His Gift of Love



My heart is full with love of thee
touching my soul as He comforts me

Carrying burdens upon my back
He tenderly sends strength which I lack

My grief sometimes will make me cry
I look to His heavens asking why

My woe will soon leave as burdens lift
remembering His love and His gifts

Today might be sad a tear I do shed
wiping it away hearing what He said

Through Me all is possible do not fear
blessings come to you - for loving Me so dear

A Memory Tear

A Message from Gracie...

There comes a time when heart strings hum
when they remember long ago someone
who touched their life with simple strings
with lines of lace and special things

Memories of days of young and free
when life was happy deep within thee
not a care as one grew each day
learning about life in a simpler way

Time has past and lessons were learned
some are good others to be yearned
passing thoughts live in thy soul
forever remembered special to behold

A tear crest the eye, but not a moment sad
memories of joy ever so glad
words express those wondrous years
remembered thoughts shall bring that tear -

of happiness

Lost Valentine

from Rhoda  and Gracie

Valentine pure ruby red
stir memories of a lost love gone
that promised to be forever from our
moment of sunset to our then sleepy dawn

Through time, hearts lost its love
with dreams dying in vain
moving to another life that knows
no special love shall remain

Valentine ruby red glow
gone with an icy cold wind
as time erased the meaning of
love that was taken from within

Cherishing thoughts for a moment
one sits alone and dreams for awhile
memories of lost love thoughts bring
tears with a saddened, but bright smile -

that hides a lost Valentine

Thoughts of a Heart


Embrace lightens the heart with ease
Love from the start fulfills one well
Shadow dance an art that does please
Captures the lost part of one’s shell

Reach out to hope and destined love
Learn how to cope with your own faith
Take a chance grope a flying dove
Don’t dangle from rope of past wraith

Love that has died shall fade away
Tears have now dried eyes see sun’s ray
Stolen truths that lied stay where lay
Heart opens up wide brighter day

Ending ones dark night now sees glow
Dawn a bright light comes with the sun
Morning beam hold tight so we know
Love is all right heart now has won
