Memory is a powerful tool

Not governed by sets of standard rule

A list of items hidden away

To safely keep for another day,

The human mind, a knowledge beyond

May save the secrets of which we’re fond,

A shadow here or a whisper there

Moments in time we chose not to share

These are the treasures that we may find

When we have courage to speak our mind !

It little matters what we say

Moment to moment, day to day

Our time is come, we can’t forget

As one by one, our hearts regret.

The past we’ve known, that it may be

Sweet echoes of eternity,

As sad farewell must turn away

Our hope that begs a new today !

 

 

THEY FOUGHT AND DIED ( 2018 ) 2018/05/28

There is this call that I now hear

It happens every time each year

The bells peal out and my heart cries

Takes all my strength to face goodbyes !

There is no way I can convey

The sadness that I feel this day

So many wars for all those boys

Who early left their childhood toys

To wear that uniform each chose

Before their lives came to a close.

So be it blue or white or green

Brown, khaki, tan or in between

Whatever color works for you

They fought and died, red, white and blue !

THIS IN MEMORIAM  1776 – 2018

 

 

 

NO COWARD IN VICTORY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/27

I sailed down mem’ry lane today

Reviewing things that we might say

And thought about it long and hard

I wonder, have you embraced God ?

Since you and I did not agree

On ways each handled destiny

I’d like to think we shared a view

Of all that would be right to do.

Now you’ve been gone for quite awhile

You earned your honor hero style

This is one lesson you’ve taught me

There’s  no coward in victory !

 

SCHEME AND DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/04/25

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

This is the wrong time of the year

However, I need ask because

Too soon the holidays are here.

We get so very bothered now

Just trying to keep up with life

It’s slipt away, I don’t know how

Between our courage and our strife.

I’d like to think that you and I

Perhaps could share the central theme

While knowing one day all shall die

Each needs accept both scheme and dream !

The quiet of the lonely night

Now  fills my waiting ears

The silence funnels all the fright

Into my wildest fears !

 

OUR NUMBERS GROW ( 2017 ) 2017/11/16

This gentle thought does make its way

Into the musings of each day

What is it that our God has seen

As He looks down upon earth’s scene

Can it be that our numbers grow

Who wait on Him to start His show ?
