Hello. Has been a while since we communicated.

Shining Fruits From A Solid Tree - Accepted for publication in July


As I rest on this high mountaintop
blessings come, they never stop
All my family are blessings to me
shining fruits from a solid tree

The clouds parting early each dawn
sunshine on flowers on the lawn
Looking closer I am content to see
smooth waves upon my family sea

Whenever this life sends some bad
I reflect on blessings I've had
Bow my head and settle in to pray
good Lord, thank you for every day

As my time for leaving comes near
I stand in faith not abject fear
Seeing my family in heaven my goal
praying God's mercy on every soul

As I rest on this high mountaintop
blessings come, they never stop
All my family are blessings to me
shining fruits from a solid tree

As Midnight Moon Shines Upon Her Eyes -Accepted for publication in September

In a dream world where fantasies abound
shall be where my princess is found.
Wrapped in her vision an angelic choir
cherubs singing her heart's desire.

Her voice soothes every hearing soul
spreading happiness her daily goal
As midnight moon shines upon her eyes
a thought comes to me so very wise.

Surely she could come to me down here
easing my hurt, wash away my fear.
A soft gentle touch to my spirit renew
help me find a love any man is due.

In a dream world such fantasy exist
Her heart's desire, anything on her list.

Shining Fruits From A Solid Tree--By Robert Lindley--United States
Shining Fruits From A Solid Tree

As I rest on this high mountaintop
blessings come, they never stop
All my family are blessings to me
shining fruits from a solid tree

The clouds parting early each dawn
sunshine on flowers on the lawn
Looking closer I am content to see
smooth waves upon my family sea

Whenever this life sends some bad
I reflect on blessings I've had
Bow my head and settle in to pray
good Lord, thank you for every day

As my time for leaving comes near
I stand in faith not abject fear
Seeing my family in heaven my goal
praying God's mercy on every soul

As I rest on this high mountaintop
blessings come, they never stop
All my family are blessings to me
shining fruits from a solid tree
