The  sun  is  fading  in  the  west

My  world  unravels  as  a  test

I  bear  the  weight  of  my  belief

Too  soon  there’s  nothing  left  but  grief.

Awake  my  heart  and  try  to  say

Great  words  before  you  melt  away

Like  Dorothy  ere  she  is  caught

In  winds  life’s  misery  has  brought.

Command  the  soul,  be  steady  now

And  to  its  pain   refuse  to  bow

Then  keep  your place  in  heart  and  mind

Until  God’s  rest  that  you’ll  soon  find  !

WALK WITH ME.

I  have never found myself depressed

Tis  like facing the world  half-dressed

I  have never understood the term

But  I  suppose I will have to learn.

A  foolish thought that I cannot shake

Oh days to come,  please give me a break

I  can’t  imagine time that is lost

As an exception,  what is the cost ?

I  pledge today I  shall do my best

To  laugh and smile  and pass every test

To keep my spirits  pleasant  and charmed

Present  no reason  to be alarmed!

 

 

 

 

DAY OF RECKONING ( 2019 ) 2019/01/04

I thank You Lord, for all my dreams

And all my silly hare-brained schemes,

For all the joy that I have known

In spite of all life’s sadness shown.

Like those whose paths have crossed with mine

Adding to that,  past valentines,

A birthday message gone astray

Or those I’ve loved who went away,

Remember Lord that I’m still here

My day of reckoning grows near !

 

AMEN.

There was a place that I loved best

Besides the sea, at water’s edge

So many hours that I spent there

All types of weather, foul or fair

I learned back then to patient be

Accept God’s will and wait to see.

Well that was then and this is now

I have survived life’s storms somehow

There’s this advice I offer you

To thine ownself  be kind and true !

The hum of life is all around

Hear now its rapid growing sound

Why even bees get in their share

You’ll find they’re busy everywhere.

The leaves are rustling overhead

I wish I knew what’s being said

The world today’s a mystery

With much to learn and more to see

Oh blessed Lord why must we wait

For angels to unlock the gate ?

Can you hear the tumult of the wind

It whines aloud  that it be let in

The shutters tremble, the shingles roar

Can you feel the rattlng of the door ?

The mighty wind blows so fierce and loud

Where it gets caught bullying each cloud

Why won’t it move in a calmer way

And save its power for another day ?

With each new day a bright sunrise

From dawn to dusk this huge surprise

The world about so full and lush

O’ershadowed by the nighttimes hush

Let’s all embrace the calm we find

God help us now from stress unwind !

The steeple bells ring loud and clear

They seem to sing “So glad you’re here”

That joyous song now fills the air

Advising spring will soon be there.

See how my heart does skip a beat

I sense a spriteness in my feet

The sky is clear, the air is clean

The peace of God’s upon the scene !

The wind is in the willow

the dew is on the ground

God is in His heaven and

His peace is all around.

I’ve loved the water all my life

The sounds of water soothe my strife

A river, stream or peaceful lake

Will always be my piece of cake.

The waterfalls take special place

They paste a smile upon my face

Seawater laps in quiet ways

And brings great peace into my days.

But best of all those waves that shout

And call my name invite me out

Oh what I’d give for just once more

To laze upon the ocean’s shore !
