There is a God, I know He lives

With all the blessings that He gives

He is my Saviour and my Friend

Who’ll stick with me until the end.

I have no fear, He’ll be with me

Until I reach Eternity

I often wonder how He knows

About my fingers and my toes,

My every thought and every deed

My hopes, my dreams and every need

God is the answer to each prayer

I beg You Lord, be always there !

AMEN.

Oh blessed Lord, come live with me

Invade my heart eternally

Help me to keep my life in line

And with your aid, I will be fine.

Oh Lord God, hear my simple plea

There is no place I’d rather be

Than safe with You each day to rise

Forever more in Paradise !

There’s a wall rises by the sea

That resonates past treachery

With fountains, trees and marble cold

And names to last through eons old.

Remembering this is our choice

Our dead shall never lose their voice

But cry aloud so all should hear

There’ll be no tyrant here to fear

This is our home twill ever be

Land of the brave forever free !

SUMMER DAYS ( 2016 ) 2016/09/02

Let’s say goodbye to summer’s days

With all her happy carefree ways

It’s sunny nature, flimsy clothes

A boater’s call of “thar she blows”,

A picnic lunch upon the beach

And no place left the sand can’t reach !

Well times do show and pass away

As we wake to another day

And realise that summer’s gone

While fall’s been left to carry on

But wait, there must be more to see

For time does reach eternity !

Dear Lord in heaven hear our plea

Make clear our way to victory

Safeguard us on our lonely path

And save us from old Satan’s wrath.

With all our lives so full of awe

For deeds You’ve wrought and things we saw

There is no choice but to decide

We are with You till that last ride !

I’d like to think where e’er you are,  you hear the bugle’s call

And know we’re missing you from mid-November through next fall

I see you in the twilight just before the even’s pall

It’s with morning sunlight rising I miss you most of all !

 

PROFOUND ( 2015 ) 2015/10/25

I feel the silence all around

There is no movement to be found

No beating heart, no breathing sound

The quiet permeates the ground

The air is still, unused, unbound

The loss intense, the wound profound !

Oh for the days of auld lang syne

And friends we’ve lost or cannot find

We knew such joy and made great plans

The dreams we shared traversed all spans.

Though others fell beside the way

We managed to get through each day

But truth to tell it’s not the same

Sometimes I can’t recall a name.

I see the face and note the scent

I don’t remember where it went

There is a void left in my heart

This empty space since your depart !

 

I RECALL ( 2015 ) 2015/03/26

Those images that I recall

So long ago when I was small

My father’s laugh, my mother’s smile

Sweet memories held by a child

The smells, the sounds that filled the air

The joyous times that we all shared.

Oh how grown up it was to be

Included in their company

Such love held fast both now and then

And glowed as I remember when !

 

DADDY DEAR ( 2014 ) 2014/09/20

Sixty-five years ago today

My father died, he passed away

We did not know if we’d survive

How would we keep ourselves alive ?

It wasn’t easy I’ll tell you

But we were strong and made it through

It’s true to say that I’m the last

With memories of that sad past !

Such feelings one can never share

Perhaps you know if you’ve been there

So long ago it’s like a dream

That wakens with a silent scream !

He missed it all, the laughs and sighs

The joyous days, the sad goodbyes

How many times I’ve wished you here

My heart still aches for Daddy dear !

 

 

 

 

 

 

ACQUAINTANCE ( 2013 ) 2013/08/30

I count among my friends as best I ever had

The first of all is God and then my mom and dad

I know you’ll be surprised but this is truly so

A friend is always there no matter where you go.

When I was just a girl, my dad he went away

He never really left, I speak with him each day

I know he will not answer we are worlds apart

But I can feel his love because he’s in my heart.

And as the years have passed my mom has joined his side

To leave me all alone impatient here outside

Some day it will just happen I shall join them there

We will be as one with eternity to share.
