Now  I’ve loved God  my whole life through

Without  my faith what  would I do ?

The  sum of all the good  one does

And   past visions of what once was

Are  the reasons to  carry on

When  it appears  all hope is gone

Let’s  take a chance  with  one last try

Before time  fades into  goodbye !

Can  you hear winter winds break through the trees

With  frozen breath and chill,  an instant freeze ?

I hear the crackling ice,  it falls away

Reminds us  weather changes day by day,

It  sort of  vacillates and jumps about

Exposing  purpose,  choice,  free will  and doubt.

So let us now  our precious  chances take

Pray  God  we’ve no  more branches  left to break !

Oh how I wish that we may speak

If I were strong  and not so weak

And had a chance to beg the Lord

That we  might be of one accord

Thus sleep with God and bird, may I

Perhaps one day grow wings and fly ?

There’s not a day that passes by

When each one’s dream may bid goodbye

There’s not  a night without a star

Reminding us how near or far

The journey of our lives will be

In terms of our expectancy.

For we are here a short time all

Without control o’er win or fall

It is the Master of our fate

Who knows our exit and its date !

 

 

A MOTHER’S LOVE ( 2019 ) 2019/04/01

How much is it I loved you, like flowers loved the gentle rain

As soldiers loved the glory of those great battles won or gained

How can I explain God’s miracles and that which I’ve now learned

The fervor of His majesty into our hearts has been burned.

There is no other answer and to seek one would be in vain

For all we pray, we know there is not a chance we’ll meet again

I’ve promised you my darling, we shall not e’er run out of time

As long as you remember why and for whom we’ve been consigned !

 

 

 

FORMS OF SLAVERY ( 2019 ) 2019/01/16

Oh sad it was, too sad to bear

To live a life full of despair

Twas never meant to be a chain

To anchor one to fear or pain.

How simple all our lives might seem

And open to most sorts of dream

If only peace were there for free

For all life’s forms of slavery !

 

 

ALL LIFE HAS GOT ( 2018 ) 2018/11/23

There is a land where dreams are made

In sunny glen and evening shade

Where every day contains a chance

Again to find life’s lost romance !

Perchance that hope might come to be

Some wish filled with sweet ecstacy

Wherein the heart that knew regret

Despite its pain, learned to forget !

Perhaps for those who’ve passed this way

Our Lord above has made delay

And metered out a final shot

To give it all this life has got !
