THERE IS A DREAM ( 2017 ) 2017/11/30

There is a dream most wish to see

Lasting throughout eternity

A chance to blend both heart and mind

As truth and fantasies unwind

A place of safety and great care

Where hopes and joys are ours to share !

 

STRANGERS ( 2017 ) 2017/11/29

The world today is lacking trust

We take our joys where e’er we must

The hours all seem to melt away

As do the weeks and everyday.

Time flies with wings so swift and fleet

As strangers stroll by on each street

With neither nod nor passing word

No single thought there to be heard.

This lonesome place within the mind

Where memories we’ve left behind

Too late do seek that compromise

Where all one’s dreams are realized !

 

CLEAR THE VIEW ( 2017 ) 2017/11/28

I get so tired of all the pain

How I wish that I could start again

What I’d give to have a chance to be

Someone who lives in a world ache free

But that concept will not fly right now

I need learn to struggle through somehow

While faith in the Lord, a prayer or two

May part the clouds and help clear the view !

Observe the sky, today it’s gray

And changes colors day by day

But now is winter time and so

We can’t be sure what hues will show.

The golden glows of summertime

Do verge upon a scene sublime

I most prefer the plums and pinks

Especially as sundown sinks.

I wonder if the Lord can see

How glorious His sky must be

To all of us who looking up

Adore His overflowing cup ?

 

 

IT’S POSSIBLE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/26

What is it that life offers all

The chance to shape what may befall

A hope to curb our every whim

Control those steps outside the rim

To spend our days pursueing peace

And from all powers find our release

For somehow time gets in the way

When love does steal the heart away !

 

OUR REMEMBER WHEN ( 2017 ) 2017/11/25

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

I’m writing to you just because

Christmas is coming round the bend

It’s time to share it with a friend

Though not so simple as it seems

As Christmas nears it fosters dreams.

It is a season to feel young

With Yuletide carols to be sung

It would be nice if we’d return

To days when candles would be burned

When children small were told the tales

Of magic sleighs that had no sails.

 

The reindeer were believed to fly

Across the reaches of the sky

But let’s pretend a moment more

That elves may work in Santa’s store

It’s true I’ve never seen an elf

Except ceramic on a shelf.

Well never mind, this too shall pass

Like Alice through her looking glass

Until next year, same time, same place

Anticipating your embrace

I pray I’m not too old by then

Forgetting our remember when !

 

ISN’T IT WONDERFUL TO SEE WITH THE HEART OF A CHILD ?

 

 

 

TO HAVE SOMEONE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/24

One lonely heart beats in this breast

Will I find joy in what comes next

Since any move that I chance make

Could mean to me just more heartache ?

I do not think that I shall last

If life does not small pleasures cast

The lonely path is not much fun

Tis better far to have  someone !

 

GOD’S LOVE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/23

The world is full of lonliness

With dark amidst the emptiness

The only  light that still exists

Is that in which God’s love persists !

 

ALMOST EVERYONE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/22

This world’s full of magic, I feel it every day

Truth, I wouldn’t change it for any other way

Along with all its beauty, courage and elan

Like the great white egret that wades amongst the swan.

Seems to me the angels are watching all the fun

Sharing laughs in heaven with almost  everyone !

 

HOW HIGH THE COST ( 2017 ) 2017/11/21

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:47 am

There  is one joy I feel so keen

Sometimes I dream that I’m a queen

Or princess on some hero’s steed

Who came to aid me in my need.

Perhaps I could be Salome

Who charmed old Herod’s sense away

Or Juliet who gave her life

To be  her Romeo’s young wife.

Well all in all, I want to say

I’m feeling somewhat sad today

For all the love it seems we’ve lost

To learn so late, how high the cost ?

 

 

 

THE SAME ( 2017 ) 2017/11/20

There is this thought I entertain

From winter snow to springtime rain

The summer’s warmth, the leaves of fall

Sweet memories we all recall

They fill my heart, my brain implodes

With pleasures set to soon explode.

Oh how I wish that all could see

Our strength in great diversity

The young and old, the halt and lame

The large or small, we are the same !

 

 

CONSEQUENCE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/19

Once was a war, the worst we’d had

With consequence both bad and sad

Most of our men who truly tried

Did all they could before they died !

 

LINCOLN’S ADDRESS TO THE NATION WAS 11/19/1863

 

THAT’S THAT ( 2017 ) 2017/11/18

I relish the thought that God loves me

And ponder o’er this quite carefully

I’ve come to the conclusion that He

Is the boss of all eternity !

 

I LOVE HAPPY ENDINGS ( 2017 ) 2017/11/17

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:39 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I do love happy endings, yes I truly do

That is when our dreams really could be coming true

It is the time for joy and happiness replete

The stars begin to shine and all the world seems sweet

I like to work with others, help them feel the same

Try to be realistic, manipulate no game.

Sometimes we cannot help if dreams do go astray

We simply need to pause to cast our fears away

For God will still be there,  He knows how much we care

He feels our deepest pain when no one’s left to share

He helps us to remember what life’s all about

Seeking our happy ending ere time should run out !

 

 

OUR NUMBERS GROW ( 2017 ) 2017/11/16

This gentle thought does make its way

Into the musings of each day

What is it that our God has seen

As He looks down upon earth’s scene

Can it be that our numbers grow

Who wait on Him to start His show ?

 

 

EMPTY CITY STREETS ( 2017 ) 2017/11/15

The early morning fog begins to clear

I hear each leaf’s staccato on the ear

The wind whips through the clutter at the curb

While seeming to declare, do not disturb

The hollowed silence  of forgotten days

Now echoes through this empty canyoned maze !

 

INVITATION ( 2017 ) 2017/11/14

There is this place so faraway

Where angels and God’s cherubs play

It’s full of dreams and atmosphere

And lots of love and laughs and cheer

A perfect  spot we cannot share

Until our Lord invites us there !

 

 

GOD’S SOLUTION ( 2017 ) 2017/11/13

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:41 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I’ve grown through all these many years or so

It seems there’s really no place left to go

There’s no way yet to thrive in outer space

In truth it’s not  a safe or happy place.

I’d rather be stuck in a cardboard box

Or forced to walk without both shoes and sox

Than sacrifice the pleasures that I’ve known

Among my family and friends at home.

At this stage of life I find I’m confined

By the strings of our love and joy combined

I believe that I’ll simply hang around

Until God’s solution at last is found !

 

REJECT DEFEAT ( 2017 ) 2017/11/12

The sun, it filters through the leaves

Its shadows bouncing off the eaves

Upon the rooftops round about

Seagulls and pigeons thawing out.

The frosty chill of early morn

Gives rise to wishes yet unborn

That men and nature be discreet

Learn how to share, reject defeat !

 

 

AULD LANG SYNE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:29 am
Tags: , , , , ,

True friendship is the kindest thing

It moves the heart to smile and sing

And raises all our hopes and joys

Like birthday gifts and children’s toys.

It’s a blessing that loving shares

To soothe the beast midst worldly cares

For without friends one’s cast aside

Into life’s emptiness outside

To languish wasted on the vine

Without the warmth of auld lang syne !

 

WHICH ERA ( 2017 ) 2017/11/10

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 8:01 am
Tags: , , , , ,

It’s time for all to stop and think

Our world’s been trembling on the brink

The last thing that we need right now

Is someone else’s sacred cow

Another reason to resist

Or confrontation to exist.

We’re not so very far removed

From where our lives were unimproved

The horse and buggy were our ride

While sanitation was outside

And I’m not sure I can be pressed

To choose which era I like best !

 

HAVEN’T A CLUE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/09

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:35 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Sometimes it’s hard to believe God sees

All the troubled souls upon their knees

Like those broken children still confined

To a system that’s both deaf  and blind

And the hungry masses on the road

Have no one there to lighten the load.

Their dreams of glory shrivel and die

As the rest of the world passes by

While you and I don’t know what to do

Please help us Lord, we haven’t a clue !

 

SAVE OUR DREAMS ( 2017 ) 2017/11/08

There is a place where I can see

This nation’s flag wave over me

The flag it flies with colors bright

It is an oh so wondrous sight

And promises this great surprise

To open every stranger’s eyes

Instilling confidence and pride

With love that wells up deep inside

Old Glory may she ever wave

And all our dreams, help us to save !

 

 

 

IT’S ALL WE’VE GOT ( 2017 ) 2017/11/07

What madness does this world possess

That causes all such great distress

What petty nonsense fills our days

We’re sure is nourished by malaise ?

For eons we’ve endured the pain

And fought evil most times in vain

This has become the earth’s sad scourge

There’s no more action one may urge.

Now we are here with shattered dreams

Leftover tears and useless schemes

The best there is, it’s all we’ve got

With chances to succeed or not !

 

BIDE WITH SAINTS ( 2017 ) 2017/11/06

The stars that show in night time sky

Remind us all that God is nigh

Oh such great treasure we can see

That shines through all infinity.

The skies are ageless evermore

A world in which exists no door

There are no limits no restraints

This place where angels bide with saints !

 

ARRIVE TOO LATE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/05

My tears are for the many men

Who never will go home again

Like those who pledged to give it all

In battle’s heat as they did fall.

Oh Lord in Heaven hear my plea

They gave their lives for me and Thee

Their sacrifice was far too great

With rewards that arrive too late !

 

HIS HOLY NAME ( 2017 ) 2017/11/04

There was a child born long ago

It is a story we all know

A sky bathed in celestial light

With one star burning ever bright.

That tiny babe lay mongst the sheep

With angels guarding Him asleep

The heavens knew and marked that place

With holiness time can’t erase.

That baby boy would grow to be

The saviour of humanity

A whole world knows His blessed name

There’s been none else of greater fame !

 

 

WE’VE NO REGRET ( 2017 ) 2017/11/03

Why do we dream, what’s that about

And why is life so full of doubt,

I cannot question, God exists

My trust in Him ever persists  !

This world is all there is  to share

In time with love and hope and care

Though lives of men have limits set

We promise Lord we’ve no regret !
