I’m  lying here in dark of night

Anticipating  morning’s  light

A  bright new  dawn is on its  way

To  wish us all  a pleasant day.

How  wonderful our God must be

With  all His  generosity

And  greater strength with  peace of mind

A  truer friend  we’ll  never find  !

There  is a trip  that  I need take

One  that I wish  I might forsake

However  love,  I’ve  no recourse

And  no way left  to try outsource.

This  trip is mine alone  to brave

With  no time left  for me  to  save

It  is my choice  the last one too

Before  I bid  goodbye  to you.

The  sadness is not  mine alone

To  all who are  a lifetime known

For  we shall part  while we are  friends

Until  so sad,  all friendship  ends !

Oh tell me Lord,  where do I go

What  is it that  I need to know

How  shall  I carry on each  day

Please help me  Lord,  show me the way.

With  all my heart,  I’m  not afraid

You’ve  taught me well,  I made the grade

I’ve  found  my  Comfort once  again

My  true Love and  Forever  Friend !

I’d like to take this time to say

Thanks to you who helped share my day

And all who left while others stayed

Became my friends or passed away.

I’ll miss you all and hope you know

My prayers are with you as you go

Each one of you has taught me this

That life’s comprised of tears and bliss.

What matters most, as time rolls by

That we, in hope, good sense apply

For friendship is a crucial must

A gift of love and special trust !




EMOTION FREE ( 2019 ) 2019/02/05

There is this pair that I do see

Each morning, smiling back at me

We three have greeted every dawn

Practically since I was born.


We are old friends the three of us

And no one ever makes a fuss,

Their clothes look worn and faded too

But just like me, their hearts are true.


There is one plus I don’t possess

They’ve candied hearts within their chests

Now that may not mean much to you

But that’s one way to not feel blue.


Sometimes I wish that I might be

Like those ragdolls, emotion free !




DOES NATURE SPEAK ? ( 2018 ) 2018/11/25

I glanced out o’er my yard today

To watch leaves slowly drift away

As one by one they sailed on by

A gust of wind made each one fly.

It seemed as though they spoke to me

But silence is their destiny

There’s too much that I need to learn

The list is long, it’s turn by turn.

I often wonder what we’d do

If nature had a word or two

So you and I might understand

What is the message of the land !

A simple meal by candlelight

To take the chill off winter’s night

A table set with antique lace

Warmed by the glow of an embrace.

The silence that accompanies

This sudden chill before the freeze

While God and man try to maintain

The quiet calm that shall remain !
