Poem By Keri Jopplin

You made me what I am today courage at its best
You wanted me to know no fear, a cut above the rest!
Not only did I master that, I've thrown in loyality too;
Look past my eyes & into my soul, you know I'd die for you.

I'll guard your kids, I'll watch your house,
Your praise will be my crown, ask what you will;
I'll do my best, I'll even be your clown.
But some of you don't like me,

I'm sure I don't know why?
The only thing I'm guilty of;
is courage, love & try.

But still they want me to go,
They want my breed to end.
Will I see you sitting idly by;
You, whom called me friend?

You made me what I am today;
You never saw me waiver...
I've done my best to keep you safe,
Won't you please return the favor?

Snow Whispers

She dances upon snow gone lost in her dreams,
Wiggles turn to giggles as she makes angel wings.
Wishing upon stars under beams of the moon,
She hums her favorite, a lost & forgotton tune;


Do I dare approach passion with loaded gun?
Hoping to hear your heart, to taste your tongue?

Be fair I say, hearts mercies are tender, unfeigned.

Happy Birthday Momma

I think of you often a hundred times a day,
To the Lord I ask, for my momma I pray;
No more suffering in Heaven you lay,
You would have been older sixty-two today.

Thank You

Thank you for the good times,
And days you fill with pleasure.
Thank you for fond memories;
And for feelings I'll always treasure.


Sweet dreams and memories of days long gone; .
Remembering my life and loves gone wrong.
I can't go back there's so much to replace,
My dreams become reality that's hard to face.

Cupid's Arrow

You''ve unlocked my heart and kept the key;
I'm unable to breath, unable to flee.
You've showed me love, gave my heart a home
Grateful to you, I'm no longer alone
