The snake has left its skin behind

In hope that those who watch are blind

To cuckold all before their eyes

And speed their cultures quick demise

All values lost the powers lag

Who will defend the heroes flag ?

I miss my mom I loved her so

I’d like to think that when I go

To join her in the promised land

She will be there to take my hand.

But if this hope cannot be so

I’m sure that I will never know

And little matter does it make

If this belief is a mistake.

Here is the message we may save

There is no mem’ry in the grave !

I love you Lord, this much I know

I’m thankful for the trees that grow

The flowers that will all spring forth

As winter winds escape due north,

The raucous clouds that bring us rain

To help implode great fields of grain

And snow that melts into the stream

Where schools of fish will spawn and teem.

I’m grateful for the air that sings

And carries life upon its wings

The gull, the dove, the sparrow small

Belong to God as do we all !

My Mother taught me how to smile

To keep my values all worthwhile

And try to be both sweet and kind

Despite the anger one may find.

My Father taught me to be true

Respect the old red, white and blue,

To honor God with faith and deed

And cultivate both plant and seed.

My Nana taught me how to pray

And live with truth from day to day

My Pop he gave me sober thought

To follow all the lessons taught.

My old Aunt Rose helped me to grow

Into the girl who learned to sew

My children taught me how to wait

With patience at lifes starting gate.

I’m blest for all the lessons learned

And grateful for the friends I’ve earned

But most of all I’m thankful for

The chance to knock at God’s front door.

 

ONE LAST CHOICE ( 2013 ) 2013/11/26

Could we but know what life may hold

Would we perform in manner bold

Or take the path of lesser ways

To weaken failures of our days ?

I’m never sure what I should choose

There’s much at stake to win or lose

Somehow I’d like to think that I

Might opt to give love one last try !

 

THE PATHWAY ( 2013 )

This heart of mine has run its race

But finds there is a lot more space

To gather in those left outside

Who’ve lost their way, their hope, their pride.

They need some help to reinvent

The manner days and lives are spent

While we who’ve tred this path before

Have learned to knock upon the door

That opens wide to Gods true way

To teach, to help, to thank, to pray !

 

GRACE ( 2013 ) 2013/11/25

The time has come the book is read

We will not scurry to our bed

For all our dreams will fade and die

In that brief space we bid goodbye.

The earthly stores we hid away

Will come to nought on that last day

Our lives were meant to end in grace

As we now know it’s God we face.
