NOTHING GOOD ( 2020 ) 2020/06/28

Hypocrisy  is  all  around

It  emanates  up  from  the  ground

And  fills the  world  with  poison  air

To  propagate  our  great  despair

How  little  do  we  know  or  mind

Of  all  the  history  we  find  ?

The  whole  truth  is  what  all  should  crave

If  we  are  to  be  strong  and  brave

Can  we  survive  this  huge  attack

When  will  we  have  our  honor  back  ?

The  future’s  grim,   misunderstood

Without  God’s  love  there’s  nothing  good  !

Lord  help  us  to  remember  this

That  life  is  not  a  hit  or  miss

Its  purpose  has  been  clearly  known

And  pathways  have  been  rightly  shown.

The  way  ahead  may  seem  obscure

We  need  to know  that  road’s  secure

Before  we  take  our  dreams  to  task

And  of  our  God  all  favors  ask  !

 

TRY TO SURVIVE ( 2020 ) 2020/03/26

Dear Lord above please set us free

From much of life’s indignity

Please teach us now how to survive

These terrors which all seem to thrive

Be thoughtful of each act performed

And to the rules try to conform.

Be kind to those who are alone

And left to linger on their own

Beg God remember everyone

Whose suffering is not yet done

Protect us Lord from daily fright

With rising sun to closing night !

 

THE WONDER OF GOD (2020) 2020/03/25

Outside the window the world awaits

For the Lord to raise the pearly gates

And for all the clouds to disappear

Before we have spent half of the year

The time has arrived and gone away

To leave us bereft and in dismay.

Dear Lord above forgive us our sin

Open our hearts and welcome God in

May we forever live in the glow

Of every wonder God has to show !

Our Father who abides on high

His wisdom reigns down from the sky

Have pity on the earth below

Where man and beast do ebb and flow

We crave Your Help and Tender Care

For soon there will be nothing there.

If man could but sustain his faith

Arising o’er the power of wraith

To triumph and reclaim his right

Hence revel in his God’s delight

Achieve that goal before one dies

Upon God’s help whence love resides !

 

THE ECHOES ( 2020 ) 2020/03/18

Oh blessed Lord, do hear my plea

Have pity on a child like me

I am Your servant sad and low

That folows ever where You go

I wait Your Word with rapid breath

For I am Yours until my death.

There is no day without Your Light

Nor any love that shines so bright

The angels sing Your praise on high

Their voices reaching for the sky

The flutter of their wings is heard

They echo every single word.

I love You Lord and always will

Until earth’s sounds at last are still !

 

I’M NOT AN ANGEL ( 2020 ) 2020/03/14

Oh how I  wish that I had wings

To fly  up high where  angels sing

And  visit  in their  choir loft

As  day  begins,  the light is soft

How  sweet  and clear  their voices are

The  notes ring  out both near  and far.

Oh  how I pray  that I might  be

A  part of  their community

Just  think of  all the joy  we’d  share

If  somehow  I could  tarry there

Truth  is that  cannot be  the case

Cause  I’m  part of the  human  race !

 

I NEED YOU NOW ( 2020 ) 2020/02/25

I  love You  Lord,  You  are to me

My  joy and life’s  Epitome

The  whipped   cream on  my piece of cake

Like  mushrooms  on my filet steak.

You’re  the Beginning  and the End

Of  all my dreams and my best  Friend

I  need Your  love to  help me now

To  get  me through  these  days somehow !

AMEN.

 

 

NEVER ENDING LOVE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/22

I  hear the bells  ring out for me

They  sing a song  of unity

The  melody  I  recognize

It  brings tears  to my tired eyes.

The  night  is father  to the dawn

That  breaks upon the  early morn

To  teach each  all the  patterns of

God  and  His  never  ending love !

 

THERE IS NO CURE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/11

This pain  I feel,  unending  bad

So  far the worst of what I’ve had

I  don’t know how  to stop the ache

It’s  all too real,  no space for  fake.

Somehow  I have  to clear my mind

And  beg of God,  His peace to find

What  is the next that I must do

I  need a moment  to think  through.

The  road ahead  is  blank and dim

I  can’t  proceed,  not without  Him

I’m lost  alone without  a cure

The  end  draws near  of this I’m  sure

God  is my anchor  tried and true

To  Him,  I’ll  be one of His  crew !

 

A DREAM TO FIND ( 2020 ) 2020/02/05

Nightshades  have fallen,  all is dark

Tree  limbs above are  bare and stark

There  is this silence  that abounds

As  nature  softens all  her sounds.

Yet  I  can  see  stars  in the  sky

That  clouds keep  hiding from the eye

Oh  how I wish  that I could be

Some  wise old owl  perched in a tree

Who  comprehends that  hopes unwind

To  help us each  our dream  to find !

 

 

IN THE BEGINNING ( 2020 ) 2020/02/03

Whenever  I think  of the  past

And  ships that  skimmed  o’er  oceans vast

They  traversed  round the world they knew

Adventurous,  historic  too.

Oh  how I wish  that I had known

This  world  before it was  all  grown

Think  what a hoot  it might  have  been

To  be there when  it did  begin !

 

 

 

UNFLINCHING LOVE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/31

When  I was young and full of vim

That  was the time  I first knew Him

It  changed my life  that  very day

For  I began to walk  His way.

How  simple it was,  I did find

As  He brought me  such peace of mind

A  strength  I gathered from above

And  power of  His unflinching love !

 

 

TO SHARE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/26

Let’s  raise our hopes for time  to come

And  praise the Lord  for all  He’s done

Thank  God above for  all His  care

And  willingness  for us  to share.

I’d  like to think  that God  is near

To  stifle  every  single  fear

And  keep us all upon our  toes

Doing the best  that each one  knows !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

WHO HAS HEARD ( 2019 ) 2019/11/21

My  heart cries out  for all the pain

That  visits  man  again,  again

And  where’s  the peace we’re  waiting for

Seems  only stress  walks  through the door.

How  much longer must this  world wait

For  all  its  chaos  to abate,

What  happens to  the good that’s  done

As  years fly  by,  one  after one,

Revering  God,  His  perfect  Word

The  love and  wisdom all have  heard ?

I  cannot  wait  for dawn  to show

From  whence  the sounds of life doth flow

The  darkness of the night  will fade

As  sunbeams from daylight  invade.

The  shadows that are  left behind

As  all  the early hours  unwind

Do  leave with us  this lucent sight

Escaping  emptiness  each  night !

A heart so full  it cannot  breathe

The gift of love from God received

A joy  we all  hope to  believe

With  goals we may at last achieve !

 

 

 

ALL ETERNITY ( 2019 ) 2019/07/25

So often that I’ve wished to be

The star upon your Christmas tree

A candle on your birthday cake

And privy to each wish you make.

I prayed quite hard that you and I

Would be together by and by

And now my world is part of yours

You’re my umbrella when it pours.

There is  a  God who watches o’er

His children that He does adore

I’m positive He loves us all

And picks us up ere we should fall

I’m sure He knew that we might be

In  love for  all  eternity !

A special bit of heaven came knocking on my door

And sounded so familiar, I’m sure we’d met before

Oh my dearest child, you are a wonderment to me

Please come visit me again whenever you are free

I pray that you will share all the laughter and the joy

That God does offer gladly to every girl and boy !

 

 

 

NOAH’S FAITH ( 2019 ) 2019/06/26

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:07 pm

The storm,  it thunders all around

With ne’er a silence to  be found

The  light’ning   crashes in the  dark

Illuminating  all  in  spark

Its odor makes the air smell sweet

As rivers flood through every street

I  wonder if  old  Noah  feared

The wrath of God when it appeared,

Those moments when the clouds did burst

Do you  believe  that  he felt cursed

Or was his faith  in God so strong

He held no fear his whole life long ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

GOD’S COMMAND ( 2019 ) 2019/06/25

Oh my dearest angel wherever you may be

My arms still long to hold  you ever close to me

The years may come and go and never shall we meet

Until the final day,  perhaps on  heaven’s  street

And if that  day can’t happen, I shall understand

That all I have prayed for falls under God’s command !

 

AMEN.

 

 

THE IMPURE ( 2019 ) 2019/06/22

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:09 am

My heart is full, it overflows

Clear from my fingers to my toes

Devoid of malice, free of fear

Anticipating one more year.

I think of Noah and his clan

For this is how our lives began

His holy cause for one and all

Because he answered his God’s call.

I sometimes think we’ve lost our way

With Satan’s help from angels stray

Truth is that I cannot be sure

Who does embrace all these impure !

 

LOVE PROVIDES ( 2019 ) 2019/06/16

A  garden  is  that  special  place

Where hope and fear meet face to face

Where dreams are made or fall apart

And courage wins when tears depart.

An  island  in a  lifelong  storm

Where each must to their strength perform

A  place of peace  where God resides

And  answers  prayers and love  provides !

 

 

GOD’S OPEN DOOR ( 2019 ) 2019/06/13

The sun  comes  peeping o’er the hill

The day is white and  bright and still

Each  morn brings  us another day

Another chance to  thank  and pray.

How  wonderful God’s plan has been

Allowing  all  to  scurry in

We  don’t need any special gift

To help us  smile  or  spirits lift

He’s always there with open door

How can we  ask for any more ?

 

 

 

 

INTO THE BREECH ( 2019 ) 2019/05/28

Now once again into the breech

To learn the lessons life must teach

A change of pace or brusque reply

To say that we shall get on by.

Tomorrow’s not too far away.

Let’s ask  the Lord we’d like to stay

And in these precious moments left

We’ll  make our peace or are bereft !

 

PROXIMITY ( 2019 ) 2019/05/23

I often think the Lord is there

In every garden that we share

With odors that o’ercome the air

And seize upon our senses rare.

A garden is this magic place

In which God lends to us the grace

That brings a smile to each one’s face

Engulfing us in His embrace.

I wish that I could always be

Involved with such an entity

Like plant or flower, vine and tree

Within our Lord’s proximity !

The tender night reveals our fears

The falling rain does hide our tears

The silent breeze will calm our fright

While love of God safeguards each night !
