I had some company today

They were scratch-scratching on my door

They really hadn’t come to play

Although I knew what they came for !

There is a shelf about so high

That from the doorway you can see

And on it those treats that you buy

Stuffed into jars filled with goodies.

“Well how are you” said I to them

Two pair of eyes grew very wide

“How nice to see you once again

And would you like to come inside ?”

They never seem to make a mess,

They leave no crumbs upon the floor

They are polite and cause no stress

And leave no paw prints on my door !

Too often in the twilight as day begins to fold

And all of life’s real stories prepare to be retold

There rises intermission when nighttime hushes all

As somewhere in the distance a vision is recalled.

Now we are brought again to the stories of the past

Where tales of our commission were never meant to last

And in these final moments as life does fade away

We’re left with the decision of what we have to say.

Farewell to all our colleagues, both family and friend

And if we’ve ever hurt you, please know it is the end

There will be no tomorrow this is a last goodbye

One final wish we ask for, remember do not cry !

 

OUR TURN ( 2016 ) 2016/09/28

I never  thought that I would find

A place where I’d have peace of mind

Or learn to live beyond the race

That infiltrates life’s current pace.

It seems as though change is okay

To challenge us from day to day

The problem is we need to learn

That God helps us each in our turn !

 

 

RELEASE ( 2016 ) 2016/09/27

The infamy of events gone by

Those scenes of the past that made us cry

The tearful times no one will forget

Sad memories that do haunt us yet

These are the shadows of all we hate

That we’ve learned to fear but much too late.

These agonies fail to go away

Increasing more with each passing day

Oh when, oh when will this madness end

Oh where, oh where does the blame depend

May the Lord above help us find peace

And from this anger grant our release !

 

 

 

 

LOVING CARE ( 2016 ) 2016/09/26

There are times I rest idly on my bed

While many visions spin around my head

And I am caught in pages of the past

Among those hopes and dreams that did not last.

Now I’m sure hopes are prayers we cannot say

And dreams must keep until a later day

Lose not your faith in all that is to come

This Power we trust is neither blind nor dumb

And all we ask is that  we may but share

The smallest bit of our God’s loving care !

 

BATTLESORE ( 2016 ) 2016/09/25

Days are I wakeup with such pain

Especially if it should rain

I’d rather stay tucked in my bed

Until all of the rain has fled

However that might take more time

I could move to another clime.

To tell the truth I’m not quite sure

If that solution is the cure

Perhaps since ageing is the case

I’m stuck here with the human race

I guess I’ll have to settle for

These last few years with battle sore !

 

 

 

LIVES DO FLY ( 2016 ) 2016/09/24

The city lights grow dimmer now

They’re hidden by the fog somehow

The mist moves softly through the trees

And cloaks the rustle of the leaves.

I hear a moan that comes and goes

I feel a chill rush to my toes

Too soon the winter will be here

With vestiges of vision drear.

If all the frost and snow arrive

How shall we then keep warmth alive,

We’ll bundle up in winter’s best

Hats, gloves and scarves with padded vest.

Do not lose heart no matter what

We’ll give it all that we have got

The seasons seem to march on by

The years grow wings and lives do fly !
