Richard Wlodarski Poems

Lest We Forget

Lest we forget
Those who were blinded
So that we may see
Lest we forget


What is a mother?
Someone whose life
Gave birth
To a new soul

The Presence Of Christmas

May you open your hearts
To the less fortunate
Feel within their heart
And hug them with your love


And Jesus takes you down to that place by the Big River
Where sinners gather with the Salvation Army chatter
And you know you wanna believe
Even though you cannot hear Him

Father's Day Like None Other

It's Father's Day today
Not quite like yesterday
The silent enemy
Forcing us to be friends
