SEVEN PENNIES
June 8 2009

I found seven pennies, sent from Heaven above,
seven pennies, ~ each filled with love.
They reminded me of my grandmother,
who had a heart of made out of gold.
No matter what I did, no matter the road I took,
Each was just a lesson, that was her outlook.
Each time she scrubbed a floor, or cooked a pot of beans,
she put her all into it, she did it by every means.
She never used a switch, or said “I told you so”
She just looked at you and said, “You did it, now be bold.
Live your life with all you’ve got, reach for that pot of gold.”
Her only dream, her only wish, was that I should know,
that writing was a way, for the world to be told,
To never put your dreams on hold.
Live your life from day to day,
And do it ~ in your very own way.
Remember to thank The Lord above,
for providing you with love,
and don’t forget to say ~ THANK YOU
FOR THE PENNIES
HE SENT YOUR WAY.
(C) A.J. Angerstein
