Sweet September

For most people September signifies the end of summer. Each season has a beauty all its own. Let’s enjoy all seasons.

Below is a poem I wrote for a wonderful couple at our church who had celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. I have also included a poem written for a grandmother, since Grandparent’s Day is in September. Lastly, I have shared a poem I wrote for my nephew, TJ, years ago for his birthday, which is in September.

Jack & Nellie

The years go by so very fast.
Has it been 60 years
Since you pledged to love each other
Through good times and through tears?

You’ve built a home filled with love
And laughter all around;
A Christian home, a happy home
Where all felt safe and sound.

You’ve cared so much for all your kids.
You’d always freely give.
You both set great examples
Of the way that they should live.

You’ve held each other’s hand
Through very dreadful days.
Your faith is both so very strong.
Knowing God will lead the way.

You’re an inspiration to us,
Jack and Nellie Pate;
Two very special people
God knew would be soul mates.

Grandmother

You’ve always been right there for me
Right from the very start.
I always knew you loved me
From the bottom of your heart.

When I was small you’d pick me up
And put me on your knee.
You could always make it better
And always comfort me.

You encouraged me no matter what
To do my very best.
With you I could do no wrong,
And I stood above the rest.

Some say you were harder
On your kids back in those days.
All I know is I can count on you
No matter come what may.

TJ

Time is flying by us.
I can’t believe it’s true.
Sixteen years go by so fast,
And time catches up with you.

I remember a miracle child,
Who could hardly breathe;
Who fought as hard as he possibly could.
Because the world he wanted to see.

I remember a little baby
With a machine on his chest.
He’d just pull it off and laugh.
We never knew what might be next.

I remember a little boy
Going off to school.
He always came home filthy,
And he never tied his shoes.

And now – we have a teenager
With those sneaky, big, wide eyes;
Who’s always been so kind to me.
He’s a blessing in disguise.

No one could ever take your place.
You’re one of a kind—you see;
And no mater how old you are,
You’ll always be a miracle to me.
