Oh  blessed Lord, see how my heart grieves

When  another of Your  children leaves

This  generation has missed so  much

No  love or kisses,  no  tender touch

A  prayer or  two for what  used to be

And  a hint  of things we’ll  never see.

I  beg You  Lord  to find him a  place

Help  him to rest  in  a  special  space

Show  him the  love  that  he’s  never known

Treat  him as if  the sky were his home

Answer  his queries best as  You can

Help  him  remember he  died a man !

TO MICHAEL WITH LOVE.

It occurs to me the world’s upside down

And instead of smiling it wears a frown

Now that’s not the way it was meant to be

With its splendid vistas and great beauty.

Stop for a moment and take a real look

There’s billions of photos filling each book

No one can create a new mountain peak

It’s those who try climbing of whom we speak.

The wisdom of God is beyond our reach

No matter how much or how hard they teach

The world is not ours, one we could not make

All have a short span to visit not break !

What is this sound falls on my ears

It is the echo of our fears

There’s no recourse, we cannot wait

Barbarians are at the gate !

 

SHOW US HOW ( 2017 ) 2017/07/29

I do believe that most try hard

To keep their faith and honor God

But stuff keeps getting in the way

It seems to happen every day.

We need a plan to get us through

To teach us all what we must do

Dear Lord above we need You now

Whom else is there to show us how ?

 

 

RETRIBUTION ( 2017 ) 2017/03/17

I have often pondered how it’s done

How life progresses aft battles won

Or how one knows when it is enough

As the road runs easy, smooth or rough ?

Who makes a choice either high or low

When the winds of life begin to blow

And how is it one comprehends

If the paths we follow know no ends ?

Is there a voice that but few may hear

To whisper softly into each ear

Take care my child as the way is steep

And the hole we dig may be too deep ?

 

 

 

 

 

RELEASE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/26

There are those days when I recall

The summers, winter, spring and fall

Of years now past and gone astray

Like thoughts and things I’ve stored away.

Let caution be the path I choose

I may not win but fear to lose

But share will I the pleasures found

And cherish all treasures unbound.

May God grant all eternal peace

To  find at last our souls release !

 

 

 

 

WAR TORN ( 2016 ) 2016/08/06

See all the pieces on the ground

What is this image we have found

The damaged parts of each lost soul

All crumpled bare without a goal.

Now where did all of this begin

From far away or quite close in

For this is what a war will do

Tear all apart that once were two

A war is such a vengeful thing

And wears no peace upon its wing !
