Fathers

The job is the same

No matter what the name

The job is the same

No matter your age

Your child wants to know you

Whatever your game

You can’t deceive them

They’ve got their eye on you

Sometimes playful

Mostly stable

Always thinking

Always worrying

Wanting to make sure

That everyone is happy

Everyone is safe

Everyone knows that he’s doing his best

There is never a moment

That he’ll stop believing

That you’re the best

His love is so powerful

That he’s willing to give his life for yours

Fathers always knowing what’s best

They earn their wisdom

With each passing year

He’s proud of his title

His family is the key

The key to his happiness

And all that can be

He’ll climb any mountain

Move any tree

If that’s what you need

to see what he means

Raise your glass to one that knows best

Happy Father’s Day

 

Thank you for being my dad (W.R.M.)

Thank you Joe for being an amazing father to my/our

Children

I love you both dearly


Memory Center©

by Felina Silver Robinson

In a special part of my brain

I hold a spot of which I’ve named

Memory center

This is the place I keep

Memories of you

When I’m down and blue

And

Nothing else will do

I turn to the special part of my brain

Called

The Memory Center

There I keep all my thoughts and memories

Of me and you

From our first meeting to

The day you married my mother

Each day of every year that followed

Whenever and wherever I needed you

I just had to visit the memory center

For a cup full of memories

You’ve gotten me through thick and thin

Cheered me on when no one else could

The power of your smile

And

The sound of your laughter

Still gives me all the energy I need to push forward

I hope in someway

I’ve been able to give something back to you

 

Thank you for being my dad

(W.R.M.)

I love you


May love find all those who yearn for it, blossom in those who are lucky enough just to have found it, and continue to grow in those who have been able to hold onto it. Allow your heart to receive love so that you too can give love. Celebrate the spirit of love.
Happy Valentine’s Day to Everyone!

A consensual kiss between two folks that results in a free burrito seems like a good deal.

My Poem of the Day

(01/05/15)

Will They Respect Me?©

I have a hunger for respect of those

Both beside me and behind me

As they try to climb above me

I’ve worked so hard for so long

To come out from this hold

I’ve given everything I have to give

All my time

All my faith

And even all my loyalty

Nothings proven to be more important as the

Day grows short and the nights stay long

While my family and friends

Bide for some of my love and affection

I beg for their forgiveness and tell them that

Time has not been on my side

I remind them that they’ve always said that

Patience is a virtue

Thou I know that

This is not what they want to hear

Because they can’t seem to

Nor do they want to

Practice as they preach

I tell them though of how things will come to be

Once my work is done

And that they along with the others

Will have nothing but

Respect for me

As I find my rightful place at the head

Of this big great game

Called Life

So while we wait

I hope that they will ALL have the strength to

Respect me

For time is all I need as

Long as they’re beside me

A Peaceful Moment©

A peaceful moment between two men

A time where what they cannot be repeated

In this place known as the men’s den

No chores are waiting

No clock is ticking

Every moment is precious

Better than that

Every moment is peaceful

So please take notice

Do not enter uninvited

For you will be disrupting

The peaceful moment of said men

Blissfully Happy©

There is no Rose with its petals soft and bright

Nor a jewel with its glistening glow

That could make me as blissfully happy

As the company that I keep

They make me smile cheek to cheek

I can sincerely laugh at their jokes

We can talk about anything or everything for hours

There’s no prompting

No silence

No boredom

The sun is often absent

But we would never notice

The rain may soak our clothes

The wind may pound against our face

But this changes absolutely nothing

For our happiness is found between the feelings that we share

They are simple

And they are pure

But most of all they are honest

This is why

I cry when they leave

But I must say that I remain blissfully happy

Till such time we meet again
