Poems(????) by Darrell

Every now and then – in a weaker moment;
My weird mind might have a serious thought!
If that thought comes out as a serious poem(????);
I write it down as though it was bought!

But the truth is, it's the "Darrel" in me;
'tis my "given name" showing it's power.
So I write the thought down – I spell check it well;
Then I go take a quick cold shower!

Last Wish

When at last my time has come to leave this vale of tears;
To ascend to be with God above, who'll quiet all my fears.

I hope He will allow me one last wish – I trust I don't sound smug;
Just on more kiss from my Sweet Wife, and one more gentle hug!

Our Dues

God put us on earth, not to be alone, but to share our life with others;
If we were fortunate in where we were placed, we had parents, sisters and brothers.

And if our life went as we would hope, we found a mate to share our dreams;
Though there may be tears – there is laughter too – life's not as long as it seems.

We must try to help others less fortunate, as we go on down the road;
Attempt to do the things we should to help those with a heavy load.

It doesn't always have to be a lot – just a smile to brighten a day;
A kind word or a story to share – can help to light the way.

So as we go about our daily chores – work with others – we have nothing to lose;
We never know when God may call us home – we must be certain we've paid our dues!
