Sitting On The Porch
Sitting on this porch, I look to the tree;
Standing there alone now, the only thing I see.
The cold of season changing, causing it to sway;
If it had a voice I wonder what it would say.
Just a year ago it wasn't all alone;
The tornado blew on past and left the others prone.
So now this giant oak tree, standing at the end;
Finds the squirrels and birds are gone, no one to befriend.
Branches missing here and there, looks as if its sad;
Reminds me of my life right now, how things are going bad.
The leaves are changing color now, all turning brown; ...
Alone I Stand It Seems
I cried the day we wed, standing before all to see;
My wife you became, the woman of my dreams.
On the birth of our son, holding him in my arms;
I cried there silently, scared for no harm to come.
During our second pregnancy, distance separated us-I sighed;
His calling lifted our child to the heavens, no time to say good-bye.
Our third a fighter she was, the tiniest for all to see;
As I looked down into her eyes, it's you that smiled back at me.
