My Poem of the Day

(09/13/14)

Alone And Lonely You Will Be!©

Simple thoughts

With no real intentions

Lead to actions

Not likely to be forgiven

You start with a promise

That’s never fulfilled

That ends with tears on a pillow

That are definitely not yours

You say many things that are just words that flow

They sound nice

But mean nothing

Because you never follow through

Even when everyone is depending on you

A room full of waiting eyes

Waiting to see if you’ll show up

Not wanting to believe you won’t show up again

Even though you promised not to mess up again

They just seem to always give you the benefit of the doubt

But what’s most important to you is that ego of yours

It’s always just only the things you want that keep you company at night

The ones who love you mean nothing any more

Just be careful

They might just be showing you the door

Your family and friends will only wait so long

Don’t let your ego win out

For you will be standing alone

Birthday Wishes©

74 years ago today

My mother was born

Of course I couldn’t have known her then

But I know her now

I know that had things been different

I might not be the person I now am today

So I thank you mother

On this special day

For bringing me here

To this place we both live

You have your pride

And

You stay true in all that you do

You are loved by many

Known by many

And remain

The envy of many

Your strength and determination

Has gotten you far

The love you hold onto

Has pulled you through trying times

You have much to show

For your years on this earth

I can certainly say

That I’m proud to be amongst your accomplishments

So as you celebrate today

Know that there are many of us

Out here thinking

Of all that we owe to having you in our lives

You’re not just a memory

You’re a piece of our minds as well as our hearts

We’ll never go on thinking

Without remembering

All that you’ve done

So keep on living this life of yours

So we can keep on building our memories

There’s nothing better than looking back

And seeing all that you’ve had

All that you were

And all that you still have yet to be

I happily light a birthday candle

That will shine brightly

Each day

Until next year on this same day

When once again

I get to say thank you

In my own way

But now I

Thank the lord for our family

Enjoy!

My Poem of the Day (#2)

The Glow©

My inner glow has brought me strength

It seems now to completes me

Believing I could find my way

I know now there’s no need to fight this battle alone

The walls I built

Must be torn down

Before the healing can begin

I think no longer of all my pain

My thoughts are strong

And full of hope

I feel relaxed

And even poised

Thanks to the love of friends and family

They’ve given me reason to push forward

Even after I turned them away

In the end

When all the work has been done

I’ll be standing in my afterglow

Thanks to all of them

Till Death Do Them Part

Through Thick and Thin

Heartaches and Headaches

While Putting Their Children Through

Elementary School, High School and College

They Will Enjoy and Sometimes Suffer Through

Your husband may always be your Mr. Right,

But you will forever be his Mrs. Right all the time.

Without you, he may lose direction, then need reflection

finding only regret for he did not listen when you were talking.

 Be gentle, forgiving, patient and understanding. Mr. Right will always be grateful.

Love will be forever binding”© Felina Silver Robinson


My Poem of the Day

(08/30/14)

On A Perfect Day

On a Perfect Day

We sleep til 9

No Alarm Clocks

No ringing phones

No cares

No worries

The kids make breakfast

And

Even clean their mess

No raised voices

No sibling rivalry

We pack a picnic lunch

We load up the car

We head for the dock

We board the boat

And

We set sail

Headed for nowhere

Just out into the wide blue yonder

Just the stir of giggles

Smiles across all their faces

Laying flatly on chairs lined about the boat

No one even cares what the other is talking about

Simple and carefree is what this day is all about

The sun is nearly setting

The wind is picking up

It’s time to set sail for the return trip home

The smell of the crisp clean ocean tugs at our noses

Makes us long for what we’ve just gotten

We hit dry land

Happy but sad to be back again

A beautiful sunset

A perfect ending

To

A perfect

Day

Jasmine Kissing Lea 03-31-02

Jasmine (2) kissing Lea (24 hours old) on the head
A Sister’s Love

Every day I watched moms belly grow bigger and bigger

She told me my sister lay inside

Just waiting until the day she could come and meet us

Until then

She would eat and grow

And

Toss and turn

And

I would wait and wait

Every day I kissed mommies belly

You inside there

Were already my friend

I couldn’t wait until you could talk to me

But First you had to come out

On one Spring day

It finally happened

Mom went to the hospital

Leaving us at home

With her best friend

The next thing we knew

There you were

So tiny

Everyone scared to hold you

I didn’t care

I just wanted to kiss you

You looked like one of my toy dolls

But I knew you were my sister

Mom said

I would sit there and talk to you

Forever and ever

I know it’s because I loved you

Because you’re my sister

For the rest of our days

Through thick and thin

Good times and bad

We’ll always be together

I’ll love you forever

My ThrowBack Thursday

Poem of the Day #2

(08/21/14)

Nana’s Living Room

PhotoScan (3) PhotoScan (4)

In Nana’s Living Room

everything so perfect

Shiny and New

Neatly kept and in its place

A piano

begging to be played

No dust

No scratches

Perfectly placed

Fancy chairs and end Tables

Lead crystal bowls

Crystal lamps

When I walked upon the

Baby blue plush carpet

I felt like a princess

Walking to her throne

Right here in my Nana’s Living Room
