DOUBTS AND FEARS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/30

Dreams  are part of each one’s life scheme

For  none exists  without  some dream

The  good,   the bad,  the  discontent

Have  dreamt  those that from God  are sent.

The  Good Book  tells  tale after  tale

Of  those  angels  that  are  regaled

The  simplest  babe  while fast  asleep

Reacts  to dreams  the while he  sleeps.

No  one  eludes  reality

Of  this  wide world  of  mystery

Through  which  all fears  do ever  wind,

The  place where  our doubts  are confined !

Oh  for the  days of what  might have been

With  memories of  remember  when,

As  the heart  recalls  the times  we knew

When  children were  as all  children do.

Their  names are tatooed  upon my brain

Like  loving words of an  old refrain

That  tugs on those  chains  of kindness past,

Of  the days  long gone  that did not last !

 

 

 

 

I’M WAITING HERE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/28

When  I was young  and full of dreams

My  heart was  bursting at the seams

The  world  about was bright and smart

And  I tried  hard  to care impart.

The  passing years  grew wings and flew

I  did the  best that  I could do.

There  were some days  I shan’t disguise

As  tears welled  up and filled my eyes.

I  searched for  love I could not store,

Love  that I never knew  before

And  found it in  the Word of God

In  chapter,  verse,  t’was  not that  hard.

I’ve  learned since then,  His  Truth  is all

I’m  waiting  here  upon  His call !

 

 

 

 

 

 

EVERYTHING ENDS WITH A KISS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/27

My  life is strained and hard to bear

Too  many stories left to share

A   little up,   a  little down

A  happy smile,  a tiny frown.

Some  days are great and others sad

As  life is full of  good and bad

Tears  are there  in the midst  of bliss

Where  everything  ends with a kiss !

 

 

A FATHER’S LOVE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/26

Once was a man  that I had known

When  I was young and not full grown

Long time ago  and far away

Another  life,  another  way.

 

He was a man  of honest pride

Direct  and sweet,  sincere  inside

I  miss him still  and ever will

He holds that place  none else can fill.

 

And  if I live one  hundred years

Or have to face one  thousand fears

There  is no one  I’ll ever meet

Who  shall my father’s  love unseat  !

 

PARTNERS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/25

The air  is sharp,  cuts to  the bone

Why  should each  face their life alone

Because  we’re made in  pairs to start

Including  body,  mind and  heart.

T’was  God  Himself  who made that choice

So  Adam’s rib  would have a voice

And  be his  partner and  his wife

To share with  him for  his whole life !

 

 

WHAT WE’VE SEEN ( 2019 ) 2019/11/24

Without  a word,  where would we be

If   this world  found it’s  harmony,

Ten  thousand years  seems time enough

To  figure out  the  going’s  rough.

I’ll  never  understand  the why

The  choice  is not  to live  or die,

But  can we hope or  chance to  dream

That  life holds  more than  what we’ve seen !

 

HIS WORD AND PSALMS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/23

This  heart of mine has grown so old

As  weather now turns wet and cold

The  spring is just too far away

To  ease the tensions of the day.

Perhaps  this winter will prove kind

And happiness we each shall find

Together  with the  peace and calm

We  garner from His  Word and Psalms !

Tis the season of fall harvest

The conclusion of this past year

When all intentions do suggest

It’s time good things now do appear.

Avoid the chill and evening cold

And keep the thermos near the fire

Use scarf and gloves as we’ve been told

Thus staying warm as needs require.

The winter comes as winter goes

Mid slush and frost and icy roads

The ice may drip o’er face and nose

Aft snow surrounds us by the loads !

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHO HAS HEARD ( 2019 ) 2019/11/21

My  heart cries out  for all the pain

That  visits  man  again,  again

And  where’s  the peace we’re  waiting for

Seems  only stress  walks  through the door.

How  much longer must this  world wait

For  all  its  chaos  to abate,

What  happens to  the good that’s  done

As  years fly  by,  one  after one,

Revering  God,  His  perfect  Word

The  love and  wisdom all have  heard ?

There is this tugging on my heart

How did it  ever get its start

A  numbness rising  from the floor

Into  my feet and  out the door.

What’s  happening,  I do not know

I  cannot make it  stop or go

Please lead me Lord,  teach me the way

Help  me survive  each lonely  day.

Where are the tears  I need to cry

With  each and every  sad goodbye

Where  are the kisses  I have earned

Ere all  my bridges  have been burned ?

 

 

 

ALONG THE WAY ( 2019 ) 2019/11/19

I  took the path  along the  way

Because  I knew I  would not stray

The  trail was long,  the road was straight

My  caution was  I must not  wait .

While  age and time  have much to share

About  the ways  in which we care

For  in the end  what e’er we do

Determines  what  and  where and who !

 

HOPEFUL PRAYERS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/18

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 11:52 am

When shades of night begin to fall

And evening hours do softly call

I find that I’m drawn to the sight

Of bright stars that light up the night,

While now and then as one zips past

It leaves a trail that does not last.

The stars are born in distant skies

Beyond the search of human eyes

The best that we can ever do

Is hope our prayers one day come true !

 

 

THE WINDS OF CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/17

The  sun  is rising  in the  sky

To peer o’er roofs  of homes nearby

And  shine a ray of bright  sunlight

To veil the darkness  of each night.

The winds of chance  are more  discreet

As  they blow  change across the  street

And  every single  breath we  breathe

Is  one  more  memory to  leave !

 

 

 

DIVINITY ( 2019 ) 2019/11/16

In  dreams we find  life’s small escape

Some dreams  are meant to  keep us safe

While arms  are meant  to wrap around

And keep  us warm  with love unbound.

How wonderful  this world  would be

Wrapt  up  in God’s  divinity !

 

PERFECTION ( 2019 ) 2019/11/15

My heart  so full,  tis sure to pop

My brain’s  elated,  I can’t stop

I  view outside,  what do I see

This image God has  made for me.

There’s such rare  beauty to be found

From azure  sky with its surround

Like  all the joy  He’s gifted me

His heaven,  earth,  His  world to see !

Here  in the silence  of  the night

One finds the courage and  the might

Of  all that’s  proffered in  His sight

By God  whose  judgement is the Light !

 

 

WHERE WARMTH IS FREE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/13

The  cold slips in beneath the door

And  shimmies fast across the floor

Leaving  behind a lasting chill

As  icy  fingers  often will.

No  matter where it is I go

I  am no fan of frost or  snow

And wish I  had a  magic wand

To  shoo the cold  to places yon

What bliss  t’would be to bide  somewhere

That  warmth is  free and  everywhere  !

 

THE DARK OF NIGHT ( 2019 ) 2019/11/12

The  sun peeks through the window blinds

As  morning light  exposure finds

Let’s welcome  in  this brand new day

Before  it too does fly  away.

The leaves have gone,  the trees are bare

The  smell of  snow now fills the air

As  winter creeps  upon its knees

The  earth  beneath  begins to freeze.

Too soon  the frost  will move on in

While  dark of night  shall  soon begin !

 

 

VICTORY ( 2019 ) 2019/11/11

I  hear the sound  of martial strains

A  proud  familiar  old refrain

One echoing  across  the plains

That tell my heart  believe again.

This  nation  bound  in history

Which fought against cruel  infamies

Won  claim  to fame and  victory

That  bested oceans and the seas !

 

HAPPY 244TH !

Oh  blessed Lord,  please hear my plea

And save a  piece  of sky  for me

A  dusky  eve or starlit  night

Perhaps  a rainbow’s  sweet delight.

And  for  your  pleasure,  I will raise

A  song of love  and joyous praise

Come  join me Lord  and hear me  pray

That  you’ll take  me with  you to stay !

 

 

 

HIS WORLD ( 2019 ) 2019/11/09

The  earth is round  and full of strife

From sea to sea  it teems with life

It’s full of valleys,  mountains high

Where giant  peaks reach  for the sky.

Trillions of acres  garbed in green

Four hundred  billion birds are seen

Where eighty  billion souls  may be

Before  this life will  set us free

A world  of sound,  eclectic light

An  image  of God’s  Own insight !

 

 

 

HE’S PROMISED ALL ( 2019 ) 2019/11/08

The  Word of God  shines  bright and clear

Sincerity  rings  on  the  ear

And  leads us to  the proper  way

To  mend our lives  as we  do  pray.

The  lessons  learned and manners taught

Are  those that  have our freedom  bought

If  we accept this  gift  He  gave

He’s  promised all,  our souls  He’ll save !

 

 

TIME TO SHARE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/07

Oh, how  I pray that I  can  hide

These  tears  I shed  on the inside

For  all  God’s  children  that I see

Who  dwell in  abject  poverty.

They  never  really had a  chance

For  all their dreams  to be  enhanced

Or  find a  safer path to  take

That  guarantees  a better  break.

Our  Lord  is just  and answers  prayer

He  comprehends we all  must share

It’s  left to  us  to learn  and  teach

The  world we love  to  kindness  reach !

The  fireplace  flickers as the fire glows

It  warms the  fingertips and  the toes

Too soon  the winter will  settle here

And stay  with us till the  end of year.

We’ll  learn to laugh though it turns quite chill

While there’s no chance it could change our will

For who  doesn’t  love the  old  fireside

When  winds  blow  hard and it’s  cold outside ?

 

 

TIME’S RUN AWAY ( 2019 ) 2019/11/05

There  is a joy the season brings

That dwells within rememberings

Of  times long  past and those to come

In  this old world so worrisome.

What  used to  be our yesterdays

Have  been recycled  to todays

And  we’ve recaptured  our best chance

To feel  again the  warm romance.

The world  that was,  has disappeared

To be  forgotten as we feared

Tis sad  that time  must runaway

To leave  but hours to  love and pray !

The dark of night moves in with ease

And snuggles till the morning  breeze

The angels of the night will fade

And rest until the evening shade.

The dawn arrives to welcome day

The world’s  alive and kneels to pray

God bless us all and make us whole

Improve our times and save our soul !

 

 

TO THE LEAST ( 2019 ) 2019/11/03

All  creatures  lives are full of fear

As  they survive  from year to year

Some lifetimes  that they  share  are cruel

Still  their love  sparkles  like a jewel.

While  all  the legacy  we leave

Are  what we’ve  said or do  believe

The  animals can’t  speak their mind

But  truer love  this world won’t  find.

How  sad that  few may  chance  endure

To  cruelty  there is  no cure

Beg  God  protect each simple beast

From  giant-sized  down to the least !
