This Day Is Yours, It Belongs To You (Happy Birthday)

A birthday poem written by request of a friend over on Facebook...

This day is yours, it belongs to you,Do anything that you desire to do.Watch your favorite shows, eat your favorite food,Do anything that puts you in a good mood. Your friends are here to celebrate too,This day is yours, it belongs to you.You’ve been work...

All Hallow's Eve

This was written tonight for a Facebook event sponsored by author Fran Ayers...

It’s All Hallow’s Eve and there’s little sound, Except for a few goblins dancing around,An old witch creates another evil spell,Summoning demons from down in Hell. The old hag stirs her boiling stew,Adds eye of a newt, and another shrew,The cauldron bubbl...

I Offered You My Heart And Soul

Sometimes you just have to move on and take care of yourself...

I wish it could be different, I wish there was another way, If only for the sake of your children, I would have liked to stay. I came into your life a few years back, When you were looking for a man, I’ve tried to help anyway I could, But I’ve done all th...

Arrested By The Grammar Police

Yeah, all you Grammar Police...here what I gotta say...

It seems that lately I can’t get no peace, From all those so-called Grammar Police,Who for some reason think that I should care,The difference between there, they’re and their.They want to analyze everything I say,Just waiting for me to lie when I want to...

Guilty Of What, I Do Not Know

I know some people get depressed around the holidays...not sure this will cheer anyone up though...

The darkness descended upon the night, So heavily you could hear it hit the ground,The birds still sang their songs by day, But I could no longer recognize the tune.My feet ran furiously, But I gained no ground.I reached out,But no one was there.I looked...

The Teacher

Just don't tell my dog she might know more than me...it'll go right to her head...

I want to teach my dog,Some tricks that are new,Like sit, fetch and heel,As a dog’s expected to do.But after many hours,Things are not going good,For despite all my efforts,She won’t do as she should.She can’t fetch to save her life,And it’s just a little...

Relatives

I bet there just might be a couple people here who feel the same...

At family gatherings throughout the year,There are those who add to the holiday cheer,Those who brighten up your day,Every time they come your way.Most are a pleasure to be around,As fine as any friends I’ve found,But, there are a few I’d like to lose,If...

Badges

This was written for you...and you know who you are...:)

I sit in a chat room by myself, Only nineteen more days to go, One day I’ll be a legend, With another badge to show. Next I’ll try to add some friends, I only need ninety-eight more, I might have to do some recruiting, Perhaps go door to door. I’d really...
