Life is always changing

It never stays the same

The rules keep mutating

It’s like a futile game.

We are growing older

But wiser every day

Bones are growing brittler

More fragile every way.

The story must soon end

It’s finish now quite clear

Come hold my hand dear friend

Let’s pray and have no fear !

 

I REMEMBER ( 2015 ) 2015/02/26

I have seen the Magic Mountain

And embraced its snowy peaks

I have washed in Trevi’s Fountain

And have strolled her busy streets.

I have eaten in the Plaza

Where Bernadette met her Saint

And meandered through the vista

Where Monet did sit and paint.

I have been to London’s Tower

Where Anne Boleyn lost her head

And tred the hills of Gettysburg

Where fields are full of the dead.

I stood and watched the eastern sky

When the Challenger came down

And since that day I’ve wondered why

I still tremble with that sound.

But most of all I remember

Back when I was still a child

The seventh day of December

When all of the world went wild !

 

BOLD DECEPTION ( 2015 )

Somehow it seems along the way

I can’t say why we’ve gone astray

We’ve wandered far off of the road

And took on this excessive load

Who was it knew what this might be

A final act of heresy  ?

Some were good men we know by name

Who tried to save us from this game

As others rushed headlong into

Lack of concern for what was true

They’ve lied and cheated on us all

And bear the blame for freedom’s fall !

The wings of war do sally round

While glory’s moment does astound

No one can know what heroes feel

Until they’ve tasted cold hard steel.

The battle doesn’t mean a thing

Unless you’ve felt the bullet’s sting

The weariness of fighting grows

It numbs the fingers and the toes.

The heart turns faint so full of fear

The end of life and time draws near !

 

YOU ARE ( 2015 ) 2015/02/23

You are the rain that gently falls

The summer breeze that softly calls

The robin high above the eaves

Playing I-see-you in the leaves.

The gull, the wren, the dove, the lark

All creatures moving in the dark

The water rushing rocks and rills

The wide expanse of fields and hills

This world that is Your vast domain

The gift You’ve promised will remain

You are the stars that shine above

You are the object of our love !

 

VALUES ( 2015 )

One fact I’ve learned

Respect is earned

The truth is just

And builds our trust

Deceit is cruel

And breaks the rule

A lie is worse

And brings a curse.

 

OUR BATTLE ( 2015 ) 2015/02/22

There is no honor in a war

That is not what the battle’s for

We fight to gain a victory

To bring us peace and set us free !
