My gratitude, dear God above

I am surrounded by true love

My fate’s been sealed and is secure

There’s no escape, of this I’m sure

The time grows late, what else is left

Too soon it is, the world’s bereft !

 

HIS POWER ( 2020 ) 2020/01/27

The  world  we’ve  known waits outside  the door

Where  it may be what  we’re  praying for

A  kindly  word or  a tender  heart

To  grace  the day with a healthy start.

Outside  the door  where true life exists

Common  sense should  forever persist

For  each needs  the strength to  carry on,

Passion  to follow when hope is gone,

Then  reach for the sky  to touch a cloud

Praising  the Lord and  his power aloud !

 

 

 

 

THE LAST HURRAH ( 2019 ) 2019/12/31

Too  many dreams have  come and gone

While  life itself  still  lingers on

The  days pass by,  the candle burns

As  years fly past,  the earth still turns.

What  was today now  bids goodbye

And  all that’s left,  a  quiet  sigh !

 

 

THAT FINAL DOOR ( 2019 ) 2019/12/18

As I peer out my window pane

I see the snow has come again

Here in the early  hours of dawn

The whiteness seems to  brighten morn.

Oh  what a  luxury it is

To be assured  that we are His

And  will be so  forever more

When life shall close  that final door !

Whomever  thought I would live to be

Alive  in  another  century

How  fast all the years have whizzed on by

With a  tender shrug and  a sad goodbye.

While  I’d  like to believe  it’s okay

Trying  to pursue  another  day

In  a world  I neither fit nor last

Since the  twentieth  century’s  passed !

AMEN.

 

PATIENCE ( 2019 ) 2019/12/08

Throughout  my youth  and  ageing years

I’ve  known the  company  of tears

My  rainbow has  appeared at last

The  final role  my life has  cast.

I’m  still on hold,  accepting too

As  life has taught  me what to do

I  wish I  had  the  patience of

Each  saint  and  angel up above !

 

BRIDGES ( 2019 ) 2019/11/20

There is this tugging on my heart

How did it  ever get its start

A  numbness rising  from the floor

Into  my feet and  out the door.

What’s  happening,  I do not know

I  cannot make it  stop or go

Please lead me Lord,  teach me the way

Help  me survive  each lonely  day.

Where are the tears  I need to cry

With  each and every  sad goodbye

Where  are the kisses  I have earned

Ere all  my bridges  have been burned ?

 

 

 

SEEKING DREAMS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/28

How grand  is it to  seek one’s dream

Far better than  it mayhaps  seem

For dreams are  wishes not yet true

Without a boost  from  me or you.

Tis  quite okay  to ponder why

Some dreams may  fade and  often die

Perhaps  that strength required to win

Needs faith in God  to help begin !

 

 

 

 

MY MOM ( 2019 ) 2019/04/24

Another day,  I miss you so

You left me here long time ago

You closed your eyes and went to sleep

And that’s the  memory I keep.

I held your hand, was but we two

Too long a  time I’m split from you

I need your love and always will

Remember this,  I love you still !

 

HIS FINAL CALL ( 2019 ) 2019/03/30

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:52 am

Whate’er we hear or see each day,

Integrity gets in the way

Truth comes at last, who is the Beast

That rules the world and all its Least ?

We certainly are gone quite mad

In truth, most citizens are sad

Hyenas rule at every gate

The Just are cowed and much irate.

Salvation seems quite overdue

How shall we know when dreams come true

Perhaps to pray as we’ve been told

Remembering God’s promise old

Each are His children one and all

Awaiting on His final call !

 

 

 

EXPECTATIONS (2019) 2019/02/23

The wind is in the willows

The birds are on the wing

While lazing here on pillows

My heart begins to sing.

The year is growing older

Before long twill be spring

My will is growing bolder

In spite of winter’s sting.

My faith begins increasing

In every way it may

With all my fears releasing

The burden of each day !

 

 

TO THE LAMB (2019) 2019/02/19

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:33 am

Oh little lamb you are to me

A symbol of God’s charity

Your wooly hair and all your curls

Reminds me of our knits and purls

In early spring you sacrificed

So we’d have garments warm and nice.

A pair of soft and wooly socks

Or sweater set that really rocks

Paired with wool tights tucked in the boots

While shearling-gloved hands pulled up roots

You’ve mown the lawn there as you eat

And trampled turds with your hoofed feet

You’ve closer gathered when it’s cold

And seem to live to be quite old !

 

IT’S CALLED SADNESS ( 2019 ) 2019/01/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:26 am

There’s an instant lonesomeness in the whispering of the winds

That fills the heart with loneliness before each day begins

There is a moment of darkness that dims all of our sights

A prelude to the blindness that precedes life’s true delights !

 

IF IT FITS ( 2019 ) 2019/01/06

The world outside is crass and cold

The air inside, both brash and bold

And takes time getting used to it

If we expect our lives to fit

Let’s make the best of what we’ve got

No matter if it fits or not !

 

THE RISING OF THE SUN ( 2018 ) 2018/12/18

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:48 am

Sometimes the words get in the way

Of all those thoughts we have to say

Like all the angels in the skies

Whose wings do bid us sweet goodbyes

Or shutters closed ‘gainst bitter cold

Burst open for each sunshine’s role

Like evening prayer before we sleep

Filled with our promises to keep

Our lives in order,  should He come

Before the rising of the sun !

 

 

IT’S THE SEASONS CHEER ( 2018 ) 2018/11/20

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:45 am

There’s so much snow upon the ground

Midst signs of winter all around

The wind is cold and icy breathed

It mixes with the air that’s left !

The signs of warmth rise here and there

While smoking chimneys pierce the air,

Fireplaces through the winter’s night

Will shed their pleasant warming light.

The shadows dancing on the wall

Invite us now to taste it all

With friends and neighbors far and near

So all may reap the seasons cheer !

 

 

WE’RE TOO OLD ( 2018 ) 2018/11/16

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:27 am
Tags: , , , , ,

When most of the darkness leaves us

And we are at last all alone

There’s no one left to deceive us

We are basic’ly  on our own.

In the midst of our lifetime’s storm

When good sense and health have vanished

Imagine that this is the norm

And what’s left here has been banished.

When the new replaces the old

And life seems to have gone astray

Remember we once were that bold

But short of a permanent stay !

 

INEXPERIENCED ( 2018 ) 2018/09/08

T’was once upon a time ago

When we were full of life aglow

Before emerged this need to know

With tiny impetus for show

Our lives were truly less confused

Filled with days both calm and diffused

May all that anger be excused

To find ourselves in turn  amused !

 

 

HELP FOR STORMY DAYS ( 2018 ) 2018/08/12

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:09 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Dark storm clouds gather up on high

While shafts of light shoot cross the sky

The rain it tumults to the ground

And fills each crevice to be found.

The thunder and the lightning roar

As darkness creeps inside the door

The streets are full of glistening streams

That flow forever, so it seems.

All lives encounter stormy days

Both cold or sad in countless ways

With this exception each may take

God helps us up before we break !

 

HELP US GROW ( 2018 ) 2018/07/25

I spy the remnants of my life

Surviving all its stress and strife

I sense the depth of my defense

While reaching out for recompense.

Where are the goals I thought I had

That separate good from the bad,

When will I learn to use my time

In aiding those who dare to climb ?

I find myself caught in the net

That seems to have no exit yet

Please show me, Lord the way to go

To help our lives and values grow !

 

 

DARLING CHILD ( 2018 ) 2018/07/12

Lord, You’re in charge of wrong and right

The sun by day, the stars by night

The winds that blow, the rains that fall

The light and dark, life overall.

You are the wisdom and the brains

The loss that memory retains

With dreams that we’re all guilty of

When all are young or bold in love.

The changes come, the changes go

Time flashes by the more you know

As God and all the angels smile

Because each is His darling child !

 

 

 

 

CRIMSON PLUMES ( 2018 ) 2018/05/26

In the distant fields, row on row

Where all the stalwart poppies grow

God’s crimson plumes wave in the breeze

Their masses reaching to the trees

Across the hills and o’er the plains

With multitudes of mounting aims,

Who’s heard the call both loud and clear

And knows the day of judgement’s near ?

 

THE FUTURE’S DEAD ( 2018 ) 2018/02/09

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:06 am

There was a time we all felt good

The way united people should

We worked together like a pack

I prayed we’d get our mojo back

But all this stress and anger too

Is something that we must pass through

I see no clear path straight ahead

Just seems as though the future’s dead !

 

INCONVENIENCE ( 2017 ) 2017/12/28

An icy sleet covers the ground

There’s no safe footing to be found

The winter’s menu slowly grows

Extending to some heavy snows

Alas this season seems to be

Arriving inconveniently !

 

 

IF WINTER COMES ( 2017 ) 2017/12/11

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

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:26 am
Tags: , , , , ,

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 !
