Seems life has been a timeless one

So full of gladness, joy and fun

Along the way there’s been some pain

T’was part of lifetime’s  growth and gain

Oft I’ve  wondered  what it’s about

If I should laugh or cry or shout

It is a choice that we’ve all made

With circumstance let’s pray won’t fade

Now here we are at this road’s end

At last with God who’s our good friend !

If I were high up in the sky

What is it that my eyes would spy

Lots of rooftops affording space

To pigeons, gulls, all birds apace

With other havens to be found

Where they are safer than on ground.

I am so glad to be alive

And able to help birds survive

Supplying all those old stale buns,

Kitchen scraps along with bread crumbs

Tis how it is I’m known to be

Bird feeder and their good fairy !

Oh how I’ve wished I had a friend

Who’d bide with me until the end

Or take the time to sup with me

Share coffee, tea and company.

How sure am I God’s always there

Anxious to learn He’ll constant care

No matter what the issue is,

Because I am forever His ?

I promise that I never will

Betray His trust or doubt His skill

He is the Master I adore

The Friend that I’ve been waiting for !

 

I’LL VISIT AGAIN ( 2019 ) 2019/01/07

Well my dear, I saw an old friend today

With her soft pink skin and her hair of gray

Her eyes so clear framed by those gentle curls

She must have been the prettiest of girls.

As we sat there together I could see

That she struggled hard to remember me

She was a stranger that I knew so well

There’s no point to the oldtime tales retell.

I’m sorry that my dear friend has moved on

But I’ll visit again ere we’re both gone !

 

TO ROSA,  GOD BLESS !

 

GOD WALKS BESIDE ME ( 2018 ) 2018/08/08

I have browsed through many a page of time

And wandered lost in the vast world of rhyme

I’ve traveled alone or in company

From ocean to ocean and sea to sea

And all that I’ve learned and all that I know

God walks beside me wherever I go !

 

AMEN.

I love You Lord, that’s without end

Because You are my bestest Friend

Through thick and thin, You’re on my side

To You alone I can confide.

I need to laugh and bide with joy

You’ve helped me Lord my faith employ

Whatever You will ask of me

So quickly Lord, I do agree.

And if dear Lord we never meet

The thought of You is still as sweet

Whatever else that You may choose

I’m confident, I cannot lose !

 

 

GREAT FRIEND ( 2016 ) 2016/07/22

When I was young I used to pray

“Please help me Lord, show me the way ”

And then as I began to age

My life soon turned another page.

I spoke to God quite frequently

It seemed we shared true empathy

At least that is what I believed

And do not think I was deceived.

Now that I’m old I understand

Our God is always close at hand

He is our comfort and great friend

Remaining so until the end !
