I tried for the last couple of days to come up with a "perfect" Easter poem. Then I realized she was right in front of me. My granddaughter, Jaycie, just celebrated her second birthday. A true miracle! Born with a bad liver, she was placed on the national waiting list. At six months of age, she was given the gift of life, with a liver transplant. This is the season of renewal and rebirth, and for this poet, she is the perfect example of Easter.
Got your back pack,
Gonna fill that sack.
Gonna fill your trunk,
In your brand new car.
All those gifts,
Will reach to the stars.
Happy Birthday, Jaycie,
Two years old,
As happy as can be.
You fill us with smiles,
And tears of joy.
We'll spend time together,
Playing with all your new toys.
Mom and Dad,
Aunts and Uncles,
Wanting to spend time with you.
We know that you've been blessed,
Protected by angels,
With their gentle caress.
You've kept everyone busy.
All your energy,
Running in circles,
Making everyone dizzy.
We've enjoyed your hugs,
For the past two years.
We rejoice today,
Filled with happiness,
The angels are singing your song.
Today, we're all singing along.
What the future holds,
We can not say,
But never forget,
We love you,
Each and everyday.

|yes a lovely poetic tribute Dave, super, enjoyed. Anyway, on one of my poems you mentioned not avoiding pain and suffering, I might have misunderstood what you were implicating, but it is in my experience to try and avoid pain and suffering as much as possible. We do not have to think about going through pain and suffering to save us later.
To point is to avoid as much as possible through our actions. Anyway there so much of it we don't have to concentrate on it, only concentrate on avoiding. G

|ooooo, I can feel this one, Dave!! So much to be thankful for that it fair makes your heart just BURST! So much also to be aware of and NEVER take for granted. Life surely is such a precious gift and never more so than if we might lose it - or the ones we love. Like the old hymn... "Count your blessings, name them one by one" - everyday!! You remind us here to do just that, and I for one am truly thankful. LOL Kate xx|

What a great easter poem.
Funny how if one does not think. (Which is my main asset) How easy a gem just-pops- into one head.
Have fun fun fun. And heaps of laughter.
