There’s often a thought that I have had

That life’s not clearly all good or bad

And sometimes trauma gets in the way

Like visions we’ve had that go astray.

Tis foolish to think we’re of one mind

For this world consists of every kind

The short and tall or the lean and fat

Those who prefer either this or that,

Only time will tell where all this ends

We can be enemies or make friends !

 

FAST FRIENDS ( 2017 ) 2017/05/08

When I was young too long ago

There was so much I did not know

I learned that I might wonder why

We had to walk while birds could fly

Or why the stars were seen at night

And spent their daytime out of sight,

Or how the snow would fall all day

And by next morning melt away.

Some other things I’ve noticed too

This ageing of both me and you

Tis sad to say it never ends

I pray that we’ll remain fast friends !

I’d like to shout from rooftops high

To all of those just passing by

Is there compassion in your heart

What must we do to reach a start

Let’s try once more to make amends

And see if we can’t all be friends !

 

 

GOD’S EXIT DOOR ( 2017 ) 2017/01/11

We have been friends so many years

We’ve shared the range of joy and fears

We laughed a lot, we also cried

As family and pals have died.

We toughened up and made a choice

We chose to heed the calmer voice

For this scant time we each have left

Perchance to guard against its theft

As all that we’ve been wishing for

May help us reach God’s exit door !

For all of the joy that the holidays bring

There is this bit reminding us of one thing

That through all the pleasures each season may bear

Sometimes there’s a reason that we daren’t share.

The heart’s just a muscle that rises and falls

Yet treasures the moment and often recalls

Those times that were real, much before used to be

When some had to leave for a new destiny

Wherever they’ve gone, we have bid them adieu

As we must carry on, the remaining few !

I had a call just yesterday

A friend told me you went away

I’m sorry that I was not there

I’m sure you knew how much I cared.

We have been friends for forty years

And shared our coffee, laughs and tears

I’ll miss you kid, I feel so bad

So much in common that we had.

We lived our lives and kept no score

And understood what was in store

What shall I do now that you’re gone

I’ll trust in God and carry on !

 

 

 

YOU AND I ( 2016 ) 2016/04/28

I wish I knew that you and I

Would never have to say goodbye

And that our friendship would live on

Until the day we both are gone.

How foolish since that cannot be

For we both share mortality

And so old friend we must prepare

When you and I no longer share !
