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 ?

I thought my heart was in a bind

Because true love I could not find

No matter what I came up blank

Nothing was left on which to bank.

I’ve often wondered what went wrong

Why did it take so very long

My life’s been filled with true regret

There’s been no happy ending yet.

And chances are there never will

My stars are crossed, romance is nil

At last I am too old to care

Thank God my Lord awaits me there !

I hear the wind, it stirs the trees

And whispers softly to the breeze

Please help me Lord because I’m lost

It matters not what e’er the cost

For I am old, prepared to die

And learning how to say goodbye !

When I was but a little child 

And life was newer, sweeter, mild 

My mother taught me many things 

About the joy that kindness brings 

And why respect’s a two way street 

When often strangers chance to meet 

The earth is precious needing care 

With trust the virtue all must share !

There is a God, I know He lives

With all the blessings that He gives

He is my Saviour and my Friend

Who’ll stick with me until the end.

I have no fear, He’ll be with me

Until I reach Eternity

I often wonder how He knows

About my fingers and my toes,

My every thought and every deed

My hopes, my dreams and every need

God is the answer to each prayer

I beg You Lord, be always there !

AMEN.

 

 

THOSE ASHES ( 2019 ) 2019/03/09

Hark, what is it that I now hear

The sound of sleigh bells on my ear

Their ringing sounds so ever sweet

Oh how I pray they do repeat.

The tinkling of the bells anon

Reminding all that time moves on

Twill come and go and leave behind

Those ashes of another kind !

 

WHERE IS THE END OF SADNESS ?

 

HE LOST HIS WAY ( 2019 ) 2019/03/07

Old Solomon, he was a king

Who did possess most everything

He was the wisest of all men

None would e’er be alike again.

His instructions came from above

Conerning God and His great love

For forty years he ruled replete

His job, God’s Temple to complete.

This task achieved in seven years

And lauded by both prayer and tears

Oh sad end for King David’s son

He’d lost his way and was undone !
