The Measure of Love

take my hand in yours, hold on, don’t stop
take my heart in yours, listen, the beat is yours
step with me into the moonlight, the sunrise, the sun set
step side by side to the rhythm and pulse of one, loving and kind

Insistence of Age   
You turn my heart upside down, you turn my mind inside out, you twist me in knots; night after night until loneliness is all I've got; hammering these nights with dreaded thoughts. 

You threw away the key, no entrance, no admittance, to leave me with hopelessness in my desire; in a room all alone and away from you, high you stand on a pinnacle, a spire. 

I write until my heart bleeds out the words, soaking the page with sorrow; can’t go back, don’t look back, no sunrise in sight, not even a tomorrow.  The needle enters, striking the vein

Through the Gauze of Time    
Wrinkled and weathered
old age, the gauze of time
the mirror reflects

I smile, we are old
you throw back your head and laugh
I kiss your soft lips

Sweet Dreams

Joseph Grubb passed away, he was 92.
Rest peacefully now, Uncle Joe....We love you.

Flow into night’s slumber, soft summer breeze
winter is upon us, with snow drifts and freeze

sweet dreams of sunshine, bright colored days
away from the darkness of cold shadowed haze

sleep tight, sleep warm
sleep into the morn’
sleep until dawn breaks
until God’s soul He takes
