MY WISH FOR YOU


My wish for you 
Is that this life becomes
All that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big,
Your worries stay small,
You never need to carry
More than you can hold,
And while you're out
There gettin' where you're
Getting to, I hope you
Know somebody loves you
And wants the same
Things too.

(A lovely poem and a pretty redbud tree that belongs to a neighbor but overhangs into our back garden.  Something that I am very happy for it to do, because as I was walking around, I was able to take a photo of those pretty blooms.)

  9. Beautiful verse. We had a neighbour in South Africa that had a massive avocado tree, half of which was on our side of the fence. We had avos all year round :-) Miss it now. Take care, Diane

  10. Happy spring to you, Denise! What a wonderful poem and beautiful spring flowers. We just returned from Europe a couple of weeks ago. We met a fabulous English couple on our Rhine riverboat trip and loved learning more about England.

  11. Hello, Denise.
    What a beautiful poem dedicated to temperance and hope.
    The beautiful picture depicts the flowers of a tree with a curious name: Judas Tree. (Cercis siliquastrum).

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
