There is a tale I wish to share

Bout teenaged feelings, love and care

There was a girl of but fifteen

He was a boy of just eighteen

Each Sunday sharing the church pew

Who can decide what each one knew ?

 

What was it they were thinking of

Because quite soon it looked like love

Though young and silly girls may be

Assured were both she cared for he

He was a lad, handsome and tall

In every way, he seemed her all.

 

On Sunday morn, dad passed the plate

She taught a class, they walked home late

Along the Boulevard they’d chat

They walked and talked of this and that

Soon the young man was her best friend

Perhaps with each their lives they’d spend.

 

Now at this time the world was sick

Young men fought wars in battles thick

That was the year her daddy died

When she felt so alone inside

So many issues war creates

Among those most when faith abates.

 

How could they know before that day

The war would filch their love away

Of all events that I have seen

And all the places I have been

Too precious now those days bygone

That their first love was based upon.

 

So sad the pain that war does bring

As all their dreams took flight and wing

Thus never to return that way

Not then or any other day

Too bad this story has no end

No memory nor any friend !

 

 

 

 

LIFE IS A GAMBLE ( 2019 ) 2019/05/07

I’ve trod the road uncounted miles

And shed more than a million tears

While time evoked a thousand smiles

As life revealed a hundred fears.

I cannot know the why of it

From each angle life has displayed

I only know I hope to fit

Before all of my cards are played !

Oh where am I, what do I see

This place precedes eternity

That’s full of tears and many sighs

Of past romance and sad goodbyes ?

The journey long that each must make

Full of surprise and glad mistake

Who knows what comes to light at last

After each one’s lifespan has passed ?

We hope and dream and wish for more

As we have never dared before

Since life is not a chance recall

The end is shared by one and all !

Oh sandman, sandman what shall we see

In tonight’s sleepy time fantasy

While each evening I prepare for bed

I pray I’ll have pleasant dreams ahead

If  I’m honest I cannot recall

Any of my dreams of old  at all

They seemed to disappear ere came dawn

And by waking time they were all gone !

 

FOOLS LIKE YOU AND ME ( 2019 ) 2019/01/15

Could we but know the history

Of all God’s miracles we see,

That every minute of each day

Are playing out in grand display,

Oh, what a wonder we would learn

For every fraction of life’s turn.

As occurs here before our eyes

This program happens in disguise

The simplest flight of birds on high

Got their direction times gone by

God’s world is perfect as can be

Except for fools like you and me !

 

 

OBSESSED ( 2019 ) 2019/01/12

At times I feel I am obsessed

By hopes and dreams and fears possessed

The hope that we shall find a way

To seek a greater role to play

A dream to be the brighter star

Than what we ever really are

The fear to put our dreams to rest

And hope that all will do their best !

 

 

 

 

HARMONY ( 2019 ) 2019/01/03

Oh how I wish that I could fly

On magic wings into the sky

To visit in that storied land

Where dreams come true and hopes expand.

With love and joy in every nook

And shelves chock full of toy and book

A special place devoid of fear

Where no one ever sheds a tear.

There is no hunger anywhere

And there are beds for all to share

Nor is the sound of anger heard

All seem to have a kindly word.

How marvelous if we could see

Our world bathed in such harmony !
