Lord  help  us  to  remember  this

That  life  is  not  a  hit  or  miss

Its  purpose  has  been  clearly  known

And  pathways  have  been  rightly  shown.

The  way  ahead  may  seem  obscure

We  need  to know  that  road’s  secure

Before  we  take  our  dreams  to  task

And  of  our  God  all  favors  ask  !

Out of the quiet of the hour

Tis now the time for peace to flower

When angels rest the air turns still

So hope may shine upon yon hill

Thus power rests in present thought

Of all the lessons life has taught.

We need replace man’s lack of love

With kindness shared from God above,

Take heart and dream what life’s about

And learn to live with faith devout !

Now I have dreamt a dream or two

And spent a lifetime loving you

I’ve prayed and hoped we two would be

Together through eternity !

 

FORGOTTEN DREAMS ( 2020 ) 2020/03/06

I  see the clouds  caught in the trees

They  all seem frozen  in the breeze

Oh  how I wish  that I could try

To  touch  their fluff while  passing by

But  heaven is  so far  away

Is  it a space  where angels play ?

I  guess that  I will never know

If  it’s a place  I’d like  to go

There  is so much  right here to see

It  might  just  take eternity

Appears  I have more time,  it seems

To  gather up  forgotten dreams !

 

A DREAM TO FIND ( 2020 ) 2020/02/05

Nightshades  have fallen,  all is dark

Tree  limbs above are  bare and stark

There  is this silence  that abounds

As  nature  softens all  her sounds.

Yet  I  can  see  stars  in the  sky

That  clouds keep  hiding from the eye

Oh  how I wish  that I could be

Some  wise old owl  perched in a tree

Who  comprehends that  hopes unwind

To  help us each  our dream  to find !

 

 

END TIME GOALS ( 2020 ) 2020/01/23

We do not know through all these years

A time so full of angst and fears

Is this the war from days of old

That ages have this story told

The one the prophets have declared

For which we now must be prepared.

Whomever dreamt that we would be

Faced by this great calamity,

May God have mercy on our souls

Help us secure our end time goals !

 

 

AFTER EACH FALL ( 2020 ) 2020/01/18

When  I  was sweet sixteen,  long time ago

The  world was all  mine to worship and grow

I  promised me that I’d try hard to  be

The  bestest girl  that anyone could see.

I’d  make  my mark with the greatest of ease

Doing  whatever it would take  to please

Now  life has come and gone with  fewer dreams

Leaving  me falling  apart at the seams.

I’m  sure that the Lord  will always be there

To  buck up my shoulders,  teach me to care

While  I’ve  discovered after  beaucoup  years

To  make peace with  myself,  dry up my tears

Cause  it’s not the results  that count at all

It’s  whether you rise up  after each fall !

Throughout  my youth  and  ageing years

I’ve  known the  company  of tears

My  rainbow has  appeared at last

The  final role  my life has  cast.

I’m  still on hold,  accepting too

As  life has taught  me what to do

I  wish I  had  the  patience of

Each  saint  and  angel up above !

 

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 !

 

 

 

 

 

FINAL REST ( 2019 ) 2019/09/08

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 !

Shimmering  stars are seen at night

Displaying  all their  brilliant light

Creating highways  in the sky

On  which explorers do  rely.

I wish  that we on earth  could know

The  magic that God’s sky does show

Of  life as is and  how we learn

To  choose our  path at every turn !

 

 

SEEKING DREAMS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/28

How grand  is it to  seek one’s dream

Far better than  it mayhaps  seem

For dreams are  wishes not yet true

Without a boost  from  me or you.

Tis  quite okay  to ponder why

Some dreams may  fade and  often die

Perhaps  that strength required to win

Needs faith in God  to help begin !

Have you e’er pondered  over  angel  wings

How they  could get caught in our  worldly things

Such as  doors, windows and archways or screens

Or limbs of trees or in branches of greens ?

How do they manage to dress up each day

Looking so sweet in angelic display

I wonder if they wear stockings or boots

Do they prefer eating  ice cream  or fruits ?

Isn’t it strange that we know nothing more

Of where they’ve been until now and before

I’d sure like to find  some  lessons to use

To help me decide which pathway to choose !

Now you and I have been around

Among these feelings we have found

Though they are not of wide import

Somehow we’ve managed to have caught

This glow that captures happiness

And triumphs love o’er great success

For life is more than what it seems

It’s smiles and hopes and all our dreams !

The feelings that this season brings

Much like the songs God’s nature sings

Filling the air with scents and smells

That to us  all her  story  tells

While life, enhanced along the way,

Keeps growing better day by day

And helping us rejoice in peace

Before we meet our souls’ release !

The sun is fading in the west

At twilight time it’s oft the best

The colors all a vibrant scene

With sprays of magic in between.

How wonderful each evening seems

A part of all our finest dreams

So off to sleep as even falls

Ere mystery of nightfall calls !

 

 

 

 

ONE LAST LOOK ( 2019 ) 2019/06/28

I find myself out on a limb

Is there some one to let me

How shall I save myself on earth

What is the value of my worth ?

I know that God is always there

And that He hears my every prayer

I’ve tried so hard to do what’s right

Each morning, noon and through the night.

My clock is  running  out it  seems

Like all my hopes and all my dreams

The time is now to close the book

I wish to take this one last look !

I often think  it’s sad that we

Must live with each  infirmity

Yet it may make us stronger now

If we could learn the  why and how

This life  is not a sack of dreams

Filled with a mass of wasted schemes.

It’s real,  it’s here, we  need take care

This is a  concept  all  may share

God offers us a  second chance

To live,  to hope,  to circumstance

It’s  up  to us  to  carry  on

The Lord’s our strength here and beyond !

Memories  last  forever, we  can’t  forget

Years  may  disappear  so  much to our regret

There gleaming through a twilight that will not set

If  we  chance remember with  no  ending yet !

 

AMEN.

Sometimes love happens fast

And takes our breath aghast

Tis odd we should depend

On love to help one mend

For it is each who’ll chance

To gamble on romance.

How shall we make it clear

We hold this value dear

And live on borrowed time

With life wrapt up in rhyme !

My dearest friend,  I miss you so

The depth far deeper than you know

The “used to be”, that is, once was

My heart was thrilled,  my days abuzz.

I still recall with no regret

Too many hours we shan’t forget

The little which we understand

Of all that lies in our command

Our tender days that ought to be,

Got lost within diversity !

Our world is made of fantasy

Of wishes, dreams and ecstasy

Of worry, hope and dignity

With many other traits you’ll see

Despite how we may try agree

We are awash and blind asea !

 

FIRST LOVE IS FOREVER ( 2019 ) 2019/05/17

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 !
