KINDNESS ( 2019 ) 2019/06/29

Oh how I wish the world could be

A place that’s bathed in sympathy

Imagine how much joy we’d see

If all were cloaked in pleasantry ?

 

AIR, EARTH AND SKY ( 2019 )

A little bird whispered to me

The  secret  of  eternity

Have faith in God and trust His word

It is the best that all have heard.

We cannot doubt, we must believe

Have hope in Him, we shall achieve

Each has a goal, no two alike

From aged man to little tyke.

Like every flower that will bloom

With varied scent to fill each room

Or all the wings that fly on high

To reach our Lord in distant sky !

 

 

ONE LAST LOOK ( 2019 ) 2019/06/28

I find myself out on a limb

Is there some one to let me

How shall I save myself on earth

What is the value of my worth ?

I know that God is always there

And that He hears my every prayer

I’ve tried so hard to do what’s right

Each morning, noon and through the night.

My clock is  running  out it  seems

Like all my hopes and all my dreams

The time is now to close the book

I wish to take this one last look !

 

 

 

 

 

 

EVERY GIRL AND BOY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/27

A special bit of heaven came knocking on my door

And sounded so familiar, I’m sure we’d met before

Oh my dearest child, you are a wonderment to me

Please come visit me again whenever you are free

I pray that you will share all the laughter and the joy

That God does offer gladly to every girl and boy !

 

 

 

NOAH’S FAITH ( 2019 ) 2019/06/26

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:07 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

The storm,  it thunders all around

With ne’er a silence to  be found

The  light’ning   crashes in the  dark

Illuminating  all  in  spark

Its odor makes the air smell sweet

As rivers flood through every street

I  wonder if  old  Noah  feared

The wrath of God when it appeared,

Those moments when the clouds did burst

Do you  believe  that  he felt cursed

Or was his faith  in God so strong

He held no fear his whole life long ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

GOD’S COMMAND ( 2019 ) 2019/06/25

Oh my dearest angel wherever you may be

My arms still long to hold  you ever close to me

The years may come and go and never shall we meet

Until the final day,  perhaps on  heaven’s  street

And if that  day can’t happen, I shall understand

That all I have prayed for falls under God’s command !

 

AMEN.

 

 

ASK GOD’S HELP ( 2019 ) 2019/06/24

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:54 am

The dreams we dream may disappear

As lives mature and change each year

Becoming hard to carry on

When hopes and fears are set upon

As lives are left in disarray

When problems all their faults display.

The foolishness of life may be

The  wealth  of  insecurity

Or lack of faith in fellow man,

Failure to do the best we can

We must try harder to succeed

And ask God’s help to fill our need !

 

 

 

 

EQUALITY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/23

The rain it tumbles to the ground

There’s not a dry spot to be found

The wind it whips among the trees

Embracing  all the sodden leaves

The morning’s light turns into dark

The air about is still and stark

While clouds do pass and fade away

In  their  circuitous  display,

The seasons change from day to night

Without a  single goal  in sight

How simple all our lives could  be

Accepting  God’s equality !

 

 

THE IMPURE ( 2019 ) 2019/06/22

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:09 am
Tags: , , , , ,

My heart is full, it overflows

Clear from my fingers to my toes

Devoid of malice, free of fear

Anticipating one more year.

I think of Noah and his clan

For this is how our lives began

His holy cause for one and all

Because he answered his God’s call.

I sometimes think we’ve lost our way

With Satan’s help from angels stray

Truth is that I cannot be sure

Who does embrace all these impure !

 

GOD’S SONG ( 2019 ) 2019/06/21

I know You Lord, You speak to me

With  every  measure  I can see

There from the treetops in the air

From rooftops, birds now perching there,

On  every branch in  every tree

Each bird sings his own song to me.

How beautiful  this  life does seem

With all God’s creatures in each scene !

 

 

 

 

 

FOR YOU AND ME ( 2019 ) 2019/06/20

I love You Lord, please take my hand

And lead me to the Promised Land

Show me the path to Latter Days

That I may follow in Your ways

Each child that listens soon will hear

God’s loving Message on his ear

Trust in the Lord, He will not fail

The world is His, each hill and vale

Like every thing the eye can see

Is made by Him for you and me !

 

AMEN.

This man reviled by all the press

Who came on board to fix the mess

His name will live in history

He saved this nation  for the free

And time alone shall tell the tale

So many stories to regale

Have faith that in the end we’ll see

His name will mark our victory !

 

 

 

HERE AND BEYOND ( 2019 ) 2019/06/18

I often think  it’s sad that we

Must live with each  infirmity

Yet it may make us stronger now

If we could learn the  why and how

This life  is not a sack of dreams

Filled with a mass of wasted schemes.

It’s real,  it’s here, we  need take care

This is a  concept  all  may share

God offers us a  second chance

To live,  to hope,  to circumstance

It’s  up  to us  to  carry  on

The Lord’s our strength here and beyond !

My hearing has become acute

I hear a flutter on the roof

It sounds like angel wings to me

Accompanied  by symphony

Oh ecstasy, how my heart sings

In unison with angels wings !

 

LOVE PROVIDES ( 2019 ) 2019/06/16

A  garden  is  that  special  place

Where hope and fear meet face to face

Where dreams are made or fall apart

And courage wins when tears depart.

An  island  in a  lifelong  storm

Where each must to their strength perform

A  place of peace  where God resides

And  answers  prayers and love  provides !

 

 

I BELONGED ( 2019 ) 2019/06/15

Oh little  birds you crowd my door

What is  it you  are waiting for

A bit of bread or  cracker crumbs

That from my kitchen table comes

Leftovers  from a  berry  tart

I meant for you right from the start ?

I want to  share my feast with you

The way most thoughtful persons do

The Lord above has taught us this

Some joys in life we must not miss.

Perhaps one  day when I am old

And all my senses have grown cold

You’ll sing to me your old time song

Reminding  me that I belonged !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AN EMPTY CHAIR ( 2019 ) 2019/06/14

Each time that I sit down to eat

I notice there’s an unfilled seat

It’s been like that for quite awhile

I don’t feel ready yet to smile.

I wish your laugh and wisdom’s word

Were still the pleasantries I’d heard

For times have changed, you’re gone away

I miss you more, day after day !

Who’d ever guess that I should be

Alone at last upon life’s sea,

I never thought that I would share

My dinners with an empty chair !

 

 

GOD’S OPEN DOOR ( 2019 ) 2019/06/13

The sun  comes  peeping o’er the hill

The day is white and  bright and still

Each  morn brings  us another day

Another chance to  thank  and pray.

How  wonderful God’s plan has been

Allowing  all  to  scurry in

We  don’t need any special gift

To help us  smile  or  spirits lift

He’s always there with open door

How can we  ask for any more ?

 

 

 

 

HONOR IS FOREVER ( 2019 ) 2019/06/12

Memories  last  forever, we  can’t  forget

Years  may  disappear  so  much to our regret

There gleaming through a twilight that will not set

If  we  chance remember with  no  ending yet !

 

AMEN.

Oh little lamb you are so sweet

God loves to smell your roasting meat

He’s rather fond of incense too

With scents of flowers red, pink, white, blue

And all the candles that we light

To chase  the darkness of the night.

How  simple  it can  be to show

The proper path  that we must go !

 

 

 

 

HERE LAST NIGHT ( 2019 ) 2019/06/10

When  I was young  and but a child

Our hearts ran free in woodlands wild

I’ve watched our days fade fast  away

As  little  children fail to play.

We  have another purpose now

To  Satan’s wish we  all must bow

What’s happened to our future bright,

It  vanished  silent  here  last night !

 

 

 

GROW WINGS AND FLY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/09

Oh how I wish that we may speak

If I were strong  and not so weak

And had a chance to beg the Lord

That we  might be of one accord

Thus sleep with God and bird, may I

Perhaps one day grow wings and fly ?

 

 

 

SEEKING COMFORT ( 2019 ) 2019/06/08

We love You Lord,  and  beg of You

Give each the strength to see life through,

This  dearth of help that now may be

The  darkest  night we’ll ever see,

Or longest  day we’ll ever know

As in our lives  will  sadness grow.

Because of You,  we’ve traveled  far

To reach the Comfort  that You are !

 

AMEN.

There’s too much to remember, how do we forget

Beginning with December, days of deep regret

But now a battle’s brewing in our own backyard

We’d better pay attention ere it goes too far.

Wake up before it’s over, it will be too late

The demon’s wrapt in culture, please anticipate

Strip them of their power and put them in their place

This is the final hour, uncover their disgrace !

 

BEWARE.

Of  all the  days that  I recall

This  one’s the very  best of all

The day that freedom had its chance

Somewhere  along the coast of France.

Remember well  the days  we knew

An  ugly war that we’d been through

With  moments when we understand

True  life  is not a  sleight-of-hand.

Let’s make the best of what we’ve got

Pray that  we will  forget it not !

 

 

 

 

SACRED MEMORY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/05

This  day to me is  just so real

I  can’t explain  quite how I feel

My heart so full I think  t’will  break

There was so very much at  stake.

Ten thousand lost upon that shore

Who  t’were  not seen  forevermore

My  heart cries out,  I cannot bear

The  deprivation  we did share.

How many dreams were  lost that day

How  many hopes were  snatched away

Oh God above,  please hear this plea

Vouchsafe  this  day of  infamy  !

 

 

 

GRATEFUL PRAISE ( 2019 )

I hear a  warbling  in the brush

And to  my heart it  brings a rush

There is no sound that’s  more complete

Than  nature’s voice ever so sweet.

Our  God communicates with us

In every  way a Parent must

And guides us all to  our best days

Let’s show our  gratitude with praise !

 

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE !

 

 

BLESSING OF HIS LOVE ( 2019 ) 2019/06/04

Of all the words that have been writ

There is but one  that covers it

Of all the feelings man does know

There is but one that all must show

For love it  is that grows and glows

Straight from our minds unto our toes

And brings to each that God-like worth

The blessings of His love on earth !
