There is this tugging on my heart

How did it  ever get its start

A  numbness rising  from the floor

Into  my feet and  out the door.

What’s  happening,  I do not know

I  cannot make it  stop or go

Please lead me Lord,  teach me the way

Help  me survive  each lonely  day.

Where are the tears  I need to cry

With  each and every  sad goodbye

Where  are the kisses  I have earned

Ere all  my bridges  have been burned ?

 

 

 

CLEAR SKIES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/27

The  clouds  overhead are  dark and grim

The sky  above  now  has grown dim

As  evening  shadows  gently  fall

The  night moves  in  to cover all.

What happens  when  the world’s  asleep

And images  from  corners creep

Across the  room with  purpose clear

To  know  a  night  without a fear ?

Attend  the coming morn  in shrouds

Lest dawn  arrives  bedecked in clouds

Let’s  veil the  fullness of our day

And  chase  all of our doubts  away !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ONE LAST LOOK ( 2019 ) 2019/06/28

I find myself out on a limb

Is there some one to let me

How shall I save myself on earth

What is the value of my worth ?

I know that God is always there

And that He hears my every prayer

I’ve tried so hard to do what’s right

Each morning, noon and through the night.

My clock is  running  out it  seems

Like all my hopes and all my dreams

The time is now to close the book

I wish to take this one last look !

 

 

 

 

 

 

LIFE IS A GAMBLE ( 2019 ) 2019/05/07

I’ve trod the road uncounted miles

And shed more than a million tears

While time evoked a thousand smiles

As life revealed a hundred fears.

I cannot know the why of it

From each angle life has displayed

I only know I hope to fit

Before all of my cards are played !

 

MAKE HASTE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/20

A little voice within my head

Whispered to me,  “get out of bed,

Stop feeling sorry for yourself

And rise up from that dusty shelf. ”

“It’s not as bad as what you think

Please move back safely from the brink

Tis time to pay attention to

All that the Lord has done for you !”

“Wake up, wake up, ere it’s too late

Just how much longer will you wait ?

This scene is coming to an end

Make haste to mend your fence, my friend  !”

 

 

 

OBSESSED ( 2019 ) 2019/01/12

At times I feel I am obsessed

By hopes and dreams and fears possessed

The hope that we shall find a way

To seek a greater role to play

A dream to be the brighter star

Than what we ever really are

The fear to put our dreams to rest

And hope that all will do their best !

 

 

 

 

SEE ME THROUGH ( 2018 ) 2018/08/15

I’ve seen the world about me cry

And heard its whispers of goodbye

I’ve felt the tremor of its fears

All through these recent lonely years

I’ve known the truth and heard its lies

And seen them revel in disguise.

I’ve prayed for help in my distress

And been denied proper redress

I’ve hoped that opportunity

Would visit soon and set me free

But most of all I’ve asked of You

Dear Lord above, please see me through !
