I thought that I might want to be

A songbird perched upon a tree

There hidden deep among the leaves

While chirping songs into the breeze !

The notes would carry through the air

Impressing those who sojourned there

Perhaps they will return once more

To witness a new bird encore !

Awake the joy this hope will be

And join our Lord in harmony !


ONE LAST DAY ( 2014 ) 2014/09/24

I wish I were an hour glass

That holds the precious sand of time

Then I’d control the way days pass

And that would be my wish sublime !

I’d find a way to slow the sand

So time cannot just slip away

And it will seem alright and grand

For us to share this one last day !


WILD BEARS ( 2014 ) 2014/09/23

The only bears I’ve ever seen

Are in the zoo or on the screen

I’d like to think I’ll never meet

A single one out on the street !

Most bears are wild and roam about

They are quite large with scary snout

But if we met I’d stay quite calm

And slowly turn away from harm,

I’d try to walk with a loud sound

Or crunchy step upon the ground

Talking and praying as I flee

Hoping that he’s as scared as me !

The graying cloud of morning mist

Sweeps over one like angels kissed

With dewdrops wet and breeze caressed,

The body seems by calm possessed !

The still of dawn is best of all

To seek the charm of nature’s call

And learn to listen to the voice

That echoes sounds of each one’s choice !

It is to God we owe our vow

To heed His words both then and now !


OUTREACH ( 2014 ) 2014/09/21

It suddenly occurred to me

God’s outreach plan is truly free

Since angels do not charge a fee

While caring for humanity !


MY TREASURE ( 2014 )

Those memories that flood my mind

Are treasures love has left behind

To warm the space of waning hours

Where time does fade amongst the flowers !

They are more clear then e’er before

And to my heart, my faith restore

There is so much that has been lost

I’ve never stopped to count the cost !

But what I know has brought me peace

Because my hopes will never cease

My faith in God does grow and grow

As in my life His blessings flow !


DADDY DEAR ( 2014 ) 2014/09/20

Sixty-five years ago today

My father died, he passed away

We did not know if we’d survive

How would we keep ourselves alive ?

It wasn’t easy I’ll tell you

But we were strong and made it through

It’s true to say that I’m the last

With memories of that sad past !

Such feelings one can never share

Perhaps you know if you’ve been there

So long ago it’s like a dream

That wakens with a silent scream !

He missed it all, the laughs and sighs

The joyous days, the sad goodbyes

How many times I’ve wished you here

My heart still aches for Daddy dear !
