Poetry from a Dublin Scientist

Knit Me Some Kindness

Knit me some kindness

A warm and fuzzy hug just for me

Something to warm on cold nights

To keep out the darkness and keep in the light

To bring comfort and security

To help me through my darkest days

To lift me when I’m down

To keep me from falling again

Knit me some kindness

As a symbol of our friendship

And I will knit you some as well

Grow Old With Me

Grow old with me
Let us watch the world pass by
Let us lament how things have changed
And complain how they always stay the same
Let us ignore the minute details of life
And concentrate on the important stuff
Like who gets to tuck the grandkids in
Or who will get the last word today
More so, grow old with me
So that I can spend each day with you
Everyday an adventure
Everyday made new an exciting
Simply because you are there
To share it with me
