I’d like to think where e’er you are,  you hear the bugle’s call

And know we’re missing you from mid-November through next fall

I see you in the twilight just before the even’s pall

It’s with morning sunlight rising I miss you most of all !

My heart is wild, I know the tune

I hear the sound midnight or noon

It echoes sadly aft we start

Before life ends or lives must part !

Oh would that we might understand

The first salute or clasp of hand

An early blessing, new command

A grand new start before we stand !

I’ve seen the troops in battle dress

They make me proud I must confess

I wish they were but dressing-up

To partake of sweet valour’s  cup

Instead of battling someone’s cause

While fighting in these futile wars.

There is no break nor any end

The fracas leaves no untouched friend

There’s no peace found to fill the air

We’ve only distress everywhere.

The saddest part we must accept

We’ve done our job and are bereft !

When I recall how life is spent

I wonder where my childhood went

I guess the aged think like me

Together we share empathy.

In all the time that has gone by

Seems childhood is the first to fly

The lessons learned, the very best

They’ve helped us to survive life’s test.

We made it through this miracle

No stopping now, what e’er we do !

 

WORDS, WORDS ( 2016 ) 2016/05/26

The thoughts they rise quick from the heart

So like a stream of stop and start

There is no way there is control

As words just start to roll and roll

Quite like the breeze or winds that blow

To keep recording with the flow

While from the mind this message send

T’would be alright if it should end !

 

OLD BONES ( 2016 ) 2016/05/25

Now I’ve writ for many a year

Both out of love or foolish fear

I’ve learned to cut my words in half

To add a chuckle or a laugh,

And scale down every fancy word

So that my thoughts are plainly heard

I beg You Lord not to forget

That these old bones have some use yet !
