HELP SAVE ME ( 2020 ) 2020/02/29

I  see the willows  in the wood

The  branches wave  like willows should

They  sweep the air  in mock surprise

To  shake the dreamdust  from my eyes

For  dreaming is  what I do best

When  I no longer  can protest

The  world about me  and its pain

That  cries aloud again,  again

Oh  Blessed Lord,  have mercy please

I  come to You on  bended knees

Help  save me from  old Satan’s  might

Should  he discover  me some night !

There’s  a tugging on my heartstrings

The  sound of Christmas music brings

Old  memories that fill my  brain

Are  here to haunt me  once again.

I  can’t  forget the times long gone

Those  dreams that we depended on

How  much time have we  yet to wait

Before  we meet at Heaven’s  Gate ?

 

 

LOFTY THOUGHTS ( 2019 ) 2019/12/04

Now  I  have climbed  the mountain high

And  struggled there to touch  the sky

I  dreamt of  visions I  had  seen

Somewhere  above and  in between

But  all that  time I  found instead

These  lofty thoughts  lived  in my  head !

 

 

WITHOUT YOU ( 2019 ) 2019/10/18

Oh  how I’ve dreamt that you and I

Would  be together by and by

Somewhere  upon an island near

Or  in some place that’s free of fear.

We’d chat about  our fav’rite things

Like  love and care and angel wings

I  miss your laugh and your bright smile

Though you’ve been gone a long,  long while.

It’s  been a road with ups and downs

Filled  with wise men,  some fools and clowns

I truly don’t  know  what to do

How shall I manage without you !

 

 

MY DREAM ( 2019 ) 2019/09/28

This  heart that beats  here in my chest

Sometimes  it needs to pause and rest

The  problems  that my  life conveys

Oftimes  puts  me  into  a daze .

I  wandered  lost in distant lands

As  time slipped through  my trembling hands,

My voice  it failed  and shan’t be heard

No,  not one  single  spoken word.

Perhaps with luck  I’ll pass the test

And  mayhaps time will  heal the rest

Tis  now to  demonstrate  the  love

That my heart  has been  dreaming of !

 

 

 

VANISH ( 2019 ) 2019/05/20

I used to think that I was strong

And knew therewith where I belonged

How sad to learn fate flew away

Ne’er to return e’er aft that day.

So long ago, that distant past

How foolish to believe t’would last

For dreams will keep us warm at night

But vanish with the morning light !

 

EACH FRONT DOOR ( 2018 ) 2018/11/05

The early dawn creeps o’er the hill

The world about seems calm and still

Tis all this peace at breaking morn

When hopes and dreams must be reborn

The silence brings a short respite

Escaping most of night times fright

As aspirations rise once more

To knock again on each front door !

 

 

 

HEAVEN’S DOOR ( 2018 ) 2018/05/15

The world is dying all around

I sense a shaking of the ground

What is this that’s now happening

God’s prophecies awakening ?

Has time run out and left us here

To ruminate or shed a tear ?

What does this mean to all of us

And will it cause a giant fuss ?

I’m not sure of the sound it brings

Sometimes I think it’s angel’s wings

Perhaps that what I’m wishing for

Some path to open heaven’s door !

 

WHISPER GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/01/15

How often I have wished that I

Could spread my wings and learn to fly

O’er mountain peaks there rising high

Across the meadows whisking by

The waters stretched to touch the sky

While gravity on earth denies.

Along the ridges wide and dry

Where eaglets nest and flight imply

I hear the mighty oceans sigh

And whisper to  this world goodbye !

 

GOD BLESS HIS WORLD  !

 

ON THE SCENE ( 2017 ) 2017/04/30

I think that I have always been

A child of God who prays to win

The chance to walk above the clouds

Where angels gather into crowds.

I’d roam around and seek to find

A pathway that must surely wind

Along the road up to the gate

Where Jesus’ own disciples wait.

If I should act just like a lamb

And none would notice who I am

Perhaps that might be ever keen

I could be there right on the scene !

 

 

 

 

EARLY SPRING ( 2017 ) 2017/02/21

What is it that I see out there

All those rough cracks in earth so bare,

They seem to spread across the ground

New fresh roots waiting to be found.

There is this light green piercing through

Can it be that springtime is due,

What is it we are noticing

Why, first sign of an early spring !

 

 

 

ANGELS SING ( 2017 ) 2017/02/05

Oh tiny babe so full of grace

You’ve a sweet smile upon your face

Because you’ve heard the angels sing

While you are peaceful and sleeping

They whisper loving words to you

To keep you safe the long night through.

Oh how I wish that I could be

A child just out of infancy

And hear those blessed angels sing

Their praise of God who is their King !

 

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD !

I may wander in the twilight until my life is o’er

And wonder if I understand what hope is really for ?

 

A SPECIAL HORSE ( 2016 ) 2016/05/24

Sometimes I wish I had a horse

Not one who races on the course

But wooden, painted, made by hand

By skilled craftsmen whose work is grand.

Carousel horses can be smart

Carved and sculpted right from the heart

With pony tail that flicks and flies

Plus eyelashes o’er bright glass eyes.

Oh what a thrill that it would be

To ride that swift painted pony,

I dream that one day I may find

That special horse my mind combined !

 

 

NO TIME LEFT ( 2015 ) 2015/08/05

There was a town I used to know

I was so small, it’s long ago

It bordered by the river there

The land was flat, sandy and bare

The pines, they grew so tall and strong

The nights were cool, the days were long.

And there beside the water’s edge

I made myself a solemn pledge

That one day when I was all grown

After my foolish deeds were sown

I would return to this sweet place

And once again true life embrace,

Alas for me now bides no chance

There’s no time left for this last dance !

Sometimes a special sound will bring to mind

Forgotten memories we’ve left behind

Or carry on the fragile scented air

Images of those times no longer there.

Reminders rising from some hidden past

Into this world unfeeling and aghast

And there without our understanding why

Refusing still to fade or say goodbye !

 

RETURN ( 2015 ) 2015/07/09

I can imagine all the ocean spray

With salted spume wild splashing in display

A breeze that frolics freely in the air

Oh how I dream and wish I could be there !

I do not think I’d like to be

A great big fish who lived asea

Or even just a liitle one

Who swims around a tiny pond

I might consider alternates

Without the use of fishing nets.

Perhaps glass bowl or maybe tank

In which the chest and diver sank

To sandy bottom rich in shells

Midst pirate tales each sailor tells,

Oh what a treasure there must be

Of stories spun about the sea !

 

 

THE MAGIC SPINS ( 2015 ) 2015/01/25

Along the shore the seashell hides

It’s tossed about by feckless tides

There polished by the caustic sands

To fit into small childish hands,

And with each one they will dream on

Imagining some marathon

Of voyages across the seas

In their shell crafts upon the breeze.

Oh what a tale adventure spells

And how much joy the journey tells

As children dream while magic spins

Their seashell ride into the winds !

 

REFLECTION ( 2015 ) 2015/01/21

The pigeon perched upon my sill

He saw his image in the pane

And for a moment stood quite still

He preened and turned around again.

I wonder if he questioned why

There was a fellow in the glass

And who could be that handsome guy

He didn’t look like second class !

Oh silly bird, what thoughts we keep

I really think you are a dear

You close your eyes, are you asleep

I pray you stay forever near !

 

CHILDHOOD’S DOOR ( 2014 ) 2014/09/26

The bedtime stories I was told

When I was not so very old

Remain with me these many years

And fill my heart with smiles and tears !

A magic bean that climbed a wall

And saved the princess from a fall

Teutonic knights both brash and brave

Who slayed the serpent in a cave !

The knave of hearts who stole the tarts

Or ogres who have kindly hearts

Come to my mind with varied tales

Like Salome with all her veils !

I’d love to visit just once more

Ere I secure childhood’s last door !
