I hear the wind, it stirs the trees

And whispers softly to the breeze

Please help me Lord because I’m lost

It matters not what e’er the cost

For I am old, prepared to die

And learning how to say goodbye !

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 !

 

 

 

LIFE IS SHORT RANGE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/01

The end draws near and seems so strange

That life of man lasts but short range

While trees exist for centuries

Attested by the rings one sees.

In man there is this pressing need

For lives to fail or to succeed

As each is counted one by one

But who shall know when counting’s done ?

 

GOD’S CHARITY ( 2018 ) 2018/09/20

What quiet signals do we send

When we’ve moved so close to the end

What simple gestures do we make

When our whole system’s doomed to break ?

The moment’s here and on its own

Wherein the final action’s known

And as the fateful hour appears

A darkness falls among our peers.

Soon angel wings waft some away

To seek a dawn that’s gone astray

Forgive us Lord for all the sin

And help us save most left within

How fortunate that each may be

Depending on God’s charity !

 

“MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD”

PSALM/ 66:1 / 88:1 / 95:1-2 / 98:4-6 / 100:1-5 / 149:3 / et al.

 

 

ECHOES OF ETERNITY ( 2018 ) 2018/05/31

It little matters what we say

Moment to moment, day to day

Our time is come, we can’t forget

As one by one, our hearts regret.

The past we’ve known, that it may be

Sweet echoes of eternity,

As sad farewell must turn away

Our hope that begs a new today !

 

 

NO LAST WORDS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/03

At times I sense a whistle

As it rides upon the wind

There silent as the thistle

While it begs, “please let me in”.

When the moment seems to die

And the quiet does not bend

All the world whispers “goodbye”

And each friendship must now end !

 

JUST MELT AWAY ( 2017 ) 2017/10/29

The day grows short as twilight nears

Increasing all impending fears

The darkness moves in closer now

Casting its shadow cross the brow

Welcome to night time one and all

We’re making ready for the call

That detours each along the way

Before our lives just melt away !
