In black and white across the screen The sun, peeks over the mountainside The bright white orb shines through the black leaves The sky in light gray And it's the dawn of a new day One picture snapped on a whim And hope is caught on the horizon The camera blinks in time with perfection Emotion caught on a breeze A view into the soul of the man behind the moment There is peace in this place A picture, a snapshot of insight An infusion of peace And the smile on the face of a stranger looking at a screen
The time in my youth that taught me about true peace Was fishing with my Papa on the coast of the East We'd get up in the morning before sunrise Papa would wake me with sparkle in his eyes I'd jump down from the bunk bed When my feet hit the floor Smells of Grandma's hickory bacon would rush to my head She would wrap the bacon up in a biscuit and pack it to go I'd grab the bag of bread crumbs we'd been saving for the seagulls, to strew We'd pile it all in the SUV The poles clasped firm on the front bumper Papa's clever bumper holder made of PVC I can smell the salt air so clear Papa and Grandma are always with me Ahh, that is true tranquility!!!
THE GOOD OLE DAYS PEACE IN MY HEART THAT WILL NEVER DEPART put this on a notch above the daily fluff for Father's day Love you Papa Angel, to stay!!
