HERE’S MY HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/07/31

Feelings of old pull at my heart

As I’m praying my life must start

Too long have I been pausing here

While waiting for love to appear

By now I am expecting nought

For in the process dreams get caught.

I’ve wished so hard to find the way

To take a chance and longer stay

Well here’s my heart, please help it heal

Teach me God’s love and how to feel !

Hail to our heroes great or small

Thanks for safety they bring us all

And here’s to those who sacrifice

To make our lives comfy and nice

Kudoes  all who save this nation

Giving cause for celebration.

The  warriors who braved the fight

And share with us the country’s might

May God bless them and keep them safe

Do to their actions  we have faith

For after  all,  the  same as we

They follow rules that keep us free !

Can you see the clouds all drifting by

While summer days, they do swiftly fly

The wings of time quickly fade away

Leaving shadows of lost yesterday

With those memories we shall recall

We have entered into shades of fall.

Past the windows of the mind we’ll see

Sweet beginnings of our victory

As the church bells toll for me and you

And the adventures we have been through

We shall face  tomorrow hand in hand

Prepared to enter Forever Land !

 

 

OUR GOOD FRIEND ( 2019 ) 2019/07/28

Seems life has been a timeless one

So full of gladness, joy and fun

Along the way there’s been some pain

T’was part of lifetime’s  growth and gain

Oft I’ve  wondered  what it’s about

If I should laugh or cry or shout

It is a choice that we’ve all made

With circumstance let’s pray won’t fade

Now here we are at this road’s end

At last with God who’s our good friend !

A heart so full  it cannot  breathe

The gift of love from God received

A joy  we all  hope to  believe

With  goals we may at last achieve !

 

 

 

LIFE’S LENGTH ( 2019 ) 2019/07/25

I had a talk with myself today

Hoping to find a much better way

To cope with life and its ups and down

Learn to be happy and lose your frown

Take a moment and rethink your goal

Deep down inside your heart and your soul.

Be slow to anger, avoid the strife

Try to be pleasant most of your life

Remember the Lord, He is your strength

And is with you for all your life’s length !

 

ALL ETERNITY ( 2019 )

So often that I’ve wished to be

The star upon your Christmas tree

A candle on your birthday cake

And privy to each wish you make.

I prayed quite hard that you and I

Would be together by and by

And now my world is part of yours

You’re my umbrella when it pours.

There is  a  God who watches o’er

His children that He does adore

I’m positive He loves us all

And picks us up ere we should fall

I’m sure He knew that we might be

In  love for  all  eternity !

Now you and I have been around

Among these feelings we have found

Though they are not of wide import

Somehow we’ve managed to have caught

This glow that captures happiness

And triumphs love o’er great success

For life is more than what it seems

It’s smiles and hopes and all our dreams !

 

 

 

 

 

TOO GREAT A COST ( 2019 ) 2019/07/23

Can it  be  I  hear an  alarm

The world we knew has lost its charm

It’s upside down and  turned  around

Looks like we  all are  losing ground

While  terra firma seems so grand

Society  destroys  the  land

We need take care  before we’re lost

Our carelessness  too  great a cost !

Oh blessed Lord, help me to find

The path that does to heaven wind

I want to aid and clear the way

For all of those who wish to stay

I can’t believe the time grows near

The day of judgement soon is here !

I lost my heart  when I was young

To  Jesus, Lord,  through hymns we’d sung

The  music touched me to my soul

To be  with God became my goal.

Throughout the years I’ve wondered why

These  hymnal verses make me cry

The  beauty that is  God’s to give

Shall  in our hearts  forever live !

 

 

 

 

HOW MUCH I CARE ( 2019 ) 2019/07/20

A little bit of humor,  her smile to show she’d dare

The sound of laughter on our ears floating in the air

A tiny  piece of heaven for  every one to share

Today’s my mother’s birthday and oh, how much I care !

 

QUIET SURPRISE ( 2019 )

Oh little lamb you are so sweet

With wooly coat and cloven feet

This gift from God to all who care

A gentle lamb its peace will share

When Christ was born in history

The sheep and lambs were there to see.

These animals that will not fight

And cannot sleep all through each night

Will herd themselves in a close space

They’ll stay together, face to face

And in the morning when you  rise

They’ll greet you in quiet surprise !

 

NEVER END ( 2019 ) 2019/07/19

The day is gray and full of gloom

There’s not a  rainbow in my room

The sun  itself has hid  away

Refusing to come out and play

The air is  heavy and  morose

It’s  hard to breathe and ever close !

Perhaps the weather will perk up

Before it is our time to sup

We’ll take a glass of  wine or  two

Remembering  our  rendezvous

And ask the Lord to help us  spend

One evening that may never end !

 

 

SLIPPING AWAY ( 2019 ) 2019/07/18

It seems  my life is  slipping  away

The  pull gets stronger  day after day

How  shall one  decide  which  way to go

Is there  a clue we  have need  to know

What  has  happened  to  ” home  of the  free ”

An  example  of  true  liberty ?

The chaos that  reigns  over our land

That used  to be this  nation  so grand

Became a  faction we  have  to chase

Hard  as we  may to change or  erase

Whatever  prayers that  need to  be said

Do say  them now  before we  are dead !

I  hear the sound of  running  feet

It fills my heart with pride  replete

Midst noise  of children in the  street

And all  their  antics with  each  feat

They’ve  not yet  learned to be  discreet

Reminding  all  how  time is  fleet !

 

ONE ACCORD ( 2019 )

All of life’s good things come to an end

Please have no fear, oh my dearest friend,

As you and I have known far too long

In the scheme of time, where we belong.

I oft wonder where the days have gone

With all of those we’ve counted upon

Let us say a prayer and thank our Lord

Keep body and mind with one accord  !

 

REJOICE IN PEACE ( 2019 ) 2019/07/15

The feelings that this season brings

Much like the songs God’s nature sings

Filling the air with scents and smells

That to us  all her  story  tells

While life, enhanced along the way,

Keeps growing better day by day

And helping us rejoice in peace

Before we meet our souls’ release !

 

SWEET DREAMS ( 2019 ) 2019/07/14

The sun is fading in the west

At twilight time it’s oft the best

The colors all a vibrant scene

With sprays of magic in between.

How wonderful each evening seems

A part of all our finest dreams

So off to sleep as even falls

Ere mystery of nightfall calls !

 

 

 

 

THE GOOD FAIRY ( 2019 ) 2019/07/13

If I were high up in the sky

What is it that my eyes would spy

Lots of rooftops affording space

To pigeons, gulls, all birds apace

With other havens to be found

Where they are safer than on ground.

I am so glad to be alive

And able to help birds survive

Supplying all those old stale buns,

Kitchen scraps along with bread crumbs

Tis how it is I’m known to be

Bird feeder and their good fairy !

 

 

A NARRATIVE ( 2019 ) 2019/07/12

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:05 am
Tags: , , , , ,

When I was young and words were few

Seems that I knew just what to do

I’d  “ape” the sounds  that I had heard

Turned out that each was but a word.

Soon I was there upon the stage

At rather quite an early age

With words and syllables to speak

Like some enchanted childhood freak.

I never thought  back in those days

That I’d wind up in high school  plays

I learned to sing and tap dance too

With  lessons from  the age of two.

Quite  long  I’d been an only child

Forever  charming and  beguiled

With discipline supplied on call

And kisses shared with every fall.

Today we miss what used to be

Safe childhood and security

Our faith is  great it’s  taught us this

All  lives were  meant to share God’s  bliss !

 

 

 

 

 

THE GAME OF POLITICS ( 2019 ) 2019/07/11

There is a small refuge one may find

To grant us all  some peace of mind

The sight  observed is  disarrayed

Too many games are  being played.

While  all those values that we’ve known

By winds of  change are  being blown

Who can be  sure our  world survives

This  challenge now as it  revives ?

 

 

UNDERHAND ( 2019 ) 2019/07/10

The dreams  we  knew when we were small

To be  quite true,  who can recall

These days long gone,  like those forgot

Midst times  that we remember not  ?

There are some hours passed in content

Twixt  those that were uncaring spent

A  myriad  of  loving  thought

That  fills our lives with lessons taught.

Shall  we admit  our passions  loss

Or  ignore bad  behavior’s  cost,

What  will  it  take to  understand

Too  much of life  is  underhand ?

 

I’D TRAVEL FAR ( 2019 ) 2019/07/09

I love You Lord, You are my strength

For You I’d go to any length

No distance is too far for me

Because You’re my eternity !

 

DECISIONS ( 2019 ) 2019/07/08

I  find myself  alone  at last

With memories of times long passed

Regrets  and sorrows  I can’t lose

And if I’ve choice,  some I won’t choose.

Days when my heart reached for the sky

As all my dreams did upward fly

And life had opened up the door

That held my hopes forevermore.

Alas those dreams did disappear

To fill my life with cautious fear

I’ve little strength left to help fight

Without God’s aid to do what’s right !

 

 

 

HEARTSTRINGS ( 2019 ) 2019/07/07

I wish I were a  child  again

If  only to  remember when

We both were young, so long ago

And life was our own picture show.

We laughed and loved, it was such fun

For us  our world had just begun

Each moment  held a new surprise

It warmed our hearts and teared our eyes.

I’m  sorry  that it didn’t  last

But left  behind  its storied past

To still  tug on these old heartstrings

With sadness  that  forever clings !

 

WHAT MATTERS ? ( 2019 ) 2019/07/06

It doesn’t matter what you say

But what you do with every day

What kind of pattern’s left behind

What is it that you seek to find ?

How many burdens can you lift

How do you use your earthly gift,

What kind of friendship do you share

What will you do to show you care ?

 

 

HEART AND HEAD ( 2019 ) 2019/07/04

I hear the whistle  on the track

It  seems to signal  “hurry  back”,

So  many  indications  sound

That help us to get all around

A  whistle blows,  a bell may ring

Birds  in the trees,  their voices sing

There is a  message  to be  heard

Tis  time to  treasure every  word

Be  ready to  accept the  call

We  know that  pride  precedes a fall

Take  care to  listen to  what’s said

And love  your God  with heart and head !
