Oh how I wish that I could fly

On magic wings into the sky

To visit in that storied land

Where dreams come true and hopes expand.

With love and joy in every nook

And shelves chock full of toy and book

A special place devoid of fear

Where no one ever sheds a tear.

There is no hunger anywhere

And there are beds for all to share

Nor is the sound of anger heard

All seem to have a kindly word.

How marvelous if we could see

Our world bathed in such harmony !

Oh how I wish that I might be

The brightest star upon the tree

And with the words of every hymn

Sing praises loud adoring Him

In sight of God and man today

To spread my wings and fly away !

The time is now, the end appears

We can’t escape, the climax nears

Tis karma for the empty years

We are prepared to face our fears !

Like the ashes from the ember

We have promised to remember

Will it last this way forever

I can hear the answer, never !

Oh Lamb of God, I come to Thee

The bastion of our liberty

I beg of You to set me free.

Untie my wings and let me fly

Into the reaches of the sky

Ere pride and love have passed me by !

I’ve walked among  the shadows that cloud our troubled days

And wondered how the angels escaped our human ways !

 

INFAMY ( 2017 ) 2017/05/02

Sometimes the heart is more inclined

To seek respite and courage find

Among the days of lesser times

When this world bode in older climes.

For where we are, not where we’ve been,

Is caught in chance and grief and sin

There’s scant honor left, we may find

In all the hours to still unwind.

Oh blessed Lord,  take care that we

Escape this time of infamy !

 

 

THE PAST 2016 2016/10/22

Oh for my life that used to be

When I was young and truly free

With all those passions I did feel

The foolishness and thought unreal.

I spent my life much like a child

Manner sweet and a temper mild

It took a lot for me to pout

I never felt I was left out

How I do wish that I could find

A place to leave the past behind !
