Inspiration is the power
You feel inside you
Each of us has it
Shining in you
It picks us up
When we're feeling down
Its points us the way
When waves threaten to drown
When life tries to take
Our dreams away
Inspiration in you
Gives you strength...
To try another day.

A Twelve Week Visit

The birds are chirping
A breeze is blowing
The sun is setting
And I feel like dozing
Why did you come
To visit today?
I'll pull up a chair
So you can stay
Chat with me for a bit
Tell me how your day went
Did it go well?
Did you feel alright?
Did the sun shine outside
With all of it's might?
Were the coworkers cordial?
Did your kids obey?
Did your husband or wife
Kiss you today?
Did you pray to God
In thanks for today?
That you're alive and well
And able to play?
That's good to know
More about you...
I'm glad you stopped
To see how I do...
Oh, how do I do?
Is that what you say?
Well, I heard my baby's
heartbeat today.
Beating softly
in quick little beats
The sound of life
At only twelve weeks
Moving and turning
That's what she said
The baby was doing
In it's watery bed
Having fun inside of me
Showing me how I should be.

Kissing Frogs

Spring is in the air
I see you took my dare

You looked at this blog
You kissed the frog

Did a prince I become?
Or a princess too?

Did true love bloom?
Did I make you swoon?

Simple rhymes are all I do
I can not solve your problems for you
I can not remove the pain of your day
I can only breath kind words your way

A little reprieve from the bustling world
Where perfection has a choke hold
And threatens to squeeze the life from us
With impending doom of no success

But really now...what is the worst
If we all lost our jobs and our pride was hurt
If we have good health and the ones that we love
And an after life with the One from above

So...look around you this sunny day
Spring has sprung and chased away the gray.
Love is in bloom and royalty are we
Kissing frogs and swooning gently.
