"Memorial Day"

It's a day set aside for remembering
those who before and after have went
fighting for the need of our country
wherever they might be sent.
 
Men and women, young and old
It mattered not you see
a highly trained military military
trying to keep us free.
 
They have fought in strange surroundings
and many lives have been lost
now some were only wounded
but for us, still paid the cost.
 
One can't feel pain or anguish
these men and women all went through
yet we can honor them for what they did
for the freedom of me and you.
 
We can hold in our hearts the memories
of thousands that have died
yes and pray for the many wounded
who lost comarades by their side.
 
Now war is never over
and battle never won
the loss of the lives ere will remain
long after the fighting's done.
 
Roy E. Schepp

"We Can Do It!"

Yes, lets all protest together
about our sad and dreary life
just forget about the children,
faithful husband; and gracious wife.
 
Don't remember your friends and neighbors
though the numbrs do increase
fighting battles in some foreign land
so we may live in peace.
 
Yes and what about that one that took the job
you didn't want to do
he is still working steadily
and that could have been you.
 
I think we've convinced our leaders
and those who one day will do the same
our students will graduate with honors
if we only change the schools name.
 
With this one we have a problem
for history you do not change
the good, the bad or the ugly
you can only rearrange.
 
Give our protest money to the teachers
that should make up a good raise
yes nd if they can teach the students how to use a pencil
offer them some extra praise.

"Ma-Ma Said"

When Ma-Ma said; we listened
for wisdom was her game
this showed up in our livelyhood
when adults we bacame.
 
She was always there to protect us
and keep us from all harm
yes and many were the day
I fell asleep on Mother's arm.
 
Now Ma-Ma fixed the food for everyone
from sunrise til sunset
she then washed clothes and cleaned each room
though her work wasn't finished yet.
 
No Ma-Ma still had to read a story
and show us games to play
when we went to be all were quite tired
yet for Ma-Ma just another day.
 
Yes show your love for Ma-Ma
and all the things that she did do
don't stop with a one day "Mother's Day"
why not make it two.
 
Roy E. Schepp

"G. G. Hunter"

to all you out there with a pet
I ask that you listen up
it matters not if it's a kitten
or a pup.
 
They will not live forever
though at times this may seem
yes in all reality
this is but a dream.
 
Now they are a great companion
and all will return your love
yet don't forget what's written
in the paragraph above.
 
Well I had a cat named G. G.
and I thought she would forever be
now it seems the Lord did need her
a little more than me.
 
The Vet told me there was nothing else
that for her he could do
so I took her home and held on my lap
repeating that my love was true.
 
She look up like she understood
and snuggled in real tight
well the one I was counting on forever
did pass away that night.
 
Well for all the love I gave her
I got it back two-fold
yes and I learned about forever
before I got to old.

"Squirrel Hunting 101"

I think it was last Tuesday
or somewhere there avout
my feelings toward my squirrel guide
were giving me some doubt.
 
Now they run across the highway
and will leap from tree to teree
yet where my guides been taking me
none of this I see.
 
Once in a while he'll get one
and his bounty he will share
still it always makes me wonder
how long that it was there.
 
I will admit his rate is low
compared to others I have tried
yet why is it where e're we go
from me they seem to hide.
 
Now my guides a better shooter
Than I will ever be
still when he gets my age on
how much we all shall see.
 
I do not want to loose him
for he is a long time friend
yet if he wants to get his fee
this drought had better end.
 
Roy E. Schepp

"Be My Valentine"

It seems that I have waited
For ever for this day to come
I have some words to say to you
And I'm sure that you have some.
 
We've been together for so long
Yet the times went swiftly bye
I've seen you smile with pure delight
And have also seen you cry.
 
Yes life goes on with or without
Us making special plans
It's best that we some patience show
And the rest leave in God's hands.
 
I've loved you from the very start
And more and more each day
It seems like you do feel the same
For you sure do act that way.
 
You are quite special in my life
And with you I love to share
I'm sure you know, but I will remind
That I do truly care.
 
Yet I still have one questin
For this sweet love of mine
Tell me darling you'll say yes
And be my Valentine.
 
Roy E. Schepp

"Happy New Year"

The New Year is upon us
and due for to unfold
yet do not get your wishes too high
at least I have been told.
 
Yes wishes do for many
to extend their hopeful ways
still you'll find for the most of us
it works the same with rainy days.
 
Now I made a list of things to do
for the year the just went by
well I searched everywhere but couldn't find
and even my cat does not know why.
 
Yet one needs to put a limit
on things you plan to do
that way you'll feell much better
if you acomplish but a few.
 
Yes review your need to do list
and with caution please take heed
you've listed many things to do
of which you do not need.
 
Now don't put off for tomorrow
things you should do today
yet make time in your schedule
to pelax, enjoy and play.
 
I close out with a great big wish
for one and all of you
may you find peace and love in you hearts
this entire new year through.

“A Christmas Story”

Many listen for the sleigh bells
That in a far off distance ring
Yet others shout Hosanna’s
For the new born Savior King.
 
Now Christmas day is celebrated
In many a varied way
For the Christian it’s quite religious
But with non-believers, just a holiday.
 
The Wise Men traveled to Bethlehem
Just guided by a star
They were bearing gifts for the Baby Jesus
Which all brought from afar.
 
Today most rely on Santa Claus
And his reindeer overhead
The principal is much the same
But they’re store bought gifts instead.
 
Yes the stores put out their welcome mat
Two months before Christmas day
Trying to help us fill our shopping list
In a most beneficial way.
 
We all help them with their efforts
For the needs are much abused
In the corner of room number three you’ll find
Some toys that haven’t been used.
 
Just throw away the want list
And to all little children bring
Clothes that will keep them all warm
Until the first breath of spring.
 
On Christmas Eve, fill up all the stockings
So all is ready for Christmas morn
Yes and while opening presents take time to remind
That today the Christ Child was born.
 
Roy E. Schepp

“Where Did They Go?’

Where did all the colors go
One used to wear with pride
You used to see them everywhere
In the stands on either side.
 
The uniforms now on the field
Do no longer represent
True colors of your alma-mater
No matter where you went.
 
Yes it used to spur your ego
When you knew from where they came
They had beat you good for many years
But lately you’ve won some.
 
Now you let them see your colors
Which you proudly do display
Hoping when the game is through
A win might come your way.
 
Well who has changed the color code
I know no one asked me
When something serves so very many
Why can’t they let it be?
 
Roy E. Schepp

"Give Thanks"

Be thanksful for your blessings
As you count them one by one
It will be quite off believe me
If you find that you have none.
 
Some have many, some have less
Though I feel you'll find it true
You have things for to be thankful
That you mighe never knew.
 
You have the freedom for to travel
And peace which does protect
There are friends and neighbors down the street
That treat you with respect.
 
Being rich or poor doesn't determine
The quality of ones life
It's the love of your children and grandchildren
Your husband or your wife.
 
There are times that you will hunger
And others your cup will overflow
Thank the lord that you're still living
For the ending se don't know.
 
Take the time on this Thanksgiving
For to do a quick review
Find the thanks in the life you're living
And may God bless all of you.
 
-Roy E. Schepp

"All Are Heroes"

Do not judge the soldier's valor
By the medals they have won
many loose their lives or members
Long before the battle's won.
 
Instead treat them all as heroes
Dedicated one and all
Fighting for our country's freedom
Fearing not what might befall.
 
Comfort all that feel the trauma
Give hand to all those in need
Show respect for all the branches
For we need them all indeed.
 
Pray for his and her encounters
Knowing none shall be the same
Faith and trust will sure be needed
Because keeping peace is not a game.
 
Make a bond with those around you
Show them all you really care
We're indebted for the freedom
They have given me and you.

(Hey Mam-ma) - “I Can’t Dance”

Whenever I do the simple Two Step
I end up with three feet
Yes and halfway through the Electric Slide
Somehow I lose the beat.
 
Now I really like the fast dance
And the moves that some can make
Yet I haven’t found the courage
That doing this would take.
 
Yes dancing can be lots of fun
For family friends and all
Still keep your mind on what you’re doing
To avoid an unexpected fall.
 
Now from time to time I fake it
Bending low with both my knees
Hoping my partner will give me
Just one big extra squeeze.
 
Well for sure I’ve grown older now
Though still not o’er the hill
Yes I just need to practice
And for this you know I will!
 
Roy E. Schepp
Emporia, Virginia

"Explain to the Kids"

How do so many people
That claim to be so wise
Come to us with their decisions
Then holler back with suprise!
 
Well the south trys putting down the north
So this time their side I'll take
Just to show you it matters not where you live
But what common sense you make.
 
The south has found its schools are pitiful
Both the buildings and education in decay
Yet our local leaders haven't a clue
To regroup how will they pay.
 
Now the problem didn't start yesterday
Its been around for quite a while
Yes several administrations saw it go down
Yet the best they could do was smile.
 
There's no doubt that we'll need money
In fact most likely lots
Still we can't go the the end of the rainbow
and pick up those big pots.
 
Now I'm not saying we can't do this
though our children will suffer til we do
Yes the money is needed to complete this job
Not for the many projects quite new.
 
The slavery museum and celetery clean up
Are wants that shouldn't overcede
It is far more important for each child around
To get the education they need.
 
Your talk of  moving statues and flags
Is brought on by an unknown amount
It might be wise to find a supervisor
that can do an actual count.
 
Yes you have started many new projects
Yet to finish one might be nice
It does little good to start another
Until you've raised the first ones price.
 
Roy E. Schepp

Let OLE Glory Fly

No greater sight can we behold
Than our own Red, White and Blue
Yes unfurling from a pole top
Noting freedm for me and you.
 
We owe this display to all the veterans
Who have fought on thru the years
In their dedicataion lives were lost
and many familews frought to tears
 
Yes we fly the flag with deeoest respect
For our soldiers then and now
Yet sometined we don't do justice
Not by flying it but how.
 
We take our car fast the the shop
If it seems to need repair
Still I know of a flag that's seem by most
Waving shredded in the air.
 
Now I don't know the procedure
But there must be some nice way
One could ask the before mentioned
To change the flag they've on display.
 
I'm sure it's not intended
And to their knowledge might not know
Yet I hope soon it's discovered
So our Stars and Stripes will flow.
 
Roy E. Schepp

Happy Father's Day (Do You Qualify)

Are you there when e're you're needed
reaching out before the fall
making sure you show no favorites
but treat equal one and all.
 
Can you see ahead when it is best
to kindky step aside
knowing that if they can't work it out
in you they will confide.
 
Yes there's times you must show patience
pay attentuon from afar
sometimes children need that extra space
to respect just who you are.
 
You must show them that you love them
through words alone don't pass the test
a nice compliment won't hurt the cause
but a special hug is best.
 
Now some won't call you Father
yet that is not so bad
you see if you pass the test above
you're a very special dad.
 
Happy Father's Day to all.
 
Roy E. Schepp

(Mother) "Can You Hear Me?"

From the well lit sky below
Or when the bit full moons above
Did you know that I still miss you
And keep trying to send you my love?
 
Yes I miss you when the morning comes
And all throughout the day
We never talked if all went bad
That things would be this way.
 
Now I was the youngest son you had
And or me you said you'd stay
Well things it seems sure changed a lot
Or how did you get away.
 
Yes I was moving in for one more hug
So I could hold you oh so tight
My sister said she has gone away
And won't be back tonight.
 
Well I knew the lord would need you
And in time I'd have to share
Yet I didn't want you leaving
Before I could show my care.
 
Yes you were the greatest of Mothers
For me you did not fail
When you're on break from your Heavenly Grace
Don't forget to read your e-mail!
 
Roy E. Schepp

"One Breath Away"

Just a breath away without knowing
The fate you may soon deplore
One breath away without knowing
If the Lord wil give you more.
 
I was found in this very condition
Though not knowing really why
Yes I couldn't find that second breath
No matter How I'd try.
 
Well they found a blockage in my heart
And knew this would relate
Yet more important were my heart values
Some pumping early and others late.
 
They shipped me out of town reall fast
It was neerly in the night
The senic scenes one often sees
Were from my view of flight.
 
I was told it would be easy
For so many had went on before
Yet don't believe for a minute
Until you're in and out that door.
 
Nine days of laying
In some contorted way
That easy bit that i waas told
I'm reminded of each day.
 
Now blessed was the surgeon
and to have the good Lord standing by
Yet I falied my religious conviction
For each day I would ask why!
 
Roy E. Schepp
 

A Poem for the Poet

Our friend Roy E. Schepp is a bit under the weather, and while we pray for a speedy recovery, a reader offered this poem for Roy:

Hope that your heart
Gets fixed good as new
Cause no one writes poems
Quite like you

"Just a Little Smile"

A smile is not apparel
That one puts on to wear
A smile is your initiative
To let all know you care.
 
Yes, while you are attending
A patient’s greatest need
That little bit of curled lip
Is on what they often feed.
 
It isn’t hard; it will not hurt
But many barriers it will break
Yes, and very soon you’ll realize
The short time it does take.
 
Now no two are alike, you’ll find
At times you must increase
Yet when you go and they return
You’ll see that inner peace.
 
Well the time and need will vary
For their problems aren’t the same
Still all will remember your smile
Much quicker than your name.
 
I witnessed this quite personal
When as a patient I did enter
I commend the staff for easing my pain
At Southern Virginia Regional medical Center
 
May God Bless,
Roy E. Schepp
(3/14-3/16) 2017

"Happy Valentine's Day"

The time has come again my dear
To show in some fine way
The love that I have for you
Each and every day.
 
Now you won't tell me what you want
Or what last year I did get
Yes so now I'm in a guessing mode
And haven't thought of it yet.
 
Well I could get  your favorite candy
Or a dozen roses shure would do
Yet I think that I'll get one of both
For I have such love for you
 
I hope your day will be delightful
And to my question don't decline
Yes sweetheart please say you'll always be
My very special Valentine.
 
Roy E. Schepp

"The Last Act"

You may talk to people young and old
Across this nation wide
Ask if they've ever seen a circus
And a yes most will confide.
 
There is no greater entertainment
At an affordable price to pay
Yes and the downfall of the Ringling Bros.
Will be felt my more each day.
 
Now from the early days of childhood
To the adulthood I am near
I've waited patiently along with others
For the circus to come each year.
 
Many young children in our neighborhood
They gave work for several days
We'd help feed and water the elephants
and watch as the tents they raised.
 
They let us have part in their set-up
It mattered not whether lad or lass
Yes and for the little that we did
All received one free pass.
 
Yes just to watch them unloading
Was more excitement than I have found
Than you will find in your travels
Through many a small town.
 
Now they didn't hurt the animals
As certain protestors show aloud
Many which have their dog jerking on a chain
But feel so very snug and proud.
 
Yes we all will miss the Circus
Because something for all it did provide
The clowns in the stands and the trapeze acts above
And standing in line for a camel ride.
 
Roy E. Schepp

"How Much Does a Snowman Weigh?"

Now I am sure that it will vary
In its size and shame and all
Yet id seems that so very little
Caused my large gazebo to fall.
 
Yes it busted the canvas and supports
Almost halfway to the ground
Now I didn't see or hear it
But this is what I found.
 
Well I should have taken it down I guess
Yet I really didn't know
You see in this particular area
It's not noted for deep snow.
 
its a lesson that i learned
And for now I've just despair
Yes every time I go outside
That mess is hanging there.
 
Now it's just material and no one got hurt
It's a blessing that I see
Yet i wonder how many in this wide world
Are just as smart as me!
 
-Roy E. Schepp

"That's Life"

Now I never wrote to Santa Clause
But he seemed to know that I'd been good
You see this year I got more presents
Than I ever thought I would.
 
Yes i even picked up many friends
That I never had before
Yet I lost a few that were hanging around
And now cant find my door.
 
This is the life we all must face
For indeed it's no sure thing
You win some and loose some, but it's not over
Until you hear the fat lady sing.
 
Yes the year went by quite readily
And soon will be no more
The many things I planned to accomplish
I'll still be looking for.
 
Now I never made no resolutions
For it doesn't work for me
I just try to do my very best
And in the end I'll look and see.
 
Yes my Christmas was very special
And once again because of friends
It matters not how a year starts out
The main thing is how it ends.
 
Now G.G. my cat was excited too
with the bed that she got
She like gifts the same as me and you
But to please don't take a lot.
 
Well the New Year is upon us
And what it'll bring we do not know
Yet I for one am hoping that
It will go a little more slow!
 
Roy E. Schepp
 
 

“Holiday Greetings”

Well Christmas time is almost here
And we enhance the joy of giving
Yes the Christ Child that once in a manger lay
Has changed our style of living.
 
Most every yard is lit up
With bright lights for all to see
In most every home somewhere you’ll find
A very special Christmas Tree.
 
Now the presents will be wrapped up
So the gifts they do not show
Yet take it from me, viewing the size and shape
What it is each youngster will know.
 
We try to please each child with toys
For all would like some of those
Still if we would stick to reality
The need is for good warm clothes.
 
The Wisemen three did travel far
Across the open desert sand
Guided only by a star
On their way to a strange land.
 
They were heading off to Bethlehem
Bearing gifts along the way
Searching for a special manger
In which the baby Jesus soon would lay.
 
Now Christians all await Christmas Eve
For then its soon to be Christmas Morn
Yes and through the excitement don’t forget to remind
It’s the day our Savior was born.
 
May all have a blessed Christmas.
 
Roy E. Schepp

"Which Eye Is Closed"

We're tearing down monuments and pulling down flags
So we can forget what used to be
Yet we spend millions on a slavery museum
So our young and newborn can see.
 
If one would open both eyes
They could see this isn't right
You may lay ground for the future
But the past is out of sight.
 
So many know so little
Of what happened way back then
They make up stories to suit their cause
Yet don't know why or when.
 
We're forgetting our poor and homeless
For complaining makes more news
It;s not good to destroy unity
But that is what so many choose.
 
Another day shall pass on by
And from light to dark it'll turn
Yet we;ll still have people on our streets
The facts of life will never learn.
 
Roy E. Schepp

"Do You Have a Cat?"

If you ask this question to the most
Then pay attention to what they say
You'll find so many will say yes
But don't k know where it is today.
 
Now this is the truth without a doubt
And the reasoning isn't hard
Yes if you don't feed them regularly
They will wander to another yard.
 
You can take my word straight to the bank
For on the subject a specialist I be
The past eight years I've caught sixty in my yard
And none of them belonged to me.
 
Well my cat loves me very much
For I feed her every day
Now this is what each one must do
Or you'll create another stray.
 
Now if we could turn them into tourists
The city would be so proud
Yet keeping a cat not spayed or neutered
Should not be allowed.
 
yes each dog requires a license
And each year must get required shots
it might be good to do the same with cats
Causing a cut back in many spots.
 
Now I am an animal lover
But my thoughts on this don't vary
The many cats loose on our city streets
Just how much disease do they carry?
 
Roy E.. Schepp

"Do You Know Lonely?"

Lonely is when no one you see
for days and days on end
no one from your family
and not even a close friend.
 
You can go to any rest home
and this problem will appear
one don't have to be related
they are just glad that you are near.
 
Their faces will all tell a story
and time you will see a smile
you do not need to spend the night
just visit for  a while.
 
Now, all rest homes serve a purpose
with their very special care
yet when there you place a loved one
don't forget that they are there!
 
Yes take the time to visit
for lonely they all are
it shouldn't cause a problem
and most likely its not far.
 
Roy E. Schepp

“Is It Fair”

In traveling one sees lots of things
That to most I’m sure amaze
Yet you wonder how their pets feel
On those overheated days.
 
Now you’re traveling down the freeway
Or on a scenic tour here and about
Well you may be enjoying all you take in
But your pets would like to get out.
 
Well of course it’s an inconvenience
Yet you knew of this ahead
They didn’t need to make this journey
For you could have left at a shelter instead.
 
Yes I’m sure you’d get an earful
If your pets could only talk
Most would like to decide for themselves
When to get up, lay down, or walk.
 
Now they’re not always ready to eat or drink
Just because that’s what you say
Yet you’re responsible and have to try
For form home your now miles away.
 
Yes do yourself a favor of sorts
No matter what you may hear
Give your pets a vacation too
And leave them at home next year!
 
Roy E. Schepp

"It's Our Job"

Remember not so long ago
Of the cold weather we complained
Yes and then it started again
When it seemed it always rained.
 
Well you can still hear those voices
If you stand in the right spot
Once again the weather has changed
and for most it is too hot.
 
We can talk about the weather
Though there's not much we can do
It's just "Mother Natures" way of trying
To please both me and you.
 
Now the weather makes one change their plans
Upon any given day
Yet it's something you must deal with
When you're on vacation far away.
 
Yes it's our job to complain
And we do it very well
Still when our favorite will come around
It's much too hard to tell.
 
Accept it as it is each day
Knowing that it soon could change
then perhaps it will be what you want
For the weather can be strange.

“Heading Off to Nashville”

Yes I’m heading off to Nashville
Or somewhere close to there
You see I’ve now my own guitar
A birthday present beyond compare.
 
It shines so bright it hurts the eyes
Unless you’ve foster grant to shade
Yes and to the “Reunion Band” I have no choice
That my special thanks be made.
 
They are my favorite leave no doubt
And I’m only part of a long list
Now if you’ve bit seen them perform
Then you don’t know what you’ve missed.
 
Yes they sing with special clarity
And when they play don’t miss a beat
I can enjoy them hour after hour
With a soda in my lawn chair seat.
 
The whole group is very friendly
And they’ll take the time for you
Now if you have a special request
They’ll try to do that too.
 
Well they made my birthday quite special
And a lot of extra work it did make
Yet do to the fire chiefs warning
They couldn’t lite the candles on my birthday cake!
