Sometimes  this world gets in the way

We  come and go,  yet cannot stay

Or  find a path  to keep us free

From  all of life’s  complexity.

I’ve  often  wondered  just how long

We’re  all expected  to be strong

It  takes some bit of  grit to see

The  pathway  to  eternity !

 

 

THE DARK OF NIGHT ( 2019 ) 2019/11/12

The  sun peeks through the window blinds

As  morning light  exposure finds

Let’s welcome  in  this brand new day

Before  it too does fly  away.

The leaves have gone,  the trees are bare

The  smell of  snow now fills the air

As  winter creeps  upon its knees

The  earth  beneath  begins to freeze.

Too soon  the frost  will move on in

While  dark of night  shall  soon begin !

 

 

I’LL TAKE A CHANCE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/12

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 ?

 

SEASON’S CHANGE ( 2019 ) 2019/01/19

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 !

The quiet of the lonely night

Now  fills my waiting ears

The silence funnels all the fright

Into my wildest fears !

Once long ago I knew a life

Which proffered me all that it could

As daughter, mother and a wife

In happiness with aspects good

Seems it appears after all that

I find myself left derelict

And wearing an indifferent hat

My days no longer kept that strict !

 

 

 

OUR NUMBERS GROW ( 2017 ) 2017/11/16

This gentle thought does make its way

Into the musings of each day

What is it that our God has seen

As He looks down upon earth’s scene

Can it be that our numbers grow

Who wait on Him to start His show ?

 

 

AULD LANG SYNE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/11

True friendship is the kindest thing

It moves the heart to smile and sing

And raises all our hopes and joys

Like birthday gifts and children’s toys.

It’s a blessing that loving shares

To soothe the beast midst worldly cares

For without friends one’s cast aside

Into life’s emptiness outside

To languish wasted on the vine

Without the warmth of auld lang syne !

 

FREEDOM’S RING ( 2016 ) 2016/11/08

The air is charged with thoughts intense

What shall we do in our defense

The days are numbered who can say

Who will the hero be today ?

Will they be travelling on a horse

Or sailing on a separate course

And will this choice affect our lives

Of course it must one does surmise ?

Let’s pray that God is on our side

Along life’s road He’ll be our guide

We need to take our country back

Stay safe from harm and all attack !

 

 

 

 

FRUSTRATION ( 2015 ) 2015/03/12

Oh what I’d give to stand up straight

To learn to circumnavigate

To use my limbs as others do

To climb a stair or dance a few.

Oh what a joy that it would be

To take a walk around to see

This neighborhood where I reside

Instead of staying safe inside.

I’m tired of disability

And eager dream of being free !

I look into the blue above

For signs of God’s eternal love

And lo, before me clouds arise

To fill the void in vacant skies,

They dance and float with such panache

Creating panoramic flash !

I’m dazzled by their wild display

Reminding me this is His way,

And I shall ever grateful be

He made this world including me

My heart sings out, it is full of cheer

I can’t believe old winter is here

How the chilly night invades the room

As the darkened sky reflects the gloom.

I remember all those days of gold

That prefaced our lives before the cold,

While the winds that steal our breath away

Seem so intent to shorten our day.

How much longer will we need to wait

Till the sun enters the garden gate ?

I’m fond of fall, the summer is fine

Spring is the reason our world will shine !
