LOOK DOWN ON ME ( 2019 ) 2019/12/11

May the Lord above look down on me

With kindness and generosity

May He clasp my hand through darkest night

And save my soul from old Satan’s might

May His love warm me when it is cold

And cushion my steps aft I’ve grown old !

AMEN.

 

HOW MUCH I CARE ( 2019 ) 2019/07/20

A little bit of humor,  her smile to show she’d dare

The sound of laughter on our ears floating in the air

A tiny  piece of heaven for  every one to share

Today’s my mother’s birthday and oh, how much I care !

 

NEVER END ( 2019 ) 2019/07/19

The day is gray and full of gloom

There’s not a  rainbow in my room

The sun  itself has hid  away

Refusing to come out and play

The air is  heavy and  morose

It’s  hard to breathe and ever close !

Perhaps the weather will perk up

Before it is our time to sup

We’ll take a glass of  wine or  two

Remembering  our  rendezvous

And ask the Lord to help us  spend

One evening that may never end !

 

 

GROW WINGS AND FLY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/09

Oh how I wish that we may speak

If I were strong  and not so weak

And had a chance to beg the Lord

That we  might be of one accord

Thus sleep with God and bird, may I

Perhaps one day grow wings and fly ?

There’s not a day that passes by

When each one’s dream may bid goodbye

There’s not  a night without a star

Reminding us how near or far

The journey of our lives will be

In terms of our expectancy.

For we are here a short time all

Without control o’er win or fall

It is the Master of our fate

Who knows our exit and its date !

 

 

HE IS THERE ( 2019 ) 2019/01/13

Tis Sunday morn a day of rest

Enjoy the day and dream your best

Pick up the pieces if you care

And be assured that He is there !

 

OH ITALY ( 2018 ) 2018/11/19

Where the moon comes over the mountain

And the stars disappear in the sea

There’s a statue rains in a fountain

In a special place they call Trevi.

In the past I have been there often

It’s such a heavenly  place to be

As I remember how hearts soften

And the day I’ll return there to see !

 

THE BATTLE’S O’ER ( 2018 ) 2018/10/20

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 10:47 am

Lone vigil kept throughout the night

Doth end in early morning’s light

The stars all seem to bid goodbye

The wind reduced to but a sigh

Seems quiet has become God’s will

The battle’s o’er,  the heart now still !

 

THE FINAL DAY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/13

This heart of mine it hungers so

Too much to say before we go

The words don’t come so easy now

Caught in the throat, sometimes somehow.

A simple act of nature’s need

Bids all who dare, take care indeed

The changes come and fall away

Too soon we’ll meet that fInal day !

Good morning Lord, this is another day

With all new miracles spreading our way

Among the olden dreams we still expect

Like fantasies perchance that we reject

Who knows what favor God will deign to show

Let’s give it time to spread and shed and grow !

 

OUTCOME IS A DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/03/24

Today I trudged along the road

While packing quite a bulky load

My spirit crushed by all the stress

My soul in pain, under duress.

I wish I knew what I should do

To help myself and see this through

At times I feel the battle’s lost

Since I can’t count the total cost

I’ll keep on trying to hold fast

This effort will not be my last

Since God and me are like a team

Let’s pray the outcome is a dream !

 

 

 

CLOSE SIDE BY SIDE ( 2018 ) 2018/03/15

Now through it all, the thick and thin

You’ve always known to count me in

I stand with God, I always will

Until this heart of mine lies still !

There is  a thought that comes to mind,

Beyond this place what shall I find

A world that’s known to God alone

Where all our sins have been atoned,

One path that leads to peace at last

Our worldliness is in the past

Here gentle lamb and lion lay

Close side by side, day after day !

 

 

 

WAKEUP ( 2018 ) 2018/03/07

On a lonely road in an empty place

When the bugle calls and a trumpet plays

And the wild wind blows o’er deserted plain

It stirs an old heart to revive again !

 

THE SYCAMORE ( 2018 ) 2018/03/01

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:57 am
Tags: , , , , ,

My eyes observe huge sycamores entwined

Where branches, crowded, up to heaven wind

Quite barren now of leaves or other frill

This vision of the sky gives me a chill

There rises through that mass of jumbled limbs

A dazzle of congested psalms and whims.

I’ve never seen such turns and twists before

Wherein my memory could ever store

Massive as all these scattered arms may be

Seems they stretch out to touch infinity !

 

 

MY MOM ( 2018 ) 2018/02/21

Not long ago in this same place

The last time that I saw her face,

Today’s the day that I recall

The darkness of death’s knell did fall.

How sad that we shall never greet

Or hug and kiss when e’er we meet

I am so sorry that you’ve gone

We’ll catchup soon, it won’t be long !

 

I FEEL LOST ( 2018 ) 2018/01/24

Well there it is, seems miles away

I’m not sure that I want to stay

It’s too much trouble to keep track

I’d like to have my courage back.

My life is slipping from my hand

I’ve lost control, I lack command

It seems there’s no one left to hear

Solutions have become unclear.

My world grows smaller day by day

I pray and hope I’ll find my way !

 

MY OWN ( 2018 ) 2018/01/06

The love I knew when I was small

With hugs and squeezes by the score

That was the best that I recall

Along with being kissed galore !

I never thought that as I grew

All those moments would stay with me

And add to all the joys I knew

To be my favorite memory.

It’s long ago, the times now past

I wonder where the years have flown

I’ve never found a love to last

Or one that I could call my own !

 

 

 

 

 

 

CONFESSION ( 2018 ) 2018/01/02

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:41 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I’ve always known I was a child

Polite and kind, ne’er rude or wild

Perhaps that is the reason why

My passive nature gets me by.

I wish that I could gather strength

Pursue my dreams to greater length

What is it folks are fighting for

To curry favor, change decor ?

Now I have traveled very far

Across the seas, both ship and shore

My heart has weathered many storms

And travesties beyond the norm !

 

My curly hair that used to be

Has now begun deserting me

It is not washing down the drain

Just tired curling up again.

While fate has opened every door

To follow through or settle score

I wonder what may soon occur

And to what power I must defer ?

The hours too fast are speeding by

All clouded with both tears and sigh

Oh gracious Lord now hear my plea

My hope is to abide with Thee !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE YEAR IS ENDING ( 2017 ) 2017/12/29

The year is ending, tis soon o’er

We’ve left the cold and closed the door

Begin again with brand new start

To lift  the caution from each heart

As all those moments we recall

Ere all the shades of night may fall

Among the times we shan’t regret

And those that haven’t happened yet !

 

 

WHEN COURAGE ABATES ( 2017 ) 2017/12/21

I’m walking alone on this long, long road

My soul is laden with a heavy load

The pace is labored but my aim intent

There are no excuses left to invent.

I have had a dream of these ups and downs

Some full of smiles and a few with deep frowns

It’s wisdom we need when courage abates

To give life a chance before it’s too late !

 

WE’VE NO REGRET ( 2017 ) 2017/11/03

Why do we dream, what’s that about

And why is life so full of doubt,

I cannot question, God exists

My trust in Him ever persists  !

This world is all there is  to share

In time with love and hope and care

Though lives of men have limits set

We promise Lord we’ve no regret !

 

NOTHING REAL ( 2017 ) 2017/08/17

I hear the sound of marching feet

Parading down lengths of main street

I heard the voice of those who died

With their last breath, they gave us pride.

The earth ran red with their lost blood

The tears they cried were like a flood

One cannot know what they would feel

Or understand there’s nothing real !

 

 

 

VALUE FAITH AGAIN ( 2017 ) 2017/07/07

The days are fleeting this I know

As dreams and heartaches come and go

The time is now to loose the chain

And learn to value faith again !

 

TO NEVER TRY ( 2017 ) 2017/04/20

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:30 am

Is there a goal that one must seek

To make us stronger, not so weak,

A purpose that each one must find

To help escape a path unkind.

A babe is born most are the same

Except for color, sex and name

It’s left to them to win or lose

The way of life that each shall choose.

Some win, some fail, some others cry

And there are those who never try !

This is God’s giant stage and we are players all

We tread upon the boards and pray we do not fall !

 

YULETIDE ( 2016 ) 2016/12/02

My heart is full of Yuletide dreams

I’m not quite sure what it all means

This year is ending soon it seems

And I’m caught up in winter scenes.

There is a quiver in the trees

My faith endures, my soul perceives

It whispers soft into the breeze

Thank you  dear Lord, my world believes !

 

FREEDOM’S RING ( 2016 ) 2016/11/08

The air is charged with thoughts intense

What shall we do in our defense

The days are numbered who can say

Who will the hero be today ?

Will they be travelling on a horse

Or sailing on a separate course

And will this choice affect our lives

Of course it must one does surmise ?

Let’s pray that God is on our side

Along life’s road He’ll be our guide

We need to take our country back

Stay safe from harm and all attack !

 

 

 

 

REPRISE ( 2016 ) 2016/08/17

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:36 am

I now have dreamt a thousand dreams

Not one of them came true

For they were naught but crazy schemes

And foolishness we knew.

Our dreams are meant to give us hope

Perhaps a brand new chance

No matter what the age or scope

Reprise is our last dance !
