I used to think that I was strong

And knew therewith where I belonged

How sad to learn fate flew away

Ne’er to return e’er aft that day.

So long ago, that distant past

How foolish to believe t’would last

For dreams will keep us warm at night

But vanish with the morning light !

Each day I rise with great surprise

To find the world before my eyes

I thank the Lord that I’m alive

And query how I still survive !

I’ve lived this life a long, long time

Indeed it’s been a tedious climb

At times I’ve thought I can’t go on

But rules are what life’s based upon !

Forgive me Lord for doubting You

What e’er You’ve taught, it is all true

I’ll carry on,  I promise this

And know that life is not all bliss !

 

 

 

 

IT’S FINE WITH ME ( 2019 ) 2019/05/02

Oh what a joy if I could be

Freed from my disability

To stand and walk upon my own

A dream to me till now unknown

How long, dear Lord, shall I exist

Amidst this pain that does persist ?

I grow so tired of being strong

And for some peace I ever long

I am content and know my place

Expecting soon one last embrace

Forgive me Lord, tis true You’ll see

What e’er will be, it’s fine with me !

 

 

NOT WITH FEAR ( 2019 ) 2019/01/31

Now I have lived so many years

Years filled with hope and thick with tears

Times when I thought that I was done

And others that were full of fun.

I’ve known the wars and tragedy

And lost those who were dear to me

I left my heart on foreign shore

For those that I shall see no more.

Sometimes  I’ve wondered how I could

Because my heart’s not made of wood

My thanks to God, I’ve come this far

I’m battle weary but unscarred.

I sense that I’ve withstood the test

And hope I’ve given all my best

The end for sure draws ever near

I face my God but not with fear !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

 

DAY OF RECKONING ( 2019 ) 2019/01/04

I thank You Lord, for all my dreams

And all my silly hare-brained schemes,

For all the joy that I have known

In spite of all life’s sadness shown.

Like those whose paths have crossed with mine

Adding to that,  past valentines,

A birthday message gone astray

Or those I’ve loved who went away,

Remember Lord that I’m still here

My day of reckoning grows near !

 

AMEN.

Too soon the journey ends my friend

And leaves us much that can’t unbend

To make way for His finest blend

Of all the bliss God’s pleased  to send !

Sometimes I waken in the night

To find there’s no one else in sight

And I am torn to ponder why

The bright lit stars desert the sky

Or why the valleys lose their glow

When meteors do fail to show !

Instead we face a blackened sky

Unveiled before our darkened eye

To note the lonliness we feel

And pray that it is most unreal ?
