Thank you


For the days you carried me
In your bosom
Thank you
For drying my tears at night
When I could no longer fight

Thank you
For the years of belief
When others doubted

There were times of unbelief
When family closed their doors
Pulled up their noses
And looked the other way

Thank you
For humbling yourself
Enough
To go an ask for food
When others looked on and laughed

You and Dad are my heroes
Thank you
For the years of understanding
The faith you had in me to succeed

I know you are proud
I see it in your eyes
I see it in your smile
I see it in your laughter

I know I can never repay you
For all the things that you done for me…
A simple “Thank You” seems insensitive
So I will make you proud
By being an example
And helping Zaundrei and Shimonne
Rest assured
They will be fine

With God by our side
Faith and peace in our lives
He will lead the way
And provide for a better day.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
