Time  is  passing,  tick  tock,  tick  tock,

The  hands  keep  moving  on  the  clock

Minutes  are  speeding  one  by  one

From  early  dawn  till setting  sun.

How fast  our  lives  do  melt  away

While  none  have  found  a  way  to  stay

Help  us,  oh  Lord,   to  seek  a  trail

Where  excess  time  may  be  for  sale.

Let’s  close  our  eyes and  hope  and  pray

That  tomorrow  could  be  the  day

We’ll  ring  a  bell  and  yell  ” surprise ”

And  never  more  exchange  goodbyes  !

 

 

 

THE LOOKING GLASS (2020) 2020/05/17


Daily I glimpse myself as I slip past

My shadow in some forlorn looking glass

Who is that creature smiling back at me

Without those worried cares that used to be ?

Our lives have changed and time keeps moving on

To end up in a place called ” once upon ”

We all must learn to live and laugh and cry

Before it is our turn to say ” goodbye ” !

Do you  know why I’m missing  you

From early morn till  nightfall too

I   cannot bear you are not  here

Please bundle up,  get back in gear.

The sky is  falling,  have you heard

My heart hangs onto  every word

Tis true, I  shan’t see you again

But no  regrets,  remember when !

 

TO FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES DEPARTED FROM MY LIFE

 

FAREWELL MY CHILD (2019) 2019/02/21

I really don’t know how to hide 

This sadness that I feel inside 

I’ve tried so hard to do it right 

E’en though I’m lost, night after night. 

The ache is there and won’t subside 

And all because my child has died 

Love’s all we’ve got no matter what 

The grief remains though we may not. 

I love you now, I always will 

Until my heart at last is still !

There are so many varied things that I have learned to do

Twixt time and need and fuss and rush before my life is through

Yet I recall the one and all that is most overdue

I’ve tried so hard, I don’t know how, I cannot say  “adieu” !

 

TO MY SON.

 

 

A MOTHER’S FAREWELL ( 2018 ) 2018/10/19

Oh my dearest child, what shall  I do

When your time on earth with us is through

As your voice is silenced fore’er more

You will knock no more upon my door.

We shan’t have those chats of heart to heart

Like we did before we had to part

I’ll miss you for my remaining days

Remembering  your familiar ways.

This will not change and can never be

Since God has chosen to set you free !

WE SHALL MISS YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/10/10

We’ll miss you love, when you have gone

And seek God’s strength to carry on

Twill be so strange as in this case

We’ll ne’er again meet face to face.

Nor shall we ever ” tete a  tete ”

As soon we may tend to forget

How much we pray for one last kiss

Too late we all have been remiss !

 

TO SAY GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/18

There are no words that can help explain

The length and depth of a mother’s pain

Losing a child no matter the age

To an illness or another’s rage !

Through the passage of time, aches may fade

As sadness and loss are all displayed

Seems the worst of all that can be said

Are that those we have loved are now dead,

And with heavy heart and tearful sigh

Were denied the chance to say goodbye !

 

 

CURTAIN CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/10/13

What does one seek after the midnight hour

Neath the veil of darkness and loss of power

When the stilled air deserts its resting place

And we bid farewell to eternal grace

May the love of God now protect us all

From the final cut of the curtain call !

 

 

SUMMER DAYS ( 2016 ) 2016/09/02

Let’s say goodbye to summer’s days

With all her happy carefree ways

It’s sunny nature, flimsy clothes

A boater’s call of “thar she blows”,

A picnic lunch upon the beach

And no place left the sand can’t reach !

Well times do show and pass away

As we wake to another day

And realise that summer’s gone

While fall’s been left to carry on

But wait, there must be more to see

For time does reach eternity !

 

BID ADIEU ( 2016 ) TO LANCE ROBINSON 2016/06/01

Sometimes our dreams just go astray

Or fickle fate gets in the way

Sometimes we’re stopped cold in our track

Seems like there is no turning back.

Sometimes it feels as though we’re trapped

And all our hope is lost or strapped

Sometimes the love we live each day

Does fade and die, perhaps decay.

There is no promise we may keep

Once we have slipt into last sleep

The best that’s left for us to do,

A grateful smile and bid adieu !

 

 

 

FAREWELL FRIEND ( 2016 ) 2016/01/10

Tis sad to think that you and I

Too soon will take our last goodbye

It’s been so very long indeed

I know not how we shall proceed,

The time has gone the end draws near

Remember, I still hold you dear.

We have been friends forever now

It’s time to cut the chain somehow

And when and if there comes that day

When either one should go away

It’s not because we did not care

It’s that one is no longer there !

 

NO CHANCE ( 2013 ) 2013/11/02

How sad it is to bid goodbye

To close the door and wonder why

The past is never far behind

It lingers long upon the mind

And carries on its tethered wings

The burden of forgotten things.

I thought with time I might forget

Those moments bearing deep regret

To be so sorry for the day

I should have said don’t go away,

But you are gone and time will tell

We had no chance to say farewell !
