Day Is Done
 
Day is done,
gone the sun
from the sky
born to die.
Do not cry,
for I lie not in yonder box.
That which housed my soul
is all that you see
and this is not
me.
I left a few days ago
when angels came
to bear my soul
away.
I have longed
for this
day
since the days of
World War
Two,
when I came home
with PTSD
which has remained
a part of
me.
I have died
a thousand times
in the darkness of the
night
only to awaken at first
light
and die again in
tomorrow's
darkness.
God has kept me
within His sight
and has protected me
by His might.
Now He bids me come
to my bright home
above
where all is peace and
purest love.
There are no tears where
I have gone
and tiredness is never
known.
No sadness at all;
No wounds to dress
No pills to bless, No shots
to take,
No lists to make,
No memory
loss
No sad farewells,
No broken hearts

Friendship Dies Upon the Vine
 
When friends say too much, too soon
whether it be in the Spring,
or in the Summer month of June;
 
Things are likely to get out of hand
with a lovely lass
or a handsome man.
 
It is friendship which bears the hurt
when the lovely lass
begins to flirt.
 
Now the heart begins to get involved
and those heart feelings
cannot always be solved.
 
Friendship is a worthy goal
without the pangs of love,
at least I've been told.
 
When love begins to enter in
this is a warning that
one is going to lose a friend!
 
So, dear friend of mine
take note of this;
friendship dies upon the vine.

Buckskin Joe
 
Born in the wilds of the Old West,
Was Buckskin Joe;
And he was a trapper,
A man you ought to know.
 
He was a loner,
Lived off the land;
Made his clothing
from buckskin he tanned.
 
He thus became known
To all who saw him go;
By the simple name,
Of buckskin Joe.
 
He pitched his tee pee
Wherever he went;
Slept in the woods,
In his make-shift tent.
 
He was doing OK
Until one day,
He saw an Indian maid
Bathing in the shade.
 
Her skin was velvet brown,
As she turned around,
And saw a man she didn't know,
But spied Buckskin Joe.
 
Now Buckskin Joe
Moved too slow
To see the way
the maid did go.
 
The sight of this maid
Stayed upon his mind,
And he swore to search
Until the maid he'd find.
 
And search he did,
For he knew every path,
In the wild woods Where
She took her bath.
 
The maid had her memories too,
For she was the age to woo;
Though she was shy,
Buckskin Joe caught her eye.
 
So they secretly sought
To find each other,
For love strikes a chord
In the heart of a lover.
 
Buckskin Joe was simple
But a right handsome man;
He was tall and strong
As the maid did understand.
 
In her innocent Indian heart
She was to marry a brave,
Whom she didn't love;
Thus she sought the Spirit above.
 
Then it was on a warm autumn day,
She took a path she didn't know,
Deeper into the woods she went,
Until she saw Buckskin Joe!
 
As she turned to run,
She fell into the arms
Of the handsome
Buckskin Joe.
 
She struggled to free herself,
But Buckskin Joe
Knew that if he lost his grip
The maid was sure to go.
 
He held her tightly
Against his chest,
And felt the rhythm
of her heaving breast.
 
He drew her ever near,
And saw in her mirrored eyes,
That this innocent maid
Was his greatest prize.
 
Though she fought to be free,
From Buckskin Joe,
Her heart told her plainly
That she didn't want to go.
 
Their love was consumated
In sight of a rainbow,
The willing Indian maid
And her lover, Buckskin Joe.
 
Thus you have heard of a love,
That you ought to know;
Of a beautiful Indian maid,
And her handsome Buckskin Joe.

SCARS LEFT BY A FRIEND
 
She walked right into my life
as if from Heaven she came.
The door to my life I opened wide,
never knowing that this was a game!
 
Had I known that this was a game
I would have never opened the door.
My heart, I would have guarded,
never allowing it to soar!
 
But soar it did and took flight
to realms of skies so blue,
where angels sang so sweetly
drowning out the words by you.
 
I wish I had listened to the angels
and never your words to hear;
but now your words are shadows
and with their memory comes a tear!
 
Scars in the heart and soul
cannot ever find repair;
for upon the walls of my memory
I always find the scars are there!
