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 !

 

OUR REMEMBER WHEN ( 2017 ) 2017/11/25

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

I’m writing to you just because

Christmas is coming round the bend

It’s time to share it with a friend

Though not so simple as it seems

As Christmas nears it fosters dreams.

It is a season to feel young

With Yuletide carols to be sung

It would be nice if we’d return

To days when candles would be burned

When children small were told the tales

Of magic sleighs that had no sails.

 

The reindeer were believed to fly

Across the reaches of the sky

But let’s pretend a moment more

That elves may work in Santa’s store

It’s true I’ve never seen an elf

Except ceramic on a shelf.

Well never mind, this too shall pass

Like Alice through her looking glass

Until next year, same time, same place

Anticipating your embrace

I pray I’m not too old by then

Forgetting our remember when !

 

ISN’T IT WONDERFUL TO SEE WITH THE HEART OF A CHILD ?

 

 

 

YOU WILL BE THERE ( 2017 ) 2017/07/06

Of late the days all seem to fly

As leaves of time keep flashing by

There is so little I can grasp

I need a halt to take a gasp.

Sometimes I’m deaf and sometimes blind

I’m never sure what I shall find

How can my life just melt away

Without my having any say ?

I trust You Lord and know You care

That in my pain You will be there !

 

 

THE CLARION’S CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/05/31

We shall not run out of values at stake

That is an action that we will not take

For the facts are what this is all about

Either spoken gently or with a shout,

Only time can tell as each day rolls on

There is this thought that we depend upon.

When the winter’s young and the cold is new

We own the courage to make this come true

That as we age and experience mounts

There is the moment when true wisdom counts.

You may do your best making fools of all,

But who will stand at last clarion’s call ?

 

 

 

NOUGHT TO SAY ( 2017 ) 2017/05/25

There was a tree that I had seen

Quite lush and large and oh so green

When I was young and not so tall

The tree had barely grown at all.

I’ve watched it age through all the years

Some good, some bad, some full of fears

But always spreading out each limb

As if in thanks offered to Him.

The tree is old, well I am too

If truth be told, we’ve shared a view

Times are long past, we’ve had our day

So like that tree nought left to say !

 

REPRISE ( 2016 ) 2016/08/17

I now have dreamt a thousand dreams

Not one of them came true

For they were naught but crazy schemes

And foolishness we knew.

Our dreams are meant to give us hope

Perhaps a brand new chance

No matter what the age or scope

Reprise is our last dance !

 

 

THE MESSAGE ( 2016 ) 2016/06/09

I can’t foretell the story of what each life may hold

Because all are different, some timid, some are bold

We’re sure throughout the years that truth is bound to unfold

Pray we’ll accept this message before we are too old !
