Little Taylor..little one

Little Taylor ..little one
Nothing wrong have you ever done
And yet your life so beautiful and so  sweet
Was met with  so much terribleness and so much tragedy

For you I sing for you I pray
That you play now in that place of ever endless day
Where angel bands forever sing
And give beauty and song to your everything

Running waters.. a  bunch a weeds
Were your welcome as you slept  lifelessly
Beneath that coldness, beneath  that emptiness
Your tiny-ness awaited the hands of the Everlasting heavenly-ness

For you I sing for you I pray
That you play now in that place of ever endless day
Where angel bands forever sing
And give beauty and song to your everything

Though we haven't ever met I will forever see
What God's spirit whispered and had revealed to me
That you little Taylor lay were you couldn't  ever rise up
And that yours was such a tragedy and such a  bitter cup

For you I sing for you I pray
That you play now in that place of ever endless day
Where angel bands forever sing
And give beauty and song to your everything

They've earned respect

Thank you to all our veterans.. 
living and deceased

There are some who went beyond 
and took up arms to give and fight
They sacrificed time ..they sacrificed all 
they've earned respect; it is their right

Some were young and some were old
Who gave for us.. and this we're told
They trained for battle and some have fought
To protect the rights that history's bought

There are some who went beyond 
and took arms to give and fight
They sacrificed time ...they sacrificed all 
they've earned respect; it is their right

Because of time and sacrifice
Some paid the cost the largest price
They've lost their lives but still some live
Caught up in a time they can't forgive

There are some who went beyond 
and took up arms to give and fight
They sacrificed time ..they sacrificed all 
they've earned respect; it is their right

We see some wounded and others ..not
But all have given a measured spot
Of time and valor and of readiness
An oath they made and promises..

There are some who went beyond 
and took up arms to give and fight
They sacrificed time ...they sacrificed all 
they've earned respect; it is their right

The sons and daughters of so many here
Were ready with guns to protect what's dear
Our democracy ... our land so brave
They are the colors in the flag we wave...

There are some who went beyond 
and took up arms to give and fight
They sacrificed time... they sacrificed all 
they've earned respect; it is their right

Validation..

I can now move my life forward and I can truly be free
For my eyes have beheld it the proof of my history
My memories had revealed it but my mind wouldn't agree
That all these things happened and are truly a part of me

But now I am enlivened and I am truly set free
Free from those memories that spoke often to me
I have all my validations: my confirmation of it all
My spirit's  no longer held up in that little one so small

The flashbacks kept happening .. .the flashbacks of a time
When my littleness was breaking but couldn't ever define
All that was happening or even know why
The grown ups kept telling me "there's no reason to cry"

But now I am enlivened and I am truly set free
Free from those memories that spoke often to me
I have all my validations: my confirmation of it all
My spirit's  no longer held up in that little one so small

The relatives  all reminded me that  "it was all  long ago
It's time to move forward  .. and just ...let it all go
But I need some sort validation of everything I've known
For no one had ever consoled me for the scars that I own

But now I am enlivened and I am truly set free
Free from those memories that spoke often to me
I have all my validations: my confirmation of it all
My spirit's  no longer held up in that little one so small

For everyone who's reading and wondering as they read
Just know that every child is worthy and precious indeed
Though others may silence them.. make light of their words
The Almighty One's watching and will make known all  their worth..

But now I am enlivened and I am truly set free
Free from those memories that spoke often to me
I have all my validations: my confirmation of it all
My spirit's  no longer held up in that little one so small

Autumn chill

Frigid temperatures fill the air
There is a  crispiness everywhere
Frosty flakes are on the plants
Blustery breezes make us dance

Colorful leaves begin to fall
Earthy colors  warm us all
In   this coldness .. all we see
Autumn's blessing us:  you and me...

Buttons buttoning.. boots are on
Mittens, scarfs are ready for dawn
Gear for frigidness. is our wear
Autumn's prepping us for wintry air

Just a tiny minute

Our God is present..He's speaking now
Hoping you will hear and listen somehow
Turn away from talking ..from all that noise
Take a moment now and..make that choice

Just a  tiny minute is all it would take
It's not too long for goodness sake
Have you the time.... have you the care
To hear the One who gives earth and air

HE's here right now He's also there
Whispering His blessings everywhere
He'll do for you and He'll do for me
What He did for Moses at that red sea

Resolve within you ..resolve today
To make some time....to pause and pray
To hear Him speaking:  to hear His call:
This God of Love ..this God of  all

Wintry chill

Morning comes and the darkness leaves
And all that is  around us now receives
The Light of lights and Breath of breaths
And the Spirit comes  and It fills all depths.

The nippiest coolness.. the frostiest air
Reaches out and spreads itself everywhere
Painting its pictures and icing the way
Frosting the windows with a wintry spray

Darting and digging the creatures  all rush
Digging through leavelets and all of the brush
Looking for  nibblets and looking for  food
Stashed away carefully when  weather was good

Vehices are running and are warming inside
Time's a bit pressured by coldness outside
Dressing and driving must take a new pace
Iciness is dictating .this isn't a race..
