GRAD YOU WAIT

Yesterday
You were
A baby.

Then
It was
Kindergarten.

Then
It was
Middle School.

Then
You were
Driving a car.

Now
You have
Finished your schooling.

Grad
You
Wait.

Where
Has all
The time gone?

STUBBY

Mom & StubbyI will miss
Snuggles
After you made your morning rounds.

I will miss
Back scratches
You doing your itchy dance.

I will miss
Eye corner looks
When you were being ornery.

I will miss
Watching
You and Brian wrestle.

I will miss
Playing
Fetch and tug of war with your toys.

I will miss
Meal time
Sharing everything but green beans.

I
Will miss
You.

GRANDMA, GEE

GrandmaGrandma, gee
You now know the truth of this life
And
Eternity.

By GOD’S design
We belonged to you
And
You belonged to us.

Without judgement
You took us in
Unto you
Without condition.

May your earthbound life
Be a message lesson
For us all

Grandma, gee
Thank you
For
Being.

A FRIEND TO REMEMBER

When we needed someone to talk to
You were always there
Even though you couldn’t speak
We knew you understood.

Happiness we shared with you
Even though you couldn’t smile
We knew how you felt.

Love we all gave you
Sometimes we all wondered why?
But then you were our friend.

When we were sad
You cried with us
The reasons didn’t matter.

We cry for you now
For you are gone
Although your time was short
You will always be remembered.
