Love is a feeling of trust
trust is a feeling of faith
faith is a feeling of security
security is a feeling of being safe
and being safe is learned as a child
these feelings given freely to a child
will someday return to you tenfold


Where are the stars?

The moon was so far away
catching the stars and smiling with every bite
They were so very tasty
so out of sight
It didn`t take long
The sky turned to black
so be very careful
if tempted to eat every bite
think of the moon
oh what a sight
before he ate all the stars
and turned himself white


(in memory of my DaD)
(I gave this to my Dad for father's day on June 16th 1991)


Today is Father's day
As I feel my heart swell with love
I thank God for the
Best Daddy in the world
I remember as a child,
a Daddy that got me to church every Sunday;
Falling to sleep many a night
with him strumming his guitar
and lifting his voice in song.
Daddy is older now,
He can't do all the things he used to;
But you can be sure these memories
shall be with me for every Fathers Day
until the end of time.

"Daddy", Thanks for the most precious memories
a little girl could ever have.
I will treasure them forever,
I love you and God loves you too,
(Daddy's little girl)



in memory of my Brother, Robert Patrick Collins,sr



The tree was so handsome
as it stood so straight and tall
and standing in it's shadow
was another tree, graceful and small

Soon they grew together
Their beauty seen by all
The loving limbs were stretching
and sheltered seeds began to fall

A tiny tree was waiting
to greet the seedlings below
for the family would be completed
with two more in a row

Soon stormy clouds gathered
the graceful tree began to weep
for the handsome tree was leaning
its strength began to seep

Three little trees were alone now
with the graceful tree so small
but with a lot of courage
it became strong for them all

The little trees are big now
with seedlings of their own
and a Handsome Tree in heaven
lovingly prepares a place
called Home



(to my love,my hubby,Philip)

I loved you even before I knew you
My heart knew you were out there
even before I knew your name
Now that I have found you
Can put my arms around you
Life will never be the same
You are the one.....You are My Love, I will Love You "forever"


Happy Birthday Mama

In memory of Annie Ruth Barnhill Collins,my Mother

Today is your birthday
The first since you went away
I know you are with Bobby & Daddy
Oh, How happy you must be today

I should be glad you are in heaven
But, Your gentle touch I do miss
There are times, I feel you with me
And on my face a tender kiss

At your house, I gathered some flowers
And placed them on your grave
They always remind me of you
And the kind of home, you and Daddy made

I love you Mama, Happy Birthday

I was Looking

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator,
and I wanted to paint another one.
When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you feed a stray cat,
and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.
When you thought I wasn't looking,
I heard you say a prayer, and I believed there is a God that I could always talk to.
When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw tears come from your eyes,
and I learned that sometimes things hurt,
but it is ok to cry.
When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw that you cared
and I wanted to be everything that I could be.
When you thought I wasn't looking,
I looked...and wanted to say thanks for
all the things I saw....When you thought I wasn't looking
