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 !

 

 

 

 

 

 

NO MORE TIME ( 2016 ) 2016/08/04

There are those days I can’t explain

Why sunshine makes me  feel like rain

Or why a rainbow in the sky

Compels one to begin to cry

There’s so much good I’d like to share

If only there were some to care.

But I’m afraid those folks I knew

Have disappeared, all but a few

And fate has stolen every friend

Too long before their life should end

It seems there’s great conspiracy

To hasten world propriety.

We’re relics of another time

Another place, another clime

There’s no space left for us to fit

We’ll have to make the best of it

While stating this we must resign

It’s over now we’ve no more time !

 

STORMY NIGHT ( 2016 ) 2016/05/02

I feel the power of the storm

It’s crying out, move on, move on

The wind it lashes through the trees

And carries off all of the leaves.

The rain in torrents pouring down

Reminds us that we all could drown

Oh what a fear that we must bear

Tomorrow’s sorrows, ours to share.

If we can make it past the night

And chance survive until daylight

Perhaps exists the hope that we

May live through this catastrophe !

 

COMMON DESTINY ( 2016 ) 2016/03/26

The moment’s come to bid goodbye

To all I love ere I should die

For time is swift as we all know

One can’t command it stop or go.

The end is quick, affords no choice

We are adrift without a voice

It matters not the age we are

Or if we’ve traveled wide or far.

The goal is clear enough to see

Just how each one is dear to me

Since all must pass, as is the case

It ‘s still the rule none can erase !

 

NOT FAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/02/25

We little know or can surmise

What fate will bring or life surprise

Each day begins with a clean slate

That offers chance upon its plate.

A new beginning one and all

The chips of life await the call

But who will win or who will lose

I do not know who gets to choose.

Enough to say I cannot bear

Too many times life is not fair !

 

MYSTERY ( 2015 ) 2015/12/28

Oh Lancelot, dear Lancelot, where is it you have gone

What lost and lonely metaphor may we depend upon

Oh Lancelot, kind Lancelot, please help to make me smile

I would love to be a maiden for just a little while

And when my life is over and my fate has been resolved

I’d rise above the madness with no mystery unsolved !
