GOD IS ALL ( 2020 ) 2020/07/10

Time keeps flying, like birds in flocks

Across the mountains, fields and rocks

O’er meadows wide midst giant hills

With rapid rivers, rushing rills

How wonderful to hear the sound

Of nature spreading all around

Be sure, our God is always there

To save each from this dark despair

Oh blesséd Lord, You do not fail

And with Your help, all will avail!

 

 

NOTHING GOOD ( 2020 ) 2020/06/28

Hypocrisy  is  all  around

It  emanates  up  from  the  ground

And  fills the  world  with  poison  air

To  propagate  our  great  despair

How  little  do  we  know  or  mind

Of  all  the  history  we  find  ?

The  whole  truth  is  what  all  should  crave

If  we  are  to  be  strong  and  brave

Can  we  survive  this  huge  attack

When  will  we  have  our  honor  back  ?

The  future’s  grim,   misunderstood

Without  God’s  love  there’s  nothing  good  !

 

 

 

SAVE US NOW ( 2020 ) 2020/06/27

Our  tears  are  flowing  down  like  rain

With  cheeks pressed  hard  on  window  pane

Each  throat  is  tight  and  cannot  breathe

And  struggles  hard to  find  relief.

The  madness  now  does  seize  us  all

From  sources  which  demand  our  fall

Our  hearts  are  dying  one  by  one

When  will  this  agony  be  done  ?

This  land  of  beauty  and  great  wealth

Our  citadel   of  strength  and  health

Is  under  seige  by  evil  force

Oh  Captain,  do  reverse  this  course  !

Now  I  have  had  a  thousand  dreams

And  planned  at  least  a  hundred  schemes

I’ve  wished  perhaps  five  hundred  more

Before  I  close  life’s  final  door.

I’ve  tried  so  hard  to  not  pretend

That  I  know  how  my  days  will  end

Ere  I  have  had  the time  to  leave

Instructions  as  to  how  you  grieve.

Remember  me  please,   If  you  do

But  only  of  my  love  for  you

I  can  not  ask for some  thing  more

Except,  my  dear,  just  one  encore   !

 

HAPPY CHANCE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/24

The  wind  blows  wild  and  plays  a  song

I’d  like  to  learn  to  hum  along,

It  isn’t  hard  to  sing  a  tune

With  words  that  rhyme  like  June  and  moon.

Such  mirth  it  brings  to  wonder  this

And  to  imagine  youth’s  first  kiss,

I  wish  that  I  might be  again

That  girl  I  was  away  back  when

The  thrill  of  love  and  sweet  romance

Could  offer  me   a   happy  chance  !

 

 

 

FAVORS ASK ( 2020 ) 2020/06/23

Lord  help  us  to  remember  this

That  life  is  not  a  hit  or  miss

Its  purpose  has  been  clearly  known

And  pathways  have  been  rightly  shown.

The  way  ahead  may  seem  obscure

We  need  to know  that  road’s  secure

Before  we  take  our  dreams  to  task

And  of  our  God  all  favors  ask  !

 

SHARING ( 2020 ) 2020/06/21

My  life  is  o’er,  how  fast  it  went

I  wonder  where  my  time’s  been  spent

It’s  passing  by  too  swiftly  now

The  cradle  has  long  left  the  bough.

I  shall  not  pass this  way  again,

Perhaps  I  may  remember  when

The  days  have  gone  or  passed on  by

Each  full of  smiles or  tears  we’ve  cried.

Oh  how I  wish  that  I  would  be

Some  creature  flitting,  tree  to  tree

Who’s  spent  its  life  up  in  the  air

Where  only  God and  birds may  share !

 

 

 

 

SURPRISE ( 2020 )

See  sunlight  streaming  through  the  trees

While  leaves  are  swaying  in  the  breeze

The  morning  air’s  so  fresh  and  cool

The  rising  sun  shines  like  a  jewel

Oh  what  a  great  day  this  will  be

A  gift  from  our  own  Diety,

God  bless  us  all  as  we  arise

Let’s  pray  this  day’s  full  of  surprise  !

 

RELEASE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/19

The  pain  is  real  and  so  intense

What  shall  I  do  for  my defense

Oh  blessed  Lord  reach  out  to me

And  grant  me  some  immunity

My  faith  is strong  what  shall I  do

To  prove  that  I  believe  in  You  ?

I’ve  made  the  best  of  what  I’ve  got

And  know  this  is  my  final  shot

Please  help  me  Lord  to  find  some  peace

As  from  this  place  I  beg  release  !

AMEN.

 

REBUKE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/16

There  is  a  sound  that  I  can  hear

It  seems  to  whisper  in  the  ear

Is  it  the  wind  that  steals  about

With  soft  whispers  and  ne’er  a  shout  ?

What  must  I  do  to  make  it  clear

That  God’s  rebuke  is  all I  fear  ?

 

REGRET ( 2020 ) 2020/06/15

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 11:37 am

A  simple  thought  just  for  today

That  we  mean  everything  we  say

The  truth  is  what  this  world’s  about

Because  of  this  we  have  no  doubt.

The  lies  are  but  another  ploy

Of  all  the  tricks  humans  employ

To  twist  and  turn  each  form  of  strife

Into  an  enemy  for  life.

How  sad  that  we  perchance  forget

Too  many  days spent  in regret  !

 

 

 

 

WHEN ? ( 2020 ) 2020/06/13

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 11:55 am
Tags: , , , , ,

We’re  standing  in  a line  where  we must  wait

Tis  not  a  journey  we  anticipate

The  day  is  not  too sunny  nor  too  cool

Nor  meant  to  be a  space  for  fake  or  fool

So   here  we  stand  before  God’s  final  gate

And  wonder  how  much  longer  is  the  date

Before  we enter  into  paradise

Where  we’ll  no  longer  suffer  Satan’s  lies !

 

THE SEARCH ( 2020 ) 2020/06/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 8:43 am
Tags: , , , , ,

What  is  it  that  I’m  searching  for

Will  I  unearth  the  hidden  door

That  leads  to  God’s  exotic  place

Wherein  one  finds  His  secret  space  ?

Thus  live  my  life  without  the  pain

Of  losing  those  I  love  again

Seek  help  from  God  high  on  His  perch

Beg  Him  to  aid  me  in  my  search  !

 

POWER ( 2020 ) 2020/06/10

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 10:01 am
Tags: , , , , ,

We  view  our  lives  through  tainted  eyes

Because  this  world  is  bathed  in  lies

Real  faith  exists  in  truth  alone

Since  hearts  of  men  oftimes  are stone.

Though  many  strong  are  honor  bred

While  others  bask  in  shade  instead,

How  sad that  we  discover  late

Powers  we  hold  o’er  our own  fate  !

 

 

BEAUTY OBSCENE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/04

Tis  the  time  of  year  when  sunshine  smiles

And  the  sky is  so clear  for  miles  and  miles,

When  the  birds  in  the branches  of  the  trees

Circulate  their  message  into  the  breeze

While  the gentle  wind  does  rustle  the  leaves

Now  playing  in  the  shadow  of  the eaves.

The  trees seem  to  yawn  and  stretch  in  the sun

As  spreading  shrubs  have  their  flowers  begun

So  it  is  that  our  world  of  growing  green

Paints  pictures  to  all  of  beauty  obscene  !

 

NOT TOO LATE ( 2020 ) 2020/06/03


When I was small I chose to be

A child of God, inspired and free

I’ve loved the Lord my whole life through

My faith in God’s been tried and true.

I’ve prayed so hard that I might find

A key that would one day unwind

The path to peace and heaven’s gate

Dear Lord, I hope it’s not too late !

 

 

 

 

GREAT DANGER ( 2020 ) 2020/06/01

What is this madness that we face

That’s taking up our total space

There is great danger spreading here

A danger that we all must fear.

Beware, because the Devil’s come

He is destroying everyone

This is a warning that’s come late

When ever will this hate abate ?

Oh Blessed Lord, we beg You please

Observe Your children on their knees

Reach out to all who are in pain

To save them from this world insane !

 

HIS SHOW ( 2020 ) 2020/05/30

The tide flows in all swift and fleet

And almost knocks me off my feet

The water moves at a quick pace

And comes and goes with ne’er a trace

It makes no sound as it moves on

But silent, seeks its echelon.

For all we know, what do we see

One’s vision of sobriety

Hold on, hold on, do not let go

God’s beside us, this is His show !

 

HEREDITY ? ( 2020 ) 2020/05/26

There is a world that waits for me

Somewhere across God’s great blue sea

A place where anger can’t exist

And only kindness does persist.

But I’m not sure if I can wait

To make the journey to that Gate

Because my world is falling down

And crushing kindness to the ground.

What shall I do, how can this be

Is this the new heredity ?

Oh Gracious Lord, remember me

For only You can set me free !

 

THE SONG OF BIRDS( 2020 ) 2020/05/25

There is this joy that mornings bring

The song of birds upon the wing

Their voices calling to their kin

An early morning checking in.

They chirp and croon familiar tunes

From breaking dawn through afternoons

Making each creature here belong

Though some are frail yet others strong

How wonderful that God’s so wise

He’s made His Own Bird Paradise !

 

WE NEED YOU ( 2020 ) 2020/05/23

What would You do to save us from

The storm we know is soon to come

How will You guard us, help us rise

Above this hell that’s in disguise ?

We need You now, teach us to care

That we may all Your wisdom share !

 

THE PATH ( 2020 ) 2020/05/16

What is it we are waiting for

The peace of God to use our door,

To enter in and take the space

Reserved for His Eternal Grace ?

How can it be this world’s destroyed

And of all fairness, now devoid

While angels weep and rain their tears

Upon this place, too full of fears ?

Where do we turn to reach You, Lord

That we may be of one accord

Oh, dearest God please help us find

The path that to Your Heart unwinds !

 

FAITH DEVOUT ( 2020 ) 2020/05/13

Out of the quiet of the hour

Tis now the time for peace to flower

When angels rest the air turns still

So hope may shine upon yon hill

Thus power rests in present thought

Of all the lessons life has taught.

We need replace man’s lack of love

With kindness shared from God above,

Take heart and dream what life’s about

And learn to live with faith devout !

 

A TRUE ROMANCE ( 2020 ) 2020/04/02

Now I have dreamt a dream or two

And spent a lifetime loving you

I’ve prayed and hoped we two would be

Together through eternity !

 

TIS APRIL ( 2020 ) 2020/04/01

It seems each road shall have an end

Without a lover or a friend

The seasons change or pass away

And move on by, day after day

The stars above fade aft each night

And disappear in morning’s light.

The sun will break its fast at dawn

While we are left to carry on

How lonely that one lifetime seems

With out its history and dreams

As all pass into the oblique

Deserting every quest we seek !

 

FAIR PLAY ( 2020 ) 2020/03/30

Tis sad the problem we now face

As members of the human race

The pestilence has taken hold

Of world wide fear, exceeding bold

To cover all the good and kind

That we’d the power here to find.

So simple when we understand

That life is ruled by God’s command

Accept His judgement every day

His sense of justice and fair play !

Celestial  bodies in the  sky

All flash and wink in passing by

I wonder  if  they  query why

No  other objects fly so  high !

 

 

I AM SO WEAK ( 2020 ) 2020/03/28

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:35 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is a numbness that I feel

An emptiness that’s so unreal

Sensation lost and caring less

All part of my renewed distress

I am so weak, my strength is gone

Great effort just to carry on.

Oh how I wish to stronger be

And stand up to adversity

Perhaps one day I’ll find success

With God to teach me all the rest !
