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 !

 

THE MESSAGE ( 2016 ) 2016/06/09

I can’t foretell the story of what each life may hold

Because all are different, some timid, some are bold

We’re sure throughout the years that truth is bound to unfold

Pray we’ll accept this message before we are too old !

 

COMMON DESTINY ( 2016 ) 2016/03/26

The moment’s come to bid goodbye

To all I love ere I should die

For time is swift as we all know

One can’t command it stop or go.

The end is quick, affords no choice

We are adrift without a voice

It matters not the age we are

Or if we’ve traveled wide or far.

The goal is clear enough to see

Just how each one is dear to me

Since all must pass, as is the case

It ‘s still the rule none can erase !

 

NOT FAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/02/25

We little know or can surmise

What fate will bring or life surprise

Each day begins with a clean slate

That offers chance upon its plate.

A new beginning one and all

The chips of life await the call

But who will win or who will lose

I do not know who gets to choose.

Enough to say I cannot bear

Too many times life is not fair !
