UNEXPECTED VISITOR

There was a knock at the door and I went to see

Who was the unexpected visitor here to see me

There stood a person near and dear to my heart

I hadn’t seen in the years we’d been apart

He’d changed a bit but not too much

The twinkle in his eyes–dimple in his chin

Drew me as it did back then

More than that was the place in my heart

Where coveted memories will never depart

We visited a while. I laughed and giggled as a child

The past became the present for only a short time

Oh how wonderful to be young again

Not in body, surely in mind

He still took my breath away

As he did the very day

I first laid eyes on him

When I thought He’d never look my way

I was grateful for answered prayers–to know he was doing fine

My smile lingered as I slowly shut the door

A sense of calm covered me when I realized

I might never see him again until we meet in eternity

THE LITTLE THINGS

The little things no one can see

The little things between you and me

The little things you point out

Only for you and me to see

 

You guide me everywhere I go

Whisper in my ear

Only for me to know

When to stay and when to go

 

The little things

Means more each day

The little things that you say

Keeps me straight so I won’t stray

 

The little things I hear and see

Let me know you love me

Each and every day you say

What guide’s me on my way

 

The little things no one can see

The little things between you and me

The little things the way you lead

Only for you and me to see

 

Peaceful Place

I was taking my morning walk when a whisper beckoned me to come. It wasn’t a person I could see. Just a sweet calm voice calling me. I turn toward the direction the call came from. I heard trickling stream and a breezy hum. Peace and tranquility was the drawing force. Captivated me and pulled me off course. A momentary respite and Joy overflowing was just what I needed to keep on going.
