Spring Rain In Northern California

As much as I am complaining
About all this rain
The roses are reaching out
Toward the sun
About to bloom
The daisies are as bright as can be
Oh and the pink on those geraniums
The hottest pink you ever saw
The grass has never been greener
And the fresh air breathed in
After a day of rain
Is heavenly.
Okay rain you win
You’ve more than done your job here
So can you move on down to
Southern California instead?

Fly Free Little Brother

You are no longer with us
But I trust where you are at
You are doing all the things
You would have wanted to do here
And then some.

You are no longer with us
But I trust you laugh, love and play
More than ever.

You are no longer with us
But I trust you are loved deeply by many.

You are no longer with us
And when I think of this
I feel pain
But I trust you feel no pain and are flying free.

Keep flying free little brother.

A Mother's Thoughts

I’m still here somewhere
Between the dishes and laundry
Breakfast, lunch and dinner
I’m still here.

I’m still here somewhere
Between the bills, the errands
Vacuuming, dusting, phones ringing
I’m still here.

I’m still here somewhere
Between school meetings, shopping, lawn mowing
Teasing, Refereeing, and “Mom, tell him to stop it”
I’m still here.

I’m still here somewhere
Between pre-school to high school
Toys to computers
I’m still here
But who am I?

Mom And Time

When I was a girl
I told my friends
My mom is so mean
I wish she would stop telling me
What to do!

When I was a teen
I told my friends
My mom is so mean
She won’t let me stay out
Late at night!

When I was a young adult
I told my friends
My mom is so mean
She keeps calling me and wanting to talk
All the time!

Now that she is gone
I wish she would tell me what to do

Was That Rainbow Placed There By You?

Drivin’ down the road,
Feelin’ heartache and cold,
Sayin’ good-bye was so hard to do;
I looked up to the sky
And out of my eyes,
I saw a rainbow,
Was it placed there by you?

Was that rainbow placed there by you?
Did you tell the sky
That I’m feelin' blue?
Was that rainbow placed there by you?

I was almost home,
Feelin’ oh so alone,
Barely believin’ were through;
Again in the sky,
Right before my eyes,
Another rainbow
Was it placed there by you?

A Good Friend She Was

A good friend she was
Would be there for me
Through ups or downs
A good friend she was.

A good friend she was
We laughed and had fun
Her smile was the best
A good friend she was.

A good friend she was
Her caring was amazing
Her love of life showed
A good friend she was.

A good friend she was
Kept her spirits up in pain
Never showed her hurts
A good friend she was.

On Loneliness

How can anyone be lonely
With so many people on this planet
Who would love a kind word
From someone like you?

How can anyone be lonely
When there are people who could use your help
Elderly people wanting a visitor
Or a little child needing just a smile from you?

How can anyone be lonely
When volunteers are needed daily
To help out at hospitals, rehabs, schools
Or animals who want “you” to pet them or take them on a walk?

How can anyone be lonely
When they really think about
All they truly have to be grateful for
And all the things there really are to do to
Not be lonely?

A Healthier Easter

This is the first Easter
No candy baskets will be here
But we had so many baskets
Each and every year.

The kids are older now
Candy they don’t want anymore
So this Easter the baskets sit empty
Behind the closet door.

Somehow I want the Easter Bunny here
Want those baskets filled with eggs so bright
But my teens want to be healthier
So they make sure that they eat right.

They forfeit sugar and junk
No more Peeps or a big chocolate bunny
But being without Easter Baskets on Easter
Seems to be very odd and funny.

Eighteen Isn’t Long Enough To Live

I remember how we played on the playground
Giggling as we ate our big stash of candy in the fort.
I remember how we jumped off the big ferry boat
Thinking we were the worlds greatest divers
Even when we did a belly flop.
I remember when we danced to American Bandstand
We all thought we were the best dancers ever.
I remember when you helped me find my Easter basket
When no one else would.
Or you shared your candy with me from Halloween
When mine was all gone.
I remember when you stood up for me
Taking my side
Whenever someone hurt my feelings.
I remember you were the only one I would talk to
When I was having a breakdown,
Because I knew you would listen to me.
Eighteen isn’t long enough to live.
I still don’t understand
Why there is gang violence

Just For Fun

Cartoons
Just for fun
Just sitting around doing nothing
Having no worries, no responsibilities
No school
Just cartoons
And sugar cereal
Just cartoons
And more sugar cereal with extra sugar on it
Just cartoons
And more sugar cereal with extra sugar on it
It is fun to be a kid when you can be a kid
And when no one is watching, you put even four sugars on your sugar cereal
Or you just scoop up a few spoons of sugar into your mouth and love the way it melts in your mouth, just for fun
And when no one is watching you jump on the couch and the bed and you run through the house and you knock things over and you don’t pick them up because you are kid and you are just having fun
And you laugh and you giggle and you dance funny dances
You watch more cartoons
Eat more sugar cereal and dig through the box for the toy
And take more spoons of sugar
While watching cartoons
