Archives For My Poem of the Day


Isolation Is..©

When

No one looks your way

No one makes time to get to know you

When you’re the last person picked for a team

When people never have nice things to say

When you’re never invited anywhere

When you’rr always the wall flower

And you have no pictures for your wall

The box meant to be your home

Seems more like a cage

And you lost the key

 


Moments In Time©

I lay awake in bed each night

Thinking of all the little moments in my life

Each memory I cling onto

Knowing that they give me comfort

When I’m feeling week

Wanting to give up on all that ails me

Then a flash from my past

Brings me back

To the reality I need to hold on to

Baby steps

Birthdays

Weddings

Anniversary’s

Graduations

And

Pictures of moments with you

I now realize that there is nothing that can

Take me away from you

No doubts

No pain

No feelings of defeat

I choose to push on because of you

 


Here Comes Summer©

Longer days

Shorter nights

Schools out

And the kids ignite

Teachers can’t wait until their out of sight

So they can all go and catch their flights

Where they’re all going doesn’t matter

Just as long as the school years still gone tomorrow

Leaving them to wonder if they should ever return

For now they’ll enjoy

Days in the sun

Walks on the beach

Sunsets with loved ones

Homework free nights

And

Breakfast in Bed

Old Man Fall

Please take no offense

But I can honestly say

I don’t look forward to your presence

As you’ll take away my long summer days

 


Fathers©

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


Friends That Last©

by Felina Silver Robinson

Growing up when life was harder

My friends were my strength

Today

Those same friends

Still remain

We can talk about than and now

We don’t have to see each other

To know each other

Memories carry us through

We mourn those we’ve lost

We talk each other through

Our newest trials and tribulations

It’s amazing

That no matter how much time has passed

We can say anything

Ask anything

And

Do anything

Because we are friends that last

That don’t have to ask

We just do what’s needed

 


Happy To Put Away My Tears©

by Felina Silver Robinson

Finally

There sits a smile upon my face

I can now pack away my tears

Hopefully

For many years

It’s never to late

For a clean slate

To look life straight in the eye

And

Give it another try

No more living a lie

Because of some other guy

My heart now belongs to someone new

And I no longer carry memories of you

I’m happy to put away my tears
