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 !

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 !

 

 

 

MY BEST FRIEND ( 2016 ) 2016/02/13

I’ve traveled on life’s byways with stops along the way

And traversed many highways before the end of day

I’ve wandered far too long searching for the rainbow’s end

While asking God to help me to find my lifelong friend.

I lost my pal not long ago, I wish she were here

So I could say I miss her and why she was so dear

Perhaps time will tell if we shall ever meet again

But I’m not worried yet cause I still remember when !

 

 

 

I NEED A FRIEND ( 2015 ) 2015/12/01

I look outside, what do I see

A darkened sky that threatens me

An empty street that’s void of life

No sign of commerce, trade or strife.

I’m grateful for my quiet space

Right now I need a resting place

When will all of this chaos end

I sure could use a real good friend !
