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 !

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 !
