Donna McCord Poems

Hit Title Date Added

Marriage is the joining of two bodies and two minds
Past mistakes are unwanted and better left behind
From this day forth you must take care of each other
You’ll learn to draw strength each day from one another

Hurricane Katrina

The week before Labor Day in August it was,
In 2005 the whole town was a-buzz.
There was a killer coming, a huge hurricane
Headed for New Orleans, Katrina was her name.

Kindred Spirits

Sometimes when you least expect it someone comes your way
That touches you invisibly with what they have to say
They seem so familiar like you’ve known them your whole life
And they radiate around you and envelope you in light.

The Joys Of Motherhood

There are no rules of motherhood, you make them as you go
The physical pain will soon subside and love will bloom and grow
You bandage all the boo boos and nurse them when they're sick
And help them learn the lessons and hope the good ones stick.

The Gift Of Friendship

How can I ever thank you both for everything you’ve done?
What you’ve done for my daughter, though she swears she’s having fun
Giving her a job so close to Christmas is a gift within itself
That means she can help buy Christmas and play Santa’s little elf.

From The Cradle To The Grave

A child is born and the world doesn’t care
There’s famine and poverty and disease everywhere
There’s crime in the streets and a wolf at the door
The hustle and bustle and no one cares anymore

I Choose To Live

She was just a kid when she picked them up and said, “I think I’ll try this”
But now she’s forty and realizes too late that smoking turned into a death wish.
How could she have known what damage it does at such a tender young age?
It’s too late now, her life is over and all she has left is her courage.

Mama's Little Garden

My Mama’s little flowerbed had roses of all kinds
When I close my eyes I still see the red ones in my mind
As she gently cupped the flower with tender loving care
To inhale the sweet aroma that always lingered there.

I Believe

I believe in God, and in the power of prayer,
And in finding salvation somewhere out there.
I believe that some friends you meet here in this life
Are still found today in a husband and wife.

Angel Unaware

So small, so fragile, but perfect tiny hands and toes.
He never took a single breath, and why is that? God knows.
A little boy so innocent will never walk in Daddy’s shoes.
The why of it we do not know, nor something we would choose.
