To Wally...

To Wally…


There’s someone I know,

 who’s happy and jolly.

This “someone” I know,

 we all call; “Wally.”


Throughout life, he’s been

thoughtful and kind.

People like him are hard to find!


I know that he’s had many

 trials in the past.

But to his God. 

 He’s “holding on fast…”


Even though family’s relationships

 can cause a strain…

I’ve never heard him once

 grumble or complain.


Instead of focusing on

the things he lost…

He’s decided to focus on the cross!


I’m thankful to Jesus my

mother married him…

He’s very kind to her and

 she’s happy within!


So, “thanks Wally!” For the times

 you’ve “come through.”

This world’s a better place,

 with people like YOU!


And thanks be to Jesus for

 your heartfelt smile.

Spending time with you has

 made it worth the while!


May your son and daughters

 also be blessed!

The father God gave them,

is one of the best!


And to those who don’t know you.

 I can only say…

Wait to you meet him!

 He’ll brighten your day!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
