Silver Lining

Poem By David Harris

They say every cloud
has a silver lining
and every true friend
a heart of gold.

In some moments
of distress,
we do not often see
what is there before our eyes.

Our judgement is clouded
and our worries conceal
what others try to give us
in hope and unconditional love.

The silver lining in our friends
is not always visible
and sometimes we are too blind
to see it there.

As The Years Pass Along

When the snow is gone,
we will remember this winter
for a long time to come.
We will remember being told not to go to work,

Just Beyond The Sunset

Just beyond the sunset
Someone waits for me
Just beyond the sunset
Lies my destiny

If I Ruled The World

If I ruled the world,
many changes I would make.
It would be required
that happiness shone

My Dreams

My dreams sail through uncharted waters
looking for a place to land.
A place to become fertile
so I can touch them with my hand.

A Caring Heart

A caring heart will never stray
even when its owner has to go away.
It will think of its happy home
dismissing thoughts of wanting to roam.


As each year begins to close,
we reflect over the passing one
remembering the highlights
along with the year’s woes.
