Oooh La La!
Today is my “combination” day – it’s my poem day and it’s also Thankful Thursday so I am doing BOTH in this one post!
If you have written a poem to join me on Poetic Thursday, you can either post it in my comments so the universe can see it OR, post your blog link and say you have a poem posted there – we will hop over and read it FOR SURE! Write a poem for someone today – I promise you will make them VERY happy if you do!
First though is my poem of the week. Today we’re celebrating the letter “W” in the alphabet. You know I thought of a million things I could write about that start with the letter “W” but because lately I’m having “old guy” health issues and think a lot about my future, I settled on this poem to share with you – my dear friends.
By Sammy Kimmell, 11/17/16
My Daddy flies his plane up in the sky
Where birds and planes and angels fly
In common they all have just one thing
They fly through the sky using their “wings”.
When I was a kitten all tiny and new
The years up ahead were abundant – not few
With age came wisdom about many things
Like the eventual day when I’d get my wings.
Through all the years I’ve not once feared the day
When my guardian angel kitty would come to me and say…
“Dear Sam you have lived a long life full of love
now we want you to come join us at the Bridge up above.
Your work here on earth as companion and friend
Has been perfectly grand but soon it will end.
We have work for you there – and one day when you’re ready,
You’ll come back to Mother Earth for another life, strong and steady.
Your wings they await you – they’re beautiful – made of gold
They will bring you good health, you’ll be young again, not old.
When your time it is here, I will be by your side…..
From this earthly life, you will rise and you will glide
To the Rainbow Bridge we’ll go and be safe as can be
Watching over all your friends and your Earth family.
From this day forward until your time has come,
I’ll be right by your side until your last day is done.”
Dear friends, I hope this poem doesn’t make you SAD……………..because we all know that our time will come and we will go to the Bridge and see all our friends we’ve had to say farewell to for so many years. I don’t intend to go soon but you never really know……….and I wanted all of you to know how I feel about that. Life is GOOD……live every minute of it! I sure intend to…..
Next week we will move on to a REAL toughie – the letter “X”! EEEEEEEEEK! Talk about a challenge!
For the second part of today’s post, I will tell you this thing that I am thankful for…………………..I’m thankful for my Mom and Dad – I could not have been adopted from the shelter almost 17 years ago by more loving and caring humans – NO WAY……..I’m living a dream life…………and I love all of my friends and every single day I’m here, I celebrate it. If you’d like to share what you’re THANKFUL for, just visit Brian’s blog by clicking HERE and join the hop today!
