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 !

 

 

TO SAY GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/18

There are no words that can help explain

The length and depth of a mother’s pain

Losing a child no matter the age

To an illness or another’s rage !

Through the passage of time, aches may fade

As sadness and loss are all displayed

Seems the worst of all that can be said

Are that those we have loved are now dead,

And with heavy heart and tearful sigh

Were denied the chance to say goodbye !

My dearest child where are you gone

What masquerade have you put on

Among the memories we’ve kept

Or midst the tears that we have wept ?

I’d like to know if God’s been good

And kept you safely as He could

For in your life you did no wrong

There seems no place you can’t belong.

My heart desires that you should know

Though you’re not here I miss you so !

There is no way I understand

How tempers get so out of hand

I’ve never seen such anger shown

From persons both known and unknown

What is there that can rile one up

Enough to overflow the cup ?

We’ve seen the foolishness of some

Who cannot seem to overcome

This sad behavior they have used

On those they’ve bullied or abused

Perhaps through faith and time alone

They’ll seek God’s wisdom to atone !

 

MY DESTINY ( 2017 ) 2017/09/25

I’m glad to say with no regret

That I’ve not met my Saviour yet

There still is time left to erase

Those hidden failures that I face.

Oh Lord, I try so hard each day

To follow closely in Your way

But I have faults as most folks do

And other quirks I need work through.

Well I’ll keep trying best I can

And with Your help may understand

That You will keep an eye on me

Helping to seek my destiny !

My heart is full it heaves a sigh

Too soon my love, we bid goodbye

I will to you one fact revealed

Your love should never be concealed

For words that you have left unsaid

Shall not be heard once you are dead !
