First Date

FIRST DATE

I remember the first day we met, it was on a Sunday how can I forget.
You walked past me smelling like a rose.
I stopped and I looked, and you gave me a pose.
You stood there looking so dignified, in those black stockings running down your thighs,
Fingernails the color of pure gold, a small diamond protruding from your nose.
From that moment I thought it was fate, so I asked you for a date.
You looked at me and rolled your eyes, like this was some kind of surprise.
But I can still see the twinkle in your eyes. even though I may be running late,
I still remember our very first date. It was on a Sunday afternoon, now we’re on our honeymoon, and I still remember you smelling like a rose,
That day you stopped – looked at me, gave me a pose, then rolled your eyes.

Only a Dream

Only a Dream

I feel like I’m in a dream, like I’m flying over mountains, valleys, and streams.

You take me higher than the birds and the bees. It’s so beautiful being lost in a dream.
My heart is beating so fast, how much longer can this last? “Lost in a dream”, flying higher and higher until I reach the clouds.

How do I know if this is a dream? Because I’m flying higher than anyone can believe.

Somehow, someway, you touch my heart, and made me believe that I could fly higher over all of the trees.

So, if this is a dream don’t wake me up, let me continue to fly high over rooftops.
So, if this is what love feels like, don’t wake me up. Let me continue to fly.
Because in the end – we all will realize – it was only a dream.

Life Gets Better

Life Gets Better

Life only gets better when you learn to make lemonade,
It turns real-life struggles into something you can handle every single day.
So, don’t be ashamed to walk in the shade cuz –
“LIFE GETS BETTER “- when you learn to make lemonade.

Belmont Tree

Belmont Tree

There is a tree up on the hill that sets itself apart,
From the daffodils and other trees that flourish in the park.

This tree has lost all of its leaves, and its will to live on in the park.
A tree that has stood tall for many years, and now it’s losing its outer bark.

But yet, there were times when it stood tall all through the day, and shadows in the dark,
and turned its branches to the sky in all kinds of weather – “leaning one way then the other – when the wind continues to blow.”

A tree that stood on the hilltop with branches trying to reach the morning sun. When it was young, people would come, and sit beneath its cooling shade, and lean upon its trunk.

But now it’s old, and there is no shade to hold back the sun’s heat waves. One day the men will come and take the tree away.

When everything seems to be okay, they will plant another tree. Hoping that it will grow, and cover the hilltop with lots of lovely shade, and maybe a swirling breeze to make it a wonderful day.

“Then People will come – play and run – under the shade of the newly planted Belmont tree.”

By Lenny Jaynes

The tree may have been planted as part of a tribute to World War 1 veterans.

Thankful

THANKFUL

It’s not easy raising a family today,
You work hard – for very little pay.
Wake up early and struggle through the day,
wondering how you going to pay those bills you just made – with very little pay.
Yes, it’s no wonder how you make it from day-to-day,
Paycheck-to-paycheck – for very little pay.
Holidays are coming so you must pray,
And thank God for giving you the strength to make it through the day,
And thank Him for all the blessings He sent your way,
And let Him know that you’re THANKFUL – for that – very little pay.
