Oh  for the  days when dreams  were new

And growing  up  seemed  over due

When  children’s  laughs were full of  glee

And  love was  still a  mystery.

The  Lord  Himself  is always there

He  heals  our wounds  and  hears our prayer

Bless  God for  all the  gifts  He gives

And  all  the sins which  He  forgives !

 

LOST VICTORY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/04

Oh Lord, there is  so much  pain  I feel

It  goes on  and  on,  forever  real

I  cannot  escape its iron  grasp

With   each  breath I  take,  it’s  like  my last.

Sometimes  I think it  would better  be

To  close my  eyes  in lost victory

Because  this needs all  the strength  I’ve  got

One of those   days that  I’d  rather not !

These  final words  that I recall

“A happy time  was  had by  all”

Too  many conversations  heard

Repeat  the very  selfsame  words.

So  blest  are we  remembering

The  greater joy  families  bring,

The  love and  care that  we receive

Help  all once  more  in hope  believe !

 

 

 

 

 

MY CHOICE ( 2019 ) 2019/12/01

The  winter chill is  moving in

It’s  time to  take it  on the  chin

Unpack  your warmest   set  of clothes

Including  scarf,  gloves,  hat and hose.

Your  best  wool sweater  underneath

And  don’t forget the  holly  wreath

I  spy the  frost on  every bough

The  weather’s  truly  colder now.

Could   use   the warmth  that threatens all

As  per  our  latest  know- it- all

Somehow  I  think it is  a ruse

And  nothing  close to  what I ‘d choose !

 

 

 

 

DOUBTS AND FEARS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/30

Dreams  are part of each one’s life scheme

For  none exists  without  some dream

The  good,   the bad,  the  discontent

Have  dreamt  those that from God  are sent.

The  Good Book  tells  tale after  tale

Of  those  angels  that  are  regaled

The  simplest  babe  while fast  asleep

Reacts  to dreams  the while he  sleeps.

No  one  eludes  reality

Of  this  wide world  of  mystery

Through  which  all fears  do ever  wind,

The  place where  our doubts  are confined !

 

 

WHAT USED TO BE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/29

Oh  for the  days of what  might have been

With  memories of  remember  when,

As  the heart  recalls  the times  we knew

When  children were  as all  children do.

Their  names are tatooed  upon my brain

Like  loving words of an  old refrain

That  tugs on those  chains  of kindness past,

Of  the days  long gone  that did not last !

 

 

 

 

I’M WAITING HERE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/28

When  I was young  and full of dreams

My  heart was  bursting at the seams

The  world  about was bright and smart

And  I tried  hard  to care impart.

The  passing years  grew wings and flew

I  did the  best that  I could do.

There  were some days  I shan’t disguise

As  tears welled  up and filled my eyes.

I  searched for  love I could not store,

Love  that I never knew  before

And  found it in  the Word of God

In  chapter,  verse,  t’was  not that  hard.

I’ve  learned since then,  His  Truth  is all

I’m  waiting  here  upon  His call !
