The Icing on the Cake


Color me purple

Blow me away

Whisk me up

Make me sway


Nice and light

And oh-so-bright

Mildly sweet

That’s just about right!


Generously now

Slather me on

Smoothen me up

Till the edges are gone


And now its time

For a bit of design

Understated, underplayed

And yet so divine


Add a touch

Of red and blue

Decorate me with

Some candy too!


Look at me now

I’m all set!

So creamy and pretty

But don’t eat me just yet!


Take a picture

To remember me by

Alright now, dig in

And let me hear you sigh!!


The Unwanted Visitor!


Oh, I see you’re back again!

Stop following me around, my friend

Haven’t we talked about this before?

You still don’t get it, you’re dense to the core!


There you sit, devising ways to ensnare me,

Go away, you don’t scare me!

Go and camp on someone else’ floor

You’re not welcome here anymore!


You’re a smooth operator, I know you are

I hate to admit it, but you do have some power

Once you’ve arrived, its hard to make you leave

I would talk about manners, but you don’t have any, I believe!


I despise your wicked, underhanded ways

How you sneak up undetected, avoiding my gaze!

But I’m smarter than you, I’ll have you know!

You’d better leave quietly, or I’ll make you go.


Don’t force me to run and throw you off my trail

‘Cos I’m sure that will really tip the scale

And if that doesn’t work, I can hop and skip

Then lets see how you manage to keep your grip!


Begone!!! You worthless load of extra pounds!

I don’t want to see you around!

Make no trouble and I’ll be nice

Else I’ll be forced to EXERCISE!!

No Worries!!


Oh my dear Worrier

Stay still for a moment please!

You’re right at Happiness’ door

Where did you lose the keys??


I try to quell your worries

As best as I can

But you’re always a step ahead of me

No matter how well I plan!!


You cook up your worries much faster

Than I can slew them down!

Oh you bothersome little pest

They ought to gift you a crown!!


Your talents know no bounds, I say

You can see what the future holds

And while your visions seldom come true

You worry yourself into dark holes!


And surely, oh but surely

You’re a magician too!

How else would you conjure them

Out of thin air, the way you do?!?


You’re forever doubled over

With the troubles of this world

One harmless prod and I’m sure

You’ll cry like a little girl!


For once, won’t you listen to me

And shed the extra weight?

Try, come on, try harder now

I know its not too late!


Take out the key and open that door

Happiness awaits!

You’ll see how beautiful the world really is

Once you step in through the gates!!

Dream a Dream


Let sleep cast a spell

As I close my eyes tonight

Let no one disturb me

Until the morning light


Let me lay aside my fears

And my worries of the day

As I lose myself in a dream

And go to a land far away


A land that has no boundaries

Where wishes do come true

Where no prayer goes unanswered

Where the sky is bright and blue


For there are so many things I wanted

That I did never get

Though that’s okay ‘cos I know

God gave me what was best


So let me dream of things that never were

And may never even be

If only in a dream, let me live

My sweetest fantasy


Let me sleep like a child

As I dream a dream tonight

Let no one wake me up

Until the sun is shining bright
