Grace Burke Poems
Goodbye My Son
You came into this world with a healthy, lustrous cry This wonder of a little boy, my handsome little guy This love I had for you as I nursed you at my breast Filled my heart to overflow as I held you to my chest.
Lonely Vs Love
We travel through this life, make friends along the way Some will last forever, but many will not stay We laugh, we learn, we cry and tell each other whims But very seldom do we let another person in.
Pick Me A Daisy
Pick me a daisy, I don't need a rose Give me the sunshine to tickle my toe I don't need diamonds or jewelry of gold I just need a lover to have and to hold.
My tears fall, but no one sees them My cries echo in the emptiness of my life No one is there to comfort me
I'Ll Stand By You
My dear friend, take my hand walk with me a way Know that I will never leave, I will always stay Nothing you can say will cost our friendship dear I will always stand by you, of that you cannot fear.
Where has the time gone, what happened to my teens What's happened to my twenties, my fifties and between The time has gone to quickly, the time has gone so fast Tomorrow's already been here it is now the past.
When the storm clouds gather overhead When the darkest of nights falls I will stay near you, I'll hold you close You need not ever call.
As you sleep in slumber I softly kiss your cheek I try to convey my love for you with the mere whisper of my lips The feelings that swell within my heart overwhelm me How can it be possible to love someone this much.
Little Timmy stretched as he jumped down off his bed His hair was all a tangled mess, curls around his head His socks were brown and rumpled but he only had one shoe He couldn't find the other one, now what was he to do.
Come sit with me at sunrise as we watch the day begin As the glorious rays of sunshine herald in a new day Know that I am here for you if you ever need a friend Talk to me, confide in me, know that I care.
Time Goes On
I paused for just a minute on the roadway of my life The path that I had travelled was filled with loss and strife The distant far horizon seemed many miles away I wished that I could stop and rest for just another day.
I stood upon the mountain top among the many trees Can anyone looking down notice it is me I am lost can no one see that I am all alone Won't someone come and rescue me and show me the way home.
I saw a little sparrow spread it's wings and try to fly It's wing was bent, it couldn't seem to lift up in the sky The world was full of danger for this tiny little soul And on and on it fought for life, it was so very bold.
What I see when the sunsets is this beautiful show of colors It reaches into my soul and makes me feel so alone Yet it makes me feel one with the universe It makes me want to cry and hold fast to what I hold dear
My Best Friend
She's always there beside me no matter where I go
In the darkest of the night and even in the snow
She loves me as no other, she's loyal to the core
As far as a companion, I couldn't ask for more.
She's always there to greet me in the morning when I rise
She never will desert me, she never will despise
She's always there beside me when I think that I might cry
And forever looks at me with that love light in her eyes.
