I was a girl not long ago

Life whizzes by before you know

Today I’ve found I’m getting old

And really  suffer from the cold !

My sight’s okay,  bit fuzzy now

I see myself as the last bough

And at this stage I truly need

A hint of love, a little heed !

How quickly do the days fly by

Sometimes there is a need  to cry,

Or pause the clock to take a break

There’s just too much  of life at stake !

 

 

 

 

WE’RE TOO OLD ( 2018 ) 2018/11/16

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 !

 

NOT OUR FAULT ( 2017 ) 2017/12/08

Seems that our lives are changing day by day

While fleeting years keep getting in the way

They appear to have a mission or two

Since we are pressed for time, what shall we do ?

As the days get shorter and time speeds by

Too much to remember, harder to try

All of our efforts will keep us awake

Along with those chances we often take.

There’s a point in time when we’ll have to halt

Please understand this, it won’t be our fault !

 

 

IS NOT TOO LATE ( 2017 ) 2017/09/02

There is a chill pervades the air

One feels the wind rush up the stair

The smell of fall upon the breeze

Floats gently by, soft as you please

A silence bides there in the room

Akin to patience, not to gloom.

The moments pass unnoticed now

As signs of autumn show somehow

Slowly the leaves begin to change

From light to dark the colors range

We wait here on the edge of fate

Pray God our time is not too late !

Why can’t I remember or recall

All those precious times when I was small

When I sat upon my daddy’s knee

As he held me tight and talked to me ?

These memories are melting away

Just like my life, drip by drip each day

Oh what I’d give to capture it all

Sweet memories from when I was small !

 

 

MY CHOICE ( 2016 ) 2016/04/27

Now once upon a time ago

Before my age began to show

There was a thought had crossed my mind

Of all the treasures one might find

God saved for us a special place

And kindly heart so full of grace.

I’ve known my fill of dreams and things

I do not fly and have no wings

My God’s been good, He heard my voice

And with His love approved my choice !

 

A LONELY CLIMB ( 2016 ) 2016/01/26

I miss my friends from long ago

The happy times we used to know

Football games and special events

Those summer weddings under tents.

All of the wars they had their cost,

Our pals that we have loved and lost

And now the enemy’s become

The dicky hearts we suffer from.

With cancer scoring second best

Our lives are never done with tests

The joys we knew when we were young

Those carefree days are gone and done

I’m sad I’ve lost so many friends

Our lifestyles soon will meet their ends

As will both you and I, in time

This has become a lonely climb !
