"O" is for.....

Jenny Matlock

As the year continues into seasons colder
I find myself reflecting on being a decade OLDER
Has the first forty years made me tame or bolder
Did God give me all the weight I could shoulder

OLDER and wiser the saying goes they say
So I've grown to live my life day by day
While the first two decades I lived to play
these last two have made me the man today

As I grow OLDER the past becomes reflected
Were decisions made right and how my life's affected
Do I feel elated or feel alone and dejected
Have I done enough to leave a stamp detected

Well these last forty years have made me OLDER
I find myself not tame but bolder
In beliefs held dear I am proud to shoulder
As the year continues to seasons colder.

"N" is for...

Jenny Matlock

NOW that fat tuesday's gone and begins the season of lent
I can think of NOTHING that i'd give up or want to forget
I have lived my life as I did with voluminous lament
But who can say they have lived life without regret?

What I have done and I have been through
Has lead my on a crooked path straight back to you.
NOTHING in my life has ever came with ease
from birth until NOW fighting from on my knees.

I thank you God for all that I have been through
From the military to the monster to things anew
I am thankful for the life you've gave to me
From parents to three sons to Melanie.

Without my past there would be NO NOW
So why would I regret the way or how
I got to where I am in my life today
If something wasn't done then who's to say?

I thank you lord for all you have done
for NOT just me but for everyone
For keeping a watchful eye from high above
I know that it all was done with love.

So again I say this for lent and regrets
I give good wishes to all who want to forget
For there is NOTHING in my life I want to give away
for my choices are what made me the man I am today.

"M" is for.....

Jenny Matlock

My girlfriend is extraordinary to me
Especially the world and how it she sees
Loving her completely comes to me so easily
Absolutely honestly overwhelmingly
Never compromising herself or asking it of me
I adore her for her quirks and little bits of insanity
Exactly the perfect beautiful MELANIE!!

"L" is for...

Jenny Matlock

As we continue on our mutual quest
to match word to letter that fits best.
A word we used to hold dear in years past
has finally come to my mind at last.

A word that once was reserved for royalty
I speak of course of the word LOYALTY.
It may mean to some of us the same
but to most tis only a word and concept lame.

Oh how I worry how times have changed
from when LOYALTY held firm when once engaged.
To now it is only used looking into one's face
well behind one's back deceit is replaced.

It all saddens heart to see the growth of our disgrace
to talk behind back of friends we call to their face.
I fear in whole for the future of the human race
for values once held dear are now erased.

Perhaps by chance my older eyes do not quite see
that there are still among us who believe in LOYALTY.
It's concept can not die if inside of you and me
LOYALTY to God, country, and Family.

"K" is for....

Jenny Matlock

In our crazy Kaleidoscope life and monkey cage of house and home
Where there is always some sort of drama and you never find yourself alone.
There is a force to be reckoned with, but never taken lightly
I speak of course of the one and only, Karma the almighty.

At times she will drive you mad, to the edge of inner rage
other times you can control her, like a whirlwind in a cage.
At times she's just too funny, to simply just ignore
and other times she's so cute, and easy to adore.

Karma has more then once has bit me, I believe only by mistake
and she has always been quick to grab whatever she can take.
For like the force she was named after, it's simple for her mood to switch
for she's only a two year old puppy who can be good,or quite the little........
