“If Time and Money….” (Revised) copyright 2011 John J. Rigo
 

If Time and Money were no object.

I would string a row of hearts,

signed individually with the words,

“I Love You,”

to go around the world.

If Time and Money were no object.

I would etch your name on the highest mountain peak,

for all to see in declaring my love for you.

If Time and Money were no object.

I would have every poem ever written about Love,

be signed with my name,

and given to you.

If Time and Money were no object.

I would insure that you would never again,

have a sad day in your life.

 If Time and Money were no object.

I would be sure you would never have to worry again,

about gaining another pound. 

If Time and Money were no object.

I would insure that when looking into a mirror,

you will never see another wrinkle again.

It was a beautiful bank of clouds that was before us.
She turned her back toward me.
Her hands held my arms around her chest.
Each of my hands cupping her breasts.
She pushed her body against me.
Two becoming one in standing before that beauty.
It was an intimate moment,
I will never forget.

Last night, my dear friend Paul Yeager of McKinney, Texas passed away.  Paul was one of the last true American war hero’s who served unselfishly the McKinney, Texas’ community for many years.  Reference this link: http://www.turrentinejacksonmorrow.com/detail.php?id=6218   This poem is dedicated to his family:
 
 
If I should die before you
I will await you on a silver beach
with a golden sun.
 
If I should die before you
time will not move
until your steps are heard behind me.
 
I will know it is you.
I will hear your eternal breath
your low laughter as you approach
to join me.
 
If I should die before you
on the most perfect of days
together we will watch the waves
the breakers making only the most
perfect of patterns.
 
It will be a world that never has a bad day
on a silver beach
with a golden sun
in a special place
for you and me.

I stand with courage in the shadow of my Lord.
The Lord blesses me with His Love.
The Lord protects me from those who attempt to bring me harm.
His justice surpasses any justice man can render their enemies.
My enemies are fools.
As the fallen Angel thought of himself as a God,
he believed his own strength exceeded the Lord.
He shivers in fear before the Light of the Lord.
I kneel in homage and praise of my Lord’s Name,
with humble thanks for His timely justice.
