The night outside is dark and cold

I am so tired and far too old

Oh how I wish that I could sleep

But we have promises to keep

For in this world of let’s pretend

A few may care but more must mend.

 

Take a deep breath for a short while

Lift up your spirit, try a smile

Remember that the Lord is there

Depend on Him, He’s just and fair !

Our lives are cast in many ways

With results for all of our days

No one may change what has begun

For history’s been set and done.

We hope and pray we do not fail

And of our strengths we shall avail

So each will do the best he can

To fill that role down to a man !

When I was young and not so smart

I fell in love and lost my heart

It didn’t take too long for me

To learn that love’s not always free !

No matter what, I can’t explain

Why life holds passion in disdain

We’re told true love will never die

For many that becomes a lie !

Isn’t it amazing we are living on the brink

With each and every moment of how we breathe and think

We’ve been taught to earn our keep in the old fashioned way

And we are growing better with what we do each day

The lesson we have learned is that God is always there

While He watches over us and does our burdens share !

EXCUSE ME but that’s my song they’re playing !  This morning at 5:58 AM, I was astounded by a tasteful display of the Star Spangled Banner, a beautiful panorama of Martin Luther King Jr., a montage of war memorials in D.C. and a moment of silence.  All of this on Fox Cable Network News TV as they commenced morning broadcasting.  I almost jolted out of bed however people my age never jolt anywhere at anytime !  I sat, I rose, I appreciated !  Well now here am I sharing this experience with my world at large, no basket over this light !  It’s like a reveille call.  I do not know if it qualifies, but I’m going to enjoy this show and thank the new incoming administration for reviving our waning patriotism !  Perhaps there is the hope that it is catching.  That would be heartening, thank you !  I already feel 10 pounds lighter, how about you ?     Sincerely,         Claire B.

One thing I’ve learned and must never forget

That here in my path is a challenge yet

There is too much to see and much to do

Before my turn here on this earth is through !

My dearest boys you’ll never know

How I do love you, ever so

I’ve watched you all as each matured

And prayed your future be secured.

I’ve been your cheering squad and fan

Those times you won or also ran

I’m there for you no matter what

I hope you’ll give it all you’ve got.

There’s nought I ask for in return

No medals sought or kudoes earned

Just be a man and do your best

Trust in your God, He’ll do the rest !
