My dearest boy I miss you so

How sad was I,  you chose to go

Of all those dreams that you did spin

When did your fear of truth begin ?

Your spirits rose with every thought

How could your inner self get caught

With real foresight that you possessed

What was it cost you your success ?

Who was it told you all would fail

And stole the wind from out your sail ?

 

 

NOT WITH FEAR ( 2019 ) 2019/01/31

Now I have lived so many years

Years filled with hope and thick with tears

Times when I thought that I was done

And others that were full of fun.

I’ve known the wars and tragedy

And lost those who were dear to me

I left my heart on foreign shore

For those that I shall see no more.

Sometimes  I’ve wondered how I could

Because my heart’s not made of wood

My thanks to God, I’ve come this far

I’m battle weary but unscarred.

I sense that I’ve withstood the test

And hope I’ve given all my best

The end for sure draws ever near

I face my God but not with fear !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

 

SPECIAL CROSS ( 2018 ) 2018/12/30

Lord, how much longer must we wait

To meet our Maker, seal our faith

What vision is it we need see,

Embrace our hearts and set us free ?

What battle more than we shall dare

Or journey far that all may share,

Where in the end of win or loss

Each faces his own special cross !

 

 

 

 

TO VICTORY ( 2018 ) 2018/05/30

We’ve seen the shadows on the wall

Heard echoes of the clarion’s call

The battle signals rang out clear

To fall at last on hollowed ear.

There’s no mistake upon the ground

Or impact of each magic sound

While trumpets blow and blare away

This message for the latter days

A change is coming, wait and see

To wing the way to victory !

 

 

 

A BIT OF SUN ( 2018 ) 2018/03/13

Oh can you hear the constant sound

Of weather rageing all around

We’re in the middle of a storm

That’s taken such an ugly form.

I’m glad that I am not outside

The wind might take me for a ride

Although perhaps that could be fun

If only we’d a bit of sun !

 

 

TIS JUST THE FIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/08/29

Our world is really in a mess

Growing much worse I must confess

Seems someone, though we don’t know who,

Has played his dirty trick or two

And left us all in one great bind

For some solution we must find.

We’re upside down and downside out

We’ve lost our strength and have no clout

So buckle up and gather strength

We need to go to any length

If we’re to win this bloody war

Tis just the fight we’re ready for !

 

INFAMY ( 2017 ) 2017/05/02

Sometimes the heart is more inclined

To seek respite and courage find

Among the days of lesser times

When this world bode in older climes.

For where we are, not where we’ve been,

Is caught in chance and grief and sin

There’s scant honor left, we may find

In all the hours to still unwind.

Oh blessed Lord,  take care that we

Escape this time of infamy !
