Johnny

 

 

Johnny loved to ride his bike

He loved to fly his plane

He loved to make the puddle splash

While walking in the rain

 

He loved to watch the leaves blow by

When autumn days blew in

He loved to run and fly his kite

He loved to take a swim

 

He loved to watch the stars at night

While lying in the field

He loved to watch the snow flakes fly

When autumn days did yield

 

He loved his mom he loved his dad

And everyone he met

He loved his fish, his dog, his cat

O yes he loved his pets

 

He loved the smell of fresh cut grass

Of dinner on the stove

He loved to watch the trees go by

While driving country roads

 

He loved the smell of fresh salt air

And waves of thundering crash

He loved his favorite TV show

It always made him laugh

 

And as I write this poem I get

A thought I think you see

I somehow think I know this lad

O yes, he’s you and me
