At times I sense a whistle

As it rides upon the wind

There silent as the thistle

While it begs, “please let me in”.

When the moment seems to die

And the quiet does not bend

All the world whispers “goodbye”

And each friendship must now end !

I hear the sounds of early morning now

Somewhere in the distance, a mooing cow

With traffic passing on a busy road

The whir of truck tires with their heavy load

The predawn mist that finds it’s meant to stay

On a day that seems dark and dullish grey

As the tides roll in they all crash ashore

Just to wash away what was here before !

How often I have wished that I

Could spread my wings and learn to fly

O’er mountain peaks there rising high

Across the meadows whisking by

The waters stretched to touch the sky

While gravity on earth denies.

Along the ridges wide and dry

Where eaglets nest and flight imply

I hear the mighty oceans sigh

And whisper to  this world goodbye !

 

GOD BLESS HIS WORLD  !

Seems like old age is sneaking up on me

Urging to make way for reality

And join the varied seasons passing by

As all the fragments of each year do fly.

With all my heart I wish that I could see

The times I loved that were our used to be

Too soon old memories we’ve kept must die

While most need learn how does one bid goodbye !

I never thought I’d rue the day

Once that I gave my heart away,

I stored my dreams upon the shelf

With no reserve about myself.

This life I planned of magic theme

Would ne’er become idyllic scheme

It didn’t take too long to see

True happiness is never free

No matter how we try and try

There’s no kind way to say goodbye !

 

 

CURTAIN CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/10/13

What does one seek after the midnight hour

Neath the veil of darkness and loss of power

When the stilled air deserts its resting place

And we bid farewell to eternal grace

May the love of God now protect us all

From the final cut of the curtain call !

I hear the echoes through the trees

Life’s shadows move with each new breeze

Old voices carry loud and clear

And fall upon the listening ear.

The book has closed the story ends

And bids farewell to all our friends

To leave one nothing more to say

Ere we are forced to look away.

But let us go in peace and calm

Believing one must do no harm

Remembering those days of yore

And all of paradise before !
