rocky relations

Why is life so hard
every minute, every hour
every day

It seems so rough and rocky
as we travel together along
this way

It's been this way for
quite some time now
many years

And though we have both
good and bad times, I still
shed tears

And wonder just when this
rockiness will end; I think
I spy

a glimpse then it seems as if
it's gone in a blink of
an eye

New Year's regrets

at the New Year
many resolve to
do their best

but I am finding
that more than
life leaving us blest

I am leaving
behind years'
worth of regrets

what gifts to give

what gifts to give
again this year
seems always the query
as the time draws near
I love to give
lasting things
or things that love
and time both brings
it's not so hard if you
know the recipient
and what they enjoy
and what compliment
it brings to give
something they said
they will enjoy for now
and they year ahead

birthday cheer

what shall I do
for my birthday
this year?

no matter the age
I would love to enjoy
birthday cheer

bowling, ice skating
or walking through the
lit up park

each of these can
be a big hit when
given the lark
