As I awake to morning’s sound

The dawn’s exploding all around

I hear bees hum and cats meow

The birds all sing while dogs bow-wow.

The noise of traffic fills the air

While beeping horns annoy and blare

The sidewalks soon begin to crowd

Street vendors hawking goods aloud.

Oh what delight each daylight brings,

A joyous heart that hums and sings,

Along with happiness and glee

Contributes to comradery !

 

 

OUR FATHER ( 2018 ) 2018/05/05

This is the first I can recall

I find my back against the wall

It all seems strange with no debrief

There is scant time to seek relief.

We flounder in life’s deep morass

Without the aid of skill or class

I wonder what the future brings

Along with normal happenings.

Shall we survive until the end

In need of courage and a friend

Let’s say the prayer we all know well

And to the Lord our wishes tell !

 

 

 

STILL BE FRIENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/01/01

There was a time that’s now gone past

When we dreamt dreams that seemed to last

And compromise was but the thought

Of all the lessons we’d been taught.

When life meant more than recompense

And most espoused good common sense

Consideration was the key

To all of God’s humanity.

Alas for most this disappeared

Replaced by arrogance and fear

Is it too late to make amends

To garner strength and still be friends ?

 

 

 

TO HAVE SOMEONE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/24

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 !
