Once and Forever

The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi, 1919 EDWARD EGGLESTONImage by Sheepback.Cabin via Flickr

I loved you in the long ago,

My heart was yours forever.

We shared life as sated as we might,

Tho, it really did not matter.

For, it ran away with the wind

             Leaving my heart soaring.

                  The freedom of my soul,

                       Spun like a disc, out of control.

                            When will we intertwine?

                                  Will we share this space again?

                                         Will it happen?

                                               Am I dreaming?

                                                      Can I just pretend?

A Poem For My Dad

     This is a poem I'd posted a while back and thought it an appropriate tribute to my Dad. I'd written it the day of his funeral and though, it has been six years, I still miss him everyday.

Just a Teardrop Away
I knew no man with a warmer heart
A giving nature was just one part
With sadness in his eyes
And a smile on his face
With a pain in his heart
That years could not erase
At times we were close
Never too far away
He gave comfort with a hug
And hope for a new day
I pray that he knew of my love for him
From a daughter to a Dad
And from deep within
The time that we shared
Brought us laughter and tears
Always appropriate through the years
Life still goes on Dad
Though you're not here
But, I'll never forget your love
Not for a minute, a day or a year

I have a 'Special' Father's Day wish for my son, who is raising two boys of his own.

~ My wish for him is that it will not pass too quickly and he will feel the love and cherish every moment of fatherhood. ~ Happy Father's Day!
I love you, Kory!

And to my son-in-laws and my brothers and all of the men who have the honor of 'Fatherhood' bestowed upon them. It is one of the most important, if not the most important task, you will be given to do.

I wish you all a very Happy Father's Day!

The Beautiful Blogger Award

I have met wonderful friends on my internet travels. We comment on each others blogs, chat on facebook and tweet on twitter. And there are a few that aren't very talkative, but you know they are there and when you don't see their name pop up, after a day or two, you begin to wonder and worry about them. Rebecca Emin or better known in the twitter world as @Boolawoola is just that type of friend.  I miss her when she isn't around. I look for her name in anticipation to see what she has to say. She is entertaining, has a great perspective on life and she is funny. The name of her blog is Ramblings of a Rusty Writer.

     Recently, I received a total surprise from her. Rebecca awarded me a Beautiful Blogger Award and included me with a great group of bloggers, whom I also enjoy and respect. 

                  Rebecca, I am honored and I accept. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  ~

       Now, I must give you seven random facts about myself and nominate seven other bloggers, as well. So, here we go!

1. I enjoy rainy days, as much as sunny days.
2. I look forward to waking up early, before the world  comes to life.
3. I don't mind being alone. I enjoy my own company.
4. I have bouts of depression, but I'm pretty good at talking myself out of them, most of the time.
5. I am a pushover when it comes to children, especially my grandchildren.
6. I prefer the countryside to the city.
7. I don't believe that everything is black or white.

There are so many beautiful blogs and bloggers and I appreciate all of them. However my task is to choose only seven.

These Beautiful Bloggers will fill you with heart, inspiration and knowledge! 

I'm sure you can name many more. Why don't you take a moment to introduce them here, in the comment section, so they can be noted as well?
