Hear now the battle marchers’ roar

Sending our children off to war

If not for them who will it be

That gives their life to keep us free ?

With timid breath and frosted heart

Too many wait for life to start !

Tis true that tears are often sweet

That courage rises from defeat,

That wisdom needs to curb its cheek

With all those words that it may speak.

While silence is the calmest way

To channel all our fears away

It’s working hard that is the call

To save us from decline and fall !

I love You Lord, You are my strengths

I’d follow You to any lengths

You are courage and made me strong

And in Your care I do belong.

I am with You where ere You go

Through summer storm or winter’s snow

And when I die remember this

I beg of You, one parting kiss !

Sometimes I believe that I can’t take

Another bit of this heart to break

I’ve now gotten used to every crack

Soon it’s time to get my courage back.

I refuse to find myself abused

It’s unhealthy and I’m unamused

Perhaps with patience there is a way

For me to chase all my fears away

I know that the Lord is always there

I’m assured that He is just and fair !

 

NOSTALGIA ( 2016 ) 2016/07/29

Oh that yearning for times long past

Those youthful days that did not last

Where all our dreams began as hope

To bear no limits in their scope

For youth is that which knows no fear

Of obstacles both far and near.

Yet all too soon those days must pass

Like shadows in life’s looking glass

While time alone may leave its marks

As former youth on age embarks

There face anew another day

To pack their former life away !

 

PEACEFUL DREAM ( 2016 ) 2016/07/14

Now words are just those thoughts we say

Aloud to help us make our way

Around this world that shelters us

From acts too vile or ominous.

It seems the crass and most unjust

Use voices louder than they must

And overshout the gentle souls

To stop us reaching our true goals.

Let’s show them by one act supreme

They shan’t destroy our peaceful dream !
