Long time  ago when I  was young

We had  great songs  that could  be sung

About  our nation and our lives

And thousands  over time  survives.

These words of courage  carry on

With  impact of the clarion

They sing of life and  love and care

Of hope and joy,  grief and despair.

Let’s lend  our  voice to all we feel

Because  our  sentiment  is real

Like all  the  verses we have heard

Repeat  to us  God’s  promised word !

A  little  bird there on the  wing

His pretty song did choose to sing

The notes did  travel on  the air

To lend the  hour a special  flair,

Oh  how I  wish  that  I could  be

So like  that bird,  joyous and free !

 

 

QUIET PEACE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/15

The air  is damp and  holds a chill

The wind  is wet  and oh so still

There is no sound  that can be heard

No peep  or chirp  from any bird.

Tis like  a prelude  to a storm

Wherein  the clouds have  yet to form

Help me,  oh Lord,  to find  release

To spend  my days in  quiet peace !

 

AMEN.

From my  perch here  above the crowd

I  see the sun  behind the cloud

The light  it filters  through the blind

To  focus on my troubled  mind

And  brings to me  a message of

The  peace of  God’s  eternal love.

I feel  the warmth of love and care

It  fills my heart,  it’s everywhere

Oh  what a joy  each day does bring

True love that from our God  does spring !

 

 

WHO MADE THE RULES ? ( 2019 ) 2019/09/12

There is a chance that you and I

One day will have to bid goodbye

But who knows when or wonders why

Who made the rules that do apply ?

 

FINAL REST ( 2019 ) 2019/09/08

When first I  held  you in my arms

My sweetest child  so full  of charm

You stole my heart and my soul too

Like no one person  e’er could do

I  never thought  that life would be

Full of  this  joy you’ve  brought to me.

 

In all the  years you  did not fail

Or steal  the wind out of my sail

We’ve weathered  every sort of storm

And kept our lives about  the norm

Tis tragic that you  couldn’t  stay

Wherein at last  my heart will lay !

 

NO GUARANTEES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/06

There  are no  guarantees in life

For mother,  child,  husband  or wife,

We all  have travelled  on life’s road

Unburdened  or with heavy load

There is no  crowd to cheer us on

No magic  words to lean upon

No tragic curse that  we’re aware

Or law that says  what must be fair.

We understand that on each path

There can be times of  doubt or wrath

Yet often  seems so  very sweet

When hope and joy  with love compete

I do not  know  the  why of it

And pray  most times that we shall fit !
