My Treasures

Submitted by Mary Beth, written by Blanche Jones

I am not rich in lands or wealthy goods,

No jewels rare or hoards of yellow gold.

My treasures are a host of simple things

More precious far than boundless wealth untold.

I have the water tumbling over rocks,

A pine tree standing tall against the sky;

The burnished red and gold of autumn woods,

A snow-capped mountain rising proud and high.

The smell of roses blooming in the rain,

A rainbow flashing swiftly out of sight,

The sound of raindrops on a farmhouse roof,

A night-bird calling in the night.

The music of the wind among the trees,

A flaming sunset in the evening glow,

A garden when the dusk begins to fall,

A mother’s lullaby when lights are low.

I have the rapture of a baby’s smile,

A woman’s happy laughter and her tears,

A treasure that a king might hold in envy,

A wealth of dreams to last me through the years.

 

Afterglow

Submitted by Sallie, written by Helen Marshall

I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.

I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when day is done.

I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,

Of happy times, and laughing times

And bright and sunny days.

I’d like the tears of those who grieve

To dry before the sun

Of happy memories I leave behind when day is done.

A Note of Appreciation

Submitted by G, written by Anonymous

This is NOT just a Note of Appreciation

This isn’t just an Ordinary thank-you wish;

It’s given as a Special token of Appreciation….

This note is filled with Endless thanks and gratitude,

And it holds the same good feelings That you gave to me.

You made me feel cared about,

And that is one of the most Important feelings in the world.

You gave of yourself In your time and interest,

And I want you to know that I will Always remember your kindness.

You are one of the special people Who goes out of their way for others,

And I am grateful that you were there for me.

 

Tiny Buds

Submitted and written by Denise

May the blue birds of happiness

Rest upon your white picket fence,

As they watch over your

Blossoming Family Tree.

May the tranquility

Of their jubilant bird songs

Magically captivate

Your children’s senses,

Luring them toward Sweet Lullabies!

Tend to your garden of seedlings,

Carefully guiding them,

Continue to nurture each other

Lavishing your tiny buds

With unconditional love.

For tomorrow…

Your seedlings will become trees,

Spreading their wings

To plant seedlings of their own.
