Of all the joy which I have found

That laughs and weeps and will abound

And as emotions that astound

Too often seem to be compound

The love of God which is unbound

Fills all my days with peace surround !

 

NO CURTAIN CALL ( 2019 ) 2019/05/18

Some memories of long ago

They are still here, they come and go

Without them, how could we move on

For sure, the meaning would be gone.

It’s odd, the thoughts that take us back

Remaining on the proper track

Remembering those days we knew

When all were safe and faith was too.

Opportunity winged on by

With no time left for second try

We’ll have to make the best of all

Because there is no curtain call !

 

 

FIRST LOVE IS FOREVER ( 2019 ) 2019/05/17

There is a tale I wish to share

Bout teenaged feelings, love and care

There was a girl of but fifteen

He was a boy of just eighteen

Each Sunday sharing the church pew

Who can decide what each one knew ?

 

What was it they were thinking of

Because quite soon it looked like love

Though young and silly girls may be

Assured were both she cared for he

He was a lad, handsome and tall

In every way, he seemed her all.

 

On Sunday morn, dad passed the plate

She taught a class, they walked home late

Along the Boulevard they’d chat

They walked and talked of this and that

Soon the young man was her best friend

Perhaps with each their lives they’d spend.

 

Now at this time the world was sick

Young men fought wars in battles thick

That was the year her daddy died

When she felt so alone inside

So many issues war creates

Among those most when faith abates.

 

How could they know before that day

The war would filch their love away

Of all events that I have seen

And all the places I have been

Too precious now those days bygone

That their first love was based upon.

 

So sad the pain that war does bring

As all their dreams took flight and wing

Thus never to return that way

Not then or any other day

Too bad this story has no end

No memory nor any friend !

 

 

 

 

TIME FOR CHOICE ( 2019 ) 2019/05/16

When I was young, my world brand new

There were so many things to do

So much to learn with time to share

With excess and enough to spare

Well, things have changed, it’s not the same

The world we knew now plays a game

I get discouraged, don’t you too

Have you decided what to do ?

It seems as though we have no choice

Until we learn to grow a voice !

 

AMEN.

Oh robin red, in your best suit

You loudly sing and look so cute

I wish I knew how to convey

The joy I’ve felt with you today.

You bring me hope the gloom can’t hide

The warmth I feel for you inside

Your perky song and boldened ways

Bring happiness to all my days !

The wind  is  in the  willow,

………..A chill is in the breeze

The babes are in the nest and

…………Rest safely as you please !

Days come and go, they slip away

To morph into some yesterday

Where yesterdays forgotten lie

Reminding all of past goodbye.

Too sad that we cannot replace

Those memories of last embrace

As o’er the years of each regret

Somehow the pain we can’t forget.

Our vision dims, the picture fades

And we are here left with charades

That echo pain and misery

Of loving days that used to be !
