Feels Like Tears From Heaven

Bourbon Run 2010 at Four Roses Distillery

“Feels Like Tears From Heaven”

Once again I have been made very aware
The ‘Power Of Now’, when you are in presence of someone you care

You are not to know that your time with them will be the last
Be present, observe your time because each minute could be the past

We have no idea whats ahead and is a blessing
I did not know the sorrow and heartache that I would be addressing

We lost our good friend Tom on Wednesday the 19th at twilight
The medics tried to save him, they fought for hours but lost the fight

Riding home on his motorbike a car turned in front
Happened so quick, could not stop and he took the brunt

He was a gentle man, quiet, methodical, generous in all ways
We all will miss him and his loved ones will have many empty days

He, for those who did not know him had the clearest blue eye stare
We have had some fun, with a few shots of Patrón , I have even known him to fall off a chair

Recognize Tom with his white cap that never blows off, it makes us laugh
Always tied to his handle bars he has a head band scarf

Tom has ridden with us many thousands of miles
The more he rides the bigger his smiles

As I ride out the gate each day on my Motorbike
I say a small prayer, easy one that I like

‘My dear Angels keep me safe don’t let me fall’
Now I know there is one more, Tom to answer the call

I am going to be safe like the rest of us will be
Cause he will be there around us in spirit, though you won’t see

Lord we will miss him, his walk, his smile, for us it was way too soon
Hugs, his hospitality, to watch him dance with his love to a romantic tune

He just loved to ride but it came to and end that night
The Lord had a different idea, and his might is right

It was his time that night, he did not make it home by the time of seven.
It rained hard next day, when the words came from his friend to me “They feel like tears from heaven’.

Love you Tom

He IS 16 Today

IMG_0504

My beautiful Grandson Jayden is 16 today
He is thoughtful, gracious, funny, and more I could say

That precious little boy has become a rising star
He can’t wait to get his license and drive the car

Now that is an experience all of its own
Teaching him to drive, my nerves are blown

For some reason we stay too close to the road side
Letter boxes whizz past my window, it’s a kinda jerky ride

Anyhow he is not too bad
When he goes and gets lessons I will be glad

He has become a great surfer, attacks any waves
He has become fearless, a pleasure to watch as I do many days

My heart fills with pride as I watch him grow
Into the person he has become, his future bright I know

Lord where did that time, those years go, they sped away
It’s hard to believe he is 16 years old today

Poem Friday – Whiskey, Wine or Beer

Whiskey, Wine or Beer
Author: Lesley Voth

I hope your christmas day was fun
The stress gone, the shopping all done

It is for me a special time to give and share
To those you love and to those that simple pleasures are rare

We take the time and make the effort to chat and skype
Email everyone, pleasant and happy words we type

In a few days it is New Years Eve
An evening of fun and frivolity I believe

2012, it came up on us so fast didn’t it
2011, bloody good its going, twas a year of shit

Though a good thing has come from 2011, many families glad to receive
Bringing our soldiers from Iraq home, permanently, not a temporary leave

It brings tears to our eyes to see the young children’s delight
Mum or Dad is home for good, they no longer have that war to fight

It does make me sad though when I think of those children in that war
Those babies that were killed, Parents hearts torn to the core
Dear Lord we pray for no more

No more killing, no children lay dying
No more leaving families in pain and crying

So I hope you had a great Christmas and have a fabulous New Year
It is prosperous, healthy, happy and full of good cheer

The New Year 2012 is almost here
So lift your glass whether its filled with Whiskey, Wine Or Beer
