When I was young I used to pray

That I would be a mom one day

I’d raise my offspring to be good

And do the things that children should.

I’d hoped that we’d fulfill the dream

It was a lock or so it seemed

The angels watched from up above

And filled their heads with care and love.

But love is not enough to save

Each one of them from perils grave

There is no way that we may know

Wherein life’s tragedies will grow.

In winds of war or illness great

Who knows the time or day or date ?

Throughout the world, before too long

Folks will count most eight billion strong

There’s no two that will be exact

Believe, because this is a fact.

While each must follow their own track

Sadly there is no turning back

So just keep going and perform

And try your best to rules conform.

There is no right, there is no wrong

We seem to land where we belong

The only Power we’re subject to

Is God above, He’ll see us through !

 

THE VALUES OF LIFE ( 2018 ) 2018/02/08

The winds of March are queueing up

Before life brews its final cup

The tedium of time is here

Each destination looms unclear

Perhaps tomorrow each may learn

The heritage that we have earned ?

 

ACCEPT DEFEAT ( 2018 ) 2018/01/16

This world we know is dying fast

It seems that  peace will never last

In truth it cannot ever win

There is no way we can begin.

The die was cast too long ago

There’s no route left to touch or grow

How sad that we have come this far

To barely reach or touch the bar.

We’ll bow our heads in feigned surprise

Since we have caused our own demise !

And so it is that I am tossed

Among the winds and shadows lost !

 

HAVE A HEART ( 2017 ) 2017/06/19

I hung my heart out on a limb

And prayed someone would reel me in

I searched for love the way one should

And wound up lost in some vast wood.

I tried my hand at show and tell

And that did not go quite so well

I decided right then and there

I’d had enough of grief to spare.

And so I bought myself a book

Turned out that I was this great cook,

Love’s not what it’s cracked up to be

Seems business was my destiny !

 

 

 

 

 

CURTAIN FALL ( 2016 ) 2016/12/27

Seems I don’t know what will  come next

I cannot read the hidden text

Some days I’m sure ’twill be my last

And others when the surge has passed.

I find it most confusing now

When shall I take my closing bow

It’s difficult to get a grip

There are no lessons, how to ship !

Well, God and me are on one page

Though surely not upon the stage

And when I make that final call

I’m ready for His curtain fall !
