GOD’S SOLUTION ( 2017 ) 2017/11/13

I’ve grown through all these many years or so

It seems there’s really no place left to go

There’s no way yet to thrive in outer space

In truth it’s not  a safe or happy place.

I’d rather be stuck in a cardboard box

Or forced to walk without both shoes and sox

Than sacrifice the pleasures that I’ve known

Among my family and friends at home.

At this stage of life I find I’m confined

By the strings of our love and joy combined

I believe that I’ll simply hang around

Until God’s solution at last is found !

 

FAMILY TREE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/18

In a garden long, long ago

In a special place I don’t know

Lived someone related to me

Long, long ago in history.

Perhaps one day we’ll get to meet

On a corner of heaven’s street

And if we can’t I will not mind

There will be others I shall find

For we are one huge family

And a part of that selfsame tree !

I know that God is everywhere

He hears my thoughts and every prayer

I am so glad He’s on my side

From start to finish, He’s my ride

How sweet it is for me to be

A part of His great family !

 

 

HOW MUCH I CARED ( 2017 ) 2017/04/05

There’s a special place that I do recall

Quite a long time ago when I was small,

A large clapboard house on a country road

My great uncles built for their mom’s abode.

She’d been born in June eighteen-sixty-one

To a life one could guess was not much fun

At fifteen she married the stablehand

Oh, so far away in a foreign land.

This is a small part of their history

And the story of  how they came to be,

As I look back on all the joys we shared

How grateful I am and how much I cared !

 

GOOD FRIENDS ( 2016 ) 2016/10/02

We’ve been good friends for many years

Through smiles and laughter, doubts and fears

We have been up, we have been down

Hugs and kisses, at times a frown

I’ve often thought what shall I do

Without a pal who’s just like you ?

It’s been so long that I’ve forgot

What life would be if you were not

And so today I want to state

That we are buddies soon or late

Whatever else may chance to be

I’m here for you when you need me !

 

CONTINUUM ( 2016 ) 2016/08/28

I here the ticking of the clock

It speaks to me, “tick-tock, tick-tock”

The time is slow, for time is vast

As lives slip by, all image passed.

I see the pictures on each wall

The times we lost I’ve seen them all

How sad that we too soon grow old

And leave the safety of the fold !

 

 

 

 

FACE YOUR FEAR ( 2016 ) 2016/04/30

When we were young we learned to share

Those early years taught one to care

For lives sometimes can be quite brief

Each bears some semblance to a leaf

That’s born upon the family tree

And tethered there for all to see.

While some may shrivel and grow sere

Still others flee from life severe

As those who cling to that last hope

Within the darkness try to grope

The time is soon, the need is clear

Take hold your roots and face your fear !
