A Gentle Man

I know how much you miss me
I miss you that much too
I want to share a secret
That God told me is true

 I am but a whisper
Of things that are to be
So when you feel a gentle breeze
Remember that it’s me

I cannot be a rainbow
For that is just to see
I cannot be a raindrop
For tears are not for me

God promised me a future
Of beauty, joy and peace
So when your cheek is gently kissed
It’s me and not the breeze

So keep your thoughts on heaven
And do all that you can
To guide your precious family
And be a gentle man

For strength is not in anger
But in the words of peace
It takes a strength unknown to man
To fall upon your knees

And ask your God for guidance
And for a helping hand
It is the Badge of Honor
Of a truly gentle man

In Tribute

As the sun comes up in the early dawn
The sleep, still in my eyes
Dew lays thick upon my path
I stop, in wonder and surprise

 I sit and watch from my vantage point
As all of nature plays her part
And I’m filled with love, hope and joy     Through my soul and in my heart

The trees all reaching for the sun
A few clouds slowly drifting by
Flowers all dancing in colors bright
And the grass bows gently to the sky

The river runs swiftly from rock to rock
Its waves all tumbling on the sand
A murmuring sound of Thank You for your touch
Comes from the Willows in the Meadow
where they stand

The breeze plays softly like a string quartet
And all the birds begin to sing
Imagine all of this on an early morning dawn
Is nature’s tribute to her King
