There was a child born long ago

It is a story we all know

A sky bathed in celestial light

With one star burning ever bright.

That tiny babe lay mongst the sheep

With angels guarding Him asleep

The heavens knew and marked that place

With holiness time can’t erase.

That baby boy would grow to be

The saviour of humanity

A whole world knows His blessed name

There’s been none else of greater fame !

And so it is each day begins

We are all equal, no one wins

The wheels, they turn and turn again

But who’ll survive remember when ?

The moment comes then fades away

In all of this, who gets to stay

As life continues its short climb

Then faces change time after time ?

Though no one wins in this relay

Existence spans without delay

The days of man all numbered are

And no one ever gets too far !

We know super heroes are not real

Still they do possess this great appeal

To boys and girls either young or old

Loving  the action both brash and bold.

Make-believe can be a lot of fun

Perhaps not a dish for everyone

Let’s make room for reality here

To help us keep pace through every year.

Pretend is not a part of the truth

With which one hopes to imbue our youth

Learning early who you really are

Is the surest way to light your star !

 

 

 

 

DOWN TO A MAN ( 2017 ) 2017/03/31

Our lives are cast in many ways

With results for all of our days

No one may change what has begun

For history’s been set and done.

We hope and pray we do not fail

And of our strengths we shall avail

So each will do the best he can

To fill that role down to a man !

Now as for me when I am dead

My ashes will wind up instead

Upon the surface of the sea

Tis such a briny place to be

There float away to foreign lands

And rest at last on distant sands !

I’ve sailed upon the seas of life

Both when it’s calm or full of strife

And I can say without a doubt

That safety nests in faith devout.

There is no time to make amends

Nor look about in search of friends

For God demands the total count

Of all we’ve done in what amount,

The good, the bad, the inbetween

Of what we’ve said and what we mean

He understands and will forgive

He is the reason we all live !

 

JOURNEY ( 2016 ) 2016/06/17

Now this has been a journey long

From birth to death, one’s telltale song

As we have been upon life’s road

Each burdened by our heavy load.

It matters not what we have thought

There in this net all have been caught

And so it is that we shall be

A cog in God’s eternity !
