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  !”

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 !

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 !

 

 

 

PAST THE END ( 2018 ) 2018/10/22

Tis soon the dawn, the day begins

As time is short, nobody wins

The loser fades away discreet

Then who’s left standing on his feet  ?

All life is not peaches and cream

Fair or honest, a piper’s dream

While truth gets lost along the way

Is no one there who’ll have a say ?

Remember, only God is just

And worthy of our total trust

He is the Hero and the Friend

Who bides with each far past the end !

As I awaken each morning what do I see

But a room full of emptiness staring at me

And a page in a book that has not been writ yet

Like a chapter in life that I’ll never forget

As the dawn turns to dusk and the curtains are drawn

God give me the courage to just keep moving on !

How little do we know of life

Its loss and gains, its joys and strife

How soon before we all must find

The courage to all fears unwind ?

 

DO NOT FORGET TODAY   9/11/2001.

 

OUR FRIENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/22

Here am I wrapt within the tide

Of where all hopes and fears reside

As surging life and death are found

Beneath, above and all around

While time bides with us to the end

And God and angels all befriend !
