There is a mystery I know

About our Lord who loves us so

He’s kind and true and loving too

A model of Christian virtue.

He oversees our daily lives

And for our freedom ever strives

Oh what I’d give to see His face

Gladly accepting His embrace.

But better still I want to be

A part of His vast company

And sit there waiting at His feet

Now this would make my life complete !

 

 

 

TO VICTORY ( 2018 ) 2018/02/27

I hear the sound of distant drums

Too soon the problem this way comes

Let’s gird our loins and standup tall

We’ll brace our backs against the wall.

Too late we learn there’s no redress

It’s not that easy, I confess

Tis better far to peaceful be

And smoke the pipe to victory !

I cannot halt to hear the sound

Of all God’s creatures shuffling round

The night’s so full of shadows stark

I feel the fear here in the dark

Each movement that I note betrays

The consequence of former days

I wait upon the Lord of Night

To lead me to the dawn’s daylight !

The silence falls upon my ear

It seems to be all I can hear

Each sound reverberates with fear

The day of grace is inching near !

Oh Lamb of God, I come to Thee

The bastion of our liberty

I beg of You to set me free.

Untie my wings and let me fly

Into the reaches of the sky

Ere pride and love have passed me by !

FOR GOD ALONE ( 2018 ) 2018/02/23

There stands an elm outside my door too scarred and old

A magnificent stanchion mighty to behold

This aged tree, true remnant of a long ago

Attests to all, the verity of what we know

God’s works are beauteous and marvelous to see

Enjoy it all for God alone can make a tree !

 

EMPTY GRAVE ( 2018 ) 2018/02/21

I hear a tune it croons to me

A half forgotten memory

The vestige of what used to be

When you and I were young and free.

The time’s  long gone, it passed us by

Too late to query, wonder why

The heart remembers so do I

Tis the moment to bid goodbye.

The blessed Lord who guides our way

And taught us each from day to day

His wisdom reaches out to save

This lonely soul from empty grave !

 

 

 

 

MY MOM ( 2018 )

Not long ago in this same place

The last time that I saw her face,

Today’s the day that I recall

The darkness of death’s knell did fall.

How sad that we shall never greet

Or hug and kiss when e’er we meet

I am so sorry that you’ve gone

We’ll catchup soon, it won’t be long !

 

HER LAST KISS ( 2018 )

Today’s the day I lost my friend

It seems the pain will never end

There is no way I can replace

Her kind and gentle smiling face.

She made me feel all warm inside

I was her precious joy and pride

It seems that we were meant to be

Best friends through out eternity.

Well here I am, it’s still the same

This hurtful, ugly nagging pain

I guess I’ll learn to live with this

The memory of her last kiss !

 

WHERE AM I GOING ( 2018 )

Where is it that I find myself

I’ve wound-up here upon the shelf

As obsolete as one can be

Just waiting for eternity !

I see the mist of morning glide

Across the window pane outside

It’s frosty glaze has slipt away

To seek another hideaway

Her tiny pellets drift about

They look to scout some other route

I wonder what each journey finds

As through our lives the raindrops wind !

 

THE WINTER WIND ( 2018 )

The wind comes rustlng through the trees

And whistles wildly mongst the breeze

It echoes up and down the streets

Embracing everyone it meets

The cool night air is muscling in

Tis time to take it on the chin

The Ides of March will soon be here

Lets try to keep our options clear

The winter wind must fade away

Before the spring will come to play !

 

 

HEARTBEAT ( 2018 )

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:43 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

There is a spot close in between

The here and now and what has been

We take our place, we fall in line

And thank our stars we turn out fine

A tumble down, a caution there

A humble thought, an anxious prayer

I love you Lord, I always will

Until my heart at last is still !

 

GOD’S GRACE ( 2018 )

Oh little one all meek and mild

My dearest, sweetest tiny child

With wonderment and joy and grace

You light the world round your dear face !

I’ll try my love, remember well

In times to come our story tell

And pray the Lord will gracious be

To guide us through eternity !

 

 

 

BENDED KNEES ( 2018 )

Now here I am, just washed ashore

My spirit shaken, body sore

With life a wreck and purpose blind

What future is there I shall find ?

The path I follow seems so dark

I do not spy the smallest spark

And need your comfort, if you please

I come to you on bended knees !

 

THE WAIT ( 2018 )

Well here I am alone at last

Safe from the winter’s stormy blast

A child of God too soon grown old

Who took the path not paved of gold

And followed Him along His ways

Until the ending of all days

And now I wait to learn the score

Has it been worth the waiting for ?

 

DEPARTURE DATES ( 2018 ) 2018/02/13

My heart is full, my dreams are worn

The days grow short, the nights forlorn

How much longer must we await

As God decides departure dates ?

 

WATCH MY BACK ( 2018 )

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:51 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Sometimes the world seems quite enraged

While I am far from full engaged

With all the trappings we require

To feed our hearts smallest desire.

What’s happened to old fashioned ways

Like the joy of unfettered days

Help me please to stay on the track

I need some one to watch my back !

 

 

IT’S MY DISAPPOINTMENT ( 2018 ) 2018/02/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:27 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There are times when I think of the past

And all of my dreams that failed to  last

I recall quite well what used to be

When life held moments of ecstasy

And a precious love faithful and true

Along with that which was called virtue,

And I ask of myself what comes next

There’s no hope left for some grand pretext !

 

 

GOD’S LOVING CARE ( 2018 ) 2018/02/10

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 10:43 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I’d like to think that freedom’s free

Available to all who see

This land of opportunity

I want to dream that freedom bides

Throughout this place and on all sides

Where tolerance and truth resides.

I must believe that faith is real

Not just an effort to conceal

Hypocrisy of what we feel

I need to trust God will be there

To see and hear our every prayer

And keep all in His loving care !

 

 

THE FUTURE’S DEAD ( 2018 ) 2018/02/09

There was a time we all felt good

The way united people should

We worked together like a pack

I prayed we’d get our mojo back

But all this stress and anger too

Is something that we must pass through

I see no clear path straight ahead

Just seems as though the future’s dead !

The winds of March are queueing up

Before life brews its final cup

The tedium of time is here

Each destination looms unclear

Perhaps tomorrow each may learn

The heritage that we have earned ?

 

WON’T BE SO BAD ( 2018 ) 2018/02/07

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:47 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

I’d like to think this world we know

Was full of sweetness years ago

To tell the truth, I’m not so sure

This place was kind or love so pure ?

But here am I waiting in line

I pray dear God I’ll turn out fine

And all those wishes that I’ve had

Well most of them won’t be so bad !

 

IT’S NOT EASY ( 2018 ) 2018/02/06

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:40 am

Once long ago I knew a life

Which proffered me all that it could

As daughter, mother and a wife

In happiness with aspects good

Seems it appears after all that

I find myself left derelict

And wearing an indifferent hat

My days no longer kept that strict !

 

 

 

COMFORTING ( 2018 ) 2018/02/05

I’m waiting for the waning light

To join the nothings of the night

As quiet settles over me

Increasing life’s tranquility

The silence hovers still and stark

How comforting I find the dark !

 

PRAISE GOD ( 2018 ) 2018/02/04

There was a land all thought was best

Throughout the world it aced each test

But arrogance got in the way

And ignorance ruled o’er the day.

Sometimes it pays to silence keep

Let others dig the hole that deep

Learn to be thankful, grateful too

Praise God, He will be there for you !

 

LIFE’S DEBRIS ( 2018 ) 2018/02/03

Tis true that I would like to know

Which way the busy winds do blow

And how steep will the waves all be

Crashing in the cold winter’s sea ?

Will the tide come rushing ashore

Just as the moon rises once more

To greet its eventide asea

Amidst life’s crisis and debris ?

 

REMEMBERING ( 2018 ) 2018/02/02

The beauty of this world so much beyond compare

The joy of God’s magnificence we’re meant to share,

The pleasure to be seen by all of those who care

Remembering His love it always will be there !
