Father,
Look upon the management at their work sites
Teach bosses how to lead and manage in Your light
Transform the hearts of those who are discontented
Preserve those who are about to be railroaded
There is enough prosperity in Your world for all
There is no earthly reason why a family should fall

Almighty Father,
Touch the heart of those in power
Show that by each and every hour
That Your love and grace will preserve
Even the little people who deserve
The blessings of life in their hearts
Your love and mercy will never depart

Dear Father,
In Your name we pray
Bless each heart today
In the precious name of Your Son
I know that the battle is won
This is Your season of grace
Keep them in Your embrace

Amen!

The Christmas Story

Here's a Christmas story that will end in tears.
Maybe you have one that has been tucked away for years.
I hang on this tree,in the back where no one can see.
All alone I am,with shiny balls laughing at me.
I hang here,my shine all gone,
No ring left in me,in a place where I don't belong.
I remember the fireplace,above it I shined.
A loud ring I had,a glow from me would blind.
I was precious back then,I was like gold.
The years have tarnished me and now I am old.
A little boy,He's coming under the tree.
He looks up,yes,yes,he sees me.
He took me down,as he polished,he sang in rhyme.
Now once again,above the fireplace I shine.

There's Something About Ma Ma's Christmas Tree

There's something about Ma Ma's Christmas tree
ornaments tinsel blinking lights and popcorn strewn
about  by her grandchildren's  little hands to plainly see
the angel nestled on top blessing for all who comes passes she
fresh scent of pine lingering about ticking our noses like a soft country breeze
presents big and small stacked upon each other for her big family
bows falling from the gifts tightly wrapped  only by she
needles upon the skirt sticking to our hands and our little knees
Christmas bulbs reflecting  off our silly little faces ever so jolly
Mama taking snap shots of us all standing in front of her six foot tree
but nothing was more beautiful that could be given to she
Except for my heart who I miss giving to Ma Ma who always stood by me






RIP MAMA  {1934 - 2005}
Love Ya And Miss Ya
