NOTE: Word-of-mouth is the only advertising I have ever done and I thank those who have spread the word. I do not spend money advertising. I do not ask for donations. My poems are free so that even the poorest of the poor can be comforted with my poetry. I am pleased when others are blessed. No amount of money can surpass that. I am now blessed with over 10,000 page views per month and my prayer is that through my poetry, that this world can become a safer, more loving and respectful place - that those who do not know who Jesus really was (and still is), will come to know the peace, healing, sacrifice and grace He has given to those who truly believe in Him and faithfully follow. I pray that you enjoy my story poems...

Precious Memories 12-2-14


As I sit in my rocker,
here looking at our tree,
the Christmas lights and ornaments
are shining back on me.

Oh those precious mem'ries
of places long ago.
Oh, those precious mem'ries,
a-sledding in the snow!
We wiggled as we giggled and
our faces were aglow!
Oh those precious mem'ries -
a-bouncing down we'd go!

As I sit in my rocker
just looking at your face,
your eyes reflect the sparkling
of flames in fireplace.

Oh, those precious mem'ries.
of trudging up the hill.
Oh, those precious mem'ries.
We sledded down until -
you tipped the sled right over and
it gave us both a thrill!
Oh, those precious mem'ries.
That snow gave us a chill.

As I sit in my rocker.
and you sit there in yours,
I realize we're holding hands
as faithfulness endures.

Oh, those precious mem'ries.
Again, we'd get a shove.
Oh, those precious mem'ries.
Remember your lost glove?
Remember way atop the hill
that seemed so far above?
Oh, those precious mem'ries -
the day we fell in love.

As we sit in our rockers,
and you begin to snore -
I realize that every day
I love you more and more.

Oh, those precious mem'ries.
Oh, those precious mem'ries..
Oh, those precious mem'ries...
