There is a dream most wish to see

Lasting throughout eternity

A chance to blend both heart and mind

As truth and fantasies unwind

A place of safety and great care

Where hopes and joys are ours to share !

 

OUR REMEMBER WHEN ( 2017 ) 2017/11/25

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

I’m writing to you just because

Christmas is coming round the bend

It’s time to share it with a friend

Though not so simple as it seems

As Christmas nears it fosters dreams.

It is a season to feel young

With Yuletide carols to be sung

It would be nice if we’d return

To days when candles would be burned

When children small were told the tales

Of magic sleighs that had no sails.

 

The reindeer were believed to fly

Across the reaches of the sky

But let’s pretend a moment more

That elves may work in Santa’s store

It’s true I’ve never seen an elf

Except ceramic on a shelf.

Well never mind, this too shall pass

Like Alice through her looking glass

Until next year, same time, same place

Anticipating your embrace

I pray I’m not too old by then

Forgetting our remember when !

 

ISN’T IT WONDERFUL TO SEE WITH THE HEART OF A CHILD ?

There is a place where I can see

This nation’s flag wave over me

The flag it flies with colors bright

It is an oh so wondrous sight

And promises this great surprise

To open every stranger’s eyes

Instilling confidence and pride

With love that wells up deep inside

Old Glory may she ever wave

And all our dreams, help us to save !

Oh daddy dear what can you say

To get me through this scary day

And help me face my wildest fears

With the vast wisdom of your years ?

What shall I do now I am grown

To find my way back to my home

With you not there to shelter me

From  stress that life shares frequently ?

Oh daddy dear I miss you so

Too great a loss, why did you go

I pray we’ll meet again one day

In God’s sweet land of far away !

 

 

OUTSTRETCHED HAND ( 2017 ) 2017/10/01

Love doesn’t die much like life,  it just fades away

And withers in the darkness with each passing day

Many dreams lie wasted remembering the past

There within shadows that were never meant to last

And the world continues as if there were no end

Many will survive without lover or dear friend

God is always listening, try to understand

He is there waiting with a steady outstretched hand !

Oh little man,where have you gone

What costume is it you have on

Which role is this you’re playing now

While on life’s stage to take a bow ?

I’ve seen the many hats you wear

I’d like to help you get to there

Unless I know where that place is

I’m helpless cause  I am no whiz !

Oh little man, when you are grown

And roots of dreams have been well sown

Please tell me what I need to do

To help you make your wish come true !

 

 

 

AMERICAN PRIDE ( 2017 ) 2017/09/08

It seems to me this world is strange

From ocean’s edge to mountain range

With valleys lower than the sea

And plains as far as eyes can see.

A land of forests, hills with ruins

Lakes, rivers, streams and desert dunes

A coastline full of coves and bays

With swamps and marshes in a maze,

Mass spectacles of God’s delights

This place of dreams and hope incites

Such passion in her people here

They shall not dare to live in  fear !
