Sometimes  the ones we love the best

Are  those who put us to the  test

They  try our  patience or our  purse

We’re  never sure  which is the worst.

We  carry on  with fingers crossed

And  pray our purpose won’t  be lost

No  matter how hard it all seems

Rely  on God to save our dreams !

My  dearest friend I’m  missing you

With  all my heart  when I am blue

We were great friends through all the years

Times were we  laughed or cried real  tears.

Some days were good and  some were bad

We beat  the odds  though life was  sad

I  truly  wish  you were  still  here

For one last  time to bend  your ear !

To those I’ve known  and loved before

Whose  memories my heart has stored

Here in the  reaches of my mind

Midst  joy and  feeings ever  kind,

Remember that  I’ll miss you all

And  pray the Lord is at your call

While  angels spread  their wings above

And  bathe you in God’s constant love !






A HUGE GOD BLESS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/05

Sometimes I dream ’bout long ago

And all the joys we used to know,

I miss that world so very much

Too sad we couldn’t keep in touch.

Seems now as though I’m in the past

Perhaps one that’s surviving last

Oh how I wish that I might spend

A day or two among my friends.

Well I’m no fool, that is a fact

We cannot bring the old times back

And need to bargain for much less,

Let’s settle for a huge God bless !

The shadows fall upon the eaves

To mingle in the evening breeze

The dwindling light now flickers slow

Soon tis the hour for light to go.

The sun is fading neath the hill

Before too long the wind is still

I hear a voice reach out to me

It’s searching for some sympathy.

The day’s been long and soon will end

The time has come to be with friends !

I wish, I wish that I could be

The candles on your birthday cake

The star upon your Christmas tree

Or mushrooms on your juicy steak.

I’d like to be your one true friend

A buddy who will understand

Or lifetime pal until the end

I would be there to help you stand.

Now friendship is a special treat

A precious gift that we may share

It softens many blows we meet

And gives us cause to smile and care !

I wish that you and I could be

Best friends through all eternity

But if that seems too long a time

I’ll settle for just this lifetime !

I wish that you and I could be

Together in eternity

Forever is a long, long time

And can be quite a lonesome climb.

But you and I may truly be

Good partners through infinity

I cannot name another one

Who’d bring such joy and lots of fun.

And so old friend we’ll find much luck

If I’m your daffy, you’re my duck !

I hear a rustling in the tree

And wonder now who can that be

See there a flash of mottled coat

A vision of especial note.

Oh precious bird, what do you do

Is there a way I can help you

I wish I had some cracker crumb

I’d be so pleased to feed you some.

But you and I are at loose ends

There seems no way we can be friends

For what you have is your sharp beak

While all I have is tongue in cheek !

There is a bit of keen advice that I would give you all

That as you travel through your life try to avoid the toll

Of those so full of avarice who wish to be a friend

Take care because their interest sometimes is but pretend !

I wish I had a magic wand

That reached into the vast beyond

To make each happy dream come true

A gift of joy from me to you,

That is what friends are really for

To keep us close and even more !

And if my wand  could work in space

We might escape this human race

To gather there at God’s front door

And bide with Him forevermore !


WHERE AND WHEN ( 2014 ) 2014/03/14

Do you question who my tears are for,

All my loving friends who’ll come no more,

Those who challenged all my fantasy

With these faded visions I still see ?

Faces haunt me both the night and day

I can’t shrink their images away,

No matter if it is great or small

Sad because they can no longer call !

I loved the tenure of their wise speech

And the bridge to freedom they could breach

I’d be grateful if we’d meet again

God choose the day, I’ll do where and when !


MEMORY ( 2003 ) 2013/02/11

Just as the wind off the hill whispers to the trees

Just as the bird on the bough sings into the breeze,

Just so my friend as life begins its final fall

I must tell you how I feel ere this curtain’s call.

Some songs I’ve heard have no words, others have no tune

They swell and rise and float aloft in time festooned.

Some friends I‘ve known crossed my path nodding cold farewell

Others stayed close by my side though they kiss and tell,

Some who came to plead my cause lingered on too long,

I do remember most the good, the kind, the strong.


While simple ways and gentle thoughts and silence too

Are peace that age has brought to me in purpose true.

If I count beyond my fears, just one smiling day

I won’t need another dream or another stay.
