My Best Friend

Many things come to mind,
when I think of you.
An angel you are,
beautiful and friendly too.
A rare precious jewel,
who greets me with her smile.
Plus a caring heart
that makes my life worthwhile.
My mind is filled with joy
that you may not see.
Only God knows
how much you mean to me.
The angels in heaven
have witnessed first hand.
When God blessed me
with my best friend.

You live, dream and think,
on what you want to be.
You choose, plan and try,
for the goal you want to see.
With past, present and future,
in time will really show.
Through work, sweat and tears,
you reach for your goal.
You love, help and share,
the only way to live.
With kindness, care and aid,
the way you ought to give.
You greet, console and comfort,
with the words you impart.
You call, write and visit,
you open up your heart.
You laugh, joke and chuckle,
and cheer the one whose sad.
You smile, hug and hold,
when things go bad.
With words, prayer and praise,
you help someone through.
With love, care and share,
the way you ought to do.
You learn, know and teach,
you try to help each day.
To live, laugh and love,
and give your best today.

Where is Frank ?

Hank wanted to thank
his best friend Frank
for the piggy bank.
But where is he?
Where could Frank be?
Hank went to the park
and asked his friend Mark.
"I think, he's at the gym."
He was talking with Tim
Tim shook his head
"Maybe he's with Ted."
"I have no clue,
you can ask Sue."
Hank checked it all.
He even asked Paul.
"But where is he?"
Where could Frank be?
Hank decided to turn back.
That's when  he asked Jack.
"He's not over here."
"He could be anywhere."
"Did you check the mall?"
"He might be with Saul."
"I am so sorry, Hank."
I have not seen Frank?
"But don't you worry."
"You can ask, Murray."
This story has a happy end.
Because Hank found is friend.
So there goes Hank.
Carrying his piggy bank.
Off to see his friend Frank
Who's at the bank.

Hank's Little Poem

Sometimes I just want to pray.
Not knowing what to say.
Except the tears I want to cry.
And for you to be at my side.
Sometimes I just want to pray.
With the words I want to say.
The moment I want to see.
When you're there to hold me.
Sometimes I just want to pray.
With the words I need to say.
For you to answer this plea.
The words of please help me.

Let's Make Them Smile

Let's take a walk, across the street.
Cheer them up, when you meet.
Wear a smile, like the morning sun.
Show the whole world, how it's done.
Then wave your hand in the air.
Show the people everywhere.
That you are there to say Hi.
And smile, when you're passing by.
Lend a hand, whenever you can.
Treat them all, like a friend.
You will find, it's really true.
It's the right thing to do.

My Dad

For all the walks, chats and pierogi we made.
For bingo, probe and other games we played.
For all the songs we sang and the times we prayed.
I hold on to the memories.
Trips to the park, festivals and visits to the zoo.
For the times at the library and Sundays at church too.
For all the special holidays I spent with you.
I hold on to the memories.
We watched TV together and played connect four.
Outings at the party and shopping at a store.
We dug up a garden, and so much more,
I hold on  to the memories.

Libraries Rock

Buddy is so excited, to tell everyone.
He's going to the library, to have some fun.
He discovered a place, where you can always find.
A variety of books, that will captivate your mind.
Buddy is also on hand, for the summer read.
He's looking for books, he's going to need.
With so much to choose, he couldn't pick just one.
He picked up twenty and he wasn't done.
Buddy found an awesome book, on a spine tingling tale.
And a non fiction book, about a mammoth whale.
He read a tearful book, on a long lost dog.
And a fact filled book on a slimy little frog.
Libraries Rock is the summer reading plan.
So visit your local library and sign up when you can.
 Bring along all your  friends and take a good look.
There's a great selection, so check out a book.

Class of 2018

We take the time, to reflect on the past.
We cherish the moments and wish it would last.
Those times we shared, in our work and play.
The many memories we have, of each school day.
From dawn to sunset, it was so much fun.
The joy of success, in the work we've done.
Now we look forward, to the new road we take.
And all the big plans, we want to make.
We reach for our dreams and seek new friends.
We take on challenges, whatever life may send. 
With a new set of goals, it's time to proceed.
We give our best and know we'll succeed.

She brings you hope, in place of fear.
She brings you light, to make it clear.
She brings you love, praise and cheers.
She lifts you up and wipes the tears.

She takes care of you, when life looks bad.
With a loving heart, and a caring smile.
She makes you feel, it's all worthwhile.
In times of trouble, she comes to you.
No matter what it is, she helps you through.
So whatever you need, you will always find.
You have a mother, who is helpful and kind.

Which Book?

Toby picked up six books from the library.
He placed the books on his desk.
He sat down and wondered which book to read first.
Suddenly, the first book stood up.
"Pick me!" shouted Book one.
"Look inside, it's full of adventure."
Toby heard another voice.
He looked up and noticed Book two edged forward.
"Don't listen to him," Book two replied.
"My book is funny, you'll laugh out loud."
The third book jumped up and came forward.
"Read me," cried Book three. 
"My book is about dinosaurs."
"Wait a minute," Book four hollered.
"My book is better," Book four proclaimed.
"You can read about your favorite animals.
The Fifth book stepped forward.
"Examine mine," Book five exclaimed.
"I's about your favorite hero."
The Sixth book took his turn.
"Don't forget about me," Book six replied.
"This book is written by your favorite author."
