Long time  ago when I  was young

We had  great songs  that could  be sung

About  our nation and our lives

And thousands  over time  survives.

These words of courage  carry on

With  impact of the clarion

They sing of life and  love and care

Of hope and joy,  grief and despair.

Let’s lend  our  voice to all we feel

Because  our  sentiment  is real

Like all  the  verses we have heard

Repeat  to us  God’s  promised word !

My  dearest friend I’m  missing you

With  all my heart  when I am blue

We were great friends through all the years

Times were we  laughed or cried real  tears.

Some days were good and  some were bad

We beat  the odds  though life was  sad

I  truly  wish  you were  still  here

For one last  time to bend  your ear !

 

MISS YOU.

As I  reflect on  years  gone  by

And all the  times  I’ve said  goodbye

To  those faces  I have  adored

With so  much feeling that  I’ve stored

In the  recess of my  best part

The center of my  loving  heart.

Hold on,  hold on,  we’re not yet  done

There is lots  more that is to  come

Open your arms  and your  heart too

Because  your best  is up to  you !

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 !

 

 

TO SAVE A PLACE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/24

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 !
