My life has been a bundle of

Both smiles and tears, laughter and love

Mixed in with all the varied ploys

Of growing up midst foolish joys

It ne’er occured  that I should be

A child of opportunity

Oh how I wish I could have learned

To be grownup and more concerned.

The time has passed, it’s far too late

I guess I’ve missed the starting gate !

 

 

LASTING MEMORIES ( 2018 ) 2018/08/30

When I  reflect  o’er my lifespan

And try hard as I ever can

There are these things I greatly miss

The sweetness of my mother’s kiss,

The pleasure of my father’s smile

He made my life a world worthwhile,

The treasure of each tiny tot

Whose hugs and kisses meant a lot,

Such moments cannot be erased

Nor somehow get to be replaced.

I know all this is from the past

These memories I pray will last !

 

 

THE WINDS OF FALL ( 2018 ) 2018/08/29

The waves they crash upon the shore

The oceans sigh and sometimes roar

The wind blows wild and billows out

Emitting sounds quite like a shout.

It whistles past each stand of trees

Without restrictions, if you please

To wander valiant in the brush

And give each blade of grass a rush.

The gust lends impetus to all

Attentions to this force of fall

The summer’s flown, farewell a must

Tis autumn with its burning lust !

 

ON THE SCENE ( 2018 ) 2018/08/28

I understand the worm and grub

And other insects in the shrub

But there is one great mystery

What can mosquitos do for me ?

Of all the vermin in the world

At which insecticides are hurled

Along with lice and flies and such

Mosquitos bother me too much !

I wish I knew just what to do

Since they escape my swatter’s “shoo”

I truly hope that heaven’s clean

And void of vermin on the scene !

 

 

 

EASE THE BLINDNESS ( 2018 ) 2018/08/27

I find it painful down memory lane

And prefer not pass this way again

Wounds of the past are too slow to heal

As all our weaknesses are revealed.

The courage it takes to stand up tall

May be the greatest challenge of all

We must believe God is always there

To cushion our falls and truly care

He leads us through darkness into light

And eases the blindness with His sight !

 

FADE AWAY ( 2018 ) 2018/08/25

There’s little time for childish games

As now most face true adult aims

The chances lessen day by day

For those who choose a calmer stay.

More stamina is what we need

If all God’s values we pay heed

Remember life is here to stay

It’s only we who fade away !

 

REMAIN TRUE ( 2018 )

There is an echo that we hear

It speaks to all both loud and clear

Remember for each time we fall

The will one needs to stand up tall

Lies in the grace of God above

Who showers us with selfless love

While all we’re asked our lifetime through

Is to His virtue, remain true !
