The poppy blooms o’er many a grave

Of all the souls that we could not save

Colored red like blood that heroes gave

That our emblem might forever wave !

My heart does flutter with every thought

My throat goes dry and my voice gets caught

And for all the sadness war has brought

You’d think we’d accept that lesson taught.

For the time we’ve left, we must demand

That the world we know need take a stand

And plant red poppies across the land

Reminding all that peace is at hand !

Why are children so quiet now

There is no movement from the bough

No vital sounds that emanate

Amongst the guys that made us great ?

I see their faces all around

They do not smile or make much sound

There was a day we treasured all

And cringed whenever one did fall.

The times are changed as we can see

With values lost from infancy

Is there a way for some return

To speak and listen, read and learn ?

In the world each tomorrow brings

I hear the songs the siren sings

It calls my name both loud and clear

What is it that I have to fear ?

Perhaps twill be that I won’t know

The path to take or way to go

Or rather that I may not feel

That all of this is true or real ?

The world I sight with my own eyes

Is full of doubt and much surprise

It’s power is consuming me

Somehow I’m sure I am not free !

The seasons end is drawing near

Before you notice winter’s here

And once again the snow will call

When autumn leaves no longer fall.

Now life is  really much the same

For spring and summer start the game

Enjoy the view as colors fade

From bright sunlight to winter’s shade.

Sometimes it seems in life we lose

The power we had to pick or choose

Among those choices that exist

Believe our faith in God persists !

My heart does beat a happy song

It laughs and sings the whole day long

And keeps a smile upon my face

While I bask in His holy grace

I’m now convinced our lives will be

Bathed in the Lord’s divinity !

Seems I have wept ten thousand tears

And dealt unflinching with my fears

I’ve traveled long and traveled hard

And made a pact with man and God.

I’ve bowed my head to bid farewell

There are no stories left to tell

I’m praying He is on my side

For this our long and final ride !

There is this whisper that I hear

Sometimes it rumbles in my ear

And slowly as I rise from sleep

Into my mind the words do creep

I’ve learned to listen to that voice

And o’er the years I’ve made my choice.

Each morn becomes another day

A fresh beginning in its way

How wonderful our God has been

To gift us with this chance to win !
