A matter of trust

You counted on me, to get the job done.
You saw what I did, I made it look fun.
With so much energy, I brought to the place.
I made a difference, with a smile on my face.
You saw that I cared, and I became your friend.
I built that trust and made things amend.
But nestled in my mind, was the lies they said.
I told you the truth, but you believed them instead.
So the trust didn't last and the truth you never knew.
You saw all the trouble, but the lies were not true.
The choice you made, you didn't have to do.
But you let me go, when I was there for you.
Maybe someday soon, we'll be friends again.
Put the past behind and let the trust begin.
I can always wonder, what might have been.

On your mark, get set... Read

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 on hand,
 for the summer read.
He's looking for books,
 that he's going to need.
With so much to choose,
he couldn't pick just one.
He picked out twenty,
and he wasn't done.
Buddy found a awesome book,
on a spine tingling tale.
A non-fiction book,
about a mammoth whale.
He read a tearful story,
on a long lost dog.
And a fact filled book,
on a slimy little frog.
On your mark, get set, read,
is the summer's reading plan.
So visit your local library,
and sign-up when you can.
Bring along all your friends,
and take a good look.
There is a great selection,
so check out a book.

The word " Can't"

I said the words I can't,
not once but countless more.
When you think about it,
you said those words before.
The thoughts we hold,
are from words we heard.
Nothing is achieved,
when it's a negative word.
The moment you say I can't,
those two words take you down.
It never lifts you up,
or turn things around.
It may become a habit,
and even sometimes a chant.
But we should never ever say,
the two words, I can't.

Mother's Day Poem

She brings you hope,
in place of fear.
She brings you light,
to make it clear.
She shows you love,
with praise and cheers.
She lifts your heart,
and wipes the tears.
She makes you laugh,
when you're feeling sad.
She cares for you,
when life looks bad.
With a loving heart,
and a friendly smile.
She makes you feel,
it was all worthwhile.
In times of trouble,
she comes to you.
She calms you down,
and helps you through.
So whatever the need,
you will always find.
You have a mother,
who is helpful and kind.
