Morris-Angel of Friendship

Morris the Cat—2004-2019

An angel left us

Silently, went to heaven

Christmas Eve morn.

Fifteen years of her friendship

Remains in our memories.

Tanka

A tribute to our family cat who passed away this last Christmas Eve morning.

More Than A Conqueror

Victory Wreath

Come follow me, I’ll never leave you

I’ll show you all the things you must do

To win life’s battles against your foe

And gain victory no matter where you go

You’ll be more than a conqueror, it tis true

Your enemies will always pursue

But them you’ll always mightily subdue

Together them we’ll overthrow

Come follow me

You’ll never be alone, for it’ll be us two

I’ll lead and guide and bring you through

In every challenge you’ll conquer and grow

Power and victory you’ll always bestow

Everyday I’ll give you victories anew!

Come follow me

Rondeau

Based on Romans 8:37-38 and John 12:26

Have You Ever?

Sailing ship on calm water

Have you ever been told “No!”

Stopped when you wanted to go

Denied passage within

Rejected for the color of your skin

Refuted for something you’ve said

Sought friendship but were scorned instead

Vetoed for taking a stand

Mocked for the goals you’ve planned

Nothing but bills in the mail

Everything you try seems to fail

You’re not alone my friend

I’ve gone round and round that bend

Someday our ships will come in

Someday it’ll be our turn to win!

Rhyme

“Never, Ever, Give Up!”
