THE WINDS OF CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/17

The  sun  is rising  in the  sky

To peer o’er roofs  of homes nearby

And  shine a ray of bright  sunlight

To veil the darkness  of each night.

The winds of chance  are more  discreet

As  they blow  change across the  street

And  every single  breath we  breathe

Is  one  more  memory to  leave !

In  dreams we find  life’s small escape

Some dreams  are meant to  keep us safe

While arms  are meant  to wrap around

And keep  us warm  with love unbound.

How wonderful  this world  would be

Wrapt  up  in God’s  divinity !

Oh, how  I pray that I  can  hide

These  tears  I shed  on the inside

For  all  God’s  children  that I see

Who  dwell in  abject  poverty.

They  never  really had a  chance

For  all their dreams  to be  enhanced

Or  find a  safer path to  take

That  guarantees  a better  break.

Our  Lord  is just  and answers  prayer

He  comprehends we all  must share

It’s  left to  us  to learn  and  teach

The  world we love  to  kindness  reach !

 

 

 

 

 

HIS BEAUTY ( 2019 ) 2019/10/23

Now I have  trod ten thousand miles

Up hills and  dales passed  country stiles

I’ve  climbed the steps  to reach the sky

Both  night and day as clouds rolled by.

I’ve dreamt  the way that  scholars do

Mindful  of all  that can  be true

My  heart and soul are  caught in it

Somehow  it  all just  seems to fit.

Let’s  thank the  Lord  for His great gifts

As  through  our lives  His beauty  sifts !

 

 

 

 

 

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 !

 

 

LEARN TO COPE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/14

As  one  reflects on  former  days

When  life seemed grand with love ablaze

To ponder all the  many  schemes

That filled our lives and were our dreams.

How sad  that most did fade  away,

Forgotten  plans of  yesterday,

Yet  left some here still  dreaming on

That  long  lost  isle of Avalon.

While tales  were told to  bring us hope

And  teach us how to learn to cope

Since  most of  life’s  inequities

Are issues  that we  must  appease !

When first I  held  you in my arms

My sweetest child  so full  of charm

You stole my heart and my soul too

Like no one person  e’er could do

I  never thought  that life would be

Full of  this  joy you’ve  brought to me.

 

In all the  years you  did not fail

Or steal  the wind out of my sail

We’ve weathered  every sort of storm

And kept our lives about  the norm

Tis tragic that you  couldn’t  stay

Wherein at last  my heart will lay !
