A MOMENT IN TIMEIf I had a moment in time
To capture on the wallOf special people in my life,Is there room to fit them all?
I can’t do it in just one poemBut here are a few I’ll share.There’s a lot I will leave out
‘Cause there’s memories to spare.
Mom’s special filled cookies,Thanks Ann for memory’s delight.
Guys overfeeding Dad at club,He still ate supper that night!
Rocking horse bucked me off,Uncle John choked with mirthDad didn’t think it so funny-
I uttered words I’d heard from birth!
Aunt Ina’s last words to me,There never was a doubt.
She’s with Jesus nowAlways cheerful, not a pout.
Many memories from club,Joe’s laughter and Jim’s grin.Jokes and long told stories
Better stop now for there’s no end.
Brandings could fill a bookAs the scenes go through my mind
Some had just best stay there,For me alone to find.
Memories drift through my mind,This poem can’t contain them all.
Hope I’ll see the folks that spark themAt final roundup when Jesus calls.
hadn’t seen her all sum-mer so figured that a bob-cat or coyote had gottenher, but when the bunchgathered late this fall,there she was gimpingalong keeping up with theothers. Another one usu-ally makes sure that I amawake and that I knowthat she is keeping theworld under control.How do I know that she is“turking” to me? It’spretty evident when she
is looking right at the win-dow where I am watchingher and making eye con-tact when she “speaksout”. The little thingsmake my day!
“Positive people alsohave negative thoughts.They just don’t let thosethoughts grow and de-stroy them.”
“I am grateful. If itweren’t for where I’vebeen, I wouldn’t be whereI am.”
