I  hear the  whistle on  the  track

It  seems to shout,  come back,  come back

But  I have  been  this way  before

Not  once,  but  twice or maybe more

And  cannot bear  the lonesome sound

Of  emptiness  which  I  have found.

My  bags are packed  all set to go

I’m  ready for  another  show

I  do not have a  backup  plan

And  may  become  an ” also  ran ”

God  with Your  help,  I’ll  take a chance

Tis  time to  try  to learn  to dance !

Oh blessed Lord, help me to find

The path that does to heaven wind

I want to aid and clear the way

For all of those who wish to stay

I can’t believe the time grows near

The day of judgement soon is here !

Through all these years and all the wars

That caused such grief and gave us pause

Too many  centuries have  passed

Each one’s been sadder than the last

Help us to  find a safer  shore

Perhaps to  even up the score

Oh Lord above,  look down  on we

Your  children  seeking  sanctity !

The lonesome whistle of the train

Keeps singing to my tired brain

The trip is long and nears its end

I’m ever weary, oh my friend

And what if we should never die

How could we then embrace goodbye ?

The winter chill returns once more

As reckless waves crash on the shore

The eagle nests in heaven’s skies

As snowflakes fall before one’s eyes.

The winter has too soon begun

Make way anon for frozen fun

Unpack your muffler, hood and ski

Tis now the hour for snowtime glee.

Enjoy as days all fade so fast

Note, even winter scurries passed

As we prepare for spring’s encore

To be life’s cycle evermore !

 

 

ANTICIPATION ( 2018 ) 2018/07/17

There is this dream in which we’re caught

Wherein our hopes and fears are fraught

A place where passions that we knew

One day at last will follow through

To fold us in God’s circle of

His unabashed enduring love !

This heart of mine it hungers so

Too much to say before we go

The words don’t come so easy now

Caught in the throat, sometimes somehow.

A simple act of nature’s need

Bids all who dare, take care indeed

The changes come and fall away

Too soon we’ll meet that fInal day !
