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 !

 

WE’RE TOO OLD ( 2018 ) 2018/11/16

When most of the darkness leaves us

And we are at last all alone

There’s no one left to deceive us

We are basic’ly  on our own.

In the midst of our lifetime’s storm

When good sense and health have vanished

Imagine that this is the norm

And what’s left here has been banished.

When the new replaces the old

And life seems to have gone astray

Remember we once were that bold

But short of a permanent stay !

 

THE STATE OF MAN ( 2018 ) 2018/09/18

Morning shades of drab tans and gray

Are always getting in the way

Of peach and golds to shocking pinks

That welcome most as sunrise sinks.

Oh what I’d give at last to see

The rainbow this world used to be

Where all felt a great need to share

With those who chanced to visit there.

I’ve often wished that I might find

A fairy wand, the magic kind,

To do the job tales tell it can

And much improve the state of man !

 

JUST DREAMING ( 2018 ) 2018/09/17

There was this time when I was young

That many words tripped off my tongue

And as those dreams filled up my mind

The future was what I would find.

I used to wish that I could be

Some nice young man’s true destiny

It ne’er did happen I must add

Perhaps that made me rather sad.

Now as the road is winding down

I keep on smiling, seldom frown

So that my life can be pure bliss

Those dreams I’ve seen end with a kiss!
