The wind, it whips around the bend

How long before the winter’s end

The snow, the sleet, the icy road

That soon becomes a heavy load

But when the elements do flee

The spring arrives to comfort me.

I’d like to greet another day

With fragrant blossoms on the way

There is a line I can’t ignore

I’ve heard so many times before

If winter comes, it’s true you’ll find

That spring is never far behind !

 

 

 

NOT OUR FAULT ( 2017 ) 2017/12/08

Seems that our lives are changing day by day

While fleeting years keep getting in the way

They appear to have a mission or two

Since we are pressed for time, what shall we do ?

As the days get shorter and time speeds by

Too much to remember, harder to try

All of our efforts will keep us awake

Along with those chances we often take.

There’s a point in time when we’ll have to halt

Please understand this, it won’t be our fault !

 

 

LIFE’S LAST SLEEP ( 2017 ) 2017/12/05

There’s been so many friends along the way

That have gotten lost or have gone astray

While their faces blur and the names escape

Memories get caught in the charged landscape !

As the past rolls by and the time moves on

I will wait here like an old mastodon

In a silence that I would like to keep

Until I close my eyes in life’s last sleep !

 

 

 

YOU WILL BE THERE ( 2017 ) 2017/07/06

Of late the days all seem to fly

As leaves of time keep flashing by

There is so little I can grasp

I need a halt to take a gasp.

Sometimes I’m deaf and sometimes blind

I’m never sure what I shall find

How can my life just melt away

Without my having any say ?

I trust You Lord and know You care

That in my pain You will be there !

 

 

HIT OR MISS ( 2017 ) 2017/03/18

I thought that love had come to stay

One knows true love won’t run away

For you and I were born to be

Two partners through eternity.

I’d always dreamt that this was so

No matter what or where we’d go

Though sometimes I did have a doubt

If this is what all love’s about ?

I tried so hard to stay the course

I didn’t care who was the boss

Since you and I had one intent

That for each other we were meant.

Somehow, somewhere it went astray

While all our hopes did melt away

So much for dreams and plans well made

Like future joys that got mislaid.

I often wondered what went wrong

Was I too weak, were you not strong

After the bliss of that first kiss

Why does love fade to hit or miss ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE JOY OF HOPE ( 2016 ) 2016/12/30

A gentle man was He who came

To save our lives and heal the lame

He brought us sight and gave us grace

To make this world a better place.

He taught us to be kind and fair

And all His blessings learn to share

But best of all, the larger scope

He brought to all the joy of hope !

 

 

 

TO THE FUTURE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/20

There is a task that we all must face

If we’re to rescue the human race

For what are we if not mortal men

Who’ve fallen down and shall rise again ?

There is a tall price that must be paid

For all of the plans that we have made

Twill take men of a greater calling

To ease the harm that’s now befalling.

This nation awaits in its dire need

For plans of our future to succeed !
