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 !


ROSE OF SHARON ( 2018 ) 2018/05/20

A rose once in a garden grew

Nurtured by love and morning dew

Its flower so sweet beyond compare

Which God and all the angels shared

A beauty rare enough indeed

To comfort all who have the need.

The Rose of Sharon was the name

And from the fields that’s where He came

A beauty which reflects today

In all we know, in every way

The strength and wisdom that survives

It’s how we know God’s still alive !

On a lonely road in an empty place

When the bugle calls and a trumpet plays

And the wild wind blows o’er deserted plain

It stirs an old heart to revive again !

This earth is full of mirth and joy

That visits every girl and boy

Who’ve known about the treasures of

Our Lord’s unfettered vows of love.

We are His children who’ve been taught

To follow in the path He’s wrought

He won’t desert or leave us cold

We are included in His fold !

The simplest pleasures that I will miss

Are an unexpected sticky kiss,

Tiny fingers pulling at my hair

And  peek-a-boos meant for two to share.

There is so much joy small children bring

Into each day of just plain living

Their hopes and fears or their smiles and tears

Gifting our lives with surprise and cheers !

A little love, a little care

A smile or two for all to share

A kindly word, a firm handshake

A promise that we’ll not forsake

An open heart with willing hands

To aid our friends in foreign lands,

Respect for freedom’s rule of law

With truth for all forever more !

Hooray, hooray,  I’m home today

This time let’s pray I’m here to stay

The road is long, the hill is steep

And I’ve a rendez-vous to keep.

I’m old and worn on my last leg,

Far too tired to try to beg

I’ve kept my eye upon the ball

Waiting to hear His final call.

The day is here, it’s on its way

But time and place no one can say

I thank you Lord for being there

Reminding me how much You care !
