I’ve dreamt about that garden where sweet Jesus took His last walk

And wished how I could have been there to witness His farewell talk !

Our world about is full of sin

What kind of mess are we all in

I’d like to know how we got here

Too many people live in fear

This is not by the Lord’s design

When He’s in charge all will be fine.

Recall the walls of Jericho

Or Sodom and Gomorra’s woe,

The lions will lie down with lamb

Do you remember Isaac’s ram ?

It’s time to get right on the track

We need to take our futures back

We’ll say our prayers and sip the cup

Oh please, dear God, let’s hurry up !

 

 

ON BENDED KNEES ( 2017 )

The mornings come, the mornings go

From dawn through dusk and starlight show

The world we know is dying fast

This future now may be our last

For who can say what will come next

A ferv’rent prayer or holy text ?

The seeing eyes of God above

And unrelenting force of love,

I beg Him here on bended knees

Repair the hole in my heart, please !

The wind it whistles round the bend

And seems to whine “I’m here again”

It travels on to conquer more

With hoary breath and gusty roar

Oh, hear the sound and noisy shout

I sure get tired of striking out !

I wonder, God, if it’s okay

To ask You for another stay ?

I sure could use a second chance

To search around for life’s romance

I do get, oh, so tired of

A world that seems devoid of love !

Does man get lost in hopes that are not fair

While ever wanting to seek paradise,

As trees lift up their arms to God in prayer

Are men then left alone to their device ?

Life has a vast divide existing there

To reach in darkness feeling no alarm

For man’s oft judged by trappings he may wear

And so has learnt how to evade this harm ?

But still in God’s lost idyllic garden

Where fragrant roses will forever bloom

Lie shadows of those soon forgotten

Not unlike whispers in a silent room !

 

 

I HAVE QUESTIONS ( 2017 ) 2017/01/26

What do I see, where have I been

What kind of world do I live in

Where shall I go when life is done

When will I see both moon and sun

How can I tell why I am there

Who’ll be on hand to help me share ?

So many questions fill my mind

A greater need I cannot find

I’d like a clue what to expect

Which things to want or to neglect

For who may guess where we will go

Since none returned, how shall we know ?
