When we were young we learned to share

Those early years taught one to care

For lives sometimes can be quite brief

Each bears some semblance to a leaf

That’s born upon the family tree

And tethered there for all to see.

While some may shrivel and grow sere

Still others flee from life severe

As those who cling to that last hope

Within the darkness try to grope

The time is soon, the need is clear

Take hold your roots and face your fear !

 

THOUGHTS OF HOME ( 2016 ) 2016/04/29

There is a place we all yearn to be

It’s not across some far-widened sea

Nor over hills or great mountainsides

And not where malice or anger hides.

It’s not under trees that reach for sky

Or where the eagles and buzzards fly

It’s just a place around the last bend

Of a lonesome road that seeks its end,

To that spot where most lives got their start

And have left behind their lonely heart !

 

YOU AND I ( 2016 ) 2016/04/28

I wish I knew that you and I

Would never have to say goodbye

And that our friendship would live on

Until the day we both are gone.

How foolish since that cannot be

For we both share mortality

And so old friend we must prepare

When you and I no longer share !

 

MY CHOICE ( 2016 ) 2016/04/27

Now once upon a time ago

Before my age began to show

There was a thought had crossed my mind

Of all the treasures one might find

God saved for us a special place

And kindly heart so full of grace.

I’ve known my fill of dreams and things

I do not fly and have no wings

My God’s been good, He heard my voice

And with His love approved my choice !

 

A NATION LOST ( 2016 ) 2016/04/26

The cannibals are on a path

Appearing to be full of wrath

Consuming all that came before

The good, the kind and so much more.

With scant discretion on their part

They operate without a heart

It matters not what they destroy

Or which tactics they employ,

The need for power is all they know

However shall this nation grow ?

 

ENCHANTMENT ( 2016) 2016/04/25

I find myself enchanted by

The way all days just seem to fly

How weeks and months now quickly pass

Like shadows in a looking glass.

I wish that I might halt the clock

And silence all of time’s tick-tock

Before my life does pass away

And I should lose my yesterday !

 

ALONE ( 2016 ) 2016/04/24

There is this fact that I have known

We are each born to life alone

When our time comes to say goodbye

We’re solitary as we die

We travel on that lonely path

With all the power that we hath

For life with Him is fairer still

And all we are is by His will !
