NO GREATER COST ( 2019 ) 2019/08/31

I  see  the  patterns on  the wall

Of  where the rays of  sun do fall

Tis only  with a  mild constraint

One thinks about the fading  paint

But rather  all the joy  we find

When  sunlight flickers  through the mind

And raises  spirits  sometimes lost

To heights  without a  greater cost !

My dearest boy  what can I say

Just how I  miss you every day

Your happy laugh,  your  smiling face

Uneven jog and  rapid pace.

Your energy and  constant chat

A lot of this,  a bit of that,

In all  those years I  never knew

A single thing you  could not do.

Your interest  in those about

Made you a student  most devout

I never  saw you  fall apart

So sure of mind  and strong  of heart !

To those I’ve known  and loved before

Whose  memories my heart has stored

Here in the  reaches of my mind

Midst  joy and  feeings ever  kind,

Remember that  I’ll miss you all

And  pray the Lord is at your call

While  angels spread  their wings above

And  bathe you in God’s constant love !

 

 

 

 

 

SEEKING DREAMS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/28

How grand  is it to  seek one’s dream

Far better than  it mayhaps  seem

For dreams are  wishes not yet true

Without a boost  from  me or you.

Tis  quite okay  to ponder why

Some dreams may  fade and  often die

Perhaps  that strength required to win

Needs faith in God  to help begin !

 

 

 

 

THE WORD ( 2019 ) 2019/08/27

How simple all our lives might be

If wrapped in God’s security

So we could make the truth our goal

And bury  lies in some  vast  hole.

T’would  save us  all from Satan’s reach

And to the world a lesson teach

That all may know of God’s intent

And to our lives danger prevent !

 

GUARD OUR DAYS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/26

There is a  shadow that we fear

Its size  increasing year by year

It towers o’er our  greatest aim

And poses  threats to  God’s good name,

The world  appears to welcome all

Who  answer to old  Satan’s call

While sadly,  they may do his will

Until  their lives  at last are still.

Oh Lord  above, please bring us peace

From evil’s  grip  grant us release,

Help us  accept Your quiet  ways

Increase our love and  guard our days !

 

 

LOOK UP, LOOK UP ( 2019 ) 2019/08/25

The sky is full of  bits of cloud

With some that  fairly shout aloud

They gather with each wind that blows

In shapes both  recognized or posed.

So like  an army  on the move

That does its best to heav’n improve

And  paints us  pictures way up high

To keep  us focused  on God’s sky !

 

 

 

STAND UP AND LEAD ( 2019 ) 2019/08/24

The years  have been passing,  one by one

Since this world we  live in  has begun

Now that’s a  longtime by  anyone’s gauge

Getting us  all to  setup  the  stage.

So now  here we  are ready to go

Grasping  our dreams  and  hoping  to grow,

Give  us a boost and  help us succeed

Grant us the  strength to standup and lead !

 

 

 

A HURRICANE ( 2019 ) 2019/08/23

There is a noise I hear so clear

Of chaos ringing on my ear

Machinelike thumping banging round

External scraping on the ground,

The buzz of saws and screeching tires

A twisted mass of falling wires,

Oh what a sight this morn has brought

As city streets in storm are caught !

 

 

PATHS IN THE SAND ( 2019 ) 2019/08/22

There is this sadness I can’t shake

Sometimes I feel my heart shall break

I’ve trod so many  paths to find

Some place where fears safely unwind.

Since I have been a little child

With conscience and a manner mild

I’ve tried to be my whole life through

To all my hopes and dreams true blue.

Somehow that’s never quite enough

Because life’s road is long and tough

The battle wages on and on

With only sand to build upon !

 

 

 

 

I LOVE ANGELS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/21

I have  met an angel in  my dreams

Who’s more helpful than an angel seems

All shapes and sizes is how they come

Short and tall, while slim or stout are some.

An  angel is a  child  of the Lord

Whose aim is true and of God’s accord

I’d  love an angel for  my best friend

Cause they’ll be there till the very  end !

My heart flies high, it has grown wings

My soul so free that now it sings

Strains of music to teach us dance

Each moment brings a new romance.

The world round me is full of joy

With happiness one needs employ

However long that we are free

May God bless all we chance to be !

 

 

 

TRY AGAIN ( 2019 ) 2019/08/19

As I  reflect on  years  gone  by

And all the  times  I’ve said  goodbye

To  those faces  I have  adored

With so  much feeling that  I’ve stored

In the  recess of my  best part

The center of my  loving  heart.

Hold on,  hold on,  we’re not yet  done

There is lots  more that is to  come

Open your arms  and your  heart too

Because  your best  is up to  you !

 

 

 

 

MAGIC PILL (2019 ) 2019/08/18

Tags: , , , , ,

I’ve  often  wondered  what it  is  I’d do

If I  had the  chance to  begin anew

I’m  not so sure that I should venture there

Without someone Special  willing to care,

For life on  one’s own  can be a bit much

Especially if you have  lost your touch

How I do  wish that tomorrow may  bring

Another day with a sweet song to sing

To open  my eyes and  give me the will

To reach out to God for His magic pill !

 

 

 

 

 

 

NO REGRETS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/17

Do you  know why I’m missing  you

From early morn till  nightfall too

I   cannot bear you are not  here

Please bundle up,  get back in gear.

The sky is  falling,  have you heard

My heart hangs onto  every word

Tis true, I  shan’t see you again

But no  regrets,  remember when !

 

TO FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES DEPARTED FROM MY LIFE

 

TO OPEN DOORS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/16

Seems  I’ve not  known the   comfort  of

A world  steeped in God’s  peace and love

There’s ne’er a day to  pass us by

Without  excuse for one to try

I’ve wished so long to understand

It takes more than a sleight of hand.

We need some hope that we may win

A fair chance to  again  begin

Or knowledge where the pitfalls are

Before we  try to  reach  a star

What is it we are  searching for,

God’s  magic touch to open  doors ?

 

 

SEASONS COME AND GO ( 2019 ) 2019/08/15

The scenes of summer quickly fly

Like angel wings across the sky

Reminding all that life is fleet

And full of days both sad and sweet.

The  memories of  yesterday

Sometimes get lost along the way

The seasons come and then they go

For we shall reap as we do sow !

 

 

BEFORE THE END ( 2019 ) 2019/08/14

Can you remember  what it’s like

To spread your wings and feel grown up

When I was but a  tiny tyke

I learned to sip the grownup  cup

And now I’m  old  I can’t excuse

The habits I’ve acquired since  then

I wish  somehow I could refuse

And to be young once more again.

Oh blessed  Lord so much to see

In this new world  of let’s pretend

We’ll try our best to  gracious be

And hold on tight  before the end !

 

 

TOO SOON GONE ( 2019 ) 2019/08/13

The open window invites the breeze

To sashay in from beneath the trees

Take a dance around a room or two

Sharing fresh air between me and you.

Enjoy the night times secret pleasure

Amidst the joys we all do treasure

Remember how fast the seasons fly

Before we each have to bid goodbye

As the nights grow cool before the dawn

And the years we loved are too soon gone !

 

 

OUR SAD CUP ( 2019 ) 2019/08/12

When I was young,  my dad he died

And  left  us so  dried up  inside

There was no way to help explain

The  basic  anguish or  the  pain,

Through all these  years we’ve hid  it well

And  never did  that   sadness  tell

It’s simply there reminding me

Of  all  that life once used to be

It’s too late now, none can catch up

This  heritage is our sad cup !

 

 

 

 

 

SPELL OF DOOM ( 2019 ) 2019/08/11

There are times my pain evinces fears

And burdens life with unwanted tears

Moments  when one is  upended  by

A  lack of concern  or  passersby

Please  help me Lord,  so I may erase

The spell of doom that now clouds my face !

 

 

COME WHAT MAY ( 2019 ) 2019/08/10

Whatever war that has been fought

Tis one more lesson to be taught

For no one wins as each has lost

And every war does have great cost.

Sometimes it takes a lifetime long

To hear the ring of freedom’s song

There is a price that all must pay

To win the battle of the day.

Therefore when lives do meet their end

And each has chosen foe and friend

The choice one makes on that last day

Will stand forever,  come what may !

Oh my dear child, what can I do

To be of aid and help to you

Please tell me what it is you need

I’ll try to follow as you lead.

Tis time for you to stand up tall

Assume your burden ere you fall

Our God is Witness, heed His word

What e’er is spoke we all have heard !

Now  I have  been a child  of  God at  every  blessed  age

And  I have lived  in awe of  Him  through  every  growing  stage

I’ve hoped  and wished and  dreamt that  He will hear my urgent  plea

Oh  gracious  Lord,  I love  You so,  please be  my  destiny !

 

 

SAVE US FROM DISGRACE ( 2019 ) 2019/08/07

There is a madness in the air

I’m ever grateful I’m not there

What is it that these people seek

For all this havoc that they reek.

Our world is drowning all around

With anger that does most confound

If someone doesn’t take the lead

Responding with the proper speed

Who is it that will save this place

And our whole nation from disgrace ?

 

 

WOUNDED WARRIOR ( 2019 ) 2019/08/06

A little child  did pray to God

“Please bring my daddy home to me

Without him here our lives are hard

He fought a war to set us free “.

This message went upon its way

Just hoping  that none will forget

To send that daddy home  to stay

Before their  joy  becomes regret !

Of life revolving around me

Our lives are  full of sadness and things that  have  gone  astray

For who  can  face the  madness  and  the  pain of  yesterday

Oh  Lord,  we do miss  the  dreams that have come and  gone  away

But  who can  bear this  agony  we  live with day  by  day ?
