In age one learns to appreciate

God’s sweet pleasures as they meet our gait,

What was, has faded into the past

Leaving remnants to soften the last.

As time alone fast winnows away

Visions return to lighten the day

Although the picture’s not always clear

Moments of clarity do appear.

God in His wisdom which we may share

Guarantees all the depth of His care !

This heart of mine it hungers so

Too much to say before we go

The words don’t come so easy now

Caught in the throat, sometimes somehow.

A simple act of nature’s need

Bids all who dare, take care indeed

The changes come and fall away

Too soon we’ll meet that fInal day !

In the distant fields, row on row

Where all the stalwart poppies grow

God’s crimson plumes wave in the breeze

Their masses reaching to the trees

Across the hills and o’er the plains

With multitudes of mounting aims,

Who’s heard the call both loud and clear

And knows the day of judgement’s near ?

The quiet of the lonely night

Now  fills my waiting ears

The silence funnels all the fright

Into my wildest fears !

I cannot halt to hear the sound

Of all God’s creatures shuffling round

The night’s so full of shadows stark

I feel the fear here in the dark

Each movement that I note betrays

The consequence of former days

I wait upon the Lord of Night

To lead me to the dawn’s daylight !

My heart is full, my dreams are worn

The days grow short, the nights forlorn

How much longer must we await

As God decides departure dates ?

 

THE FINAL DEAL ( 2018 ) 2018/01/21

As we age there’s much greater fears

Sometimes our days begin  with tears

Not from the aches we used to know

When we were fresh and game to go

Teardrops may fall with passing time

Searching for the end of our climb

Ask  fates that be to tell us why

At this late stage it’s norm to cry

The growing process is too real

While we await God’s final deal !
