Karlene Garner Poems
It Shows In Your Face
You don't have to tell how you live each day; You don't have to say if you work or play. A tried true thermometer serves in the place, However you live it shows in your face.
We'Re On A Party Line
The Smith baby broke his rib, I guess he fell from his crib. The hogs are selling cheap today. I'm sorry I bought mine.
Take Me There
Take me to where the sun shines forever. Take me to where the rainbow never ends.
One Of A Kind
What a very special friend you are indeed, When I'm with you, my feelings, I do not heed.
Don'T Close Those Gates Till I Get There
Save me a place up in Heaven, dear Lord. Don't close those gates till I get there. I may not hear the Angels when they call 'All aboard'.
Keep On Believing
You've got to keep on walking. One word won't tell people who you are;
Nature Is Smiling
I knew autumn long ago, Like a fairy tale. The mystique has seemed to grow Stronger each fall.
Part of the moon was falling down in the west, Dragging the whole sky with it to the hills.
Leaves Of October
In October fires of crayon ablaze Not familiar to her sun-filled days. 'Who painted this leaf with spots of brown'? 'Who painted the leaves that are drifting down'?
Some Dreams were meant to be just that A dream and nothing more A special place where fantasies exist Not open to realities door
It Shows In Your Face
You don't have to tell how you live each day;
You don't have to say if you work or play.
A tried true thermometer serves in the place,
However you live it shows in your face.
The false, the lies, that you bear in your heart,
Will not stay inside where it first got it's start.
Blood and muscle are a thin veil of lace;
What you wear in your heart, you wear on your face.
