MY PRETTY LITTLE PAL
(circa 1966)

When one is young and oh so small
It feels real good to tug on one's little pal
And as we struggle to be so tall
And we search and search for our little pal
We then get older and oh so wiser
That we forget our search for our little pal
Grey hair, wrinkling skin, and aching bones
Become our new disguise
And would you know it -- like one so very small
I tug on my pretty little pal


GILDA
(circa 1996)

Gilda is her name, a rare and unusual name
And yet her very name set her apart
It is not common nor does it echo another's call
She stands alone in vivid contrast to all around her
Yes, Gilda is her name

Serene, loving, caring throughout her life
Each breath coupled to a delightful and lovely smile
A heart full of love and sweet compassion
Always able to see beyond each day's travails
Yes, Gilda is her name

And now I see her in the fullness of her life
Where years have passed each on our own paths
Now brought together like two birds from different nests
To share the nest of love in the twilight of our years
Yes, Gilda is her name


GILDA 86

It wasn't long ago that I was six
When I played many games with jumping ropes
Hop, skip, jump, along with jacks, checkers, and monopoly
And with my dolls it seemed like an endless world of joy
But here I am at eighty six longing and wondering
Whether the day would come that i again might play "pick up sticks"


STEVIE'S HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO HIS MA

Happy birthday Ma ----------- how Many times have I said that?
So many times I've said Ma ---- Ma ---- Ma ---- Ma
Do this, do that , say this, say that , help me Ma
Over and over again that simple word Ma ---- Ma ---- Ma ---- Ma
Happy Birthday Ma ---- how Many times have I said that Ma
every day that goes by I've said Ma ---- Ma ---- Ma ---- Ma
So Mom, dear Mom, my Mom ---- Happy Birthday Ma
And Mom I love to say I love you my Ma ---- Ma ---- Ma ---- Ma
