GO BACK AGAIN ( 2017 ) 2017/06/30

We found our faith, both strong and mild

When most believed in the Christ Child

We sang His hymns and spread His prayer

Because we knew that He was there

Life seemed to be quite simple then

I wish we could go back again !

The sound rings out on Sunday morn

A peal of bells faint and forlorn

See how it echoes on the air

A calling card for all to share.

Oh how I wish the time were near

Believers everywhere could hear

Sweet freedom ring across the land

A new world under God’s command  !

Give me the words, dear Lord to say

To help me make it through each day

Show me the path, the way to go

Guide me oh Lord to goodness grow !

Oh my dearest love what shall I do

To make sure that I am there for you

I’d like to think that you would rely

On my best efforts to get you by

In spite of my fallibility

I promise you, you can count on me !

 

 

 

 

 

UNLOCK THE GATE ( 2017 ) 2017/06/26

The hum of life is all around

Hear now its rapid growing sound

Why even bees get in their share

You’ll find they’re busy everywhere.

The leaves are rustling overhead

I wish I knew what’s being said

The world today’s a mystery

With much to learn and more to see

Oh blessed Lord why must we wait

For angels to unlock the gate ?

 

 

TO STILL MY VOICE ( 2017 ) 2017/06/25

There is this battle that I fight

From early morn straight through the night

It is a war I cannot win

Sometimes I think I should give in

But that is not left up to me

And leaves no option I can see.

As much as I may choose to stay

Such choices do not pass my way

My God supreme does have control

O’er conscience, body, heart and soul

And He alone does make the choice

To stop my heart or still my voice !

I find the world is occupied

With selfishness and foolish pride

Such nonsense to cast sense aside

While from the truth forever hide !

 

WHERE IS THE DREAM ( 2017 ) 2017/06/23

Do feel the sun, its warmth is there

As is the scent upon the air

That flutters sweetly on the breeze

And waltzes lightly through the trees

Oh pleasures all, where have you gone

Where is this dream we’re counting on ?

The Lord above is kind and sweet

And holds our hand e’en  in defeat

He knows when we have had enough

And smooths the path when it is rough

God bless us all, may we survive

Until Lord Jesus will arrive !

 

 

 

THE FIRST STONE ( 2017 ) 2017/06/21

Now I have trudged this rocky path

With angry crowds so full of wrath

I really don’t know what to think

Seems sanity is on the brink

There’s not much left to make great sense

The climate has become intense.

Participants are so inclined

Pretending to be dumb and blind

But stop before one does the deed

The rule in hand all must concede

The Lord demands that he alone

Who sinless be, cast the first stone !

For so it is and it will be

We need the truth to set us free

What is the cost of liberty

If we are blind or will not see ?

 

HAVE A HEART ( 2017 ) 2017/06/19

I hung my heart out on a limb

And prayed someone would reel me in

I searched for love the way one should

And wound up lost in some vast wood.

I tried my hand at show and tell

And that did not go quite so well

I decided right then and there

I’d had enough of grief to spare.

And so I bought myself a book

Turned out that I was this great cook,

Love’s not what it’s cracked up to be

Seems business was my destiny !

 

 

 

 

 

DO YOUR BEST ( 2017 ) 2017/06/18

The lonely heart doth patient wait

For those who file past heaven’s gate

There is no cause to cry aloud

For who will hear in such a crowd.

The constant vigil all must wage

Before each earns space on life’s stage

The issue is just do your best

And pray that God supplies the rest !

 

REVIEW HIS EARTH ( 2017 ) 2017/06/17

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:15 am

There is this message that I hear

The sound plays softly on my ear

The dawn will soon reach to the skies

With all its glory of sunrise.

The day is coming bright and new

Anxious to share her light with you

Our world awaits each new rebirth

God daily does review His earth !

 

 

SWEET GOODNIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/16

I’ve watched the snowflakes filter down

And heard the rain pelter the ground

I’ve seen the stars zip cross the sky

While clouds above are flying by.

I’ve felt the wind rush through the air

As autumn helped her trees go bare

The summer rains are fresh and clear

And hum a song the birds can hear.

The world’s in tune, the season’s bright

Tis soon to bid all sweet goodnight !

The early stillness fills the air

With signs of calm we all may share

Oh shall our Lord in truth forbear

And cram each day with love to spare !

 

 

TRIUMPH O’ER DEFEAT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/14

This world is crashing all around

Please tell us if you hear the sound

The thunder roars above our head

We cannot hear what e’er’s been said

There still is time left to escape

We need locate our hero’s cape.

Oh Lord we seek some help down here

The path ahead looms dark and drear

Please send us aid on winged feet

So we may triumph  o’er defeat !

Oh Hercules, great Hercules come sit awhile with me

Please tell me the story of how strong Atlas set you free

I sure could use a hero who would be as grand as you

To save me from trouble the way that heroes often do.

I know about your labors and how it all came to be

I’d like to hear the story of your ancient history

It doesn’t matter where we’ll meet or whether near or far

I would be glad to shake the hand of such a rising star !

Sometimes my dear, the world we know

Is not the one we’d like to show

Sometimes coditions are not clear

As we are caught in doubt or fear

Please help us Lord fine tune our lives

In manner kind where goodness thrives !

I’m told  that justice is quite blind

In all the truths that man does find

She is the judge who may deceive

But yet the one most will believe !

How sad that she must blinded be

Throughout the world’s vast infamy

Unfaithful to her name indeed

And traitor to her precious creed !

There are some days I still recall

When all my babies were quite small

They laughed a lot and cried some too

Midst pillows, quilts, scissors and glue.

The kitchen floor, their happy place

With lessons and great playing space

It was the classroom served them best

That through the years withstood each test.

I relish now the times we had

When all were young, not yet a lad

So full of hope who could forget

And nothing left to hold regret !

 

 

 

PURE FANTASY ( 2017 )

I loved my father I sure did

That is a fact I never hid

I wonder what he’d think of me

If he were here today to see.

With all the years that he’s been gone

Seems now to be a time too long

I wonder how we two might greet

If ever we should chance to meet ?

Well that is just pure fantasy

Though I sure wish that it could be !

Oh mighty owl high in my tree

I pray you do not pressure me

I’m not prepared for your bad news

Luck is the thing that I could use.

There are some stories I have heard

About your wisdom and your word

How you instill a certain fear

In all of those who dare to hear.

Please help me out sir, if you can

For I am born of mortal man

My needs are small, my chances few

I sure would like some help from who ?

 

SWEET MEMORIES ( 2017 ) 2017/06/07

Now I have lived quite a long time

In varied places and other clime

And learned that one must try to fit

Into each spot that’s part of it.

When but a child, the horse and cart

Is how our travel had its start

Next came the Ford all black and square

While in the rear its trunk was there.

Those skinny tires were truly sad

I cannot count the flats we had

Oh for those days that are long gone

Sweet memories my heart dwells on !

 

YULETIDE CHEERS ( 2017 ) 2017/06/06

How sweet it is to greet each day

To wake each morn in peace and pray,

We thank you Lord for one more chance

To fill our days with life’s romance.

Who can be sure which season’s best

The springtime is so full of zest

While summer grabs our fantasy

It’s packed with much frivolity.

The fall rocks with its sounds and song

Until brisk winter comes along

But most can’t wait till snow appears

When all are caught in Yuletide cheers !

Wake up, wake up, let’s give a cheer

The son of God’s expected here

We know He’s coming any day

Our job is to prepare His way

Look up, look up unto the skies

Expect it soon,our grand surprise !

 

 

THIS OR THAT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/03

There’s often a thought that I have had

That life’s not clearly all good or bad

And sometimes trauma gets in the way

Like visions we’ve had that go astray.

Tis foolish to think we’re of one mind

For this world consists of every kind

The short and tall or the lean and fat

Those who prefer either this or that,

Only time will tell where all this ends

We can be enemies or make friends !

 

MY LIFES LENGTH ( 2017 )

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:36 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Be still my heart, I hear your beat

And from my forehead to my feet

The numbness reaches to my toes

Tis strange the way  this feeling grows.

At times my heart seems in my throat

I think that I could almost float

The fear it rises, comes and goes

When will this end, nobody knows.

But God’s here standing by my side

He holds my hand, He is my ride

I know that He is still my strength

However long be my lifes length !
