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 !

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

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 !

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

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 !
