My ThrowBack Thursday Poem of the Day


When You Didn’t Know Me Any Better©

When you were young and you didn’t know me any better

I used to cry myself to sleep at night

I wasn’t sure if I could get things right

I wasn’t sure that I could be all that you needed me to be

I was too afraid that I would fail you

And you would turn out right

I was afraid to be your only parent

The only person that would shape your life

The only one to teach you right from wrong

I was afraid you wouldn’t hear me

That you wouldn’t listen

That you wouldn’t care what I was trying to teach you

When you didn’t know me any better

I wished that things were different

That I had more to offer you

That I could offer you the world without any heartbreak

Without a need or a wish for anything

That all you had to do is ask and all you desired would lay there before you

But then I realized how lucky we both have been to have each other

I came to realize that as long as we are together

All would be right with the world

I’m so honored to be the one to raise you

I hope that you now know me better!

My ThrowBack Thursday Poem of the Day


Forever Friends©

Jenna David and John Carrigg with Tanisha 12-1989Julie and David Carrigg 12-1989 

At a time when my family was missing
You became my family
But foremost we became friends
In times of trouble
In times of need
You were right there by my side
I didn’t have to ask
You came on Que.
You always knew
Where to be
just what to do
Even more so, what to say
I didn’t much know what to do without you

Now years have passed
I still think of you often
Wondering if you think of me
I find myself wishing that we were still as we use to be
But time changes everyone
But it hasn’t changed the way I feel about you
My ear is always here if you need someone to listen
My door is always open
Our friendship
Still holds a special place close to my heart

I’ll always be a phone call away

It’s clear to me that we are “Forever Friends.”

What I see when I look at the sea© by Felina Silver Robinson

I sit upon the largest rock
Facing towards the morning sun
I look out into the wide open land of ours
I see a brand new day for each and every day
Filled with hopeful things you see
We only have time for good things ahead
The future ahead has taken all that’s bad
And thrown it out to the sea
Never to be seen or heard from again
What do you see when you look at the sea?

Birthdays© by Felina Silver Robinson

Birthday’s come
Birthday’s go
We all have a list
Of what to do this year
Has anyone out there done anything
I’m forever making plans that never come to fruition
This year I’m certain there’s going to be a change
I’m more than determined to make certain this time
That I set out to do all that I can to complete my tasks
A birthday is a time for new beginnings and for wiping the slate clean
I can’t wait to begin my charge to make all that I must do be done before next we convene again

The old tree of mine© by Felina Silver Robinson

On a warm summers day when I was still young,
I planted tree to keep me company
The dirt I dug up from the park behind our house
The tree so small and mighty
I hope for its growth to be strong and plenty
The leaves so grand and supple
The flowers that sprout each spring
Smell sweeter than lilacs
I sit for hours just staring out at that tree
It makes me think of all the places that I want to be
When the petals fall beneath my feet
I have the urge to dance and share all my dreams
The petals seem to be like dear old friends
When winter comes to whisk them away
I sit peacefully waiting until spring next returns
To bring the leaves back to my tree
So that I can see all that I can see even if it is all only a dream

Note to my new readers: About my “Poem Bursts” – I give myself 30 seconds to one minute, and then write what comes to mind. This is a fun writing exercise I give myself to come up with something different from what I might usually write. I hope you enjoy the outcome.

Trust© by Felina Silver Robinson

It’s quiet
I now have time to think
To clear my mind of all the cobwebs
All the talk, the nonsense, and the rumors
Trust is where it should be
There’s no lying or cheating here
No need for cross examination
Nor giving the 3rd degree
My ears are open
And I sit here willing to believe you
Trust is what is needed to go from start to finish

Nature© by Felina Silver Robinson

Nature is free
It’s beautiful when it wants to be
And it belongs to all of us
Nature is lives and nature dies
But should come as no surprise
That sometimes nature kills
Not because it wants it’s just its design
Its power and its strength wraps itself around you
Sometimes it whisks you up and then tosses you away
Sometimes it watches you then strikes you down and then leaves you
Sometimes it rises up and swallows you whole and spits you out when its done
Hopefully you’ll survive natures wrath to prove to her that you can treat her right

I’ve got you© by Felina Silver Robinson

When all is wrong and all is right
I’m glad to know that I’ve got you
When my heart is aching when mom is gone
When she’s not coming back because
God has come and taken her
When dad couldn’t live without out her
And left in haste to join her
I know you’ll be there to hold me
When all the children are gone
To start their lives making their own families
I know you’ll find a way to keep me happy
I thank the lord that I found you
