A Silly Rhyme To Pass The Time
I think I'll write a silly rhyme
To help me pass away the time...
I see no fireflies tonight,
Neither stars nor moon are in sight.
Darkness is all I see and
Scary shadows hiding in trees.
The bumble bees have ceased to fly,
There are no rainbows in the sky...
The birds sing no melody,
Perhaps they are lonesome just
Like me and yearn for tomorrow
To welcome you home,
I long to hear your voice on the telephone.
The day has been busy in spite of my
At least today, it isn't raining.
(at nursing home with story hour children to entertain elderly)
The old folks laughed and clapped their hands,
They thought the children's singing was
The children sang, 'Jesus loves me' and the
'Alphabet Song' in the round, and
Told the story of the little mouse whose family
Could not be found...but when the story 'Whose Mouse Are You'
Ended, the little mouse they all befriended...
They gather around him because they loved him so,
But soon we all had to go.
Now my dear, I am just killing time,
Until you are in these arms of mine.
Come on Monday!
Rush in Tuesday!
Oh, No! Wednesday!
What should I do? Can hardly wait
To put my eyes on you!
So this silly thing is coming to an end,
But I'm so glad you are my lover, my friend,
My buddy, my pal, and I am
Very happy to be your
