I thank you Lord for all you’ve done

Not just for me but everyone

I’m grateful for Your help and care

And glad that You are always there.

I know You are the keeper of

My heart and mind from up above,

That all I have You’ve given me

And all I am belongs to Thee

I am so glad my life began

Close to the ocean’s magic span

All seasides bring great joy to me

I’ve spent my life next to the sea.

 

For I have been in Jersey born

And loved its waters night and morn

I’ve spent my childhood playing by

The edge of lakes or brooks nearby.

 

The sound of water seems to me

Like some majestic symphony

There’s never in my life a day

The water’s not a walk away.

 

To me the choice is matter small

If leafy pond or waterfall

Some stream meandering about

Or bubbling spring with water spout.

 

Now I’m a Pisces, water sign

Two little fishes unaligned

While one swims up, the other down

Whatever happens we don’t drown !

Now I have met the devil and fought him hand and fist

There is no way I wouldn’t, by strength and with great risk

The battle left me empty and yearning for a rest

I shall arise tomorrow if I survive this test !

The walls are sterile, antiseptic clean

The floors are silent mopped by hands unseen

The night is long and chill and strangely stark

As tip toe feet cross these halls in the dark.

There is one thought that quickly flashes by

This is a place where few prepare to die

The air is still, but hear the humming sound

As thousands of machines do all surround.

Here nurses try to understand slurred speech

Dealing kindly with parts of pain’s release

Pray time does rapid heal without delay

As some won’t live to see another day !

I’d like to take the time to say

I wish you all a joyous day

With peace and happiness to share

And lots of extra love to spare !

 

FULL OF JOY ( 2016 )

When I grew up life was so hard

There were no swing sets in the yard

And baby sitters were unknown

Your parents left you home alone

There were no bathrooms in the house

You took the path to an outhouse.

We never minded that at all

Although at times I thought I’d fall

Into that abyss in the ground

Without a hope of being found

That’s how I learned to be so brave

Like all the candles I still save.

Yet life was real and full of hope

One didn’t in the darkness grope,

It made us strong and very wise

Our world was full of great surprise.

God gave us will to make a choice

To use our hands and heart and voice.

The stoves were big and black and bold

And kept us warm through winter cold

Each family had an icebox

No TV but a small voice-box

We cherished it, both girl and boy

Those days of old were full of joy !

 

 

COMMON DESTINY ( 2016 ) 2016/03/26

The moment’s come to bid goodbye

To all I love ere I should die

For time is swift as we all know

One can’t command it stop or go.

The end is quick, affords no choice

We are adrift without a voice

It matters not the age we are

Or if we’ve traveled wide or far.

The goal is clear enough to see

Just how each one is dear to me

Since all must pass, as is the case

It ‘s still the rule none can erase !
