Aging With Grace

Poem By Francis Duggan

One can say of her she is aging with grace
With anti aging cream she does not hide the time wrinkles on her face
And she does not use hair dye for to cover her gray
One of the few who does age in the natural way
Quite attractive to look at as most would agree
For a widowed grandmother of seventy three
An attractive looking woman of her one can say
She looks well for her years her hair a natural gray
Quite a charming person and free of conceit
One who is always a pleasure for to meet
She is one i see often though not every day
And about her she does have a beautiful way
One of the rare few who have the inner glow
Nice people are always a pleasure to know.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
