Once Upon A Rhyme
~Marge Tindal~

In a faraway kingdom by the sea
a mysterious thing happened to me.
A vision so rare it left me bereft,
clinging to life on bended knee, I wept.

Lying before me in a wondrous state,
the beauty of life like a thief of late.
Never before did I happen to see
the beauty of life staring back at me.

At my wits end, coming to understand
the sum total of life lay in my hands.
A vision so bold it caused me to see
life is what I make of little o' me.

So completely it occurred in a flash
the reason in my life for one last dash.
Ever mindful of life's circumstance met,
what I am tomorrow is not told yet.

Always reminded of the treasures held
in the palm of my hand, I know them well.
Living and loving each day I am blessed.
When God calls my name, I have passed the test.

God, the puppeteer, I the puppet played
He holds the strings to the life I have made.

If living in loving is the test
then you are one of the very best!

You are so kind and thoughtful.
It's no wonder I love you.
Thank you.

And you, sweet man, are a sweetheart.
Thank you.

Eloise~
Thank you for that.

No secrets, love.
He sends the thoughts I pen.
Probably my one true Muse.

Marge...

You may be a puppet played
But with the talent you've displayed
While being here....I'll tell you what
A little  dummy you are not!
