Best Friends

Under the burnt orange glow of a setting sun

Two people out, care free, having fun

With energy fresh, like their lives have just begun

Loving every moment they get to spend

with each other, they are best friends

Father/Son Fun

My six year old son & I are playing around with rhymes

the ones we’re putting together are so simple sometimes

Mouse, house,cat, hat, stuff like that,

nothing fancy, but that’s alright,

I just love having fun together while I write

I know that his childhood will go by fast

In the blink of an eye, a flash,

but in the here & now, we’re having a blast

By: J.N.R Dutton, in collaboration my son Eli

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New Poem

I remember growing up listening to

“Jack & Diane”, “Rain On The Scarecrow”,

“Desperado” and “Simple Man”

There are so many other songs

in the soundtrack of my life

They’ll stick with me, surely,

Until the day I die

& when my time is over

& I’ve got no more seasons in the sun

I’ll leave a mutual love of music etched

In the heart of my son
