Now I have lived so many years

Years filled with hope and thick with tears

Times when I thought that I was done

And others that were full of fun.

I’ve known the wars and tragedy

And lost those who were dear to me

I left my heart on foreign shore

For those that I shall see no more.

Sometimes  I’ve wondered how I could

Because my heart’s not made of wood

My thanks to God, I’ve come this far

I’m battle weary but unscarred.

I sense that I’ve withstood the test

And hope I’ve given all my best

The end for sure draws ever near

I face my God but not with fear !

 

AMEN.

This world lies cloaked in veils of white

That floated down all through the night

The morning woke to wond’rous sight

All layered like ice cream delight.

The air so crisp, it filled each room

And chased away old winter’s gloom

Let’s pray the laughter will resume

As happy smiles begin to bloom !

The sun it rises in the sky

Preparing to bid morn goodbye

The day progresses faster now

Soon twilight will appear somehow.

The sun does sink beyond the trees

The moon it rises with dark’s ease

The stars above sparkle and shout

Tis now the time for faith devout !

Of all our days now passing by

That bring us closer to the end

With standards that our faith apply

To witness and to be a friend,

This is the method each must try

To God above, a message send .

What ere Your will, we shall rely

Upon You Lord, we all depend

For all are Yours and as we cry

Without Your love, we cannot mend !

 

 

 

NO CHOICES ( 2019 )

Regarding all life’s pain and ache

I’ve found my heart close to a break

Select a path which each must choose

And for this once walk in my shoes

The complex part aft all’s been done

Is sadness that does one o’ercome.

However long this life may be

There’s but one judge of thee and me.

Tis true for those who’ve gone away

There is no option leave or stay !

 

DO TAKE CARE ( 2019 ) 2019/01/27

Oh hear the sounds that fill the air

Of children laughing everywhere

The glist’ning snow keeps falling down

Windblown to cover all the ground.

E’er softly while they drift and blow

O’er scenes observed now cloaked in snow

If you should wish to venture there

Dress warmly and please do take care !

There are these photos on the wall

Of folks I barely know at all

There’s a few I had never met

And others that I shan’t forget.

Familiar faces from the past

All precious images that last

As life once was, grateful to see

When all were young and used to be !
