The Sweetest Kiss

HEAVEN IN A CHILD

I caught a glimpse of Heaven today
When a little child of three
Danced around my flower beds
With a look of blissful glee

I heard a bit of Heaven today
When she giggled while at play
Sounds I’ll carry in my heart
Forever and a day

I felt a bit of Heaven today
When she wooed me with her charms . . .
The sweetest kiss upon my cheek
And a hug from little arms

There’s Heaven in a little child
And you can see it, too
Just watch them with an open heart
That’s all you need to do

KILLER

Killer’s what we call our hound,
But he betrays his name …
While serving as a guard dog
He greets them all, the same.

All comers to our big front door
Are greeted with a kiss,
Then he bellies-up for a rub
With a grand look of bliss.

He’s as gentle as a kitten
And wouldn’t harm a fly.
If I command, “Go get ’em, dog!”,
He collapses with a sigh.

And if he feels I’m threatened,
He’ll take a great big breath,
And knock them down with his big paws,
Then slobber them to death.

A deep Abiding love

A MOMENT LONG AWAITED

He came to me last night
to tell me he was sorry.
As he held me close
he kissed away my tears,
and I could feel his heart
beating in harmony with my own.
He whispered assurances
of undying love,
and I whispered mine.
Then from out of nowhere
came the soft strains
of our favorite song,
and we danced as one,
lost in deep abiding love;
a moment long awaited.

 And then . . . I awakened.

Our old hound dog

         OLD HOUN’

 

Old Houn’ is what we call our dog.

He answers to that name.

He’s supposed to be a watchdog,

But treats everyone the same.

 

Whoever comes to our front door

Is greeted with a kiss,

Then he’ll belly-up for a rub,

With a grand look of bliss.

 

He mothers orphaned kittens,

For which he baby-sits,

Though his look of total boredom

Belies his love of it.

Tete a Tete

               GOSSIP

 

“You know I never gossip, Dear,

But I’m compelled to tell you this,

I saw your husband steal a kiss!”

 

                .   .   .

 

“Well, let me make this very clear,

I hate to disappoint you, Miss,

But that sweet lady was his Sis!”

       THE ELUSIVE KISS

 

The fellow just wanted to smooch,

   But his breath smelled strongly of “hootch”.

      His girl, filled with dread,

      Lifted dog Fido’s head

And he ended up kissing the pooch.
