SERENITY ( 2019 ) 2019/09/30

The sky is blue  without a cloud

Hear all the birds  chirp out aloud

The air is fresh  and clearly sweet

There are no strangers  on the street,

A subtle breeze  blows all around

The leaves are  drifting to the ground

There is much  beauty  all may see

In  nature’s great  serenity  !

 

 

 

BIG BRASS RING ( 2019 ) 2019/09/29

Often our dreams get whisked away

Ere each one has a word to say

Too many wishes we have seen

That  fall into the cracks between,

The saga of a life  close to

Its pending end and what to do

We’ll find a spot to set aside

For this our last and final ride.

Our  dreams and wishes are just that

A chance to wear another hat

But if you choose to praises sing,

Get set to catch the big brass ring !

 

 

 

 

MY DREAM ( 2019 ) 2019/09/28

This  heart that beats  here in my chest

Sometimes  it needs to pause and rest

The  problems  that my  life conveys

Oftimes  puts  me  into  a daze .

I  wandered  lost in distant lands

As  time slipped through  my trembling hands,

My voice  it failed  and shan’t be heard

No,  not one  single  spoken word.

Perhaps with luck  I’ll pass the test

And  mayhaps time will  heal the rest

Tis  now to  demonstrate  the  love

That my heart  has been  dreaming of !

 

 

 

CLEAR SKIES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/27

The  clouds  overhead are  dark and grim

The sky  above  now  has grown dim

As  evening  shadows  gently  fall

The  night moves  in  to cover all.

What happens  when  the world’s  asleep

And images  from  corners creep

Across the  room with  purpose clear

To  know  a  night  without a fear ?

Attend  the coming morn  in shrouds

Lest dawn  arrives  bedecked in clouds

Let’s  veil the  fullness of our day

And  chase  all of our doubts  away !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ALL YOU DO ( 2019 ) 2019/09/26

Oh precious Lamb, You are so sweet

This world is kneeling at Your feet

You are the world’s bright shining Star

All that we hope and dream You are.

The times we knew are fading fast

Have we the stamina to last,

What must we do to prove to You,

Praise God and honor all You do !

 

 

 

 

TO ANSWER PRAYER ( 2019 ) 2019/09/25

Oh charity,  be kind to me

Please help  me set  my body free

How much  longer  can I persist

What  shall I do  to pain resist ?

At  times  I’m sure there’ll be no  end

More like a life  without a friend

I didn’t think  I’d have to bear

Unending  pain  or deep despair.

I am not angered  or divorced

With all the  issues time’s  enforced

I only know  that  God is there

To ease all  pain and answer  prayer !

Oh Lord,  protect us from our sin

Open  Your  heart and let us in

Please  hear our every  humble prayer

And let us  be  sure that  You’re  there,

Life  is so full of  joy we know

Because  tis true,  You love us so !

 

AMEN

Because I was  and am  no more

Before all hope  slips out the door

And leaves  me here out  on my own

With what I fear is yet  unknown

I beg You,  Lord,  bide with  me still

Until  I’ve learned to  do His will !

 

CALAMITY IS HERE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/22

Well  here we are at God’s front door

What is it  we are  waiting  for

An  invitation  to come in

A smile, a kiss, a foolish grin ?

We’ve  not much time,  let’s hurry up

And place  our futures  in  His cup

We  cannot  fail to  understand

Calamity  is  close at  hand.

The world  is crumbling  as we wait

For  destiny to  crash  this gate

Oh,  Lord above,  do heed our  plea

Open  our eyes  and set us free !

 

AMEN. ( 2019 ) 2019/09/21

Through thick and thin we did begin

Our journey long by charging in

Our courage hasn’t failed before

We stand our ground forever more.

No cowardice to e’er be found

Wherein our qualities abound

We are a nation based on truth

Oft overcome by leaked uncouth.

It matters small we’ve manners rude

Or if our language appears crude

For we are but an arm of strength

Protecting God and friends at length !

 

NOW SING ALONG ( 2019 ) 2019/09/20

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:42 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Long time  ago when I  was young

We had  great songs  that could  be sung

About  our nation and our lives

And thousands  over time  survives.

These words of courage  carry on

With  impact of the clarion

They sing of life and  love and care

Of hope and joy,  grief and despair.

Let’s lend  our  voice to all we feel

Because  our  sentiment  is real

Like all  the  verses we have heard

Repeat  to us  God’s  promised word !

 

 

JOYOUS AND FREE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/19

A  little  bird there on the  wing

His pretty song did choose to sing

The notes did  travel on  the air

To lend the  hour a special  flair,

Oh  how I  wish  that  I could  be

So like  that bird,  joyous and free !

 

 

REAMS AND REAMS ( 2019 ) 2019/09/18

Days come and  go,  life is  that way

We  live  in hope,  then  fade away

The days  are long  but time  is short

While in  life’s  web, we are all caught.

The chances  are we’re  not done yet

There is  much more that  we can get

Let’s fill our  hearts,  fulfill our dreams

And love our  God  just reams and reams !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ONE BIG BLAST ( 2019 ) 2019/09/17

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:05 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Though  I  am old,  I can recall

Those golden days  when  I was small

When  I was but a growing  tyke

With stuff  I liked or did  not like.

I  was not tall  nor  ego prone

Far  long  ere my ideas were  sown

I liked  to play quite by  myself

With  my  stuffed friends  upon the shelf.

Most lives  were so much  simpler then

We wrote  with  ink and  nib and pen

There  were few ways  we got about

While  horse and wagon  still stand  out.

We  learned to  treasure  moments past

Dear  God,  those years were one  big  blast !

 

 

ONE PROMISE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/16

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:44 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Oh  dearest Lord,  what shall I do

My stay on earth too soon is  through

I  leave my  love  and heart behind

For family  and  friends  to find.

But if  I’m gone and no one’s  there

Who will  be  left to truly  care,

I  pray  that you remember me

With  kindness  and simplicity.

My  closing  thought regarding  this

To seal my word  with one  last  kiss

I  charge  you now  for all  times sake

This  is a  promise I  shan’t   break !

 

 

 

 

QUIET PEACE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/15

The air  is damp and  holds a chill

The wind  is wet  and oh so still

There is no sound  that can be heard

No peep  or chirp  from any bird.

Tis like  a prelude  to a storm

Wherein  the clouds have  yet to form

Help me,  oh Lord,  to find  release

To spend  my days in  quiet peace !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABOVE THE CLOUD ( 2019 ) 2019/09/14

From my  perch here  above the crowd

I  see the sun  behind the cloud

The light  it filters  through the blind

To  focus on my troubled  mind

And  brings to me  a message of

The  peace of  God’s  eternal love.

I feel  the warmth of love and care

It  fills my heart,  it’s everywhere

Oh  what a joy  each day does bring

True love that from our God  does spring !

 

 

FREE LANDSLIDE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/13

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:26 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Corruption  bides  a care  away

Assailing all,  day  after day

With evil  lurking  everywhere

Around  the corner, up  the stair.

The malice and  the  discontent

Behind each issue  and  event

Spurred on by those  who envy  all

And  wage  no other  lifetime  call.

Tis sad to think so  many more

Are rushing  through  our  broken door

And  bringing nought  to help our side

Each  seeking  but a  free  landslide !

There is a chance that you and I

One day will have to bid goodbye

But who knows when or wonders why

Who made the rules that do apply ?

 

GOD’S JUDGEMENT DAY ( 2019 ) 2019/09/11

How often is it  that  we think

This  world of ours  is on the brink ?

What  e’er occurs  within our  sight

No matter if it’s  left  or right

Should  savour all  despite  the fear

God’s  Judgement Day  moves  ever near !

 

 

 

STILL MISSING YOU ( 2019 ) 2019/09/10

My  dearest friend I’m  missing you

With  all my heart  when I am blue

We were great friends through all the years

Times were we  laughed or cried real  tears.

Some days were good and  some were bad

We beat  the odds  though life was  sad

I  truly  wish  you were  still  here

For one last  time to bend  your ear !

 

MISS YOU.

My morning thoughts are crystal clear

They help discern why I am here

How shall I know the path to take

To live  my life void of mistake !

 

FINAL REST ( 2019 ) 2019/09/08

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:06 am
Tags: , , , , ,

When first I  held  you in my arms

My sweetest child  so full  of charm

You stole my heart and my soul too

Like no one person  e’er could do

I  never thought  that life would be

Full of  this  joy you’ve  brought to me.

 

In all the  years you  did not fail

Or steal  the wind out of my sail

We’ve weathered  every sort of storm

And kept our lives about  the norm

Tis tragic that you  couldn’t  stay

Wherein at last  my heart will lay !

 

BLINKING LIGHTS ( 2019 ) 2019/09/07

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:27 am

I watch the stars fade in and out

So patiently,  night after night

And wonder why they’re so devout

And why they shine so clear and bright.

Sometimes I fear that cannot last

For even stars fall out of sight

Oh,  what an image they have cast

With their eternal  blinking light !

 

 

NO GUARANTEES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/06

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:56 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There  are no  guarantees in life

For mother,  child,  husband  or wife,

We all  have travelled  on life’s road

Unburdened  or with heavy load

There is no  crowd to cheer us on

No magic  words to lean upon

No tragic curse that  we’re aware

Or law that says  what must be fair.

We understand that on each path

There can be times of  doubt or wrath

Yet often  seems so  very sweet

When hope and joy  with love compete

I do not  know  the  why of it

And pray  most times that we shall fit !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT CAN I DO ( 2019 ) 2019/09/05

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:16 am
Tags: , , , , ,

What  is it  I can do for  you

Encouraging  each  wish comes true,

Seeking for you a  safer place

Increase the smile upon your face ?

How may I ease your weary day

Help chase your  fearful cares  away

Decrease the  lonely  burden  of

A  life’s  existence  without love ?

Is there  some  joy that  I may gift

Ensuring  you that  spirit’s  lift

And promise that I shall  try hard

To be there as you search for  God !

 

 

SUMMER SKIES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/04

Today  we rose to sunny  skies

While not  expecting  some surprise

The winds that blew seemed well behaved

Tree limbs and  branches all were saved.

Soon autumn will  reach our front door

And summer breeze will blow no more

Before too long the year shall  pass

Like shadows in the  looking  glass

Oh  Lord,  give  all the  pow’r  to rise

Once more to sight  sweet summer skies !

 

 

 

THIS JOURNEY’S DONE ( 2019) 2019/09/03

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 8:10 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Sometimes  I want to yell and  scream

To exit from this  madd’ning  scene

The world I  love is gone from here

It  shall  not  ever  reappear.

Instead all that  I’ve valued so

Packed up its bags  and had to go

Tis sad  the  time  has gone

No  reason  left to carry on.

Small  matter what we say or do

Our stay on  earth is  overdue

Let’s  count our blessings  one by one

And thank the Lord  this journey’s  done !
