As  one  reflects on  former  days

When  life seemed grand with love ablaze

To ponder all the  many  schemes

That filled our lives and were our dreams.

How sad  that most did fade  away,

Forgotten  plans of  yesterday,

Yet  left some here still  dreaming on

That  long  lost  isle of Avalon.

While tales  were told to  bring us hope

And  teach us how to learn to cope

Since  most of  life’s  inequities

Are issues  that we  must  appease !

This  heart of mine  cannot erase

The  image of that  gentle face

I’d  noticed oft  how kind you were

To  passerby or  some stranger.

The paths we trod as each grew old

Echo  our values  wise and bold

The Lord above  shall  judge us all

And we  must answer  to His call !

Do you  know why I’m missing  you

From early morn till  nightfall too

I   cannot bear you are not  here

Please bundle up,  get back in gear.

The sky is  falling,  have you heard

My heart hangs onto  every word

Tis true, I  shan’t see you again

But no  regrets,  remember when !

 

TO FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES DEPARTED FROM MY LIFE

Can you remember  what it’s like

To spread your wings and feel grown up

When I was but a  tiny tyke

I learned to sip the grownup  cup

And now I’m  old  I can’t excuse

The habits I’ve acquired since  then

I wish  somehow I could refuse

And to be young once more again.

Oh blessed  Lord so much to see

In this new world  of let’s pretend

We’ll try our best to  gracious be

And hold on tight  before the end !

Our lives are  full of sadness and things that  have  gone  astray

For who  can  face the  madness  and  the  pain of  yesterday

Oh  Lord,  we do miss  the  dreams that have come and  gone  away

But  who can  bear this  agony  we  live with day  by  day ?

 

HEART AND HEAD ( 2019 ) 2019/07/04

I hear the whistle  on the track

It  seems to signal  “hurry  back”,

So  many  indications  sound

That help us to get all around

A  whistle blows,  a bell may ring

Birds  in the trees,  their voices sing

There is a  message  to be  heard

Tis  time to  treasure every  word

Be  ready to  accept the  call

We  know that  pride  precedes a fall

Take  care to  listen to  what’s said

And love  your God  with heart and head !

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 !
