Oh  little lamb  so pure and sweet

You  lay there  at your Saviour’s feet

How  long before  your time has come

Your  destiny  will be undone ?

We  each one have  to make our way

Learn to accept  it day by day

And  pray that all we  touch in life

Will  help to heal  this world  in strife.

Move on,  move on,  without a pause

We carry on,  it is the cause  !

Life  dishes out  a lot of stuff

Before  too long  we’ve  had enough

The  tides of time,  sometimes too strong

Will  somehow carry  us along

To  events we have  never seen

Or  places  we have never been

I  believe  all  peace doth linger

At  the behest  of God’s  finger !

 

 

 

WHERE TO GO ( 2020 ) 2020/01/03

The  tears I shed are not for me

But  for all those who used to be

Part   of our world  now gone astray

Like  ashes of life’s  yesterday.

Once  each  possessed a name and face

And  came from a familial  place

They lived,  they loved,  they breathed the air

And  met the  destiny  all share.

How  strange that we who’ve  stayed behind

Have  yet our  destinies  to find

With  nought a  hint of what  comes next

Of  where  to go or  whom to text !

AMEN.

 

YOUR FRONT DOOR ( 2019 ) 2019/10/15

I’m  looking through the window glass

Observing  as  my  life  rolls  past

Still  wondering where I  have  been

Or  if  I’ll pass this  way again ?

How  strange is life  when  one is  young

And from  the  heart,  love’s song  is sung

The  words still echo  on  my ear

They bring me calm  and soothe  my fear.

Be  kind  dear  Lord,  now  that  tis o’er

Too  soon  I’ll  knock on Your  front door !

Now  I have  been a child  of  God at  every  blessed  age

And  I have lived  in awe of  Him  through  every  growing  stage

I’ve hoped  and wished and  dreamt that  He will hear my urgent  plea

Oh  gracious  Lord,  I love  You so,  please be  my  destiny !

 

 

FOR YOU AND ME ( 2019 ) 2019/06/20

I love You Lord, please take my hand

And lead me to the Promised Land

Show me the path to Latter Days

That I may follow in Your ways

Each child that listens soon will hear

God’s loving Message on his ear

Trust in the Lord, He will not fail

The world is His, each hill and vale

Like every thing the eye can see

Is made by Him for you and me !

 

AMEN.

There lives a love that waits for me

Beyond the reach of destiny

A love that is one’s legacy

And takes us to eternity !

 

OH CHILD OF GOD (2018 ) 2018/11/17

Oh, Child of God, so pure and sweet

The earth paid homage at your feet

Great wars were fought to save Your name

Your Image garners world wide fame.

You are the Sum of what we are

Yet, You have never travelled far

How wonderous that You should be

The Key to God’s eternity !

To love our God and country too

Those are the things I chose to do.

To furnish aid to those in need

Encourage others to succeed

Grant help to many who deserve

To earn a chance to give and serve.

It’s true our nation must be saved

If we are to escape this grave

Of shattered dreams, distorted facts,

Repeated crimes and heartless acts.

Please rescue us and keep us free

Lest we betray our destiny !

 

 

 

 

OPEN ALL OUR EYES ( 2018 ) 2018/04/20

I often think this plan we’ve made

Needs lots of help, a large band-aid

Like an old game we used to play

To whisk our idle hours away.

Remember this now if you please

When you’re on “Broadway” take your ease

You do not have to go to “jail”

Just whiz on by, do not post bail.

However when you pause on GO

Make ready for the final blow

For life is one great big surprise

It’s meant to open all our eyes !

This world we know is dying fast

It seems that  peace will never last

In truth it cannot ever win

There is no way we can begin.

The die was cast too long ago

There’s no route left to touch or grow

How sad that we have come this far

To barely reach or touch the bar.

We’ll bow our heads in feigned surprise

Since we have caused our own demise !

HIS HOLY NAME ( 2017 ) 2017/11/04

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 !

 

 

DAYS ARE NUMBERED ( 2017 ) 2017/10/26

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 !

 

LIGHT YOUR STAR ( 2017 ) 2017/10/10

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 !

 

 

ASHES ( 2016 ) 2016/09/19

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 !

 

EVALUATION ( 2016 ) 2016/08/10

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

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:01 am

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

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:56 am

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

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:20 am
Tags: , , , , ,

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 !

 

THE RIDE ( 2016 ) 2016/01/14

The night is long it’s dark and cold

The dreams we’ve dreamt have all grown old

A burst of air rushed through the door

Life’s covers slipt onto the floor.

What would I give to capture youth

Well I’m not sure, to tell the truth

Perhaps nought’s left to grant me strength

Or add to life a greater length.

I think that we each must decide

How long or short will be the ride !

 

OUR FATE ( 2016 ) 2016/01/05

There is a place that waits for me

Beyond the waves, across the sea

Perhaps a cove or sandy beach

Seawater splashed and unimpeached.

God’s creatures waiting one and all

Adhering to the Saviour’s call

We stand in line there to await

Determination of our fate !

 

WHATEVER MUST BE ( 2015 ) 2015/04/21

I have been to the top of the mountain to seek my destiny

I have walked through the valley of shadows to find my clarity

I have begged of the gods above me to silently hear my plea

There on the altar of justice I accept whatever must be !

 

COMPROMISE ( 2015 ) 2015/03/17

Love cannot be life’s everything

It’s faith and hope and blossoming

It’s dreams and plans and mystery

Our spring and fall, our destiny !

It is the total of the scene

On this huge stage that’s in-between

Our days of nascence and demise

That learn to live with compromise !

 

CYCLE OF LIFE ( 2015 ) 2015/02/13

Life is a giant mystery

All twists and turns, no victory

A winding path that’s gone astray

And often seems it’s lost its way.

It prowls the street when darkness falls

And answers when each morning calls

It spins itself into the winds

To where all life again begins !

 

FORBEARANCE ( 2014 ) 2014/12/29

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:35 am
Tags: , , ,

If we could see into the past

Oh what deeds we’d discard fast

Words we wished were never spoken

Promises that we have broken.

Oh what challenge this world now shows

And watch just how our wisdom grows

With all the courage we can save

To keep us smart and safe and brave.

But we this gift not yet received

While in our lives too much deceived

We know at last it is too late

We’re not the owners of our fate !
