One lonely heart beats in this breast

Will I find joy in what comes next

Since any move that I chance make

Could mean to me just more heartache ?

I do not think that I shall last

If life does not small pleasures cast

The lonely path is not much fun

Tis better far to have  someone !

 

AULD LANG SYNE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/11

True friendship is the kindest thing

It moves the heart to smile and sing

And raises all our hopes and joys

Like birthday gifts and children’s toys.

It’s a blessing that loving shares

To soothe the beast midst worldly cares

For without friends one’s cast aside

Into life’s emptiness outside

To languish wasted on the vine

Without the warmth of auld lang syne !

 

THIS OR THAT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/03

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 !

 

REMAINING FEW ( 2016 ) 2016/11/10

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 !
