LOVE God is always love Forever seek the kingdom; Praise the creator Keep giving what you can give Please endure until the end ANGELS Beautiful Heavens Protecting the meek ones earth Watching over us Helping us to cope with life Comforted with hope and trust MUSIC When you find rhythm You find your hearts inner core Celebrate the times Make them better than before Reminisce and dance all night

A safe perch


seeing above all

daddy's shoulders sitting tall

a safe perch so high

reaching up to touch the sky

loving bond just he and i...

GHOSTLY DAD

GHOSTLY DAD

new year’s eve
a ghostly frost coats his chair
front porch so still
car horns downtown
turn back the clock

new year’s eve
no moon    no starry night
no dad to share
in a sudden breeze
a leaf floats down from somewhere

early new year’s eve
the last trolley car dings by
that long yellow row
if he’s aboard
he doesn’t get off

new year’s eve
late cold coming in
clear as a bell
he points
the big dipper

on new year’s eve
dad and brother made ice cream
mom put on her new coat
i got one too
the vanilla stain still there

Father Tanka



                                                            He is my father
                                                        a very good provider
                                                         always gives advice
                                                   when life is in so much fright
                                                    I love him for his greatness

Happy Birthday to me
I'll make a great memory
make Mom and Dad proud
with a bright flash they will see
just how much they mean to me.....

A saddened christmas

Wake in the morning
running down the stairs to see
Heart sinks to the ground
father is not here today
my family is not complete

Queen's Birthday

 birth, birthday, celebration, dad,

LONG LIVE THE QUEEN © TANKA 

Queen’s birthday April 21
Birthday of my Dad the same
And his fourth daughter’s
As is the same as my son’s
Dad cried, “A King for A Day”!
