My Name Is Michael Western

Posted: December 21, 2010 in Best Wishes

I have been writing but not posting my recent poems, the pressure of Christmas seems to have gotten to me. Today however I must make an exception since it is a very important date for a very important person. I sent it off to her and she loved it. Now that is the kind of reaction that warms a person’s heart. This poem may not have great significance to you but to her it was “awesome”

 

My Name Is Michael Western

 

Movies can
be a favorite pass time

You’ll get
pleasure from men fighting crime

 

Not just
cops but lawyers and now Burn Notice men too

Any one
suddenly cut from their undercover agency do

Michael
Western specializes in making wrongs right  

Evildoers
are demolished with his cunning and might

 

 

In the new
TV series he changes personalities

Switching
in to roles that require his expertise

 

My sister
is generally equaled to shifting roles

I see her
become doctor, carpenter, driller of holes

Caring for
family and strangers for pets purposely 

Her
favorites are the family dogs but she 

Accepts
the neighborhood cats like Ginger and the rest

Every
action is unselfish and nothing done with protest

Love and
assertive Christian values make her with no doubt

 

When a
crisis steps in she will jump to put the fire out

Every time
she can be counted on to be first at your door

She gives
her all and will give a whole lot more

To help
you if conditions allowed and so like the spy

Every
wrong she will fight to right, she will certainly try

Rest will
come easier when she is in your corner

No
MacGyver or Michael Western is any where better

Did You See Him

Posted: November 17, 2010 in Best Wishes

What a glorious era this is when technology allows you to see what is going live for miles and miles away. When my friend called me and I saw her new born baby, it was as if I was there with her and her husband, in the same room, sharing their joy. I’ll plant a Rose and keep it for him

 

Did You See Him

 

Did you see
their little baby

In arms
resting peaceably

Delightfully
sweet, did you, see?

 

You see
how with experience he stayed

On mommy’s
bosom and quietly laid

Unconcern
of troubles, not yet afraid

 

See too
his beautiful lips and chin

Eyes not
yet debuting and sun not yet on skin

Enjoying
being on the outside where kisses and embraces begin

 

He is the
center of attraction, the  apple of the
eye

Incredible
bundle of joy in this little guy

Mikko is a
blessing,
Did You See Him, their gift from on high

I was privileged to hear her sing recently and although it was not at the kind of event that I would have been looking for talent, I totally enjoyed her singing. I came away believing that she sings better than one of the classical greats that my family often compares here to.  Today we celebrate her birthday and I wish her the very best.

 

Paula Hinds

 

Pure in
voice and personality

An angel
who sings to God’s glory

Unbelievable
but if you can hear 

Lyrics
sung beyond compare

And when
she sings harps play

 

Her voice
echoes them in a melodious way

I know
it’s a gift Lord and she does too

Never
refusing to use it for service to you

Delighting
your ears as she makes her joyful noise

She has a
blessing which your people enjoys

 

 

 

And Mikko Makes Three

Posted: November 16, 2010 in Best Wishes

So happy, so proud and so tired. The couple welcomes their first child, a baby boy who was here after 40 minutes of delivery time. She had a beautiful and blessed pregnancy which resulted from a wonderful union. The labor was similarly blessed and now this child that arrived on Thursday November 11, 2010 at 7:58am weighing 7lbs 7ozs and measuring 19.5 ins.

 

And Mikko Makes Three

 

A proud father he is today

Now God’s miracle and all is okay

Divine Father blessed them with this little boy

 

Mikko he will me called and his life they’ll enjoy

It is expected that he will keep them up nights late

Keep them changing and feeding him but it will be great

Kind Father entrusted them with his little soul

On them to turn to, his troubles they will console

 

Mend bruises and treat insect bites

Assist him with studies and keep him from fights

Knees he will be taught are used to pray

Earnest praises to the Lord and to thank him each day

So many responsibilities come in so little a package

 

Turned up at 7:58am, 7lb 7oz. with obvious lineage

He looks like his dad although measuring inches 19.5

Really small by comparison but in time he will thrive

Eventually will be taller than his mom, may be dad too

Enjoy your baby boy Mikko and know God loves you

I tried my Bajan because I know how much you must miss hearing and reading the Bajan vernacular. Remember how much fun you got from all the local artistes here and some of the region’s best too. Well I am far from good but  I think I am a little better that the foreigners that you now live among, may be you are specking like them

 

Laura Gauss

 

Look I
thought you did gine keep in touch

And thee years
gone an I ‘aint hear you much

Until I
can hear you again

Rest
assure you automatically stop aging

Automatically
stop getting old

 

Got to
hear you again and until then yah age on hold

Ah wannah
celebrate but you still is 25

Unable now
to determine how long you’d been alive

So try and
keep in touch ‘cause I doan know wha tah say

Should be
30,35,40 wha evah, have a Happy Birthday!

A Bud On Her Rose Vines

Posted: November 11, 2010 in Best Wishes

Oh what excitement, what good news. God has once more smiled upon us and has given our sister a glorious baby with his kind mercy. Today she delivered a miracle of love, kept all okay and now is prepared to continue with her new family. I pray God’s continued blessings upon them  

 

A Bud On Her Rose
Vines

 

Along
the flower garden were the rose vines

 

Beautifully
organized in perfect lines

Unmatched
arrangements in shades of green

Did
not notice recent changes, hadn’t yet seen

 

On
one of the roses was a sure sign

Nature
did the usual blessing and we did find

 

Her
beautiful miniature blossom there on a tree

Every
flower that was around waited to see

Ready
for a safe opening and taking more time than all

 

Red
little blossom was determined for its curtain call

On
Sunday gone we awoke expecting it then

Signs
were unclear but still we waited for when

Eyes
and ears will at last meet but it wasn’t then to be

 

Very
expected was the blossom’s arrival, all wanted to see

It
wasn’t until Thursday the blossom showed a piece of heaven

Night
gone
Morning awoke and after taking forty at 7:58, 7lbs 7

Everything
was as pretty and as beautiful as the Lord said it would be     

Sunshine,
a beautiful blossom, a day’s miracle and God smiling at me

 

 

 

The Roads To Follow

Posted: November 2, 2010 in Best Wishes
In life there will many roads some divided into lanes. Although you can travel in the same direction you may end up at different destinations. We must learn when to cross lanes when to change the method of what we are doing to remain in the true destination. Raising kids will require your all and they cannot be expected to respond to the same treatment and theories. God has your road map and once you use his guidance all days are blessed.

The Roads To Follow

 

There are
many roads and many turns on each

Heard of
the dangerous paths, and the lanes we breach

Each path
has areas thriving, and areas dying too

 

Roads
people will navigate even if things go blue

One day
you see a painful road, a hard one to take

And then
ambulate lanes carefully, avoiding a mistake

Don’t give
in to the fear, strain, stress and doubt

Survey
alternatives and leave the doubtful lanes out

 

Take the
earlier problems, turning all into your guide

Our Father
above is there, in Him everyone may confide

 

Four kids
each are paths with ways that are unique

Original
ideas, queer and of times behavior meek

Life will
offer various meanderings, your life is there

Let them
learn their way but never from their sides veer

Open your
hearts to your eager young and show the way

When you
amble these ways every day is a blessed day

The Delight of MS

Posted: October 31, 2010 in Best Wishes
Disease can overcome our bodies but doesn’t have to touch our spirit. After my illness I wrote many poems and reconnected with many friends. The things I wanted to express for a lifetime I’m only now getting the time. For many reasons I am grateful for these last, almost 6 years. 
Today I will celebrate another year to wish my friend happiness and send blessings on this special day. 

 

The Delight of MS

 

These many
things we grow to know

Have
friends we’ll meet and places we’ll go

Every
circumstance a blessing from above

 

Do things
honestly and do things with love

Earnestly
we’ll pray for things we need

Like health,
love and in life succeed

It’s a
better lesson we will come to learn

God’s will
isn’t everything that we’ll yearn

How
gracious to see the positive though they hide

To hear
another’s murmurs when they confide

 

Or to be
there to cling to them when they need you

For
support during testing times, in sorrow and pain too

 

My good friend,
I am thankful for your support all the way

So here is a prayer of thanks and blessings on your Birthday

 

 

 

Feliz Cumpleaños Mi Ami!

Posted: October 21, 2010 in Best Wishes

The year
have crept up but not piled on. My friend is first to admit to her maturity and
to sing the pride of family with her two sons and husband. But when it all
boils down to it, seeing her is like seeing someone half her age. She is a live
wire with no end to a day. I am glad I know my friend and home she has many, many years of good health.

 

¡Feliz Cumpleaños Mi Ami!

 

Fifty, is
it? Could that be true?

Even if
you still look like the gal I once knew

Like you
can run with spirit the 100 metres dash

Initiate
procedures and be done in a flash

Zealous
still, with that spring in your feet

 

Collected
thoughts and each idea complete

Used to be
that time grabbed hold at this age

Most
people slowed and turned a new page

People
retired or got tired, one of these

Life
showed them a blockage, “No through traffic please!”

Everyone
would pack up and prepare to depart

And this
age, people used to prepare to restart

Now, I
don’t know, you seem to be going on 25

Out doing
those 20 years younger with lots of drive

Sharing a
joke with others, still full of wit

 

My mind
may have deceived me but aren’t you unusually fit

I wanted
to celebrate today but it seems wrong some how

 

A person
so young at 50, and so bubbly now

May have
stopped aging, surging through life’s freeway

I wanted
to wish you today a Happy Birthday!

 

 

A Special Card for you

 

 


Happy Birthday So Cool

Posted: October 15, 2010 in Best Wishes

The month
of October is an important month to all Combermerians but it is even more
important because we celebrate your special day.

 

I am happy
to be able to extend these best wishes to you but I am sadden by the
debilitating illness that has befallen our leader. He led us through many days
at school and after school. Our friend needs us now and we extend our hands.

 

Happy Birthday So Cool

 

Sadness surrounds us my dear friend

Today we celebrate your occasion but
the pain doesn’t end

Even though I send you this file, please click here

Very many of the poems are directed to
friends everywhere

Enjoy your Birthday my friend but as
you do

Never lose sight of The
Well Wishes
I extend
to another as true
