To those I’ve known  and loved before

Whose  memories my heart has stored

Here in the  reaches of my mind

Midst  joy and  feeings ever  kind,

Remember that  I’ll miss you all

And  pray the Lord is at your call

While  angels spread  their wings above

And  bathe you in God’s constant love !

A little child  did pray to God

“Please bring my daddy home to me

Without him here our lives are hard

He fought a war to set us free “.

This message went upon its way

Just hoping  that none will forget

To send that daddy home  to stay

Before their  joy  becomes regret !

There are these photos on the wall

Of folks I barely know at all

There’s a few I had never met

And others that I shan’t forget.

Familiar faces from the past

All precious images that last

As life once was, grateful to see

When all were young and used to be !

 

LASTING MEMORIES ( 2018 ) 2018/08/30

When I  reflect  o’er my lifespan

And try hard as I ever can

There are these things I greatly miss

The sweetness of my mother’s kiss,

The pleasure of my father’s smile

He made my life a world worthwhile,

The treasure of each tiny tot

Whose hugs and kisses meant a lot,

Such moments cannot be erased

Nor somehow get to be replaced.

I know all this is from the past

These memories I pray will last !

 

 

A HUGE GOD BLESS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/05

Sometimes I dream ’bout long ago

And all the joys we used to know,

I miss that world so very much

Too sad we couldn’t keep in touch.

Seems now as though I’m in the past

Perhaps one that’s surviving last

Oh how I wish that I might spend

A day or two among my friends.

Well I’m no fool, that is a fact

We cannot bring the old times back

And need to bargain for much less,

Let’s settle for a huge God bless !

 

 

 

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 !
