How fleet and swift our lives pass by

With minutes lost, the hours fly

There is no time called used to be

What we once knew did rapid flee

And left us there in life’s abyss

Our hopes awash, our love unkissed !

The earth moves slowly round and round

So still we barely hear the sound

Our world’s comprised of life replete

The waters, an aquatic street.

The airborne throngs do mill around

With destinations to be found

This paradise is incomplete

For without faith there dwells defeat !

Those angel eyes that peep at me

Through fingers that play “I can see”

Or lashes with leftover tears

From scary dreams or nighttime fears,

Some shallow breathing in the night

That gives your heart a sudden fright

You find yourself straining to hear

Sounds to assure that all is clear !

 

A WOODEN SPIRE ( 2016 ) 2016/01/28

There is a day that I recall

It happened early in the fall

As we were riding in the car

To visit someone not too far.

We came upon a crossroads stop

I felt my mind spin like a top

For there before my very eyes

Was the most wonderful surprise.

A country church its spires high

They stretched to reach into the sky

This ancient brown wood edifice

That seemed to speak of heaven’s bliss.

The beauty of the grounds about

Spoke loudly for its faith devout

The sight of that old wooden spire

Breaching heaven sets hearts afire.

It’s been so long since I was there

I think I can’t remember where

But this I know when I am sad

The thought of it makes me feel glad !

This lonely vigil we need keep

Ere we shall find eternal sleep,

God’s watchman waits for deeds to show

In which direction we each go.

And who is he, this chosen guard

Who watches those who’ve worked so hard

To reach the goal God has in mind

That we perchance may heaven find ?

 

 

A LONELY CLIMB ( 2016 ) 2016/01/26

I miss my friends from long ago

The happy times we used to know

Football games and special events

Those summer weddings under tents.

All of the wars they had their cost,

Our pals that we have loved and lost

And now the enemy’s become

The dicky hearts we suffer from.

With cancer scoring second best

Our lives are never done with tests

The joys we knew when we were young

Those carefree days are gone and done

I’m sad I’ve lost so many friends

Our lifestyles soon will meet their ends

As will both you and I, in time

This has become a lonely climb !

 

 

HIS WORD ( 2016 ) 2016/01/25

I’m learning to live in a different way

Taking all of my chances from day to day

Trying to be a better version of me

By sharing my dreams and the hopes that I see.

So come and take part in this new escapade

Together we must try to stand unafraid

We’ll join in the chorus that praises our God

Let’s have faith in His word, it won’t be that hard !
