We love You Lord,  and  beg of You

Give each the strength to see life through,

This  dearth of help that now may be

The  darkest  night we’ll ever see,

Or longest  day we’ll ever know

As in our lives  will  sadness grow.

Because of You,  we’ve traveled  far

To reach the Comfort  that You are !

 

AMEN.

This is my home, my place of birth

The dearest spot to me on earth

Because it’s where my life did start,

I learned to love and use my heart.

For every moment of each day

When I was taught to speak and pray

This is the place I shall recall

That still remains the best of all.

A gentle touch, a tender hug

A handshake or a kindly tug

Are ways we show how much we care

And promise always to be there !

 

MOMENTS OF CLARITY ( 2018 ) 2018/08/13

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 !

You love me Lord, I’m sure of that

Without Your care my world is flat

For very long I was this child

Consumed by disposition mild,

I’d always been a fan robust

Where manners are thought of as must

And try so hard to save a place

Here in my heart for God’s sweet grace !

 

EARLY MORNING ROUNDS ( 2018 ) 2018/03/09

A glow of orange floods each room

To banish all life’s doom and gloom

The sun’s rays bouncing off the cots

If they are filled or they are not.

The morning stirs, the day begins

We cannot know who’ll lose, who wins,

The halls are quiet like a mouse

There are few sounds about the house.

I hear tip-toes along the hall

A squeaky wheel, a pregnant stall

The silence drowns my every thought

Too sad this spot where some are brought !

Oh Lamb of God, I come to Thee

The bastion of our liberty

I beg of You to set me free.

Untie my wings and let me fly

Into the reaches of the sky

Ere pride and love have passed me by !

WATCH MY BACK ( 2018 ) 2018/02/13

Sometimes the world seems quite enraged

While I am far from full engaged

With all the trappings we require

To feed our hearts smallest desire.

What’s happened to old fashioned ways

Like the joy of unfettered days

Help me please to stay on the track

I need some one to watch my back !
