When most of the darkness leaves us

And we are at last all alone

There’s no one left to deceive us

We are basic’ly  on our own.

In the midst of our lifetime’s storm

When good sense and health have vanished

Imagine that this is the norm

And what’s left here has been banished.

When the new replaces the old

And life seems to have gone astray

Remember we once were that bold

But short of a permanent stay !

I feel the chill that’s in the air

The trees outside are stark and bare

There’s ne’er a plant that shall survive

Too cold last night to stay alive.

When morning calls what will we see

God’s version of tenacity,

A world reviving from cold’s blast

Whose entity doth last and last.

Through warm or cold and wet or dry

God’s plans’ not ready for goodbye

So loosen up, get on the track

It’s time to take His wisdom back !

 

BY CANDLELIGHT ( 2018 )

A simple meal by candlelight

To take the chill off winter’s night

A table set with antique lace

Warmed by the glow of an embrace.

The silence that accompanies

This sudden chill before the freeze

While God and man try to maintain

The quiet calm that shall remain !

 

GOD’S LOVE IS FREE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/14

I love You Lord, what e’er You do

In hope and love and world peace too

For joy and laughter, good times all

I hear the birds and heaven call.

My heart sings out, it hums a tune

Transports my spirit to the moon

I hear the wind, it speaks to me

Reminding me God’s love is free !

 

TURN INTO STONE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/13

I am afraid to take a peek

My heart’s been playing hide and seek

I do not know what I can do

Or when the time to mourn is through !

Tis all I pray, help me think straight

Perhaps, remember if I ate,

But more than that it’s quite extreme

Life has become a vacant dream.

However much the time may take

I beg You  God, give me a break

Teach me to standup on my own

Don’t let my heart turn into stone !

 

 

MEMORIES TO REMIND US ( 2018 ) 2018/11/12

I hear the echo of the night

Secede to early morning’s light

Each day begins again anew

The world and I still miss you too.

As time moves on the vision fades

With faces lost in vast parades

While we who here remain behind

Have memories that will remind !

 

NIGHTMARES ( 2018 ) 2018/11/11

I had a dream the other night

And wakened with an awful fright

I felt the ground just slip away

While all my world lay in decay.

It seemed to me I was alone

Some place that was a danger zone

I rose quite slowly from my bed

To take a look around instead.

I said ” Thank you ” I am okay

” Please help me Lord to stay that way ”

I’ll be more cautious late at night

Who dreams to wake with such a fright ?
