I’ve  wandered down  on memory lane

Hoping  to visit  old  friends again

Trying  to recall  what used  to be

Traveling  back in my memory

So  many shadows along the way

Of  all we have met here day by day

Celebrate  occasions one by one

From  early  morn till each  day is done !

Here  in the silence  of  the night

One finds the courage and  the might

Of  all that’s  proffered in  His sight

By God  whose  judgement is the Light !

I’ve  often  wondered  what it  is  I’d do

If I  had the  chance to  begin anew

I’m  not so sure that I should venture there

Without someone Special  willing to care,

For life on  one’s own  can be a bit much

Especially if you have  lost your touch

How I do  wish that tomorrow may  bring

Another day with a sweet song to sing

To open  my eyes and  give me the will

To reach out to God for His magic pill !

I  find myself  alone  at last

With memories of times long passed

Regrets  and sorrows  I can’t lose

And if I’ve choice,  some I won’t choose.

Days when my heart reached for the sky

As all my dreams did upward fly

And life had opened up the door

That held my hopes forevermore.

Alas those dreams did disappear

To fill my life with cautious fear

I’ve little strength left to help fight

Without God’s aid to do what’s right !

A little voice within my head

Whispered to me,  “get out of bed,

Stop feeling sorry for yourself

And rise up from that dusty shelf. ”

“It’s not as bad as what you think

Please move back safely from the brink

Tis time to pay attention to

All that the Lord has done for you !”

“Wake up, wake up, ere it’s too late

Just how much longer will you wait ?

This scene is coming to an end

Make haste to mend your fence, my friend  !”

 

 

 

HUMAN DIGNITY ( 2018 ) 2018/12/08

So many words are ever sweet

And rest in bundles at my feet

Syllables echoed on my ear

The sound of which I yearn to hear.

I do enjoy the accolades

Of ages past, forgotten days,

When men of words would have their sway

And you and I might nod “hooray”

For those of old much braver be

To speak for human dignity !

 

 

KEEP UP YOUR GUARD ( 2018 ) 2018/10/26

Tis true, tis true, all heaven knows

There is a feeling, grows and grows

We need You Lord, the night blows bold

Tis sad to think,  but youth gets old.

They too must trod this selfsame road

Perhaps bearing a greater load

Remember that each breath we take

Has many varied paths at stake.

Make sure each step is firmly gripped

Without a chance, footings have slipped

Take care secure one true regard

Think safety and keep  up your guard !
