Jar of Hope

And so I look on, wondering and in a daze

Dazzled by your presence which I think is so enchanting


Forgive me if I may not be paying attention

My mind is still trying to grasp the reality of you

I hold on to myself, making sure I still am grounded

For I know once I float away

I will be falling


I took notice and am hoping you will too

The sound of your name as I call it

Is music to my ears


I always seem to have a jar full of hope

In the end it gets broken

Still, here I am in a daze and dazzled by you

The Girl Who Stole The Cookie Jar

The girl who stole the cookie jar took hold of the chocolates too.

The candies, the pastries and the cola coated cakes

have been taken as well.

The doughnuts have been held hostage,

the eggs, spam, ham and the sausages…..

…have all gone, with the wind.

Alas! The honey bread, the jellybean, have been taken too.

Oh that girl! That mischievous girl!

She’ll be stealing more cookie jars once I’m done baking

Cross My Heart

I did not take it, I swear

You can check my pockets

My hands, even behind my ears

You can check under the table or the light sockets

I did not take it, I tell you


You can check under the stairs

Or even on my bed

Try near the chairs

Or even the shed

You won’t see it on me ’cause I didn’t take it


I did not take the cookie from the cookie jar

I swear, cross my heart

I found it on the plate

And now it’s in my stomach
