HELP SAVE ME ( 2020 ) 2020/02/29

I  see the willows  in the wood

The  branches wave  like willows should

They  sweep the air  in mock surprise

To  shake the dreamdust  from my eyes

For  dreaming is  what I do best

When  I no longer  can protest

The  world about me  and its pain

That  cries aloud again,  again

Oh  Blessed Lord,  have mercy please

I  come to You on  bended knees

Help  save me from  old Satan’s  might

Should  he discover  me some night !

 

 

 

 

TIS FINISHED ( 2020 ) 2020/02/28

Have  you wondered what  Christ did think

While  He suffered  there on the brink

And as  they nailed Him  to the cross

How  did He there  accept the loss

For  all along  He  knew His fate

Perhaps  not  hour or day  or date

As  all the pain  that did ensue

And  degradation  did accrue

It  brought Him to  His saddest ebb

He uttered  words to  God instead

The  last He’d spoken  that was heard

” Tis  finished ”  was His  final word !

 

 

LOST THE RACE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/27

The  morn is grey  and overcast

How  long will  this oppression last

There  is a silence  everywhere

One  needs a blade  to cut the air.

The  sky above  is masqued white

With  not a bit of clear  in sight

My  skin is  cool,  I feel  the chill

The  world  I live in  is quite ill.

The  tree limbs  are all stark and bare

With  ne’er  a bit of life out there

No  hint of green  left any place

It  makes me think  we’ve lost the  race !

 

 

 

 

ASK IT IN ( 2020 ) 2020/02/26

Can  you hear the  rain as it pelts down

Raining  so hard  all the worms may drown

Midst  streams of water  hitting the ground

Like  rivers pushing the leaves around ?

Oh,  what a day that today  has been

With  rain pouring down  windows and trim

There’s  a storm outside  we can’t let in

Lest  we raise the  sash to ask it in !

 

 

I NEED YOU NOW ( 2020 ) 2020/02/25

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:29 am

I  love You  Lord,  You  are to me

My  joy and life’s  Epitome

The  whipped   cream on  my piece of cake

Like  mushrooms  on my filet steak.

You’re  the Beginning  and the End

Of  all my dreams and my best  Friend

I  need Your  love to  help me now

To  get  me through  these  days somehow !

AMEN.

 

 

WORTHWHILE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/24

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:09 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I  am so glad  I can recall

The  bygone days  when I was small

I’d  sit upon  my nana’s  lap

All  snug and  warm in cozy wrap

And  get to  spend  much of my days

In  comfort  close under her gaze

For  all my life,  I’ll  never find

Another  who would  be so kind

Her  gentle ways  and crooked  smile

Made  early life  for me  worthwhile

 

 

OLD REFRAIN ( 2020 ) 2020/02/23

Tags: , , , , ,

There  is a thought  hums through  my brain

Reminds  one of an  old refrain

Familiar  words  I’ve heard  before

What  is it  we are waiting  for ?

Our  Precious Lord  and  Sacred  Dove,

The  Prince  of Peace from  up above

Fulfilling  promises  God gave

To  save us  from the  Final  Grave.

 

NEVER ENDING LOVE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/22

I  hear the bells  ring out for me

They  sing a song  of unity

The  melody  I  recognize

It  brings tears  to my tired eyes.

The  night  is father  to the dawn

That  breaks upon the  early morn

To  teach each  all the  patterns of

God  and  His  never  ending love !

 

DISPARITY ( 2020 )

Oh  little cat with  four white boots

It’s  clear to see, we’re in  cahoots

Together you and I  will be

Two  partners  in  disparity.

Your  coat of striped grey’s thick and bright

Your neck  cowl is  so  furry white

Where do you go  when you leave here

Is  it too  far or  really  near

What will  you do when  fall has  done

And winter cold  too soon  has come ?

 

I’ll  miss you if you  go away

What  can  I do  to make you  stay

I’m  trying hard  to  comprehend

I’d  like our  friendship  not to  end !

 

 

GOODBYE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/21

A  little  bit of heaven entered my life one day

Seems  so very long ago  and ever far away

And  through all the many  years he grew to be a man

He  learned to live a life complete  as most  persons can.

Well  that was yesterday  and he’s gone, by now  you  know

Never  seemed to me that he  would be the first to go

As  I  recall  every  moment of what  used to be

And  of the life  we  knew like  an  ancient  history.

But  he’s no longer here and  I miss his gentle touch

I  remember  his last words ” Mom I love you so much  ! ”

“GOODBYE”

 

PRECIOUS DAY ( 2020 ) 2020/02/20

Seems  today’s  life  has its ups  and downs

In  this world  that’s  full of  smiles and frowns

With  its portion of  both  laughs and tears

Enough  to last  us a  dozen  years.

Thus  we come and  go  and only find

The  path we have chosen  will unwind

So  we’ll take our  chances  come what may

And  praise our  Lord  for each precious day !

 

 

BRAND NEW START ( 2020 )

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

Too  many must risk life and  limb

In  foreign lands beyond the rim

Let’s  return  them all  home at last

And  bury disputes of the past

We  need once more a brand new start

A  smarter way,  a bigger heart

Tis  time to lift  our  eyes above

Seek  greater wisdom  from  God’s love

Apply  His ethics one by one

And  keep  His law  until we’ve  done !

 

A YEARNING ( 2020 ) 2020/02/19

I’m  so  full of  rememberings

All  of the joys that  childhood  brings

With  love  and laughter  by the score

That  may  live on  forevermore.

How  marvelous  those dreams may be

A  part of our  heredity

A  yearning  for the days of  yore

To  be just  whom  we were before !

 

 

 

DESTINY CALLS ( 2020 ) 2020/02/18

The  shades of night  are closing in

As  skies outside  now fade and dim

There  is a hum  that one can hear

The  sound keeps  whistling on the ear.

A  silence  overides the  halls

While  darkness of the  night time falls

Somewhere  a hush has  settled down

As  clicking  heels reecho  sound.

Hush,  hear  the rale  of  breathing now

God  help me to  survive  somehow

The  quiet  of these  empty  halls

Until  at last,  destiny  calls  !

 

 

THE EXIT (2020) 2020/02/17

Love  is the strength  I lean upon

My  faith,  my  hope,  my carry on

Without  the Lord  where would I be

Alone  in some  lost company.

I  never thought  I’d spend my  days

At  last in one forgotten  haze

The  final exit  left for  me

Is  labeled  God’s  eternity  !

 

 

AMERICA, I LOVE YOU (2020 )

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:22 am

I  love America,  land of the free

I  love America,  tis home to me

As  she spreads  from the mountains  to the plains

Replete  with  thunder storms  and  summer rains.

From  her northern  tips to the  sandy shore

Cross  the valleys deep  and wide,  trees galore

The  beauty  of this  land  entices  all

Through  winter,  springtime, summer and  the fall !

 

HOW WONDERFUL ( 2020 ) 2020/02/15

I’m  lying here in dark of night

Anticipating  morning’s  light

A  bright new  dawn is on its  way

To  wish us all  a pleasant day.

How  wonderful our God must be

With  all His  generosity

And  greater strength with  peace of mind

A  truer friend  we’ll  never find  !

 

 

LIVE ( 2020 )

My  journey’s long  and lonesome too

The  mind now questions what to do

My  heart still beats  and wonders why

The  time has come to  bid goodbye.

Of  all the wishes I have known

Like  all the seeds  that I have sown

( Too many  often  blown away

Ne’er to return  another day )

That  struggled  so thence to survive

God  grant the will to all revive !

 

 

 

CARRY ON ( 2020 ) 2020/02/14

Oh  little lamb  so pure and sweet

You  lay there  at your Saviour’s feet

How  long before  your time has come

Your  destiny  will be undone ?

We  each one have  to make our way

Learn to accept  it day by day

And  pray that all we  touch in life

Will  help to heal  this world  in strife.

Move on,  move on,  without a pause

We carry on,  it is the cause  !

 

 

THERE IS NO CURE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:14 pm

This pain  I feel,  unending  bad

So  far the worst of what I’ve had

I  don’t know how  to stop the ache

It’s  all too real,  no space for  fake.

Somehow  I have  to clear my mind

And  beg of God,  His peace to find

What  is the next that I must do

I  need a moment  to think  through.

The  road ahead  is  blank and dim

I  can’t  proceed,  not without  Him

I’m lost  alone without  a cure

The  end  draws near  of this I’m  sure

God  is my anchor  tried and true

To  Him,  I’ll  be one of His  crew !

 

FRIENDSHIP ENDS ( 2020 ) 2020/02/09

There  is a trip  that  I need take

One  that I wish  I might forsake

However  love,  I’ve  no recourse

And  no way left  to try outsource.

This  trip is mine alone  to brave

With  no time left  for me  to  save

It  is my choice  the last one too

Before  I bid  goodbye  to you.

The  sadness is not  mine alone

To  all who are  a lifetime known

For  we shall part  while we are  friends

Until  so sad,  all friendship  ends !

 

GOD’S GOLDEN GATE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/08

Lord  save us from  old Satan’s  might

And  guide us through each lonesome night

Protect  us as we wend our  way

From  morning’s light till end of day

Forsake  us not,  we do believe,

We’re  grateful  for gifts we receive.

Lord,  how much longer  must we wait

To  greet  You at God’s  Golden Gate ?

 

 

WHATEVER PLEASES ME ( 2020 ) 2020/02/07

Filed under: HISTORY,POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:58 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Oh  how I wish  that I might  be

An  apple on an  apple  tree

Or  strawberries  upon a plate

With  breakfast served by half past eight.

Perhaps a glass of  orange juice

Or  portion  of vanilla  mousse

Oh  how much fun  that  it would be

To  eat  whatever  pleases  me.

Now cookies,  cake  and things  like that

Go  pretty  far to add  some  fat

So  I’ll  abstain  best as I  can

But  I refuse to  give  up  flan !

 

GOD IS WITH US ( 2020 ) 2020/02/06

How  many times  we run away

From  all the  problems  of the day

Or  shut our eyes  and close our ears

Escaping  from a world  of tears.

How  wise that most  chose to forget

Days  of rejection  or regret

We  need remember  by and by

That  God  is with us  ere we die !

 

 

A DREAM TO FIND ( 2020 ) 2020/02/05

Nightshades  have fallen,  all is dark

Tree  limbs above are  bare and stark

There  is this silence  that abounds

As  nature  softens all  her sounds.

Yet  I  can  see  stars  in the  sky

That  clouds keep  hiding from the eye

Oh  how I wish  that I could be

Some  wise old owl  perched in a tree

Who  comprehends that  hopes unwind

To  help us each  our dream  to find !

 

 

GOD’S FINGER ( 2020 ) 2020/02/04

Life  dishes out  a lot of stuff

Before  too long  we’ve  had enough

The  tides of time,  sometimes too strong

Will  somehow carry  us along

To  events we have  never seen

Or  places  we have never been

I  believe  all  peace doth linger

At  the behest  of God’s  finger !

 

 

 

IN THE BEGINNING ( 2020 ) 2020/02/03

Whenever  I think  of the  past

And  ships that  skimmed  o’er  oceans vast

They  traversed  round the world they knew

Adventurous,  historic  too.

Oh  how I wish  that I had known

This  world  before it was  all  grown

Think  what a hoot  it might  have  been

To  be there when  it did  begin !

Sometimes  this world gets in the way

We  come and go,  yet cannot stay

Or  find a path  to keep us free

From  all of life’s  complexity.

I’ve  often  wondered  just how long

We’re  all expected  to be strong

It  takes some bit of  grit to see

The  pathway  to  eternity !
