There are some memories I keep

That intrude on my deepest sleep

They form a wall seems made of stone

That forces me to walk alone.

Tis not what keeps me up at night,

In hours twixt darkness and the light

Which is the time I fear the most

When lonliness turns into host.

Oh for the chance once more to be

A child of faith at Jesus’ knee

Forgive me Lord, all of my sin

Hear me dear God and let me in !

Let’s say a prayer, come Christmas Day

For all those children far away

Who’ve lived in need and know no peace

Where joys and dreaming are deceased.

They’ve never lived without the tears

That generate both hate and fears

Whose existence finds ’tis bereft

By times of war, years of neglect.

Oh helpless child who does not know

The gifts of God, Who loves us so !

How my heart yearns for the days of yore

Before life’s heartbreak slipt through the door

And left behind an unholy mess

That I deal with now without redress

I have learned to accept God’s decree

In its unbending finality !

 

ALL LIFE HAS GOT ( 2018 ) 2018/11/23

There is a land where dreams are made

In sunny glen and evening shade

Where every day contains a chance

Again to find life’s lost romance !

Perchance that hope might come to be

Some wish filled with sweet ecstacy

Wherein the heart that knew regret

Despite its pain, learned to forget !

Perhaps for those who’ve passed this way

Our Lord above has made delay

And metered out a final shot

To give it all this life has got !

 

A GIFT FOR YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/11/22

Oh Lord, dear God, let not my weakness show

Oh Lord above, help all my strengths to grow

I’ve been Your servant for most of my life

Through pain and sorrow, abundance of strife.

You’ve taught me how to be humble and fair

To give all I’ve got and something to spare

The words in my mouth and deeds that I do

All of this my Lord, is a gift for You !

 

 

 

GOD’S CHARITY ( 2018 ) 2018/09/20

What quiet signals do we send

When we’ve moved so close to the end

What simple gestures do we make

When our whole system’s doomed to break ?

The moment’s here and on its own

Wherein the final action’s known

And as the fateful hour appears

A darkness falls among our peers.

Soon angel wings waft some away

To seek a dawn that’s gone astray

Forgive us Lord for all the sin

And help us save most left within

How fortunate that each may be

Depending on God’s charity !

 

“MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD”

PSALM/ 66:1 / 88:1 / 95:1-2 / 98:4-6 / 100:1-5 / 149:3 / et al.

T’was once upon a time ago

When we were full of life aglow

Before emerged this need to know

With tiny impetus for show

Our lives were truly less confused

Filled with days both calm and diffused

May all that anger be excused

To find ourselves in turn  amused !
