Oh  for the  days when dreams  were new

And growing  up  seemed  over due

When  children’s  laughs were full of  glee

And  love was  still a  mystery.

The  Lord  Himself  is always there

He  heals  our wounds  and  hears our prayer

Bless  God for  all the  gifts  He gives

And  all  the sins which  He  forgives !

Oh charity,  be kind to me

Please help  me set  my body free

How much  longer  can I persist

What  shall I do  to pain resist ?

At  times  I’m sure there’ll be no  end

More like a life  without a friend

I didn’t think  I’d have to bear

Unending  pain  or deep despair.

I am not angered  or divorced

With all the  issues time’s  enforced

I only know  that  God is there

To ease all  pain and answer  prayer !

Oh, how I wish that I had been

The apple on old Adam’s tree

I’d shake my leaves and tuck them in

To keep his idle hands off me.

I’d tell him not to take a bite

Before the troubles could begin

When he and Eve, out of some spite

Took Satan’s dare right on the chin.

Oh, sad the day man was denied,

Remembering in all you do

That God to us has never lied

Your happiness is up to you !

 

 

ONE MORE CHANCE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/06

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 !

 

 

WHO LOVES US SO ( 2018 ) 2018/12/03

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 !

 

 

 

UNBENDING FINALITY ( 2018 ) 2018/11/24

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 !
