THE LAST HURRAH ( 2019 ) 2019/12/31

Too  many dreams have  come and gone

While  life itself  still  lingers on

The  days pass by,  the candle burns

As  years fly past,  the earth still turns.

What  was today now  bids goodbye

And  all that’s left,  a  quiet  sigh !

My  heart’s so sad  I cannot bear

The  thought that I may never share

Or  see the end of all we’ve wrought

And what has been  or heard or taught.

The  dreams of all our yesterdays

That  in this life  do garner praise

Are kept quite safe  in memory

Reflecting  our  identity

For  dreaming is a part  of what

Life  is about,  like it  or not  !

The  pages of my date book fly

Reminding  me life’s  passing by

Day dawns  and rushes off I  know

While  I am not  quite set to go.

Oh  how I wish that  I could be

A  child once more beguiled  and free

Who  loves all God’s  variety

And every gift He  offers me !

The  time for  dreaming is now done

Let’s  raise our glasses  one by one

To  give a toast and pledge  that we

Shall  make it to  eternity !

The cattle low, the rooster crows

Tis quite early in the morning

The trees will bend, the wind it blows

Another day soon is dawning.

The squirrels hustle in the trees

Their booty they are defending

While pigeons roosting mongst the leaves

All their messages are sending !

 

GIFT OF GIVING ( 2019 ) 2019/12/26

May  the gift of  giving be with us  each year

As  the sounds of Christmas  fall  upon our ear

May  the joy of  loving bring  each one  great cheer

While  true  faith in God  diminishes our  fear  !

 

 

 

HIS WORD WILL REIGN ( 2019 ) 2019/12/25

I wish,  I wish I could have been

On that long road to  Bethlehem

To witness those bright stars at night

That  to all proclaimed  Christ’s  birthright.

Oh  star of wonder  teach  me how

To  bide with truth and  honor now

Because  I know  His Word will reign

Upon  this earth  again,  again !

 

 

 

CHRISTMAS JOY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/24

There  is a sound  I remember well

The  joyous peal  of our Christmas bell

Resting  there in its  lofty steeple

Reaching  out to all  of His people.

Granting each one love,  peace and surprise

On  Christmas morn  as all do arise

Thank  God for our blessings  great and small

May  the Lord above  gift hope to all !

 

RENDEZ-VOUS ( 2019 ) 2019/12/23

There’s  a tugging on my heartstrings

The  sound of Christmas music brings

Old  memories that fill my  brain

Are  here to haunt me  once again.

I  can’t  forget the times long gone

Those  dreams that we depended on

How  much time have we  yet to wait

Before  we meet at Heaven’s  Gate ?

 

 

CONSISTENCY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/22

Can  you hear winter winds break through the trees

With  frozen breath and chill,  an instant freeze ?

I hear the crackling ice,  it falls away

Reminds us  weather changes day by day,

It  sort of  vacillates and jumps about

Exposing  purpose,  choice,  free will  and doubt.

So let us now  our precious  chances take

Pray  God  we’ve no  more branches  left to break !

 

 

TO SUCCEED ( 2019 ) 2019/12/21

There are so many ways to say

I love you each and every day

A kiss, a hug, a smile or two

Will do the trick to get one through.

A voice that’s gentle, ever kind

With not a single edge to grind

True honesty in all you do

Dependable, trustworthy too,

These are the qualities you’ll need

To be a winner and succeed !

Oh how I wish  that I could fly

Above the dark  clouds in the sky

Into that  place where dreams are made

And raindrops  taste like  lemonade,

Where children  laugh and play and shout

And  no one has to do  without,

Where  God above has room to share

With  anyone who visits there !

 

 

 

THE RIGHT TRACK ( 2019 ) 2019/12/19

There’s been a moment I recall

A moment that came first of all

Before we challenged all the rules

And listened to the sound of fools

When sense was part of every day

And kindly words were ours to say

Tis time to get our values back

And keep us all on a right track !

 

THAT FINAL DOOR ( 2019 ) 2019/12/18

As I peer out my window pane

I see the snow has come again

Here in the early  hours of dawn

The whiteness seems to  brighten morn.

Oh  what a  luxury it is

To be assured  that we are His

And  will be so  forever more

When life shall close  that final door !

 

TO SET US FREE ( 2019 ) 2019/12/17

My heart’s so full I dare not speak

A world so sad, so dark, so bleak

The winds of war doth us surround

The earth begs cleansing all around.

May God in heaven hear our plea

And use His power to set us free !

And so my love as we’ve grown old

And nights are long and days are cold

And all we knew has been forgot

With dreams that we remember not !

 

EACH WISH FULFILL ( 2019 ) 2019/12/15

The  Christmas lights are burning bright

Invading  darkness of  the night

Colors  bursting clear to  the roof

Reverberating  season’s  proof

Extending  faith they wish  to share

With  believers  everywhere

Believe  the season’s  magic will

With  love  and joy,  each wish  fulfill !

At  times  I  try so very hard

For  all my sadness to discard

To smile and bring my life on track

And pray to lure  good humor back.

Our  lives  are but a  series of

Moments of fear,  joy,  tears and  love

However  tough  the times  may be

It’s  always  just  temporary  !

 

 

GOD’S DIVERSITY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/13

The  snow is drifting  to  the  ground

Its  destinations to be  found

The  air’s  so fresh and wet to  touch

Creating  visions,  scenes  and such

The snow is  drifting  into  piles

Where  e’er  you turn,  the world still  smiles

Oh  what a joy that  all  may see

God’s  generous  diversity  !

Whomever  thought I would live to be

Alive  in  another  century

How  fast all the years have whizzed on by

With a  tender shrug and  a sad goodbye.

While  I’d  like to believe  it’s okay

Trying  to pursue  another  day

In  a world  I neither fit nor last

Since the  twentieth  century’s  passed !

AMEN.

 

LOOK DOWN ON ME ( 2019 ) 2019/12/11

May the Lord above look down on me

With kindness and generosity

May He clasp my hand through darkest night

And save my soul from old Satan’s might

May His love warm me when it is cold

And cushion my steps aft I’ve grown old !

AMEN.

 

A PERFECT FIT ( 2019 ) 2019/12/10

I  waken to the  light  outside

It’s  pale and dull,  on the flat side

The  sun’s smile  has been hid away

By clouds above,  some sad and  grey.

Tomorrow  brings a better  chance

Of  love and joy  mixed with romance,

Our  lives are full of  ups and downs

With happy  smiles and  miles of frowns.

Let’s  spice it up,  just  for a bit

Perhaps,   we’ll  find  a perfect  fit !

 

 

 

 

WINTER HAS ARRIVED ( 2019 ) 2019/12/09

The  weather’s so much colder now

The snow is smothering each bough

A  film of icy  crystal  grows

Across  each piece of glass that shows.

The  ground is heaped to ankle high

As  swirling white falls from the sky

The  air is quiet  not a sound

The  peace of God  is all around.

There’s  not a bird  left in the air

All  hide themselves  in secret lair

They’ve tucked their beaks under their wings

And  waken when  the church  bell rings !

 

 

 

PATIENCE ( 2019 ) 2019/12/08

Throughout  my youth  and  ageing years

I’ve  known the  company  of tears

My  rainbow has  appeared at last

The  final role  my life has  cast.

I’m  still on hold,  accepting too

As  life has taught  me what to do

I  wish I  had  the  patience of

Each  saint  and  angel up above !

 

MY OBSERVATION ( 2019 ) 2019/12/07

While  Congress  prances all around

Our  troops lay  dying on the ground

But  little care do  they eschew

That  comforts any  other view

There  is a God  we must  believe

Who  soon our honor  will retrieve  !

 

PLEASE PASS THIS ON.

Oh  life that  was and  is no more

Has  tiptoed softly  out the  door

And  just as  peaceful  laid  to rest

Amidst  the  ages mongst  the best !

 

THE BLESSING ( 2019 ) 2019/12/06

Oh  for the  days when dreams  were new

And growing  up  seemed  over due

When  children’s  laughs were full of  glee

And  love was  still a  mystery.

The  Lord  Himself  is always there

He  heals  our wounds  and  hears our prayer

Bless  God for  all the  gifts  He gives

And  all  the sins which  He  forgives !

 

WAIT OUR TURN ( 2019 ) 2019/12/05

This life is full of mix and match

Grab anything that you can catch

Hold on  because you never know

What  opportunities  will  show.

It  may not  seem to  be enough

Though often when the going’s tough

There  is a lesson we  need learn

That each of us must  wait our turn !
