A SIMPLE GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/05

Like all the dreams you’ve ever dreamed

And all the plans you ever planned

Like the currents in the river

And all the ridges in the sand

One whisk of mighty ocean wave

That does quite often go astray

Maybe a mighty blast of wind

Stalls, waiting to come out and play

Like all the fishes in the sea

And all the birds that fly up high

The simple clasping of a hand

Accepts it’s time to say goodbye !

There is a knocking on the gate

Is this the Someone I await

I keep expecting Him to call

The time has flown, tis after fall !

The leaves are gone, impatient they

It seems they too have missed the day

Perhaps another took my place

It’s not such youth I shall embrace.

Oh tell me Sir, why am I here

Unlike the young, I have no fear

But You and I have much to share

Because I know You really care !

Perhaps it will be best if we don’t see

The shadow of a life that used to be

For all concerned it might be better still

Bid welcome to God, accepting His will.

The time is short as all lives do run out

Some with a whisper and others a shout

Now whom of we, when the curtain is down

Will greet the Lord with our face in a frown ?

I never thought that I would be

A victim of hypocrisy

But day by day in every way

I see the role I’m meant to play.

Truth is I can’t remember when

We’ll have the chance to speak again

Though I shall wish you all the best

While begging God, control the rest !

 

FINAL ACCEPTANCE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/13

Time moves on more slowly now

As every minute counts somehow

We savor all as hours pass

Because we know these are the last.

There is no choice we can make

To hope to end or stop the ache

What is to be, ’twill be so

But until then tis status quo !

 

 

 

TELL ME WHY ( 2018 ) 2018/09/02

Why should I wish that life’s a blast

When any hour could be its last

Why should I dream or try to share

When no one’s left to love or care ?

Why do I hope the time has come

When all our troubles are undone

Why am I sure we’ll all be fine

If we’d but follow God’s design ?

I’ve tried so hard for many years

To bolster courage, stem the tears

Reminding me day after day

That memories don’t fade away.

There’s no way left to heal the burn

When love’s been lost or not returned

Love lingers long and leaves a scar

That shadows one both near and far.

I thank You Lord, and understand

The beauty that is still at hand

It’s free to all that have no fear

And keeps Your Presence ever near !
