The  pages of my  calendar

All now seem to be  flashing by

They  are racing one  another

I  find I’m helpless  as they  fly.

I never thought that I would see

A time that  would  evaporate

This  world with such  rapidity

Without a  chance to  concentrate.

And so  it is  the days  have passed

Without  one moment  to be  lost

Like  pictures  in a  looking  glass

With  no one there to count the cost !

 

 

BIG BRASS RING ( 2019 ) 2019/09/29

Often our dreams get whisked away

Ere each one has a word to say

Too many wishes we have seen

That  fall into the cracks between,

The saga of a life  close to

Its pending end and what to do

We’ll find a spot to set aside

For this our last and final ride.

Our  dreams and wishes are just that

A chance to wear another hat

But if you choose to praises sing,

Get set to catch the big brass ring !

 

 

 

 

IT’S OVER ( 2019 ) 2019/08/01

There are no bridges left to cross

Nor any mountains left to climb

It’s too late now to pitch and toss

Because we have run out of time.

There is no point in looking back

The curtains drawn, the page is blank

The horse got spooked and left the track

And no one’s  here we need to thank.

We have no reason now to try

I cannot ask the how and when

Believe that love just passed us by

And will not come this way again !

 

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 !

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPEAK SOFTLY ( 2019 ) 2019/03/15

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 !

 

SHARED BY ONE AND ALL ( 2019 ) 2019/02/11

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 ?
