When love touched you
And happiness enters your heart
Know everlasting joy



My Self Bought Gift Of Love


For once in my life

I feel like a princess

My strive when I drive

Is to stay alive

I feel like Lady Diana

I struck a bargain

I got myself a new set of wheels

Not brand new…NO

Though second hand

Still in very, very  good shape

Something… hmmmm…like me

Old but not cold

Bold though not beautiful

Straight to the point

Within my joint

My own found fun

I wanted to take

My Sunshine for a drive

But he said


A Merc???

Now you really do have me confused

Lady Diana

The End

My Twin Bro would love it. He's a Merc freak--has owned four of em. All used but immaculate. Also drove a Couger--a real Merc. Don't commit sewerpipe in it, Di.

Don't lsten to Steve, Tinka. After all he is just a man, and has to have everything on the left side of the car. That way men don't get confused...giggle. I love this poem Tinka, it is really too funny, especialy the last line. Thank you too, for dedicating this the world's Princess Diana. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, maybe too stubborn for my own good, joy to the world peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your always sad and very terrified little sister, Barbie
