Time Machine

Ride with me on my time machine to a different time and place
Return with me and let me see if I can put a smile upon your face
To the days of AM radio and the TV was black and white
To lying in a grassy field and counting stars at night
Popcorn and soda in the balcony at a Saturday matinee
Parades led by the High School Band on Decoration Day
Dressing up and going door to door on the night of Halloween
Cigarettes rolled in your shirt, pretending to be James Dean
Pep rallies before the football games, everybody stand and cheer
Going in the woods with your friends at night, sharing a quart of beer
That feeling inside, turning red, when she smiled at you at the dance
Wanting to kiss her goodnight, but you were afraid to take a chance
Playing chase tag at night in the neighborhood, hiding behind a tree
Holding hands with your first steady, so all your friends could see
Medicine Show at the end of town in a giant canvas tent
Saving pennies for a rainy day, fasting on candy for Lent
Going for a Sunday ride with Mom and Dad in the family car
Playing in the yard at night, putting lightning bugs in a jar
Drag racing on that long stretch of road, Chevy was hard to beat
Stealing peaches from a neighbor’s tree, always seemed so sweet
Riding bikes all over town, never knowing the meaning of fear
Identifying cars by their tail lights, make and model and year
News and Stooges at the theatre before the movie starts
Valentine’s day I love you written on tiny candy hearts
Easter bonnets and picking flowers for Mom on Mother’s Day
Opening day at the community pool the last weekend in May
Sock hop in the auditorium, collar up, trying to play it cool
Meeting friends at the usual place, everyday after school
Six for a quarter on the juke box, music that would move your soul
Return with me now to those glory days and the birth of rock and roll.

We Lost More Than a Dad

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost half of how we came to be
We lost we four girls first love
We lost our Best Friend

We lost more than just a Dad that day
Our Mom lost her Soul Mate, Her other half 
Our children lost their Papaw
We lost our family’s foundation 
We lost the glue that held us together

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost the Strongest man we ever knew 
We lost the man we looked up too
We lost we four girls Teacher of many things

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We four girls lost our Hero
We lost some of our Light
We lost part of our Heart
We lost part of our Soul

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost some of our Courage
We lost some of our Strength
We lost some of our will to fight back
We lost some of our will to carry on
We four girls lost more than a Dad
We lost more than just a Dad that day

Moon bridge

The moon so bold seems cold
with a halo of midnight glow
I sit mesmerized as the night grows old.

I bleed still, even after all these years
and I wait again through the night
aching in the depths of my soul
that no other seems to know
the Loneliness that has become my companion.

In the darkness we wait and confide in the other
our deepest fears as memories fade
in and out each season of change
            the nostalgia tempers the wars of pain
this tempestuous foe of ours
         wails at the gates of midnight
howling the warble of humanities last grace.

How the comfort of minds and hearts
turn from light to deep dark in the face 
of eternities long time clock...

I ache with wanting, with need and passion
          it is a lie that time heals and wounds scar
each night is fresh like the first
                              when I faced realities shock.

Who can wait with me?
Who can hold this hound at bay?
Who can cherish what little love left in me
             and make the broken whole?


I ache to be loved again as the love that burns
and waits inside of me. 
Who can comfort this emptiness and fill the void
                that so many leavings have left?

Cherish and love to honor and protect
             but who can slay these demons that hold my heart in wrath?
Who will walk the sulfur clouds of hell to save my mind
     and deliver my world to the gates of heaven
      with life, not death bridging the distance of pain?

I sit and wait at the floor of the moon each night
waiting for that bridge to carry me yonder,
      this moon who hangs heavy and ripe with the yearning of my soul
with clouds aglow as if I could sweep them across a canvas
   with the brush held in your hand

I rage at her as I wait, but still I wait and weep
as Loneliness and I keep each others company
wishing the clouds of that great moon could truly create
a way to find the lost, a pathway to home, lit by the legacy our love.

MOM I LOVE YOU

My eyes follow as my left hand orchestrates my thoughts with an ink pen
Of memories, past and present, good and bad that you have embedded within
My heart palpitates when you are near as you billow with love again and again

I promise to be with you in the stormy weather as the dark skies descend

Live life every sec, min, and hour with you without fearing when our time will end
Oh what a blessing you have been to me amongst endless pain, agony and sin
Verily I say, thanks for the seed that has formed my vital structures to speak herein
Everyday is a new beginning, yet you continue to march along the strongest wind

Yield not from my heart, for you are the cause and effect of beast becoming men
Others have gone before you, lead the way for your hands were made to lend
Unending love and protection you have as long as I'm your Officer and Gentle-Men


Pace, G.

Mothers Day: I love you Dad

I love you dad,
Not because of the sweet deep voice
Not because of the angelic heart 
Not because of the shelter and food
Not because of bills you clear
Not because of because
I love you dad, 
so much,
Because you love mom

Mom

-mom- 
Im sorry for all the fights
It doesnt matter whos right
I dont want to think I’m losing you
But what if I do
Will you still say I dont care
The truth is I do 
All the times I didn’t say I love you too
But I do…..
No matter where you are 
Near or far
Youre still my mom and I love you For who you are

I love you mom

Long day at work and it already hurts
To know when I go home it will get nothing but worse

Im tired of going home to an empty fridge 
If she knew she was going to be on drugs why have any kids?

Hurting me to see her who gave me birth
Drugged up on who knows what I sit and sob in a shirt

Constant accusations of things I never do 
I'm going to stop right here wont even mention abuse 

When I step into that house its like a cloud of sadness
Been going on for years no way to stop this madness 

So many tears in my eyes its tearing me apart 
Nothing can add up to the embarassment and shame in my heart 

Expecially when all my friends have the "perfect mom"
Comming home to depression some nights I lay and sob 

What hurts the most Is I dont want to leave
I want to "stay and help mommy" its sad indeed

I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night
Praying to god as I cry to make everything right

"Please lord help my mom work things through"
"Her addiction is getting worse I dont know what to do"

"For her no one is there I dont even think they're aware"
"Infact I am the only one who still even cares"

"Lord I sit and stare as her conditions get worse"
"I need some guidance tell me where to start first"

I lay back in my bed and cry myself to sleep 
Thinking will she ever stop before it gets too deep?

Sunrises in the morning back up for work!
"Positive attitude" policy so I put on a smirk

Headed out the door for another long hard day 
Forcing on a smile thinking "its going to be okay"..

Message to Mom on Graduation Day

Mom...

   words cannot express how I feel right now....
   I just want to thank you for all you have done for me....
   I do not know where I would be today....
   if you where not there as my crutch when I needed you most....
   you are the most understanding & caring person in the world....
   to have and to love as a mother....
   I thank my prayers from the good Lord up above....
   for the prayers that were answered for the man I have become today....
   I wish all parents were as supportive as you have been to me....
   to talk when we need too stay quiet when we need too....
   thank you for the life you have given me....
   and the direction that you have led me in....
   I will cherish all the memories, advice, & love you have given me....
   forever and always....
   
   Thank you
   
   I love you Mom.
   I love you.

A Mother's Love


A Mother’s Love… How precious is the love of a mother’s heart! Even as a child… It’s there from the start. A mother’s love knows no boundary or limit. It’s often shown by how much the mother gives it! Whether her children are young or growing old… And whatever circumstances in life may unfold… Her love is continually a solid foundation… That can’t be removed, torn or shaken. Her love is what is a “guiding force…” Even if her children’s lives stray “off course.” I’m thankful for the love my mother’s given… It’s surely influenced the way I’ve been livin’! To all of our mothers across our great nation… May we show them our love and appreciation! Their love has stood and endured the test of time… I’m so glad that one of them is MINE! By Jim Pemberton

We Are There With You

You do not stand alone in your Battle
Your battle is our Battle
We may not be there in body
But we are there with you in Spirit

We are there in every beat of your Heart
In every whisper of the wind
In every thought and every touch
Every breath and every sound
We are there with you

You are wrapped in an Endless chain of Love
In every link we each send you a part of us
We send you some of our Strength
Some of our will to Fight
Some of our Courage
The most important of them all
We send you all of our Love

If you feel you need more
Just give that Endless chain a little tug
And we'll be there
Tug til you need us no more
Then we'll know you've gone Home

The Family That God Gave to Me

The Family That God Gave to Me I think about the family, that God gave to me... And think about where they'll spend eternity! I think about the good times, that we've had. And the trials we've faced... Both good and bad! God helped us to overcome adversity together! And proved his faithfulness... Today and forever! He showed us the Godly path, that we should follow... And promised to be with us! Today and tomorrow! He's proven how much he loves us! And how much that he cares for us! Thank you my lord, for all you do! Where would we be? If not for you? You've proven yourself over and over again! Thank you so much, for being our friend! By Jim Pemberton

The Old Salt

The Old Salt was a special man who came along in a time
when he was needed most.

A time that is now gone forever.
When men believed and sacrificed, when hero’s walked the earth in mass.

When patriotism was not just a word
but,
by what men lived and judged the worth of each, 
a man who lived a life most of us cannot comprehend. 

An era now gone as this warriors tour of duty ends at this station, 
and begins anew in the heavenly fleet. 

Sail on Sailor into your unaccompanied tour,
we salute you.

What greater honor, that when a man moves forward, 
he leaves behind in each of us the best of what he was. 

A defender, protector, supporter, victor, a warrior, 
the last of the breed from an era when ships were made of wood
and men were made of steel.

The Old Salt has reported for duty that takes him away from us for now. 

Those of us who remain behind,
remember, and will continue to remember, 
because he now resides forever in our hearts.

As I look up at night, I envision The Old Salt,
a beret draped just above the eye, 
as he draws upon his pipe, 
quietly he waits.
The guardian of heaven’s gate.

My Parents

I love to hear my father's laugh
When he thinks something's funny
I really love to make him laugh
Because he's such a comedian

I love how hard my mother works 
When she has a goal,  she achieves it
I love how judgemental she is at the t.v. 
It just makes me laugh

I love that I'm the perfect mixture of them
My lower face is Mom 
My eyes and forehead are all Dad 
Only they left me out on being tall

I love that family is sacred to them 
That they'll always help us if they can
I love how supportive they are 
I wish they could know how grateful I am

A Mother's Love

Her words, her comfort,
It's not like any other.
Her touch is gentle, her words are kind,
It can only be my mother.

These days,
great moms are hard to find.
But I know I'm lucky,
because one of those great moms is mine.

It doesn't matter where I'm at,
she is always there.
I am blessed to say I have a loving mom
who genuinely cares.

Laughing or crying,
she is always by my side.
She has celebrated my accomplishments,
she has held me when I've cried.

Her love is like magic,
phenomenal and rare.
I know she loves me,
and I really, truly, care.

When I was born 13 years ago,
I was constantly sick
but I knew you would be there,
fast and quick. 

Her smile is delicate and sweet
and her huge, loving heart
can't be beat.

I had my first surgery
when I was 9 months old.
You both were so worried,
but then you were relieved when you were told.

I was alive, I was healthy!
You were both happy as could be.
Praising God for letting you have number three.

Ever since the day of my birth,
You have been there.
And I have no price for how much that's worth.

A mothers love is unexplainable,
mothers are strong, mothers are sustainable.

Parenting is a team effort
between you and your spouse.
You two have done a great job
running our house.

A mothers love is cherished by me,
it is placed close to my heart.
I know if she loves me forever, 
I will never fall apart.

Mom I Love You More

Mom I love you more
than I think that you love me
Just read this little note
and at the end I'm sure you'll see

I love you so I let you
wash and comb my hair 
and buy me all my toys 
just to show you how I care

And cook for me and feed me
the things that make me strong
and when I'm tiered, but can't sleep
I let you sing a song

I only let you buy me clothes
'Cause I know it pleases you
and let you do those other things
all mother's like to do

I never tell you "NO"
that should meant a lot right there
and you living in my house
that I've agreed to share

And it's me who lets you work
until the day is done
just so I can go out
with my friends and have some fun

I only wrote this note
so you could plainly see
I've got to love you more
Than I think that you love me

Midnight Lullaby

I wrapped all my tears, to see you smile.
you are the best, always by my side.
I tell you my feelings will get you crying,
you must think I’m out of my mind.

You don’t know, what I know,
all the angels let me go.

We were born to teethe and die,
you will grow to be so fine.
Fall in love, feel your softer side,
Remember me when life is kind.

When you go, let me know,
don’t walk away like the world and go.

Life is rough and the world unkind,
fight them down and you will be fine.
The truth of live is a brutal sight,
make no mistakes, you can learn from mine.

You have a strong heart, you are unique
I treasure times when you smile at me.

Live the life, I could not find,
be there for me, when I say goodbye.

My Mom My Angel

I look up high and see a bright star,
That must be my angel  
Yes shes a star,
Mom I bet , its so beautiful living 
In a castle up in the sky,
My mommy is an angel ,
I wish I could see her fly,
when sum days are hard ,

And reality sets in ,
I breakdown and cry ,
then I see a sparkle and really 
caught 
my eye
Thats when it all made sense ,
I got comfort , from the bright star 
way up high
Thats my mommy , shes an angel , 
sitting on the sky
The brightest star,
I love u mom , and think of u no 
matter how far
U are ....
I can c u watching down on me , 
Where ever u are...

In loving memory of my mom

Noble Grace

You are the birthplace of motherhood
an eternal wellspring of living waters
the quiet strength and will of a family
a welcome gift of tenderness and love,

You are the keeper of familial dreams
a true graceful light that will ne’er fade
the storyteller, the counselor, the hope
a motherly guide to all mothers unborn,

You are a heaven-sent guardian angel
a sacred temple of cherished memories
the heartening lyrics of a favorite song
a fountain of life’s wisdom personified,

You are a kind smile’s lasting wonder
a thoughtful spirit of undying affection
the blessed serenity of a maternal kiss
a woman of untold wisdom in her eyes,

You are the joy of a comforting lullaby
a matriarch of exquisite grace and style
the wife, mother, and daughter of time
a genuine breath of unconditional love,

You are the delight of a warm embrace
a serenade of heaven bound devotions
the feeling of stillness within a dream
a storyteller of inspired reminiscences,

You are the celebration of womanhood
a moment of everlasting effervescence
the aura of admiration and commitment
a majestic queen of perfect selflessness,

You are the joyfulness forever lingering
deep within the true essence of my soul
the loving legacy of a devoted matriarch
a woman of truth, intuitive and strong,

You are the light of childhood dreams
a precious jewel of maternal kindness
the epitome of humbleness and grace
a beloved mother who is forever loved.

BUBBY

I’ve seen all my life
So many people come and go
Passing so quickly
Leaving a faded memory
Of the moment we crossed paths.

So sadly I must say is true
Rarely do I see anyone
Staying around long enough
Getting to know me.
Hardly does a person stay.

You, Bubby, My only son,
The most important man to me,
I’ve come into my life only
To stay and never ever leave
Me all by myself.

So grateful to know you,
And proud as a mom can be
You’re the greatest 
Young man this world has seen.
My only son, my BUBBY.

To see you smile, hear your voice,
Always fills my 
Heart and soul with love.
My only son, my hero, 
Sent from up above.

Mother

You’ve been in my life from the start
Even though at times we’ve had to part
And it may not always be shown or heard
But when I mention love, it’s not just a word
It’s a million memories, probably more
A soft touch, a slammed door
It’s a quickly regretted fight
And thinking up an apology all that night
It’s the first hint of a proud smile
That makes the struggle worth the while
It’s a river, an ocean of shed tears
As you’ve helped me conquer my fears
It’s being grown and still holding your hand
Because you’re the one who gives me strength to stand
It’s knowing how to carry on once I’m grown
Because of all the love you’ve shown
And still needing you in my life
To help me make sense of all the strife

My First Grief

In my cradle,
My tiny body was cradled
In my mothers arms.
My gem among gems,
I remember when I cried
You comforted me with 
your soothing words.
Your re-assuring hands
Secured me till Death's 
Cold hands snatched you 
From me,a sucker I was
That needed you most.
Adieu! Sweet mum till 
We cross paths again!

The Woman I Never Knew

She looked like an angel
Sitting there in her bed
Everybody loved her
She had a great sense of humor
They say I am like her
I am very honored.
She was my dear mother.

She was a very sick lady.
She had tuberculosis and stomach cancer
She left me and this old world at the age of forty-five
I was age five
Mom I love you and I miss you.

dear mom

ear Mom,
     I know I seem like an angsty teen that's a brat, but just hear me out. You don't know me. You don't know me as well as you think you do. you can't read me like a book. You don't know what that glint in my eyes is. You don't know that I most likely have or had depression. You do know that I have anxiety, but maybe you forgot the word social. You don't that I'm constantly worrying about being judged. I've tried revealing these things to you, but it's a little hard so I try dropping hints. From the music I listen to the to the poems I've read to you. But I never told you about one thing. Trust issues. I have trust issues. And you know what. You caused them. It's hard for me to trust people and let people in and have people be my friend, because the one person I thought I could always trust, shattered it into a million pieces. Home life was bad for a while, but when 'it' happened, I became secluded. I isolated myself. Well it wasn't hard to be alone seeing as I had no friends at the time. I was a recluse for months. I bottled up all those emotions. I half let it out but I never fully let go. So I got a bigger bottle. One and a half years later, that bottle needs to be enlarged, but oops, there's not s larger size. It hit me all at once. The depression, the anxiety, the fear of judgement, the trust issues. And guess what, you'd probably blame all those things on vitamins. You don't like vaccines so I have to miss three weeks of school before I can get the medical exemption because of a badly timed appointment. The backlash? Bad grades when I get back. I'm trying. I was just about to turn in all that work. I had an A just a day ago and then she messed it up. I'm trying, and I'm trying hard. And I'm stressed. And you're just adding to that. You yell at me, it's all you talk about to me. Right when I get back from dance practice you lecture me on vitamins or talk about school. So I cry in the bathroom. And I cry and cry and cry. Mom you've caused me so much pain and suffering. We're not a normal family. We have a past. I've suffered from so many things you've caused. My sanity is dwindling down to the last thread. And you know what, I'll never show this to you. I don't have the guts. It'd break your heart and maybe you'd get mad.  But despite everything, I still love you, I just don't know how much longer I can. 

                                          Sincerely,
                                              Taylor Hostetler, your daughter

Dear Mom

Dear Mom:  

It was hard to understand,
The love you had for me. 
So I took the hand, 
Of a boy. 
Trusting in him, 
Only to be decoyed.

So I took the hand, 
Of a man. 
Who taught me to trust,
Again.
Freeing me to adjust,
Without directive demand.
Although his love,
 So tender.
My heart would not,
Fully surrender.

So I took the hand, 
Of our savior.
He showed me the light,
A reason to fight.
He opened my eyes,
Not to believe the devils lies

So I stood up tall
Never again will I fall 
Your love had always been,
With appreciation, 
That was not dim. 
Only hidden.

So  I'll take your hand,
One day.
In heavens sand 
I will say 
I love you mother
Always and forever


Happy Mothers day!
To my loving mother who suffered with Lupus and alcoholism. 
I never truly understood the love you had for me before I found Christ and had my baby girl! 
No matter how it may appear some times there is no greater love than a mothers love for her children (besides our savior.) 
Rest in peace mommy dearest!

If by chance you went away

Please just trust in what i say

Your in my heart each and everyday

My love for you will always stay and it will never sway

Even if time stood still my love for you never will

You are my hero I must admit and that I will not forget

You held my hand when I was in pain and it was not in vein

I could not ask for more

Your the reason I was born...

Mom: Can't Take it Anymore

I love you too much to let you go,
Time to time comes you put that,
Pressure on me that effects my life,
And that leaves me no where in my journey.

You want to control me in every way you want,
Giving me adivises for as much as you want,
Which I wouldn't mind to listen.

Throwing things in my face whenever you want,
It's worthless to even compromise anything with you,
Because you'll always change your words,
Around and take your promises back,
You promised you will stay on your promises,
That fades away in a second from now and then.

You put me down in so many ways in many times,
And I keep on taking the pain,
You discourage me in any way and every way,
What can I say, you are relentless in every way.

You know I love you so much mom,
More than anything in my life,
I know you care about me in evey way,
I don't want a perfect mom,
All I want is for you to understand me,
As I 'm growing up the goals I have,
And the dreams that I want to accomplish in my life.

Sorry mom, I just can't take it anymore,
And stand the things that you say,
Leave me alone for a while,
So I can think things throw my head.

I Love You Mom, Please Don't Hurt Me

On that day I first opened my eyes,
The fourth of June, the month you despise.
I saw the tears, your blubbering lies,
your hate-filled speech as you curse the skies.
I was your baby, innocent and pure,
You saw a demon and a need for cure.
So you yell and I plead,
You burn and I bleed.
Am I to blame for your lustless lives?
My birth not flowers, but a bed of knives?
You're in pain, I can see,
But please mom. Don't hurt me.
