It seems each road shall have an end

Without a lover or a friend

The seasons change or pass away

And move on by, day after day

The stars above fade aft each night

And disappear in morning’s light.

The sun will break its fast at dawn

While we are left to carry on

How lonely that one lifetime seems

With out its history and dreams

As all pass into the oblique

Deserting every quest we seek !


WITHOUT GOALS ( 2019 ) 2019/10/24

The  air is thin and smells lke snow

When winter comes  where does one go

And where will all God’s  creatures hide

If  there’s no warmth to find outside ?

Oh  Lord,  have mercy on those souls

Whose lives are lost and  without goals !




HERE AND BEYOND ( 2019 ) 2019/06/18

I often think  it’s sad that we

Must live with each  infirmity

Yet it may make us stronger now

If we could learn the  why and how

This life  is not a sack of dreams

Filled with a mass of wasted schemes.

It’s real,  it’s here, we  need take care

This is a  concept  all  may share

God offers us a  second chance

To live,  to hope,  to circumstance

It’s  up  to us  to  carry  on

The Lord’s our strength here and beyond !





HELP US GROW ( 2018 ) 2018/07/25

I spy the remnants of my life

Surviving all its stress and strife

I sense the depth of my defense

While reaching out for recompense.

Where are the goals I thought I had

That separate good from the bad,

When will I learn to use my time

In aiding those who dare to climb ?

I find myself caught in the net

That seems to have no exit yet

Please show me, Lord the way to go

To help our lives and values grow !



LIFE’S FORECAST ( 2017 ) 2017/05/27

The heart is full with joy complete

For love of God is ever sweet

There is no reason to complain

Nor purpose needed to explain

Life’s forecast dwells in peace with thee

And basks in God’s divinity !

Tis said that life’s a learning curve

While on this road one must not swerve

Remember to keep goal in mind

Let moderation help you find

Those aims that you are searching for

And keys to open freedom’s door !

The world’s no longer black and white

Its color code is sheer delight

Ranging from dark to brightest light

With every tint from day to night !

There may be some eight billion souls

Whose values differ from their goals

While many playing other roles

Find life demanding greater tolls !

I love You Lord, I know You see

That I have placed my faith in Thee

Though time has passed I feel the loss

And why You suffered on that cross !


LAST DESPAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/05/09

I’ve reached the crossroads of my life

The way’s ahead replete with strife

No matter where I search to find

The road I seek does wind and wind.

There is no path that ‘s straight to tread

Both for the living or the dead

My body’s weary, my heart worn

As peace and rest from me are torn.

I fail to see the sense of it

Sometimes I’d simply like to quit

But I’m sure God will still be there

To help us face our last despair !


FINAL GOAL ( 2015 ) 2015/09/12

There is a basket that sits on a shelf nearby

Full of ideas that failed as other hopes did die

It holds the remnants of the life that I desired

When time was young and no special talent required.

There in that simple basket rests a thousand schemes

Amongst the fabric, ribbons, needles, plans and dreams

Pieces of wood, paper, cotton, wishes and bows

All of them part of a past that nobody knows.

The basket is silent, it never had a voice

Like those who filled my life yet never made a choice

Each has their secret cache that only they control

And each at last decides what is their final goal !

When I was but a little girl

Each word I learned was like a pearl

Infused with wisdom I would learn

Throughout my life and in my turn.

The words were short and to the point

Have faith in truth don’t disappoint

Trust in the Lord with all your soul

And keep your eye upon the goal !

Now that was very long ago

Things haven’t changed that much you know

Sometimes I wish I weren’t grown

And that my seeds had not all flown

But this is true I can’t deny

God rules my life since I’m knee high !


OUR CHOICE ( 2015 ) 2015/01/04

I looked for love I searched in vain

I thought that I had missed that train

So long ago I cannot say

I can’t recall upon which day !

There is no reason I can give

Or cite one person to forgive

Why it just happens who can know

For some to stay while others go.

The wheel spins round and round, you see

And stops where it is meant to be

Tis true to note we need control

It is our choice, our aim, our goal !



OUR JUDGEMENT DAY ( 2014 ) 2014/12/13

Soon dark will come and curtains fall

I hear those faroff voices call

They speak to me of distant times

Of other places, other climes.

It brings to mind those yesterdays

When life seemed full of pleasant ways

And God and man together were

In league against old Lucifer.

But now all rules are cast away

As nearer moves our judgement day !


FRUSTRATION ( 2014 ) 2014/08/27

The childhood dreams we tuck away

To wait upon a latter day

When life and time will both comply

Enables us to make a try !

While seeming lost a way was found

To keep our feet upon the ground

There learn to seek a worthy cause

That earns results and not applause !

The simple fact that we shall find

It does not help to act unkind,

And in the end as time runs out

There is no sense to cry or shout,

For who can hear the silent scream

Of one who lusted for a dream ?


THE GOAL ( 2014 ) 2014/02/21

Today is just another day

I won’t agree, I cannot say

For days are how we mark the space

From birth to final resting place.

The life of man is counted so

Weeks, months and years do come and go

We rise and fall and make a choice

We silence keep or use our voice.

If useful life is what we choose

The path we take may win or lose

When all is done and we are free

The goal we seek, eternity !
