My  life  is  o’er,  how  fast  it  went

I  wonder  where  my  time’s  been  spent

It’s  passing  by  too  swiftly  now

The  cradle  has  long  left  the  bough.

I  shall  not  pass this  way  again,

Perhaps  I  may  remember  when

The  days  have  gone  or  passed on  by

Each  full of  smiles or  tears  we’ve  cried.

Oh  how I  wish  that  I  would  be

Some  creature  flitting,  tree  to  tree

Who’s  spent  its  life  up  in  the  air

Where  only  God and  birds may  share !

The wind  is  in the  willow,

………..A chill is in the breeze

The babes are in the nest and

…………Rest safely as you please !

Love cannot be life’s everything

It’s faith and hope and blossoming

It’s dreams and plans and mystery

Our spring and fall, our destiny !

It is the total of the scene

On this huge stage that’s in-between

Our days of nascence and demise

That learn to live with compromise !

Oh tiny babe with wrinkled skin

Today your new life does begin

You squirm about midst anxious cries

Can’t wait to see your laughing eyes.

That little button is your nose

Those wiggly digits are your toes

Your hands do have a mighty grasp

Onto the fingertips they clasp.

As time moves on the story shows

The loving way your nature grows

Into the child who’ll learn to be

In tune with God’s community

While in our hearts this newborn lives

It is to God that glory gives !

I awakened this morning and looked all around

I wanted to share with you the comfort I’d found.

In the smallest of ways on the happiest days

A great flock of birds seemed to be chirping God’s praise,

I laughed hard at their breadth but disturbed not their song

And wished with the whole of my heart I could belong.

Then I suddenly thought of that first holy night

And all the creatures of God that witnessed the sight

What a wonder it was, what a glorious gift

With the power to heal and the will to uplift.

The beasts of the fields welcomed His coming to earth

While the stars in the sky celebrated His birth !

There was a child so long ago

Born in a manger, cold and low

That gentle child became the man

To carry out God’s master plan.

I wish I had been there that day

When He was born so far away

To celebrate that happening

The birth of our beloved King !

Welcome winds whisper sweet nothingness in my ear

While silent shards of sunlight pierce the shadows sphere

The morn has whisked away the demons of the night

And left untouched the eagerness of early light.

Thus begins anew the cycle which shall revive

Perhaps that character we all need to survive

Another day, another time, another place

Imagining the fragile dawn of human race.
