Get In Line


He had a dream, he knew the way

God is Watching You!

To each one work and still have time to play

To know thyself and to think of others

To tuck his children safe under the covers

To go to church with family at side

To sing and pray and not have to hide

To walk and view the skies so blue

A neighbor stops and says how are you

To know that different colors could well do blend

And broken hearts would always mend

A man a woman and a child too

Could mix in business and live next to you

The Lord our god has placed each of us here

To lend a hand and a listening ear

Our world has divided and gone separate ways

We fear our children to go out and play

Gun shots heard and murders each day

I don’t think this is how God hath shown the way

We stick to ourselves and not know the names

Of neighbors near and there is no shame

God looks down over the world he hath made

And hangs his head as his memories fade

God lifts his arms and reaches out

Please say my name go ahead and shout

For this is my command that all of you do

To spread my name and say I love you

I want this world to go back to the start

I want my love to be in each of your hearts

God says I am coming again some day

Please come together and form the way

For me to lift you up and take you home

For this is the plan I have always shown

Please put the guns behind closed locks

Teach your child what thoughts to block

Share the news of me with others

Make sure you always respect your mothers

I am telling you all one more time

I will be coming now get in line.

Yesterday, I wrote about our ornery kitten, Cali. I just wanted you to see her curiosity never quits. Here is a photo I took of her last evening, trying to get the last of the milk out of a glass. She should have been named Nosy instead of Cali!

 

 

 

 

This Is For Tilly

I found a suggestion in my comments from Tilly to write a poem about Cali, our kitten, so I

A six-week old kitten.

will give it a try.

 

Silence can be so heavy

With only a television box

Hearing my brother’s tears

And darning his old socks.

Aging process moving along

Can create a cloud of gloom

I need some company here for me

In this dismal little room.

I was asked a question today

From a friend who lives near by

If I wanted to adopt this kitty

And take the sadness from her eye.

I jumped right in with an answer

And said oh yes I will

For I prayed to God this question

For my lonely heart to fill.

Cali, the kitty, is her new name

She craves the love I  give

She looks at me with adoring eyes

And has given me reasons to live.

Her dances of play with her toy mice

Has brought me laughter more than once

She kisses my nose to show me love

My prayer was now answered from the one above.
