Happy Father’s Day 👑

Honored I am to have you as my father. Anytime I need you, you’re always there….

Honored I am to have you as my father
Anytime I need you, you’re always there
Patting me on the back or
Passing a Kleenex my way
You show me how much you care.

For you always knew what was best
Although, at times, I did not know it
Taught me right from wrong and
How to sustain a good family of my own
Everyday, I’m proud to be your child, you
Raised me to be strong and independent.
So, today, I just want to say…

Daddy, I love you,
Always and forever,
You are my hero…ty 4 everything👔

Old family photo
the late 70’s

a day full of sunshine

i rise before you rise in effort to make…

i rise before you rise

in effort to make a day full of sunshine

aloud i hum as happy as a blue jay

awaiting the clouds to pass by my way

suddenly i see your ray of light aglow

as vibrant and as beautiful as a rainbow

your smile feels golden amidst the pain

your voice whispers like a sweet mornings rain

as soon as you touch me i exhale deeply

melting like the last snowfall in spring

i love the way your heart beats in sync with mine

as we both make an effort towards a day full of sunshine

don’t you weep

when times are bad, and you feel down…

when times are bad, and you feel down…

don’t you weep!

when you feel alone, and there’s no one around…

don’t you weep!

when the love of your life, has moved on…

don’t you weep!

when someone dear, passes on…

don’t you weep!

when strangers criticize, the way you look…

don’t you weep!

when your family gives, less than they took…

don’t you weep!

when you want to do right, but you do everything wrong…

don’t you weep!

when god fills your mind, heart, body and soul…

weep child weep!

poem written 2001 & art by melody cole

silently i sit

silently i sit

eyes damp

lips weak

trying to capture inspiration before time has run out

amazingly thirty years have not rung the chime of fulfillment

each thought momentarily elapses into a distant memory

every muscle in my body tends to be useless

silently i sit

eyes damp

lips weak
